We had a 2 week tour of Israel including a day-trip to Petra in Jordan. Our Middle Eastern travel agency organized an itinerary based on our interests in history, archaeology and religion. Our guide had a prodigious knowledge of all of these areas and more. Some of the sites included in the itinerary were unknown to us despite our research but proved to be of great interest; we were glad they had been included.
All of the details of our trip were well arranged. Throughout our trip we felt well cared-for by our agency and confident that any issues that might have come up along the way would be dealt with by them. If we return to Israel, as we would like, we would most definitely use their services again.
Jerusalem is a most amazing place, even for fairly experienced travelers like us. The layers of history there are many and it was a thrill to be in places we had read about. Many civilizations have left their mark in the region and it was fascinating to see how they took from their predecessors. Acre was especially exciting in this regard.
We learned as well about contemporary issues in the country and region.
Worshippers at the Western Wall were exuberant, even transported. At Masada and Petra it was thrilling to see where history had taken place. Yad Vashem, the holocaust memorial, was important to see, but not easy. The Israel Museum was not to be missed, especially the Dead Sea Scrolls which are wonderfully displayed.
We wouldn't have made any changes.
