Sally D. from Norwood, NJ; traveled to the Galapagos Island
Now that I’ve settled in Jose, Celia and I wanted to thank you for an incredible journey. Everything was fantastic from the minute the rep met us at the airport in Quito until we flew home. The boat was fantastic, well kept and well staffed. Our cabin was huge and Celia’s was perfect. The crew, captain and guide on the Petrel were wonderful. Because Jose is fluent in Spanish, we had the opportunity to speak with the crew and learn more about their everyday lives. The chef was amazing and the food was super fresh. I ate every Ecuadorian dish he made! The men on the boat were so kind and helpful. Incredible excursions, snorkeling, the guide Harry was a wealth of knowledge and a pleasure.
Pikaia lodge was one of the most incredible places we have ever stayed. Funniest part was we were the ONLY guests at the whole resort!! Fine with us, we also had an amazing guide, incredible food and had wonderful conversations with the staff.
Jose was super impressed by how well we were taken care of at every juncture, not a bag to haul or a logistic to figure out.

Perry N. from Los Angeles, CA; traveled to Morocco
We just got back from the Morocco/Spain trip yesterday and I wanted to thank you both for putting together a great trip. It more than met all our expectations, especially the lodgings and camel ride in the Sahara. Our guide, Laila, was outstanding. We talked about what we wanted from the tour and she delivered. She added a real personal touch that we wouldn’t have gotten on our own, or from a large group tour. We also appreciate your monitoring our progress. We talked with the local tour office several times. They wanted to make sure we were happy. Overall, this was one fantastic trip. Thanks again for all your work on putting this together. It was a “trip of a lifetime.”

Jane H. from Durham, NC; traveled to Israel
Hi Jennifer- the trip to Israel was amazing! I found it to be a really intense experience- all the religion and conflict contrasted with easy going beauty of Jaffa and Tel Aviv. Jerusalem is like going to a different world.
I was trying to think if what I liked the most and I cannot tell you.
So my tour-guide was really special-Shai Abutbul- I cannot say enough good things about him. I would recommend using him for any one you are sending to Israel. he was extremely knowledgeable about history, religion, archaeology, and the current situation. he was open about explaining whatever I wanted to ask. he really just seemed to understand what I was interested in and we ended up switching up a couple of items in the itinerary, even though it meant one really long day for him. on the third day of my trip we went to Meggido, Galilee, Golan heights and the Syrian border and then drove back along the border of Syria and Jordan, spent some time in the Jordan river valley.
I loved Jerusalem it was so strange for a nonreligious person. I felt like an alien there. or maybe like they were all aliens- I am not sure which.
Masada was really cool but also really intense and crazy. I loved Ein Gedi- i think it would be cool to camp there. The dead sea swimming was really interesting. Golan Heights was very interesting from a historical perspective and there is an army base on a high hill on the Syrian border you can look out and see what has been happening in that area. Tel Aviv and Jaffa are a must see.
thank you again for arranging such a wonderful tour, especially on very short notice. I always know I cant count on you guys!
Liz S. from Thronhill, Ontario, Canada; traveled to Peru
Thank You - So much for the amazing trip you put together for me and my granddaughters. It was a trip that will be forever remembered. Your operators on the ground were wonderful. It was gratifying to know that someone will be taking care of us at all locations. The hotels in general were very comfortable and the staff very helpful. Our guides were so nice, especially the guide out of Cusco, Diego Valle. I would recommend you without hesitation.
Natasha Y. from Rockville, MD; traveled to Spain & Portugal
Hi Eitan ,
We are back after an exceedingly enjoyable trip. We saw a lot of the cities we visited and the guides were invariably well informed esp the ones in Seville and Granada and spoke fluent English. Car travel as you said, was very easy , so was travel by train .
Your choice of hotels was good each being located centrally, which made it easy for us to get around . We thought that Seville was the nicest of the cities we visited and Granda offered the best sightseeing experience.
Had we spent more time in Madrid we would have liked to visit the Escorial palace/monastery....
Thanks for organizing this for us . We really had a wonderful time .
Susan B. from Boca Raton, FL; traveled to Israel
The trip was fabulous! How can one not love Israel and all it's history.
Ezra once again was fantastic and I loved doing the new options that Elisa and I did not do during our previous trip. The jeep ride in the Golan Heights was an adventure and I liked the geo-political tour as well. My husband loved all the history and architecture that we visited as well. I think we wore him out by day 5.We had a couple of very hot days (100 degrees) so Ezra rearranged our itinerary to do all the museums one the days so we wouldn't be out the severe heat.
I almost missed the extra VIP service at the airport because the itinerary stated that we we to meet the driver at the baggage claim area. Our plane did not land at the gate, but on the tarmac and we were to take a tram to the main airport. I got on the tram because I wasn't looking for a sign with our names on it, but Harvey spotted it and we were whisked off to customs in a flash. And having it in reversed was also fantastic. I am duly spoiled.
The Carlton in Tel Aviv was nicely appointed, but small. The breakfast was very nice. The David Citadel was once again a fabulous hotel, our room I think was recently redone and had a very nice bath and storage area for clothing overlooked the old city and pool. The Mitzpe Hayamin was a nice retreat with a nice upgraded room. This time we tried the Muscat Restaurant one evening an enjoyed it very much.
Thank you for helping us plan this memorable trip. And I thank my wonderful children as well for providing us with this wonderful opportunity.
Martin R. from Bethesda, MD; traveled to Peru
The trip to Peru was among the best we’ve ever taken. The folks in Peru were terrific and took great care of Sue and me. The tour guides were outstanding. Everything went smoothly. The JW Mariott hotels in Lima and Cusco were beautiful and provided great service and excellent meals. Both were well-located. When we returned to Lima after our excursion to the Andes, they upgraded us to one of the huge corner suites, which was so large it was possible to get lost in the dark. The Inca Terra in Aguas Calientes was also beautiful and the dinner we had there was memorable.
We were very pleased with the itinerary you came up with, especially with regard to the day we went from Lima to Machu Picchu without spending more than a few minutes in Cusco. Many people on our cruise had altitude sickness in Cusco, but we did not. When we went back Cusco after 2 days in MP, we slept well and hiked around with no problems.
Peru was definitely the highlight of our trip. If we go back, you will hear from us.
Thanks so much and best regards,
