This company took such good care of me.

Review for: Heritage of the Holy Land

This company took such good care of me. Helped me every step of the way in a very unsettling time in our world. This is the only company I would book a tour with when I come back. They went above and beyond to make sure I was well taken care of and safe and even went beyond!

Across The Jordan River

Review for: Across The Jordan River

We just returned from this tour and we had a great time. Huge fan of our tour guide, Jerry!! He is by far the very best tour guide we have ever had in our many years of traveling. He was funny, very knowledgeable, very aware of needs of our group, and took care of us like we were his family. Highly recommend this tour and Jerry as a guide. The tour was great. Jerry was fantastic and transfers were perfect and on time.
