Amazing Private Tour!!!

July 25th 2017

Our 6 day private tour was incredible! From the start, Shalom helped us create a tour that was perfect for our small group. This was our first trip to Israel for my son’s bar mitzvah and I wanted to make sure that we saw all the must see sights including activities that would be fun for the whole family. And that is exactly what Shalom created! We planned for a year and made some tweaks to the plan along the way and Shalom was always very accommodating. Anytime I had any questions, he always replied quickly and gave me the best information. As soon as we got to Israel, Shalom’s top notch service began as we were met by a greeter as soon as we disembarked from the airplane. He ushered us through the entry process quickly and was very helpful with all our questions and helped up carry our bags to our driver that was waiting for us to take us to our hotel in Jerusalem.

Once we checked in, Shalom’s welcome packages were waiting for us in our room and he even had a box of cookies sent to our rooms on Shabbat! We began our tour at the end of the week after my son’s bar mitzvah. Our tour guide Meni was recommended to us from a friend and Shalom was able to book him for us. Meni was an outstanding guide! He was very engaging and passionate about everything he talked to us about. We learned so much from him and it left us wanting more!! He went above and beyond to educate us and show us the realities of life in Israel and so much of Israel’s history. He really enlightened us and made us feel very safe! Meni’s enthusiasm was contagious. My hard to impress son, was thoroughly engaged with all of Meni’s stories and knowledge wherever we went as we all were. We truly enjoyed his company everyday. He is a very kind and warm person and my family quickly came to adore him.

We hated to have to say goodbye. However, we think we have made a new life long friend and hope to keep in touch! On our departure day, a driver was waiting for us at our hotel as planned to take us to the airport. Everything went very smoothly. Throughout the trip, Shalom kept in touch with helpful reminder emails and replied promptly whenever I had a question. We hope we can return again in the not too distant future as there is so much that we still want to do and see in Israel. We highly recommend Shalom Israel Tours to everyone wanting an outstanding tour of Israel and of course request Meni as your tour guide and you will not be disappointed!!!

Thank you Shalom & Meni for an amazing trip to Israel that has given us so many incredible memories that we will always cherish!!
