Ettleman Family

September 15th 2014

We had only 8 days in Israel. While my husband had been there a few times before, it was my first time, and I wanted to see as much as possible in the short time we had, so I contacted Shalom to help us plan/put together the perfect itinerary.

He suggested an itinerary and was beyond patient with us as our friends and family also gave input. He took everything into account and came up with the PERFECT plan to visit the Golan Heights, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and left room to add or change things once we were there. Shalom arranged the hotels for us (except for one which we did on our own since we were using points) and suggested restaurants and activities to do for when we were on our own.

We were treated as VIPs from the second we stepped off the airplane (yes, we were greeted right off the airplane, not even after going through customs) through the end of the trip. 

Our tour guide Yehuda got to know us well, and often suggested “just one more stop because you’ll love it.” – and it was ALWAYS worth it when he did!

Shalom kept both our interests and budget in mind and created a vacation that will forever be so special to my husband and me. We could not have asked for a better tour company to organize and better tour guide to show us around. 

We have already suggested Shalom and Yehuda to everyone who even mentions thinking of going to Israel, whether it’s their first time or hundredth!
