Katz Family

August 5th 2012

Shalom Stark of Shalom Israel Tours arranged an incredible tour of Israel for my family (my husband, me, and 2 of our sons — 15 and 21 years old) for 15 days. I would highly recommend him and his tours to anyone thinking of visiting Israel. He is very accessible — by e-mail and by phone. I called during the daytime here and though it was night (7 hour time difference), he still answered his phone, and he answered all my many questions. Plus, I liked the fact that he was in Israel — that was definitely better to me than a tour operator who wasn’t even in the country I was visiting.


On top of it all — he surprised us with presents! We were given 2 netsticks so my sons had internet service on their laptop computers throughout Israel — even on the bus. We were each given hats and water bottle carriers (a necessity in the heat of the summer), and right before Shabbat when we returned to our hotel room after a long day visiting Qumran, Masada, an Ahava Factory, and the Dead Sea, there was another present awaiting us — a large tray of cookies and nuts. He was just so thoughtful!


This vacation will be long remembered by myself and my family as it was perfect and I attribute that to Shalom Israel Tours.
