Loved Every Minute, and Mordecai was the BEST!

May 27th 2018

We decided to book a trip for my son’s Bar Mitzvah. I did a ton of researched and narrowed down the selection to 5 tour operators. Shalom was responsive and flexible! We had a short amount of time to squeeze in all of the sights (just 8 days). Shalom helped us to select the activities that best suited our family. Our kids (13 and 15) were engaged the entire time. Mordecai was our guide. He was the perfect fit for us. He knew how to keep the kids interested, and he answered every question clearly. Our joke was “another pile of rocks”, but my kids can explain the historical significance and time period of every site we visited. Shalom also arranged for the Rabbi (Rabbi Bandel) and the Bar Mitzvah ceremony. Rabbi Bandel skyped with my son on Sundays for weeks before we left, so the Rabbi knew my son before we arrived, which made the experience even more special. Shalom also arranged for our restaurants, and anything else we needed. We just asked, and received confirmation the next day! If you are traveling with teens, request Mordecai as your guide – he was the perfect combination of a buddy, and the best history teacher ever!
