    I found the single room supplement excessive - especially as we spent 3 nights in a Kibbutz.

    Nicola was an excellent local guide and this trip delivered everything I wanted from this trip. Israel is a magnificent and beautiful country often overlooked by people but very rewarding to visit.

    An extra day in Jerusalem would have enabled coverage of the Israel and Holocaust Museums plus entry to the Temple Mount as part of the itinerary.

    It's a very good introduction to a fascinating country, but it's a pricey trip. 18 is also too large a group to move around - lots of time was wasted waiting on people who had wandered off. Food was pretty average

    It's an interesting trip and quite varied. It certainly made me think a great deal more about the origins of Christianity and the Jewish religion. It's very full-on but I like that. It packs it all in.

    The biblical landscape was amazing and different to what I had imagined it to be in Jesus' time.
