    It is a little scary when you live in the USA and book a tour with UK company out of London. Let me tell you this was one of the best experiences my wife and I have ever had. Everything went off lperfectly. From the tour guide to the airport shuttle drivers, everyone performed their duties flawlessly and with great courtesy. Would highly recommend it to anyone and plan to use them again in the future.

    An excellent tour with an experienced and helpful guide, Hilik Silfin, who not only explained the historical significance of what we were seeing but related this to current experiences of life in Israel. good accommodation and efficient transfers made this a real trip of a life-time.

    Our 10 day tour of Israel revealed the astounding layers of history (modern and ancient), culture, and sights. Our tour guide, Hilik, did an outstanding job balancing the secular with the religious, history and opinion, levity and seriousness. Several times he adjusted the schedule to make sure we saw things well, and the bus driver took longer, scenic routes. The only criticism was that the tour was a bit large (36 to 42).We never felt unsafe, and were always stimulated by the expected and unexpected. Great tour that informs, entertains, and challenges your beliefs.

    We had a group of fourteen ranging in ages from 24 to 89 from all over the world and it was amazing! Almost everyone had booked through different agencies and then been outsourced again so that was a little confusing. For example when booking the tour the afternoon at the dead sea was included but on arrival the paper work I received said I would have to pay extra. In the end everything that I expected was included and the only point that could improve the tour would be to have at least a half day in Tel Aviv included. Our guide/bus driver was Haim and he was fantastic, for the first three days he had a lot of people off side.

    I hardly know where to begin. Our group was small consisting of only 11 (eight Americans, two Brits and one Aussie) combined together from six travel agencies. We got along marvelously largely due to our guide and driver Doron Hoffman. The Mercedes bus/van which would seat 15 or 16 was new and always clean and neat and very comfortable. Ours was a Holy Land Christian tour and the sites we visited were just amazing - right out of the Bible, supported with Scripture. We had a couple of requests not on the itinerary, one a camel ride, that Doron very graciously accommodated. We, the whole group feel the same, can not say enough about Doron. He has a great sense of humor, is very proud of Israel and is extremely knowledgeable! His English is probably better than mine and he is conversant in all subjects concerning Israel from society and cultural, to history, to politics, to the Bible and the many many sites we visited. We will be taking another trip to Israel and it will be with Rent a Guide Israel Tours and Doron Hoffman!!!

    This tour gets five glorious stars! Our guide, Doron, has degrees in history and archaeology and was a wealth of knowledge. We saw so many historical and biblical sites -- too numerous to mention but all the major Holy sites that I have read about since I was a child. This was a very moving experience for me.
