TESTIMONIALS

The tour of Israel and Petra was beyond words…it was fabulous!   I not only enjoyed the variety of activities but also enjoyed meeting the variety of people on the trip.  It will be the trip of a life time!  Sharon A., Toronto, RTT 2015

I only wish I could do the the trip all over again.

I doubt if one could possibly find a better experience than what Paula planned for us in Israel.  The variety of cultures and people we met and questioned, the history, geography and great group to travel with and the consistently outstanding food and unique restaurants and hotels were fascinating… the freshest and most meaningful tour that I have ever been on.

Laura B, Toronto 2012

I absolutely loved the tour.  In fact, I have been telling everyone that it was the best tour I have been on and I travel a lot and have done many tours.
