Thanks for working with me for two years to have a great pilgrimage to the Holy Land. I promoted this trip as a trip of a lifetime and it more than fulfilled my expectations. I wanted a pilgrimage that including trips to Haifa, Tiberius as well as adequate time in Jerusalem. CTTI’s representative, EyalÂ wasÂ able to customize the tour to meet all of our groups needs with maintaining the cost within acceptable range.Â We stayed in five different but wonderful hotels. Many tour just stay in Jerusalem and make day trips to the different cities. My group thoroughly enjoyed staying the city we were visiting. It allowed us to meet the other guest and hear their stories.
The weather was perfect with the temperature ranging from 65-80 depending on the area.Â November is harvest time in Israel. The fresh fruits and vegetable were plentiful and delicious.Â I was introduced toÂ many ways of preparing fresh fruits and vegetables. My favoriteÂ vegetables each night were the many grilled vegetables.Â Breakfast and dinner were included in our package. The variety and quantity of food offered at breakfastÂ allowed manyÂ in the group to skip lunch. The tour guide was knowledgeable about reasonable place for lunch.Â
The tour guide, Reuben Nevo and the bus drive Albert. were extraordinary. Albert was courtesy and helpful with the seniors of the trip. The passion and knowledge of Israel that ReubenÂ exhibited could not be equaled. Many other tour guides daily stated that we had the best guide in Israel- and I agreed. He was fun, energetic and personable. He was willing to answer every question and my group was loaded with questions from the moment he stepped on bus!
Eyal was in contact by telephone and email to respond to questions and progress of the trip. I hope to bring another group in 2016. Thanks again. We will never read the Bible the same.
