Thank you!! Just what my husband and I were looking for. I am Jewish and he is Christian and we wanted to see both perspectives. This tour was jam-packed and we loved it. Thanks to Jonathan for his smooth planning and making this dream trip possible.

Wonderful tour. Lot’s of sites, good hotel options and not such a big group. We had 18 people with us and lovely people. Enjoyed dinners on our own and with our new friends. Highly recommend this tour and Shalom Journeys!
