We’ve always wanted to visit the Holy Land together. This was my husbands first time. He really wanted to learn about my Jewish background as well see the main Christian sites so this tour was the perfect balance. It was a bit hot for us – we wnt in July but otherwise, perfect. Thank you thank you and Jonathan was such a delight.
