It was really an excellent tour, we enjoyed it a LOT. All the details you included in the tour, from the detailed history of Israel, to the van infrastructure to the beer at the end, it was a memorable experience. Menno, our guide and manager at the company, was very professional, polite, and conducted the tour with excellence. Among 7 tours in Israel, this one was definitely the best one.
