What people are saying about Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial

This tour was the highlight of our two-week trip to Israel. Ehud was the most incredible guide. Not only was he incredibly knowledgeable, but he tailored every part of the tour to our interests. He introduced us to some wonderful restaurants, gift shops, and coordinated our visit to Bethlehem (which was truly wonderful!). I cannot thank him enough for the experience he provided my mom and I!

We were treated to a very eclectic small group of different nationalities and a very cultured guide again, well done Samuel
