The tour of Israel was a comprehensive program that covered the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim history of Israel while explaining the current situations in both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. It is a physically challenging tour as there are uneven cobblestone walkways and many steps up and down especially in Jerusalem. This is a tour for people wanting an in depth presentation on Israel past, present and future.

This was the trip of a lifetime. Both the group leader - Cheryl Meskin and Tour Educator David Wexler - are national treasures and greatly enhanced both the comfort and educational quality of the program. Be sure to ask for them! Highest kudos and recommendations for this trip.

This is a wonderful tour of Israel. Perfect for those who want to visit only Israel and want to cover both the Jewish and Christian historical sites.

This was my seventh and best Road Scholar Trip. The itinerary covered major sites of interest. Especially liked that we had so much time in Jerusalem. The tour educator, Yonatan Kohn, was terrific and provided every detail we needed to appreciate the history and significance of the sites. Our Group Leader, Cheryl Meskin, was personable, entertaining (really), excellent at logistics and problem solving. We "lucked out" with these two guides/companions. Make sure they'll be guiding YOUR trip.

This was an excellent tour that was well organized, interesting and active. The tour guide and leader were outstanding. I would recommend this trip for anyone who want to see an unbiased tour of Israel.

A highly informative, eye-opening, well-organized trip with two excellent leaders (Marty and Cheryl). Would recommend this trip to anyone making a first visit to Israel. Covers the most important areas and sites, including the Golan Heights and a visit to a settlement. Much more to learn and discover, but this is a very good basis for further independent exploration.

Renee from Northbrook,Il This was a fabulous trip with wonderful and knowledgeable guides. The sites, the history, the people on the trip were unbelievable! It's a trip not to be duplicated anywhere. This new state has it all.

I am so grateful to Road Scholar who made my Israel trip so easy to take. I felt prepared for it and had confidence that there was always someone to contact if I had a need regarding travel. The informational and education components of this program was exceptional. I would consider doing it again.
