A trip to Israel should be on your bucket list. The combination of culture, religion, community, history and nature provides an experience that you will treasure for years to come.

Tremendous hiking experience. Of seven Road Scolar trips, this trip is the only one that qualifies as 'moderately challenging'. I would delete the 'moderate'. The guides were very informative. The guest speakers were excellent. This travel course was well worth the time and money. You will learn a lot about Israel. The history is fascinating. The hikes are not to be missed.

This was a wonderful trip. The hiking was challenging, but doable- I really stretched myself! I learned so much about the history of Israel through exploring many historical sites. Our instructor was very knowledgeable, and was able to provide enhanced learning at every site. Our group leader was excellent, and made sure everything was as expected (if not better!) In all, a great experience that I would highly recommend!

A great hike with awesome leaders. Hiking and exercise, valuable info about history, stories about the past who made this country what it has become...all inclusive in this trip. Not for the weakling or poor fit soul, but great for those over 60 who are brave and strong!

Very rewarding program. As a Christian I learned so much about the Jewish faith and particularly enjoyed participating in Shabbat. I got an "on the ground" perspective of the issues that divide Israelis and Arabs rather than relying on what I hear in the media. Great variety of hiking trails. Bring trekking poles. This is not for novice hikers. If you haven't done much hiking be sure to prepare by spending some time on hiking trails. OUTSTANDING guide and leader.
