Re: Our family trip to Israel, April 17, 2015
I wanted to send you this letter, following our recent family trip to Israel over the March break. We had a wonderful time during our trip. Your travel services provided us with a plan, a guide, and an experience that the six of us will remember for a lifetime. Our trip introduced us to the marvels of Israel, and the historical significance of the entire region. We had the opportunity to visit ...
We recently booked our children’s Bar and Bat Mitzvah tour if Israel trip with Kathy at Peerless Travel. Wow, it was an incredible experience. Both my wife and I refer to the trip as being “perfect”, and we are generally hard to impress! From the organization and planing, to helping us with customizing add-ons to the main trip, to being available at a moments notice to answer any last minute questions...
I wanted to take a moment and thank you and Naomi for organizing our trip to Israel this July. My whole family and I unanimously agree that it was the most incredible trip we have ever taken! Israel is something to see. I can clearly see how one falls in love with the country and the people. We were so proud of what our nation could accomplish in such a short time. We experienced so much in 10 days. The archeological dig was amazing, the kids loved the camel and donkey ...
We are home and I wanted to let you know we had a fabulous trip. The tours were great and so informative. I fell in love with Israel and of course I was so sad it took me so long to get there. The hotels were also wonderful. Our favourites were the Sheraton in Tel Aviv the Dan Carmel and David Citadel. In all cases the staff rooms and views were wonderful. Petra was a must see and a definite highlight. All around 5 stars for everything from Rooms to food to general experience we loved it! The transfers from one hotel to the next were seamless as were the flights and the assistance at the airport on our departing trip from Tel Aviv to Rome.Excellent job.
Thank you so very much.
Hope you're doing great!
We just wanted to sincerely thank you and your colleagues for the trip of a lifetime. It was spiritual, meaningful, educational and just a ton of fun. Everything from the magnificent quality of our guide (Shmulik, about whom not enough can be said) to the first-rate accommodations and meals made this an awesome experience. We also shared the trip with a diverse and warm group of people that we now consider close friends. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate our son's Bar Mitzvah.
Thanks to you and your Team for your superb organizational skills and creativity in allowing us to see our Homeland in the best way possible.
How are you? Happy New Year.
I have been meaning to email you since we returned from our trip in August. I sincerely apologize.
I wanted to tell you what a tremendous experience it was for us. We loved every minute of it...
I wanted to spend a moment and thank you and Peerless for a trip of a lifetime!
We had high hopes for our Bat Mitzvah trip to Israel and the trip exceeded our expectations.
The itinerary was expertly put together and as we travelled the countryside we learned and appreciated different things about Israel.
This all culminated in an inspiring Bat Mitzvah service atop Masada at sunrise.
Our tour guide Shmulik was beyond fantastic and we would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a meaningful...
We returned from Israel on August 18th but I haven’t had a chance to contact you because I’ve been scrambling to catch up at work. I just wanted to thank you and Peerless for the wonderful trip that you organized. We all had a fantastic time. The trip was so well organized and full of fantastic experiences – some of which we expected, others which were very surprising. The Rabbi was great and the ceremony was beautiful...
EXCELLENT TRIP EXCELLENT TRIP
Well, we are back and recovered from jet lag. I thought I would take a few minutes to give you some feedback on the trip.
First of all, we had a magnificent time. The family rated it a '10 out of 10', Zahavah loved her Bat Mitzvah and we all loved Israel and the tour. I want to raise some specific areas, mostly of praise, and pass on a few ideas.
1. You. You were terrific, responding quickly and efficiently, with good cheer and the right information. Thank you.
2. Our guide...
Thank you again for encouraging us to go on the trip. Our son Michael did indeed read from Exodus during the Bar/Bat Mitzvah cermony, which was most memorable, as was the entire trip.
I wanted to underline to you that our guide Neil Eisenstadt was excellent (very informative, knowledgeable and friendly), and we thank you for this.
I would like to take this opportunity (belated as it is) to thank you, Ehud, Ahron, Shimon, and the rest of the group at Peerless for making my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah Israel tour an unforgettable experience. To take a group of 7 unfamiliar families, 38 people, ranging in age from six to eighty-something, mix in jet lag of different degrees (people from Montreal, Toronto, Western Canada, and Australia!), add in a hectic schedule, and unbelievable heat, and transform them to a cohesive group, touring a country with thousands of years of history, is an incredible undertaking that Ahron, and Shimon performed with the illusion of it being an effortless task (they even seemed to enjoy themselves)...
Just wanted to send a quick note to say that we had a great time touring Israel. Even though the itinerary was aggressive, and we would have liked to spend more time in places like Haifa and Tiberias, we realize that we can`t expect to see everything, in such a short time.
Danny the guide, was personable and knowledgeable. Overall, a terrific trip.
Thank you to Peerless, Yahaloma and all the Families who helped make this experience so wonderful!!!
I have a digital mountain of video and photo files to help keep these memories close to my heart and am looking forward to sharing and in turn seeing all of your precious images. I believe that Shea Faigan was interested in hosting a file sharing site for this purpose and will leave that to him (He won the privilege in a scrabble game). Just a few pictures with this email, I will try to send a short video clip in a separate email.
Just wanted to express our family's appreciation for a terrific trip to Israel
that you organized at Peerless for our grandson Harry Sahlit's Bar Mitzvah.
It was a wonderful experience for all concerned. The Bar Mitzvah
ceremony on Masada was very moving and the whole trip was most
enjoyable. We had a great time! It was an unforgettable experience
that we shall always remember.
