Dear David and Adina,
We've been on many tours over the years, but this one was extra-special. The attention to detail, the "service with a (constant) smile", and the outstanding touring and catering were unparalleled.
We're so happy to have gotten to know you both and look forward to touring with you in the future.

You are wonderful guides and very special people. All your planning made for a wonderful trip.
Looking forward to more trips!
Thanks for everything!
Many thanks for a wonderful tour of Iceland. You were both terrific guides and hosts. The food was fabulous, and the staff was TERRIFIC.

Your scholarship and passion for the land and its history were very much appreciated. You helped us feel welcomed and valued as visitors to the Holy Land.
We particularly enjoyed feeling your excitement about the discoveries associated with The City of David. The ending ascent up the stairs heading to the Temple Mount was wonderfully moving, reminding us how anciently Israelites would ascend to the Mount to worship in the Temple.
for reminding me that deep inside I still have the joy of a child
to help me get through every single day.
Going with you to Iceland was like going to Disneyland for the first time.
