Here are a few letters from our satisfied tourists:

 

 


"We travelled to Israel to celebrate our two oldest grandsons' Bar Mitzvahs at the Kotel.  We were three generations, including seven children between the ages of 3 and 14.
We enthusiastically recommend Judy as a tour guide.  We used her expertise for two full-day trips.  She engaged the children, teaching them some history, geography, and even a little religion, without them realizing that they were learning. She also told story after story that even the adults found fascinating.
They were two wonderful days!  We would definitely use her services again, if the occasion arose.
Helen and Larry Slavin"

 

 

 

Hi Judy,
Thank you for an incredible trip.  It is amazing how much we packed into one day. Your stories and descriptions of the sites and the land and the history was phenomenal.  Your ability to relate to the children and engage them was also quite fantastic.  We learned so much from you and had lots of fun, too! I hope our paths cross again soon!

All the best,
Heather Appelbaum and Family

Judy-

 

Thank you again very much for Monday.  You taught us so much and made the 9 days time very real for my kids and for myself.
 ...  It is amazing how much Dassi absorbed - she told my husband all about the Herodian house and various other tidbits along the way.
If you get a chance to email the pictures that would be great - whenever
Thanks so much again

Hi Judy!  Just  to let you know that we are back in the states after spending a beautiful rest of the week and shabbos in Yerushalayim.  But nothing came close to the amazing day you gave Aliza and I.  We will never forget it.  As soon as things settle, we will try to e mail you some of the pictures from the day.

Stay well

And thanks again for everything.

Dear Judy,

I had such a great time on the two trips that you took us on that I had to thank you again.  Your knowledge and enthusiasm made each trip special.  I especially enjoyed the secret ammunition factory/architectural dig/tunnel tour.  I have been bragging to all my friends what a fantastic day that was.  Thanks again for making the trip memorable.

Sincerely,

Judy,

 

 I wanted to get this note to you quickly.  Yesterday was one of the best days of my life.  To stand next to the stones of the Mishkan (Tabernacle), to stand where the people of the Bible have stood, to take a "stand" myself in the presence of God was simply indescribable.  As I have experienced in the past touring with you, your expertise, experience and sheer love of the land heightens the experience of a visit to the holy land.  Your love of the land truly shines through.  However, your love of each and every person in your tour is even more impressive.  Each time I have been here you've customized the tour in such a way that each individual feels like the touring the day was made for him or her.  What I remember most from our first trip with you was my daughter with a very short attention span who was not looking forward to touring.  She gets bored very easily.  She loved every minute.  Afterwards she remarked to me "If I had Judy as my teacher in day school I would've paid much more attention."

 

Thanks again,

 

Steve Steinberg, Skokie

I also wanted to thank you for such an amazing trip. You helped make this family trip an amazing experience and one that I will treasure forever. It was great meeting you and spending all that time with you. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Just back from our trip - which was wonderful.

 

Judy was excellent. We spent 2 days with her and everyone loved her.  She was great with the kids (and the seniors!) and a terrific storyteller.  And she arranged for a great driver (even if his vehicle was a little too small for our group).

 

Again, thanks for the recommendation.

 I can't praise Judy enough - she has a unique ability to make touring exciting and interesting for children of all ages, ranging from 6 to 48, in our case.  She knows the country, loves the country and loves the people.  I've recommended her to American families of all Jewish denominations but as a modern orthodox woman she has a particularly unique appeal to the modern orthodox Young Israel type family, which we are. Hire her, don't look back and you'll be overjoyed with your choice.

My family has toured with judy 5 or 6 separate times. She was amazing each time. Creative, responsive, prompt,highly knowledgeable, great with all members of the family, including all age kids etc. She was a able to work well on low budget as well as no budget trips. I would and plan to use her every time we visit.  She is strictly observant and sensitive to and well versed in all of our halachic needs. We daven in the yi of lawrence cedarhurst. Our kids attend halb.

Enjoy
