What our guests write after touring Israel with Shatour

   Thank you again Nathan & Hanna for all that you showed, told and gave to our family to make our trip an outstanding tour through Israel. We look forward to seeing you again.

Everything on the tour was either a lot of fun, very educational, very inspiring or all three. Our son described this as a trip that he and his family will remember for the rest of their lives. We went to every place that you recommended and we wanted to see, and your guide took us to other places that really added to the trip.

Thanks for putting together an absolutely amazing trip. We enjoyed every moment of it.

The grandchildren had the time of their lives. Every hour was a different adventure. They enjoyed going through the bunkers in the Golan Heights, going through the ammunition factory at Ayalon, and climbing on the tanks at Latrun. They enjoyed going in the water at the Dead Sea and the Gulf of Eilat. Actually I think they enjoyed everything!

   It was an extraordinary trip. You allowed us to see an Israel very few tourists are privileged to see. Under Nathan’s guidance we explored unbelievable archaeological sites, walked through the Old City floated in the Dead Sea, marveled at Masada (baths with no obvious way to obtain water? a dovecote? three years of survival!)

As I start to list sites I’m aware of all the places I’ve omitted. As I’m sure Nathan would readily admit, he could have taken us on a tour of Israel lasting years rather than days and never exhausted his repertoire – what an incredible font of knowledge, information and lore!

   It is a pleasure to wholeheartedly recommend Nathan as a guide and Shatour as the tour company. As many have attested, Nathan is a gem. Remarkably knowledgeable, warmly personable, known seemingly by every one in the country and accommodating to all of one’s needs.

He arranged a culinary and wine tour that was delicious, educational and enabled us to meet fascinating players in the wonderful world of Israeli food. I highly recommend it for those with similar interests.

Don’t miss spending time with Nathan – you’ll learn a lot.

   Hi Nathan and Hanna.

We liked our trip so much it’s kind of daunting to even figure out where to start. But here goes. First you guys did a great job of creating a custom trip in terms of schedule, sights, places to stay and eat that matched what our interests, budget and stamina was.

Beyond that, Nathan was just a terrific guide. Yes he explained the sights and the history in a deeply knowledgable way. But much more than that, he both taught and questioned and inspired us to think and discover for ourselves about the history, politics and often unanswerable questions about the region, its people, its opportunities and problems. One of my best teachers taught me that “History is Inquiry” and you (Nathan) are someone who really gets this himself and can inspire this in others, or at least he did in us. In fact the trip has been not so much like a week spent in Israel but more like a start of a learning process that has expanded how we think about many things and how we interact with information and people here. We also had fun! So five stars from us.

David & Angela Weiden

   Dear Ariel,
Thank you for an amazing four days of touring. It was an incredible experience for our family.
It was a pleasure spending the last four days with you. Our family all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we created memories for a lifetime. It’s no wonder people are so passionate about this country and its people.
Hopefully, we’ll see you in our next visit.

The Hakim family

   When celebrating Thanksgiving, it is our family’s tradition to go around the table before we eat and share what we are thankful for this year. Both Rick and I are grateful to have had the opportunity to visit Israel and to celebrate 30 years together in such a special way. We are also thankful that we were able to meet both of you. Our trip was perfect and we have you to thank. We learned and experienced so much…. the perfect blend of history, relaxation, fun, and sightseeing. We have a sincere appreciation for the beauty of the country, the spirit and the sacrifice of her people, and a better understanding of the relationships/conflicts in the region. It was an honor to spend time with someone who has actually met Ben Gurion and has been a part of building and serving a new nation.

   Hi Nathan and Hannah-
We just wanted to say thank you for our wonderful time in Israel. From the moment we got off the plane, to the moment we left we felt well taken care of in every aspect. This is a once in a lifetime trip and we are so happy that we had you to make this experience so special. We learned much more than we ever thought possible and enjoyed all the “fun” activities too!! All three kids got so much out of the trip as well ( in their own way). Eric will never forget the jeep tour , the bullet factory and the tanks. We will send you some pictures soon so that you may be able to build a new website. I am feeling slightly jet lagged now since we just got home yesterday. Stay well. We look forward to planning our next trip with you in a few years (for Eric’s Bar Mitzvah).

Harvey & Jan SchaSharon, Brett, Danielle, Lauren and Eric Mehlmanwartz
