Testimonials

A little taste of what our guests have to share after experiencing Israel with Shatour:

 

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!

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.

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.

All our best,

“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).  All the best, Sharon, Brett, Danielle, Lauren and Eric Mehlman

Dear Nathan and Hanna Shapiro,

My family and I would like to thank you for the wonderful trip that you planned for us in Israel. Our accommodations were excellent. The hotels were all comfortable and they all had excellent food. We are officially all spoiled. As we have now returned home we are trying to figure out how we can make some of your good food here. My kids even like your food. I guess Israel really is the land of milk and honey. Also the hotel locations were very good.

I want to also thank you for inviting us to share a meal with your family on Shabbat. It really was a positive experience for my family to spend time with your family and in your home, especially on Shabbat. I really appreciated it.

Also we give our highest praise for Shooki’s professional job of being our tour guide. He went the extra mile, and along with you showed us the very best of Israel and it’s people.

Thank you for your friendship.

Sincerely,
The Bengtson’s: David, Sue, Emily, and Sarah

Dear Nathan and Hanna,

I just want to tell you what a great week we have had in Israel. Danny was an excellent host and guide, and he went above and beyond the call of duty to guide us. He was extremely knowledgeable and insightful, and not only showed us the popular sites, but also things the larger tour groups never see, and things we never would have found on our own, such as Abu Hassan’s Hummus in Tel Aviv, and the house of Simon the Tanner,the ancient Galilee Boat at the Yigal Alon Center, and the Wall tunnel tour, the walking tour of Jerusalem, and the Church of the Ascension, and Oskar Schindler’s grave, and too numerous to count other fascinting things.

Thank you for putting together this excellent tour. We especially loved the Kibbutz Kfar Blum and the Arthur Hotel.

Our thanks to you both and to Danny, once again.

Drew and Jackie
