I was part of a large group of people who went to Israel for a wedding. The bride and groom wanted to make sure we made the most of our trip and see the beautiful country of Israel. We hit the jackpot with Hands on Israel and Shachar. We went to the Dead Sea, Masada, Jerusalem, the Holocaust Museum, Golan Heights, Acre, Zefat, Jesus' Baptismal site of the Jordan River, Sea of Galilee. This was a very diverse group of people with Jewish, Christian, and Muslim backgrounds and everything in between. Shachar and Roman (our guides) did a very good job of being inclusive of all cultures and religions represented in Israel. Shachar was funny, engaging, and personable. Not everyone can be as cool as Shachar, but Roman also did a good job of making everything interesting and informative. I felt incredibly safe the entire time. Our bus driver, Avi, was a very safe driver and I felt comfortable enough to sleep like a baby on the long trips! For peace of mind in visiting Israel, I highly recommend this company.
