G. Abrahams, Sydney, Australia
"The best! A1! From being met at the airport & 'cared for' to the hotel was great. I looked forward to learning more history of the area from Israeli locals like you [Ron Wexler] and the discussions taken from up close with Israeli Arabs. That was an eye opener each time, but I never changed my mind."

"I thought it was mostly very well done. Yaniv [guide] was very well informed and thorough. I wished Daniel [Pipes] would have spoken more as we were traveling on the bus. I thought monk Oliver was a very special person. His love for his fellow man one could see in his eyes. When he spoke it was a delight, I was honored to meet and hear him."
