1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Too many to pick any out, we visited so many wonderful places.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for quite long days, there are so many things planned during the day. It also helps if you are reasonably fit and agile, it does get very hot and there’s quite a lot of walking nvolved.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Our driver called at several shops and enterprises away from towns, that were run by local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent, everything was organised so well. We had an excellent guide, we were never held up anywhere, tickets were obtained beforehand and things went like clockwork! We stayed in good hotels and a very good kibbutz. Highly recommended.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Seeing the places you have only read about, or seen on film. The authenticity of antiquity.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

If you wish to enter the Dead Sea, water shoes or flip flops or similar are not optional; they are mandatory. The seabed is covered with salt crystals that are very sharp and very, very painful for bare feet. Some of our group turned back quickly. I've been on the Jordanian side of the Dead Sea, which is rocky and uncomfortable; the spot we entered the water requires water shoes or flip flops or similar.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

At the kibbutz, we interacted with local people. Elsewhere, we had rather limited contact with locals. I can't comment on environment or conservation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

It's a wonderful experience to experience bucket list sites. Be prepared for crowds.
