Dear Danny, On behalf of all our group, Meitar Tours, I would like to thank you for the wonderful tour on Saturday 21.11.09 to Masada. Your knowledge of our past history and your expertise in archeology helped us better understand one of the most inspiring and exciting, though tragic events, of Jewish heroism and history during the Roman occupation of the Holy Land. Your guidance, patience and easy going manner made this tour a wonderful experience. I hope that next year we can plan together another tour that will cover another era of the rich history of the Holy Land,
Imah, Johanita and myself would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for the outstanding hospitality and guidance that you gave us, we certainly feel a lot more knowledgeable about Israel and maybe a little overwhelmed by the situation there. .. Many thanks for a wonderfully memorable stay in Israel and hope to see you again soon. Kind regards……………Peter, Johanita and Marie
