"The program was excellent and I will recommend it highly for anyone who wishes to tour Israel. Wink, you and Steve did a superb job of planning and organizing the tour, and your guidance throughout was fantastic. You both showed enormous concern for our safety and health. I appreciated the interesting way in which you integrated information about the geography, topography, history, archaeology, religions, and social dynamics of the region. Your presentations were scholarly, very interesting, and infused with good humor! I also appreciated your flexibility of plans which allowed us to tour places not on the original itinerary. Lodging and meals were very good, and the service at the hotels was friendly and very good. All of the fascinating field trips and your presentations along the way have really deepened my understanding of Scripture. Almost any book I turn to in the Bible now speaks of a place we have walked through or at least viewed. It is very exciting! Thank you again for making this wonderful adventure possible for our group."
