About Our Guides
The key to the success of any tour is the tour guide and we take care to work only with those guides who have extensive experience guiding both groups and individuals, are personable and have proven that they conduct themselves with the highest level of professionalism. All our guides have shown themselves to be sensitive to the clients' needs and capable of handling any situation that might arise during the course of the trip. In addition, we take pride in our ability to assign the most appropriate tour guide to each tour, whether it be a family tour, a professional mission or a pilgrimage.
