This has been my most memorable trip ever! From our very knowledgeable tour guide, Yair, our great group of fellow travelers, hotels and even our bus driver, this turned out to be a fantastic trip. The GREEN bus was the best!! Probably my most memorable part of the trip was being baptized in the Jordan River. Thanks Tosh for doing the honors for us. I’ll never forget walking Palm Sunday road, the Stations of the Cross, going into Christ’s tomb, receiving communion and drinking the wine with our group plus Ben singing. My funniest memory was floating in the Dead Sea and not being able to get out of the water. Thanks Bev for your help. From the time we landed in Tel Aviv until we left every day was a new adventure. All of the people were very friendly. I would recommend this trip to anyone who’s thinking about it. Best trip ever!

The hotels had many issues, you would expect the accommodations to be top notch and they weren’t. Other than that it was a rewarding experience.

Awesome trip. A superb 15 days, exploring Egypt, Jordan and Israel. This was our first trip abroad, and it was wonderful. We had expert tour guides in each country. The hotels were excellent, full of character representing that region and fun. The itinerary was full everyday - awe-inspiring ancient and holy sites, all presented in context with the journeys, places and significant events as written in the Bible. We visited the Pyramids, Catherines Monastery, Petra, Dead Sea, Sea of Galilee, Jordan River, Masada, and quite a few of the earliest Jewish, Roman and holy sites in Jerusalem, including Mount Olive, and Mount Zion. Our Israel Guide, Latel was incredible and very knowledgeable. She took her time to insure we all were following the her discussions and answered a lot of questions. She also showed a lot passion for the areas we visited. She took the time to explain the sites, the history and their purposes. There was always free time for us to explore the sites independently. Idell (Muhammad) our Egyptian guide was also very knowledgeable of the sites visted in Egypt. He was very interactive with the group and got to know us all. Super friendly and passionate guy.
The trip can be exhausting at times, full with visiting sites. Set your expectations correctly of the tour, the cultures, regions, and the travel, and you will realize an experience of a lifetime.

What an amazing trip! From the breathtaking beauty of Mt. Sinai, which filled my soul, to fun Wadi Rum and amazing unbelievable Petra, and finally to Israel which revealed a spiritual experience never felt before. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience! Our guide, Yoram, made us feel welcome and secure. He was very knowledgeable, articulate, patient and caring. He guided 34 pilgrims efficiently and competently. Benny, our driver, was an excellent driver. This was quite an experience!

Our tour and tour guide was fabulous but the company AIT America Iseral Tour tried to screw us with the hotels we were suppose to have and they put us up in a DUMP IN A VERY BAD PART OF TOWN and we were suppose to be in 5 star hotels every night but that one wasn’t even a 1 star I would never use that company again Thank You

Wonderful tour with an exceptional tour guide Yair! The sites were amazing and the tour ran so smoothly. If there were any miscues, none of the group was aware! I would highly recommend AIT for any holy land visit.

Amazing time. Accommodation and food top class. Yair our tour guide had an amazing knowledge of history but more importantly the biblical footsteps of Jesus.
Highly recommended and will be returning next year to include the cruise of Pauls journeys.
Will be looking forward to catching up with Yair.

We had the most unforgettable journey on our recent trip to Israel!!! Our guide Tamar is so knowledgeable and offered great information at every site we visited. She allowed our Pastor Brad to give a Biblical perspective in some of the areas such as communion in the Garden Tomb region! Our bus driver Josie was THE BEST! We never felt unsafe on this trip! I highly recommend AIT and will use them for future travel to Israel.

We had high expectations for our Israel trip. The staff of AIT were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Our driver was terrific and it isn't easy driving that huge bus on the narrow streets. As good as all of that was, it was our guide Shira Boso who put this experience "over the top". Her Biblical awareness and historical knowledge was impressive. She had the ability to address every question with factual answers and did a great job of being inclusive with each member of our group.

A 5 star experience. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide, a comprehensive tour of notable sites and excellent accommodations at 4 hotels. The air conditioned bus was state-of-the-art and very comfortable. The driver was more than competent in navigating us through cities and the countryside. I couldn't ask for a better experience.

Overall tour was excellent.
The lunch stops were disappointing. We were brought to malls to eat in food courts, not being able to experience native foods.
Museum selections were very good. Needed more time at the Museum of the Jewish People.
Tour was rushed. The hotel locations and amenities were very good.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable. The itinerary we received was not followed. Too much time was spent at markets for shopping.

We requested a Catholic guide but our guide was not Catholic. Some of his interpretations of the Gospel were not Catholic. Also, stops for kibbutz winery and diamond store were not on our itinerary but meant for commercial shopping purposes and took up time. Also, they never found us an ATM on the whole trip. The Masada tour took up too much time and is not important for Catholics. Zvi was polite and bus driver was very good. On other tours I've been on, the guide during the bus trip faces the group to give commentary. It would have been helpful but I understand that it is not safe while bus is moving. Hotels were OK but glitches like room keys that don't work ( 3 times for me at Dead Sea hotel).

I enjoyed traveling to all of our designated sites; I enjoyed our tour guide. He was well versed in his responsibility to us and all of the information provided to us.
However, the meals provided at the hotels were very limited and more to their standards instead of a combination of theirs and their visitors liking.

This was an awesome tour! The days went fast as they were packed with adventure going to explore the sights where Jesus walked. It was also astounding to hear of the country's history by our fabulous guide, Yair! The hotels were luxurious and the food was excellent! I told my friends I was in hummus heaven! The vegetables were fixed in delightful ways which made it a health nut cuisine also.

This was my third time on “The Roots of Your Faith” tour.
The guides we had each time were wonderful and filled with knowledge about the history Israel and all the biblical sights we went to. The hotels were phenomenal with the exception of one, “The Europa”. The Europa was a bit of a let down after being in the other hotels we stayed in.
I would definitely recommend this tour.
