I joined Trisha’s Israel and Jordan tour back when she was living in Tel Aviv in 2018 and this is the most genuine tour because Trisha simply knows everyone and has local friends in Israel. She even speaks Hebrew! I find Trisha’s life in Israel amazing and I am inspired to lead a life like this! Her tours are unique and you won’t find it anywhere else. Btw, this is my second time visiting Trisha in Israel!

This tour made me more educated of what I know about Israel. I love that there is neutrality by visiting the West Bank. The guides are also neutral and not political! Apart from that, I felt like after this tour, I know Israel in and out. The Jordan tour was also amazing and one of the most unique things I’ve seen in the world! Thank you so much Trisha!!

I love all of Trisha’s trips and I have joined many of them. But this tour of Israel and Jordan is quite unique because Trisha lived in this place and can give an insight about the local life. I have not seen any other tour with this kind of unique itinerary. The visit to the Yemeni family in Acre was my favorite and I have not see that in other Israel and Jordan tours on the Internet. This is a must and I will do it again for sure!
