The trip was amazing! The sights, the history, the architecture, everything was incredible! It is the most dynamic place I have ever been to in my life, and I would go back in a heart beat.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Truly the trip of a lifetime! I honestly did not know what to expect or what was in store for me. Between the daily influx of news reports about Israel, and the conflicting comments from my friends, coworkers, and neighbors, it was certainly hard to imagine what to expect from the Holy Land. The trip was amazing! The sights, the history, the architecture, everything was incredible! It is the most dynamic place I have ever been to in my life, and I would go back in a heart beat. I have to thank Inspiration for all of their hard work and preparation that went into this trip. While we were out exploring and touring the land with the best tour guide, the members of Inspiration were hard at work handling all of the details. We were greeted at the airport, escorted to our buses and hotels, and our luggage was delivered seamlessly from hotel to hotel. We were able to rest assured trusting Inspiration with all of these details, so we could enjoy our days and focus on what we were seeing and feeling. The staff members at Inspiration were inviting, welcoming, and friendly. Despite what I'm sure were stressful days for them trying to take care of 700 people, they were always ready to listen to our exciting stories and answer any questions we had about the trip. Thank you to everyone at Inspiration and for partnering with In Touch Ministries...both amazing and upstanding companies!! :)

Everything from the tour guides, bus drivers, luggage placement, flight arrangements, and food was handled very specifically and meticulously. I am going to talk about this trip for a while, and hopefully all of the memories will become etched in my mind! I would go back in a heartbeat and I'm sure I would travel again through Inspiration! :)
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
This trip and entire experience was amazing!!! At a time when most people would be afraid to travel to Israel, our group through In Touch Ministries had 16 full buses of tourists exploring the great country. I was thoroughly impressed with the organization and logistics of the trip. Walking into the Tel Aviv airport and having no idea what would await me, I immediately spotted people from Inspiration who greeted us, welcomed us, and led us to where we needed to be. At each hotel we were welcomed and served with awesome buffets of food for breakfast and dinner. Upon check out, all we had to do was place our luggage outside of our rooms, and it was delivered to our rooms at the next hotel. It was seamless and allowed us to enjoy our trip even more!! Everything from the tour guides, bus drivers, luggage placement, flight arrangements, and food was handled very specifically and meticulously. I am going to talk about this trip for a while, and hopefully all of the memories will become etched in my mind! I would go back in a heartbeat and I'm sure I would travel again through Inspiration! :) Every person on their staff that I had the chance to meet was very friendly and engaging. I'm sure they were busy and had several things to do, but they were always willing to talk, listen, and help in any way they could. I also loved hearing Andy Stanley speak on the trip. Below is a picture my mom and I were able to get with Andy while we were touring Masada. Thank you!!

I was so impressed with the way Inspiration went about looking after the people in the tour of the Holy Land for In Touch Ministries in September 2014. The tour was so well organized that everything went off without a hitch.

I was so impressed with the way Inspiration went about looking after the people in the tour of the Holy Land for In Touch Ministries in September 2014. The tour was so well organized that everything went off without a hitch. I like to mention the help Stephanie Smith gave to everyone. She was a great help, her Smile said it all. I can only say again Inspiration Cruises and Tours you are the best, well done. Thank you once again. Warren M. New Zealand

The Inspiration Tour in Israel was exceptional. Seeing the places we read about in the Bible, and hearing the tour guide expound on background of history & geography, along with in depth Bible knowledge was more than we expected.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
The Inspiration Tour in Israel was exceptional. Seeing the places we read about in the Bible, and hearing the tour guide expound on background of history & geography, along with in depth Bible knowledge was more than we expected. We enjoyed our time, too, with pastor Ray Johnston, & our Bayside Church. The details of the trip must have been enormous, but we didn't have to concern ourselves with anything. Michael Stewart (& Sandra, too!) of Inspiration Tours were amazing in coordinating, organizing and caring for all aspects of the trip. (We did feel sorry for him, though, for he worked so hard while the rest of us were having the time of our life!) We felt blessed to have them "in charge" of the trip. We highly recommend this trip with Inspiration Tours. 5 stars!

We appreciate all of the the details that had to be worked out to make it such an enriching and fulfilling adventure for all of us.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
        "This is a belated email to thank you and ALL at Inspiration Cruise and Tours who were involved in the planning and execution of the MARVELOUS trip that we experienced last month.
        We appreciate all of the the details that had to be worked out to make it such an enriching and fulfilling adventure for all of us. Special thanks as well to Dave Peterson and Christian who worked so hard during our trip.
        There were many highlights, but, for me, at the top of the list was Reg Grant & his superb first-person interpretations that were so brilliantly done. Other special memories among so many are The Passion Play at Oberammergau and the dear, loving leaders & their spouses from Mt. Hermon who did so much to inspire and unite us all along the way."

I was specially blessed with our tour guide, Schmulick, his knowledge; patience with our group was extraordinary. But most of all, I give thanks to my Lord and Savior for providing all that we needed, protection, safety and much needed sermons by our Pastor Bob Coy.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
        "I just got back from Calvary Chapel’s Tour of Israel. I just want to let you know that your services from beginning to end, where absolutely perfect. You bend over backwards to satisfy all my plane accommodations and your choice of tours in Israel with Sar-El was unique.
        I commend your staff and the staff of Sar-El. I was specially blessed with our tour guide, Schmulick, his knowledge; patience with our group was extraordinary. But most of all, I give thanks to my Lord and Savior for providing all that we needed, protection, safety and much needed sermons by our Pastor Bob Coy. I hope you can share my appreciation to all involved. Hoping to plan my next trip, soon, with you, to God’s land. Meanwhile, I shall pray for your staff and for the peace of Israel."

The hotels and arrangements were just one better than the next... the food - well...now I got to get used to eating at home... so many options and surprises - all fresh and great. Inspiration outdid itself... I would love to even be part of this company is some way... Felt right at home and well taken care of. I would recommend this group to everyone. The experience was just life changing. Thank you to everyone who made this trip - The most Amazing and Awesome trip of my lifetime.

The experience makes the Bible so much more vivid and changes your prayer life...
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Kay always says that the trip is an investment that will change the way you study the Bible. That is absolutely true. The experience makes the Bible so much more vivid and changes your prayer life and even the way you pray for the lost. After I returned...I spent that time trying to absorb everything I had experienced in Israel and Jordan (sights, sounds, people, customs, the land, crops, animals and all of the wonderful Bible teaching by David and Kay).
