I had to share what a great experience I had today dealing with Inspiration Tours and UpWords Ministry. I had a concern about our upcoming trip that was handled quickly, expertly, and with care and concern by everyone involved. Our most sincere thanks to Shellie and Kelly at Inspiration, and to Cheryl at UpWords. We were very blessed by each of you today. Thank you! May God continue to bless each of you, as you have been a blessing to us.

Gayle and I will never forget the awesome experiences of this tour. In addition to the hospitality of Inspiration and Turning Point staffs, our tour was made so much more enjoyable and educational by being on Bus #2 with Amit as our tour guide. His wealth of knowledge of the Holy Land and the Jewish people was just incredible.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for making it possible for Gordon, Kimberly, Gayle and I to make our first trip to The Holy Land. The Inspiration Staff per usual were the greatest! I don't know how you do it with some of the very difficult logistics but you always come through. Gayle and I will never forget the awesome experiences of this tour. In addition to the hospitality of Inspiration and Turning Point staffs, our tour was made so much more enjoyable and educational by being on Bus #2 with Amit as our tour guide.

Thanks again for everything.

I loved everything about this trip and the life changing experience that is so hard to explain. I think one of the things that changed me was being baptized in the Jordan by Tobin. Whenever I read scripture of John baptizing Jesus, I think "wow" I was baptized there too. Changes the heart.

TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
We want to say how greatly blessed we were by the tour to Israel with Max Lucado. Thank you for all the work you all did at Inspiration Cruises & Tours to make the trip such a memorable time for us. We were constantly amazed how smoothly the organization of the tour went as there was never crowding at the sites or a “hick up” with the arrangements. Thank you for all the fun, meals and exciting things we were able to see. During the trip Max Lucado gave us some amazing teaching that helped to bring the bible alive. I said to Max that I would love to hear the teachings again and again and you made them available to us. We were so blessed by you all at Inspiration Cruises and have not stopped sharing our experience and letting people know about you. We would love to travel with you again. Please keep us on your mailing list and use us for a reference when you need a satisfied traveller. We continue to be amazed how smooth everything went and how much we were able to see in such a short time as well as the value for money of the trip.

I am absolutely unable to articulate my deep appreciation for the extra-ordinary care and thoughtful attention to every detail that your staff provided to accommodate every need on the recent trip to HIS Land.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
I am absolutely unable to articulate my deep appreciation for the extra-ordinary care and thoughtful attention to every detail that your staff provided to accommodate every need on the recent trip to HIS Land. It was over and above anything I could have thought to ask! For me – and I believe each person on the tour – it was an incredible spiritual journey of a lifetime.

We were loved on extravagantly.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
The Israel tour is more than they say it will be. We were loved on extravagantly. We learned so much and have been blessed abundantly. The teaching is so rich & life transforming! You need to go on this tour, it is life transforming.

This was our first trip to Israel and we booked the trip just six weeks before. So you can imagine that we were a little nervous about such a huge endeavor, but from beginning to end, it was evident that every detail had been thought out and planned. Our bus tour guide was excellent, we learned a lot from him. The sites were amazing and so well planned that we never had a crowd around us, even though we had eleven buses on this tour, for a count of about 500 people. We went on our own, didn't know anybody, but soon found out that through Christ, we are all family. We would seat with different people at different meals and shared the glory of all that we were experiencing.

We would seat with different people at different meals and shared the glory of all that we were experiencing. My husband and I never stopped praising God for causing us to book this tour with such an amazing and professional company as Inspiration Cruises and Tours, honestly. We had friends that had gone to Israel two years before and didn't come back with too many good memories because of the lack of planning, so we so wanted to have a good experience, and we did! The memories we brought back will never diminish, they are implanted in our hearts. We are an older couple so we know full well what a well planned itinerary is and we can recognize the hand of God when we see it. Suffice it to say, that our hearts are fully satisfied with all of it. By the way, the food was excellent, such an array of choices. Inspiration Cruises and Tours actually has several of their personnel at the tour site and they are there to help you, more friendly and helpful people you could not find. As a matter of fact, I asked for information after I came back from the tour, and even that they provided. Where do you find that kind of interest and service? If I could rate with five stars, I would rate them with ten!

The Israel trip was above and beyond what I expected. I didn't realize how much spiritual feeding I would receive.

The sorts of problems we've had in the past with other tour organizers don't happen with Inspiration. Things don't fall through the cracks, plans are complete down to the smallest details, people are available to deal with the little issues like missing luggage and lost passports. The spiritual element is always foremost.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Once again Inspiration Tours and Dave Peterson provided an excellent travel experience for our group. The sorts of problems we've had in the past with other tour organizers don't happen with Inspiration. Things don't fall through the cracks, plans are complete down to the smallest details, people are available to deal with the little issues like missing luggage and lost passports. The spiritual element is always foremost. The guides are generally the best, and truly enhance the travel experience for pilgrim travelers such as ours. Airport connections, so critical to a good experience, are handled with aplomb. Someone conversant with the airport and its language(s) is on hand to meet and guide the travelers, and to see them to the airport and on to their plane without a hitch on the way home. People don't miss connecting flights because sufficient margins are calculated. Hotels and food are excellent without exception. We will continue to work with Inspiration Tours for as long as we have people who want to travel with us. We've already used them for nearly ten years and as many tours. They are the best we've ever found!
