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.

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!

I’ve never been farther than the states or central America by myself, so Israel was like a big thing for me and [Inspiration] made it really comfortable and it was really easy to get to.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
[Inspiration] managed the whole thing and organized the whole trip was really great because from day one they were really professional and really organized. I received my package like a week after I purchased it. I’ve never been farther than the states or central America by myself, so Israel was like a big thing for me and they made it really comfortable and it was really easy to get to. The hotels were really organized, everything was really great, the tour buses were awesome and the guides. It was a really good experience. Some of the things they did to make it comfortable was explaining every detail, like the instructions on the package were awesome. They also gave us a book to read before going to Israel so they prepared us for the things that we should expect, what to pack, what would be the things that we would be encountering along the way so that was something that was really a big benefit. I made a lot of great friends in Israel that believe the same thing and when we got back and showed them all the pictures and all the places we went and how organized it was and how professional they were they were actually excited for next year. In a way they make you feel like you are in a little bubble. You’re part of a class and you feel comfortable. They actually did a good job making my nametags and also different tags for your bags, so they kept everything really organized with the lists. For me personally what made this trip so special was that it was unplanned—it was spontaneous. I think a lot of people sometimes like to plan everything in their life and live by a schedule or just live by expectations, but this was something that just came up…and I just kinda was brave enough to buy the ticket with the money I had saved. Not knowing where I was going, who I was going with, I wasn’t part of a church or anything—I actually just got myself out there. Just walking where Jesus walked is awesome. It was a great experience that you don’t get to enjoy every day.
