There are no words to describe that first glimpse of Jerusalem. I will carry it always with me in my heart.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
We booked this trip expecting it to be wonderful, but it was so much more than that. First of all, every detail was meticulously worked out. The trip was flawless. Our guides were among the best in Israel as were the bus drivers. (And they managed to do all of this while President Trump was in Jerusalem staying only a block or two away from us!) There are no words to describe that first glimpse of Jerusalem. I will carry it always with me in my heart. Kay's and David's teachings were timely, spiritually challenging, and Biblically related to the sites we were visiting. Just when we thought things couldn't possibly get better, the next day would be equally amazing! We have already paid our deposit to return in 2018. Also, I should add that the accommodations at Gai Beach in Tiberias as well as the Inbal in Jerusalem were excellent. The food was excellent. Kay and David have done this so many times that they know what to do, where to go, and what to avoid. Also, a word of praise is due Inspiration Tours for their ability to make everything flow seamlessly and provide an excellent tour to their patrons. Many friends asked if we felt safe while we were in Israel. The answer is that we felt totally safe. God blessed us beyond our wildest imaginations with this tour, so much so that we can hardly wait to do it again! One bit of advice if you plan to go: take good walking shoes and more capris for ladies than shorts. When visiting the holy sites you need capris and shirts with at least short sleeves (or a sweater, shrug, etc., to wear over sleeveless items). It's also nice to have a couple of dresses, skirts, etc., to dress up a little for dinner. Just a helpful packing tip....

"It was week of fellowship with new people from around the world."
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
We recently went on the cruise with Dr. Stanley and his son, Andy. It was week of fellowship with new people from around the world. The ministry was outstanding and the Christian music was unlike anything we had experienced. The staff of Inspiration took good care of us throughout the week and made sure any questions or requests were promptly addressed. ...A wonderful week in our "Walk of Faith" that will be remembered for a lifetime.

It makes the Bible come alive, and it is much easier to picture and understand what the Bible is saying.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Going on the Prayer and Vision Tour of the Holy Land with Joel Rosenberg was our “trip of a lifetime”; we had wanted to go to Israel for years. It makes the Bible come alive, and it is much easier to picture and understand what the Bible is saying. As an example I have included a picture of us on the Mount of Olives in the Garden of Gethsemane with the Eastern Gate of the Temple Mount framed in the background between us. This is one of our favorite pictures. We strongly encourage our friends to consider Inspiration Cruises if they are planning a trip to Israel. The food, transportation, and lodging were great, and we didn't worry about any entrance fees, or tipping; the only thing we worried about was making sure we were on the bus by 7:30 AM, ready to be blessed with another day of touring the land of the Bible.

"Music out of this world. It was a life changing week for the 3 of us. Inspirational and heart warming."
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
I used to own my own Travel Agency and specialized in group cruises. I also escorted and traveled with my groups so am well aware of how difficult it is to prepare and organize EVERYTHING for your guests. Extremely impressed with EVERYTHING. I am on Oxygen and am 76 years old so walked with a walker and carried Oxygen. I needed lots of help and the Inspiration staff were IMPECCABLE. Gaither's activities were excellent. Music out of this world. It was a life changing week for the 3 of us. Inspirational and heart warming. Music divine and out of this world. BEST trip EVER. I would recommend it to everyone. Thanks for such a safe, uplifting, magical, spiritual week.

Saw so much of God's wonders and felt his presence throughout the preaching of Charles and Andy Stanley

No longer will I read biblical accounts without recalling my own footsteps while visiting the Holy Land...
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Perspective! That’s what changed when my wife and I traveled to Israel. Looking at a map vs. actually visiting biblical sights just won’t compare. Seeing the locations firsthand where the Bible describes the events that have changed recorded history is life changing. No longer will I read biblical accounts without recalling my own footsteps while visiting the Holy Land and knowing the exact terrain and proximity to other landmarks allowing me to better understand the Word of God that much clearer. Perspective…mine has changed.

Now that we know what we’ve been missing, it will be hard to consider any cruise opportunities without a spiritual emphasis.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
My husband and I deemed this our “Best Vacation Ever.” The Gospel Music Celebration Cruise to the Caribbean was like stepping on the shores of heaven for a week! Thank you so much for the opportunity to board early and receive a “sneak preview” of the entertainers we were about to enjoy that week. What a blessing! It was great to also meet some of the Inspiration Crew who traveled with us and made the event flow so smoothly. This was cruise #7 for Roger and me, but the first coordinated by Inspiration. Now that we know what we’ve been missing, it will be hard to consider any cruise opportunities without a spiritual emphasis. And we are busy promoting your next offerings of the same type of cruise to all our friends!

"The Gaither entertainment during the cruise exceeded expectations as well. Our last cruise with them was 3 years ago and they continue to improve upon an already perfect presentation."
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
The Gaither Homecoming Cruise was top-notch from beginning to end. Inspiration Cruises personnel engaged with us via internet, telephone and mail during the entire sign up process. We were treated with the utmost respect and dignity as they assigned us exactly the accommodations we requested. We were sent a special package, picked up at the hotel, ushered through the arrival process, led to our stateroom, reunited with our luggage and treated with extraordinary care throughout our stay on the ship. The special treatment we received at the Neptune Lounge and its superb staff was outstanding in everyway. Every detail of each of the shore excursions we selected were handled in detail and expertly planned by the staff. The Gold Mine Tour was a particular treat. The information and demonstrations of the mining process exceeded all expectations. Of course, the Gaither entertainment during the cruise exceeded expectations as well. Our last cruise with them was 3 years ago and they continue to improve upon an already perfect presentation. We were absolutely astonished at the performances and how they truly glorified our God, Jesus Christ. The exit from the cruise was every bit as perfect as the arrival. Instructions from the ship, stateroom and Neptune Lounge staff was perfect and got us to the airport at least 3 hours ahead of our planned flight. We were very well pleased!!! Can't wait for the next Inspiration Cruise!!
