El Salvador
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.

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.

Inspiration does everything first class. The travel arrangements, preparation info for tour, arrival, tour guides, buses & bus drivers, hotel accommodations, teaching ~ absolutely everything was perfect!
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
We wanted to drop a note and tell you once again what a wonderful experience we had on our recent trip to Israel. We traveled with Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale; this was our second trip to the Holy Land with them. Our experience 2 years ago was wonderful, but we must confess, this was even more meaningful! This truly was a "pilgrimage" for us! Inspiration does everything first class. The travel arrangements, preparation info for tour, arrival, tour guides, buses & bus drivers, hotel accommodations, teaching ~ absolutely everything was perfect! A very big difference this year was the use of "whispers"...excellent addition! No matter where you were in the group, every word was heard! We were totally connected with our tour guide at all times and through his voice! We remain amazed at the knowledge level of the guides you use; knowledge of the land itself and its history, as well as remarkable knowledge of the Bible! We have had the opportunity to be with two different guides and each gave us personal knowledge and a different perspective. We hope to return again! Thank you, Dave, and the Inspiration team for all you did in making this journey so special for us! Truly a blessing beyond words!

It wasn’t just a tour, it wasn’t a vacation, it was an experience where Jesus loved me so much [that] He wanted to show me where He was born and where He grew up and where He taught and where His friends were and where miracles happened and I got to see all of that and He kept on showing me all these things. I was able to delight in His life in a very intimate way.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
[My husband and I] both wanted to pursue God more than just a nominal Christian life; we wanted more. I knew that I wanted to go to Israel and had been invited by different parties but I was waiting for just the right one and it came along when I decided to go to Philadelphia to see Joel Rosenberg. We had planned [to see Israel] for the next year—bought tickets for myself, my husband Jeff and my daughter Savannah 11 years old—and we went on a trip of a lifetime. It wasn’t just a tour, it wasn’t a vacation, it was an experience where Jesus loved me so much [that] He wanted to show me where He was born and where He grew up and where He taught and where His friends were and where miracles happened and I got to see all of that and He kept on showing me all these things. I was able to delight in His life in a very intimate way. I know there are many vacations people can go on, many places they can visit. Go to Europe and see history there [or] go to Hawaii and go surf—but ultimately if you’re a follower of Jesus Christ and you have the opportunity and the Lord calls you to it to see His intimate life and how He grew up and how He died for you and where He died for you and where He rose for you and where He’s going to come back again for you, [then] I hugely recommend this opportunity. And I hope to see you there because I will return.

I’ve been exposed to cultures and music that I didn’t know existed in the body of Christ.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
The experience was wonderful and it was without a doubt the most diverse group of Christians I’ve ever seen. I’ve been exposed to cultures and music that I didn’t know existed in the body of Christ.

I admire your patience and ability to answer the same question 15 times. Summed up.......you are great at what you do.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
I suppose there is an outside chance that you have already forgotten those you have most recently traveled with but even if that is the case with me I still want to let you know that I think you do your job well. You keep the groups organized and make it look like your job is effortless tho it is a talent to make it appear as such when it is quite the contrary. I admire your patience and ability to answer the same question 15 times. Summed up.......you are great at what you do.

The people you brought on for entertainment were fantastic, a very spiritual experience.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Your planning of the entertainment on this cruise was excellent. The people you brought on for entertainment were fantastic, a very spiritual experience. We totally enjoyed all of them and they were all so friendly when we found them off stage. I was surprised that Dr. Stanley was able to be out and about so much greeting and talking with people, it would have worn me out. The excursions we took at each port were all great except for one but the others were so fantastic and there always as to be "one".
