We have traveled with other tour companies, but I would rate your company at the top...thank you all for a wonderful tour.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
My wife and I didn't realize, at the time we signed up for the "Land of Jesus-Steps of Paul" tour, there would be nearly 300 people. If we had known this, we probably would not have signed up. We want you to know, not going for that reason, would have been our loss. Your staff knows how to run a tour! The independent buses called "bus families" made the touring seem like we were only traveling with the same 36 people most of the time. Many times we were the only group at any one point of interest. Sure, the other bus groups were nearby, but all 300 were not trying to see the same tomb or altar at the same time. By the third day, we were very impressed by your company's organizing skills. It was apparent that traveling in a large group actually had some advantages in terms of resources available to the large group. We have traveled with other tour companies, but I would rate your company at the top. Your management is blessed to have Dave, Charlie and Kelly. You three are an awesome team. I retired with 284 people under me and I recognize dedicated employees wherever I go. Thank you all for a wonderful tour.

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!

From the very beginning of our trip Inspiration Cruises exceeded all our expectations on a daily basis.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
My husband and I went on this tour in 2014. I remember scouring the internet for any information I could get my hands on about traveling not only out of the country, but Israel? My husband booked this trip as a surprise for me and boy, was I surprised! Never had I ever wanted to travel to Israel but I smiled graciously and packed every known remedy I could think of, just in case. Turns out there were around 850 people on this tour with us. We flew out of New York, can't remember what airplane it was but it was a massive jumbo jet. As we sat in the belly of this airplane surrounded by our fellow travelers, strangers, the only people we knew was each other. When we arrived in Tel Aviv we were met by representatives from Inspiration Cruises who shuttled us by bus to our hotel and a late night supper. From the very beginning of our trip Inspiration Cruises exceeded all our expectations on a daily basis. We did a lot of walking every day but I still managed to gain 5 pounds while we were there. The food was great and abundant. We chose the 3 star hotel instead of 4 or 5 stars. Our rooms were clean and neat. The only problem we had on this trip was electrical outlets in our hotel rooms. Each time we could only get our adaptors to work in one of the outlets so we could not charge our phone and use the hair dryer at the same time. The people we got to know best were the 48 we traveled with on bus 8 every day. Our tour guide, Jeremy was the BEST!! Not only did he know the history, he is a wonderful Christian man who read the Word, prayed and sang with us at many of the sites. On the airplane on the way home we were sitting next to the same people we sat with on the way over but they were no longer strangers, they were our good friends from bus 8!! Great job Jerry!

There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think about our wonderful cruise!
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
There isn't a day that goes by that we don't think about our wonderful cruise! Jeremy Bloom's Wish of a Lifetime worked with your firm to arrange our trip with Gaither Homecoming. We really want to thank the person or persons responsible for arranging our trip. We had a great time and we certainly enjoyed the concerts and our ocean view cabin. Neven gained 8 pounds so the food must have been great too! Thank you for a wonderful cruise!

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.

Just seeing the souls that came to Christ made the trip well worth the sacrifice.
