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.

The Cruise was absolutely a highlight for my year!
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
The Cruise was absolutely a highlight for my year! I usually go to nations and speak to churches and crusades, etc. but the street evangelism, the one on one we did in Jamaica, ignited a FIRE in me…

An unfortunate accident to my mother's ankle prevented us from completing the trip. What we did experience will last a lifetime.
TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WITH INSPIRATION:
Turning Point Ministries encouraged us to visit the Holy Land in May 2007. An unfortunate accident to my mother's ankle prevented us from completing the trip. What we did experience will last a lifetime. We are saddened that we were unable to share the remainder of the trip with the rest of you. Our short time together was enjoyable. I would very much like to complete the trip at sometime in the future. My mother is recuperating at home and is expected to begin therapy from her surgery in late June. The Turning Point staff and that of Inspiration Cruises & Tours is top notch, especially Dave Peterson, who went above and beyond the call of duty. I plan to return to Israel some time in the future if circumstances are right. Hopefully you may consider a return trip with Turning Point. Thank you for your prayers for my mother and me in our time of need. May God continue to bless you and your family and your staff.

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

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. His wealth of knowledge of the Holy Land and the Jewish people was just incredible. All that and a wonderful sense of humor! We hope when we go again, we find Amit will be our guide! Thanks again for everything.

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!
