We just got back from an amazing trip to Israel and Jordan orchestrated by Jonathan at Cicerone Travel. First, the hotel accommodations were all exceptional for the location- in Jerusalem the location of the hotel was perfect- we could walk to the old city, restaurants, and the market and the room was nice and breakfast was good. In Nazareth the hotel was very nice and included a good restaurant. The hotel in Petra was right outside the visitor gate, and the room was lovely and then we stayed in a Bedouin camp for a night which added a day of rustic adventure! The boutique hotel in Tel Aviv, across from the beach, was the perfect way to end the trip! Our tour guides were all very well educated and professionals that were adapt at moving through the cities and sights. We learned so much about Israel in a short amount of time through our time and conversations with each of them. They were also great at making restaurant reservations and recommendations for shopping! Every detail was considered for us in advance including drivers to airports and other locations. The attention and care that went into planning all this on the front end was evident in the perfect selection of accommodations, touring sites and tour guides!
