The trip to Israel was fantastic, memorable and filled me with so much pride for my people. Shlomo the tour guide was such an enthusiastic and knowledgeable leader. Every detail was so carefully attended to. There was nothing more I COULD HAVE ASKED FOR, AND THIS WAS MY FOURTH TRIP. Bravo for running an incredible company!

We had a terrific trip. Everything worked out great, and I had a bunch of very happy people. And Julie was an amazing tour guide. She is great with both adults and kids…

Our trip to Eastern Europe with Professor Berk may well be the most outstanding and memorable travel that we have ever experienced. Your office handled our numerous questions promptly and fully. All arrangements went perfectly and made a rigorous trip function smoothly.Read More

Where does one start when talking about Professor Berk? He is brilliant! His lectures are understandable! And most of all he brings history to life. It is unimaginable to me that anyone would go to Eastern Europe any way other than with Professor Berk and Ayelet. Thank you for making this trip available to us.”

The mission to Cuba was a truly amazing experience! We loved being able to help the Cuban Jewish communities and I feel we need to continue these gifts.

What. A. Trip. My congregants were blown away by Ayelet’s command of the details and how well you maneuvered 330 moving pieces around an entire country! And they have pledged to follow Luis anywhere, any time. We all adored him and felt so fortunate to have him looking out for us every day. You guys are great at what you do, and I so appreciate you.

Thank you so much for helping make this trip such a memorable one. There were so many aspects that I loved: learning from Professor Berk and Prof. Papo, hearing the Cantors sing at their programs and spontaneously at other places on the tour, learning about present day Spain from the speakers in Barcelona and Seville, attending Shabbat Services, and being so well taken care by the people from Ayelet. Everything ran so smoothly, including getting our luggage to the right places in a timely fashion. I have never been on a tour before but Ayelet did such a superb job. In the future when I plan to travel I will look to Ayelet to see where your company is traveling in the world.

Spain

Jewish History in Spain is filled with contradictions. There is tragedy here, but there are also traces of former glory during the 1,000 years before the inquisition when large scale Jewish communities prospered for long periods. With the Spanish government opening the door to citizenship for Jews with Spanish roots, and the opening of new centers of Jewish culture, there has never been a better time to visit Spain. Add a visit to nearby Portugal to enhance your visit to the Iberian Peninsula. Together let’s explore all that Spanish, Ladino and Sephardic cultures have to offer – contact us to start planning your private Congregational, University or Family tour to Spain today!

Well, we are gathered in the gate area, about to board the flight home following what was arguably one of the best congregational trips I have been on.

To a person, participants are so happy to have been a part of this journey. I believe with utmost confidence that each would readily recommend Ayelet to future travelers.
