    We absolutely loved having Haya as our guide in Israel. She made our trip not onlyinformative, but safe and fun! This trip was an amazing gift from my brother to my mom for her 69th birthday and the fulfillment of a lifelong dream for her to see Jerusalem and the holy sites. Haya worked very hard to make as many special arrangements and accommodations for my mom as she is disabled and needed special attention to be able to see all the sites she wanted to see at a pace she could enjoy. Every day of our tour she had a fun twist of music, handouts and visuals for us to make mental connections. She made certain as we went about our tour that we were not bothered by any vendors or people who wanted to stop and interrupt our precious time. I would highly recommend her tour! I still absolutely LOVE the restaurant she took us to in Jerusalem, so much that we went back a second time! Well done Haya!!
