    We were a couple toured 2 days with Shalom wiser. Had a nice car to take us around. Being an elderly person found him a person with Temper and a bit egoistic (you say yes he  will says no).

    In August of 2014 Shalom Wiser provided 4 of us (2 couples) 14 days of touring Israel via his large comfortable car. We did have a choice of car or mini van. Both air conditioned.  All 4 of us had never been to Israel before.  I (we) all agree that by the time we left for home we really saw and experienced Israel from North to South and East to West and points between!!  What a tour! Shalom mapped out each day subject to our approval prior to leaving the United States. Of course the tour was created for our number of days on land. Shalom also took my sister and brother-in-law and another couple for somewhat less than that length of time back in 2008.  Since then my nephew, wife and son went to Israel in 2016 for about 9-10 days.  Our best friends here at home also went two months prior to us with their entire family (I believe 10-11 including children) for about 12 days.  The list goes on and on. Obviously the quality, consideration, friendliness, knowledge and all around ease of there for us make Shalom so great and worth our recommendations to others going.  By the way although Shalon could not completely arrange and go with us we toured Petra in Jordan.  Shalom did contact his associate and the Petra day excursion went as easy as touring Israel. Soup to nuts all was handled.
