What an awesome experience.

This is our second visit to the Holy Land with EHLT and all I can say is - "I want to be back there again!!"

Yaron, Uri and the team are brilliant guys and are a real blessing and a wealth of information. We were taken from the Lebanon / Syrian border in the North all the way down to Eilat in the South over two weeks and to say we enjoyed our tour would be an understatement.

Highly Recommended - and we will be back next year unless God moves the mountains before then!!
