Dear Kathy We have just returned from our wonderful trip to Israel which was a celebration not only of Maya’s bat mitzvah but Also a celebration and personal recognition of Israel and its incredible achievements. We shared many joyful moments throughout and unfortunately some sad moments as well. The former included visits to several historical sights and modern day museums whereas the latter included the Recognition of the price Israel has paid for its existence. Our tour guide Doron Matiash was outstanding in every aspect. His was very knowledgeable and was able to impart his deep insights into the history of Israel to three generations of participants. His very pleasant personality and patience made the entire journey one that we will cherish forever. As I told the soldiers that we visited, we share a common past but more importantly we also share a common future. Cheers
Hi Kathy, Now that we are back to the frigid weather in Toronto, we wanted to express to you that the Bar and Bat Mitzvah tour was an experience of a lifetime. Peerless travel provided a well organized tour with an excellent guide. His focus was to interest the children while managing to educate them, the parents and grandparents. There were highlights for us like visiting, Yad Vashem, the historical sights, the Shabbat dinner with an Israeli family, the markets, the army bases and of course the shooting range. We felt so many emotions and loved it all. The most significant aspect for our family on this trip, was the Bar and Bat Mitzvah on Masada. We will never forget the sight of our sixteen year old grandson carrying the Torah down the hill of Masada and into the cable car. The celebration at the hotel was amazing. The food as usual was plentiful and delicious. We were surprised to see flowers on the table and live entertainment with candle lighting. What a celebration and surprise! All of the hotels were first class. We thank you for getting back to us immediately when we had any questions. Our children and grandchildren have not stopped talking about their experiences. The young teenagers have been inspired to go on Birth Right and visit Israel for a summer. This connection is what we had hoped for. Thank you for providing us and our family with a fabulous trip to Israel. Best Regards.
Harry and Iris Kohn.
Just wanted to express our family's appreciation for a terrific trip to Israel that you organized at Peerless for our grandson Harry Sahlit's Bar Mitzvah. It was a wonderful experience for all concerned. The Bar Mitzvah ceremony on Masada was very moving and the whole trip was most enjoyable. We had a great time! It was an unforgettable experience that we shall always remember.
Hi Kathy! We recently booked our children’s Bar and Bat Mitzvah tour if Israel trip with Kathy at Peerless Travel. Wow, it was an incredible experience. Both my wife and I refer to the trip as being “perfect”, and we are generally hard to impress! From the organization and planing, to helping us with customizing add-ons to the main trip, to being available at a moments notice to answer any last minute questions we might have, Kathy and her team were more than helpful. As for the tour itself, it was a life changing event for the family - exactly what we had hoped for. While you can always try to book these things yourself, we found that the stress-free Peerless booked vacation was an unbeatable solution. I would definitely use Peerless again for an Israel trip or any other for that matter. Thanks for the great work!

Hi Kathy, I wanted to take a moment and thank you and Naomi for organizing our trip to Israel this July. My whole family and I unanimously agree that it was the most incredible trip we have ever taken! Israel is something to see. I can clearly see how one falls in love with the country and the people. We were so proud of what our nation could accomplish in such a short time. We experienced so much in 10 days. The archeological dig was amazing, the kids loved the camel and donkey rides, kayaking was thrilling, the moments at the wall were so moving, Masada was breathtaking at Dawn. There is so much to remember. Every day was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip. We laughed, we cried at times, it was quite emotional. Please accept my deepest thanks for helping us organize such an unforgettable trip. It will stay in all of our hearts forever. Warmest Regards,.
We are home and I wanted to let you know we had a fabulous trip. The tours were great and so informative. I fell in love with Israel and of course I was so sad it took me so long to get there. The hotels were also wonderful. Our favourites were the Sheraton in Tel Aviv the Dan Carmel and David Citadel. In all cases the staff rooms and views were wonderful. Petra was a must see and a definite highlight. All around 5 stars for everything from Rooms to food to general experience we loved it! The transfers from one hotel to the next were seamless as were the flights and the assistance at the airport on our departing trip from Tel Aviv to Rome.Excellent job.
Thank you so very much.
Re: Our family trip to Israel, April 17, 2015
I wanted to send you this letter, following our recent family trip to Israel over the March break. We had a wonderful time during our trip. Your travel services provided us with a plan, a guide, and an experience that the six of us will remember for a lifetime. Our trip introduced us to the marvels of Israel, and the historical significance of the entire region. We had the opportunity to visit Christian sites throughout the Holy Land, as well as important Muslim and Jewish areas. Our guide was able to provide us with context for the important geopolitical challenges in the region, and show us sites that helped us to understand the Israel of today.
We very much appreciated your diligent service, and your ability to manage the trip in the most economically efficient way, while still finding us superb accommodations and travel. We would be happy to be a reference to you and your organization in future.
Thank you again for your assistance, and we look forward to working with you again.
Very truly yours,
I wanted to spend a moment and thank you and Peerless for a trip of a lifetime!
We had high hopes for our Bat Mitzvah trip to Israel and the trip exceeded our expectations.
The itinerary was expertly put together and as we travelled the countryside we learned and appreciated different things about Israel.
This all culminated in an inspiring Bat Mitzvah service atop Masada at sunrise.
Our tour guide Shmulik was beyond fantastic and we would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a meaningful
family Bat Mitzvah experience in our Holy Land (with great hotels and food to boot).
Thanks again for everything and we will be sure to tell all our friends!
Pam Frank and the whole Belfer/Frank family
How are you? Happy New Year.
I have been meaning to email you since we returned from our trip in August. I sincerely apologize.
I wanted to tell you what a tremendous experience it was for us. We loved every minute of it.
The food was outstanding, the hotels were great and our guide Smulich was so fantastic. Knowledgeable, thorough and so funny.
This was my fifth trip to Israel and the first time for my children. I felt I was seeing the country again for the first time and this time I appreciated it so much more than when I first toured at the age of 17.
I cannot say enough about how great everything was and I felt safe everywhere we went. I want to thank you for all your help and Peerless for planning a wonderful itinerary.
Hope you're doing great!
We just wanted to sincerely thank you and your colleagues for the trip of a lifetime. It was spiritual, meaningful, educational and just a ton of fun. Everything from the magnificent quality of our guide (Shmulik, about whom not enough can be said) to the first-rate accommodations and meals made this an awesome experience. We also shared the trip with a diverse and warm group of people that we now consider close friends. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better way to celebrate our son's Bar Mitzvah.
Thanks to you and your Team for your superb organizational skills and creativity in allowing us to see our Homeland in the best way possible.

We returned from Israel on August 18th but I haven’t had a chance to contact you because I’ve been scrambling to catch up at work. I just wanted to thank you and Peerless for the wonderful trip that you organized. We all had a fantastic time. The trip was so well organized and full of fantastic experiences – some of which we expected, others which were very surprising. The Rabbi was great and the ceremony was beautiful.
Special mention needs to go to our guide, who was phenomenal. Aharon was knowledgeable and funny. He truly made the trip memorable. I’d like to write a thank you to him as well. I was wondering if you had an email address for him or if you’d be able to forward a letter from me.
Sharon Ronel and family
Thank you again for encouraging us to go on the trip. Our son Michael did indeed read from Exodus during the Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah cermony, which was most memorable, as was the entire trip.
I wanted to underline to you that our guide Neil Eisenstadt was excellent (very informative, knowledgeable and friendly), and we thank you for this.
I would like to take this opportunity (belated as it is) to thank you, Ehud, Ahron, Shimon, and the rest of the group at Peerless for making my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah Israel tour an unforgettable experience. To take a group of 7 unfamiliar families, 38 people, ranging in age from six to eighty-something, mix in jet lag of different degrees (people from Montreal, Toronto, Western Canada, and Australia!), add in a hectic schedule, and unbelievable heat, and transform them to a cohesive group, touring a country with thousands of years of history, is an incredible undertaking that Ahron, and Shimon performed with the illusion of it being an effortless task (they even seemed to enjoy themselves).
The tours were all well organized, and Ahron had a wonderful knowledge of the countryside and the rich history involved, which he shared with us in an unobtrusive, friendly manner, welcoming all questions along the way. He kept us all on schedule without becoming intrusive to our enjoyment of the trip. He seemed to be able to instantly adapt to the varied needs of the group, yet keep everyone organized so not a beat was missed.
From the initial planning stages, right through the execution was flawless. Hotel check-ins were performed in advance to us arriving at the hotels. Numerous special requests from all the families were always accommodated without question or stress. In fact, no request was ever seen as a problem, and everything was done to ensure a great time was had by all.
Just wanted to send a quick note to say that we had a great time touring Israel. Even though the itinerary was aggressive, and we would have liked to spend more time in places like Haifa and Tiberias, we realize that we can`t expect to see everything, in such a short time.
Danny the guide, was personable and knowledgeable. Overall, a terrific trip.
Thank you to Peerless, Yahaloma and all the Families who helped make this experience so wonderful!!! I have a digital mountain of video and photo files to help keep these memories close to my heart and am looking forward to sharing and in turn seeing all of your precious images. I believe that Shea Faigan was interested in hosting a file sharing site for this purpose and will leave that to him (He won the privilege in a scrabble game). Just a few pictures with this email, I will try to send a short video clip in a separate email.
EXCELLENT TRIP EXCELLENT TRIP
Well, we are back and recovered from jet lag. I thought I would take a few minutes to give you some feedback on the trip.
First of all, we had a magnificent time. The family rated it a '10 out of 10', Zahavah loved her Bat Mitzvah and we all loved Israel and the tour. I want to raise some specific areas, mostly of praise, and pass on a few ideas.
1. You. You were terrific, responding quickly and efficiently, with good cheer and the right information. Thank you.
2. Our guide (Moshe) and driver (Nissan). Moshe was simply excellent. A very bright man with a wealth of knowledge and a fine narrative style, he was a pleasure, and organized things beautifully. Nissan was of good cheer and, not incidentally, one fine driver (which is useful on twisty, narrow roads).
3. The Ceremony. Was wonderful and moving. The Rabbi was a delight, striking the right balance that ensured we had the feeling of having a proper service and that each child felt special, while also capturing the spirit of adventure and fun. The party was lovely and the dinner at Decks a nice surprise. Our Bat Mitzvah felt very special.
That's all for now. If I think of more i will write again. Mostly I want to thank you for organizing such a wonderful trip for us, and for all your personal attention to us.
