“The tour was fantastic! I was very impressed with the level of organization from the very start to the very finish. I have led American college student groups on over thirty educational tours to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East and I thought your company was first rate, and Jordan was a most memorable experience. Thanks again and best wishes to you! – Tim, USA”
