    May 5 2018 departure I have been searching for an affordable tour company for Israel and came across with Troy tours. Can’t beat the price including airfare plus buffet breakfast and dinner. We had a very wonderful moving experience in Israel. Shai our tour guide is commendable with his wealth of knowledge, sense of humor and great attitude. Wahid was an excellent driver as well. Can and and rest of the Troy tour staff were efficient and took care of our well being while we were away from the US. I am grateful for that! I already recommended Troy tours to everybody that I know. Can’t complain with the price with a 5 star experience!! I will definitely come back!

    Just got back from Israel and I must say this was a fantastic tour for the price! 3rd time there, and Troy Tours did a fine job. Shai was the best guide we have ever had anywhere. We had a diverse group of 36 strangers that meshed very well and all became friends. Shai did a great job showing us the sites with commentaries from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim perspectives. The hotels were very good keeping in mind it is not the US (a 2 star here is a 4 star there) but I was very happy with the hotels, meals, etc. Multi-day tours are bound to have hicups but we had none, everything went off as planned. Considering this was about half the cost of other tours I looked at, this was an extremely good value for the money. Not to set anyones expectation skyhigh, but I would do this again in a heartbeat. And Austrian knows how to treat its passengers. It was a long journey, to a middle eastern country, but it was a great trip and I would do it a thousand times over again! Take this trip!

    Here are my remarks about the May 5th trip to Israel. We enjoyed it but was a little strenuous at times. We would go from 8am to 6pm each day. There were very large crowds everywhere we went. Our guide, Shai, was excellent and knowledgeable. It was hot and would suggest to people who take your tour to take it a month earlier. All hotel accommodations were excellent and our food was OK. Thank you for all your help in accommodating us for this trip. Sincerely, - DH

    Our visit to Israel was nothing short of a powerful and moving life experience. Everyday was packed with incredible sites and history lessons. Our tour guide, Ofra, was an encyclopedia of biblical and historical knowledge. She has been doing this a long time and it showed in how organized and fun she made the trip. Wahid the tour bus driver was also excellent. We saw all of the major biblical sites from northern Israel down to Jerusalem. In Jerusalem we retraced the steps of Jesus in his last 4 days of life starting from the Mt. of Olives and Gethsemane garden. Our last day was at Masada and the Dead Sea. Early in the trip at Canaan Ofra organized a renewing of marriage vows for some of us in the church where Jesus turned the water into wine. Unforgettable! We ate traditional food and there was always plenty. The accommodations were fine for the price, however, I do recommend bringing your own hair dryer even if the hotel says they have they were not supplied. This is an experience of a lifetime and Troy Tours provided an excellent package and an unbeatable price!

    Feb-17-24th tour. Wonderful tour overall. Our tour guide Ofra was absolutely the "best". I am a history buff and her wealth of knowledge is amazing. With her "zebra umbrella" she was always in sight and kept us together. We learned so many new and interesting facts. Even the drive was full of tid bits of information that added so much to an exciting fun filled tour. Wahid is an excellent driver he got us thru those winding roads and traffic with ease and comfort. New and lasting friendships were forged. Great experience I recommend this. I would do it again.

    The Most Wallet-friendly Escorted Tour to Israel As our 8 Days/6 Nights Classic Israel Tour with Troy Tours progressed, there was no doubt in my mind that my family snatched the best priced tour in Israel from the United States. The whole package seemed too good to be true, but I had traveled with Troy Tours before, so I knew they would deliver. They delivered excellently. Our party of 3 arrived a day late due to a snow storm in the East Coast. A Troy Tour representative picked us up at the airport and drove 2 hours to bring us to our tour group who already had a full day of sightseeing. Our tour guide, Ofra, was waiting for us outside our kibbutz cottage at 9 o’clock at night. She had packed dinner waiting for us. I knew then that despite of a rocky start, we were going to have a great time in Israel. We had a nice tour group of 31 people coming from Canada, California, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington. Our tour guide, Ofra, is a fountain of knowledge, and our driver, Wahid, is very skillful. I loved that both daily breakfast and dinner were included in the tour package. It was fun to taste classic dishes popular in Israel. I especially loved the food in Degania Bet, the kibbutz we stayed at. They were my favorite, especially the shakshouka. I will try to recreate the dish in my kitchen! The food in Jerusalem Gold Hotel were not bad either. They were both kosher and tasty. The places we visited filled me with awe and joy. We went to the various religious places I wanted to visit, and more. Going to Masada is a must. The World Heritage Site is literally and metaphorically, breathtaking. Visiting Israel has been on my bucket list for a long time, and I was ecstatic to fulfill it. I am very satisfied I accomplished this with Troy Tours. Those planning to take an escorted tour in Israel may want to consider Troy Tours. They offer the most wallet-friendly package available. I am confident you will enjoy it as much as my tour group did. Donna A

    REVIEW for Classic ISRAEL Feb 17 - 24 , 2018 8 days/ 6 night. Rating 5 star Recently back from the visit to Israel. We had a nice Tour group to Israel (only 31 people)! Can't beat the price: Int'l airfare, Hotel, Breakfast&Dinner daily, all sightseeing fare entrance. We had 14 people from Toronto, Canada and had an amazing experience. Thanks to our tour Leader OFRA & driver WAHID that made our trip fantastic. The hotels were very good (especially the Kibbutz hotel that we stayed at, experiencing the community culture). I would recommend TROY TOUR to anyone who wants to know more about Israel,a fascinating country.

    AS REVISED, Please use this. Thanks! Our vacation, (January 20-27, 2018) c/o the very knowledgeable, au fait Tour Guide: “OFRA” - and our accommodating Driver: “WAHID” was a fun-filled, historical, first hand learning expedition for our group – 33 in all, as we sojourned as a family, North to South the countryside of Israel! … Superior hotels, food, services, etc... I have rated the excellent experience a whooping score of 5, although, I got lost on the very first day (coz, I followed the wrong tour group – my bad !)... My congratulations to TroyTours.com for a job well done and will definitely recommend same to friends and family.

    Israel Unbelievable what we were able to see on this short but action packed tour! Our tour guide, Ofra, is the Google of Israel. Our group was unable to stump her with all of our historic and cultural questions. The route was perfectly planned and our travels around this amazing country was seamless. We learned so much about this country and this culture. We typically travel on our own by car but we would have missed so much if not on this tour. Made lots of friends and while some of the hotels were not what you would book yourself, they were clean and comfortable.

    The tour was awesome. We took the same tour a year ago and it has been improved. The first hotel was much better as was the kibbutz. Enjoyed the talk about the kibbutz. The place we went to for the Dead Sea was also much better. Daphne was fantastic, very knowledgeable and helpful to everyone in the group. She made sure everyone had a good time and took us to some extra places people wanted to see like the Jordan River and Jerico. Our time in Turkey was wonderful as well. We enjoyed our tour guide Kerem who also was very knowledgeable. The family who own Hotellino were very helpful in telling us how to get around on our free day and helped us experience a Turkish bath. I have been to Turkey any times but it my friend Rita's first time and she fell in love with the country and people. I felt sad that more people on the tour didn't join us in Istanbul. We hope to bring our children next year. Thank you for another wonderful toue!

At first we were skeptical about how such an Israel tour with great itinerary could be so affordable. But having gone through the trip, accomodations, etc. it's definitely a great deal. Thank you Troy Tours for an amazing Israel experience. Turkish Airlines is the best airlines we've experienced so far since we've traveled with different airlines for 13 years now. We are definitely coming back with family and friends - next year in Jerusalem!

    Israel tour experience with Troy Tours Recently, we took a trip with Troy Tours to Israel (8 Day Escorted Tour of Israel) this was our first time booking with this tour operator and I was a bit skeptical because of the low rates. However, the trip was amazing. Upon arrival in Tel Aviv, we were greeted by the Troy Tours representative, David, and directed to our busl. From the first moment of arrival, Troy Tours took care of us. All flights, accommodations, daily guided sightseeing tours were meticulously planned and on-time. We were impressed with the nice hotels chosen and the included meals were exceptional. We had a great time with the tour-guide. He was knowledgeable about all sites visited in Tiberias, Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Jerusalem, Bethlehem etc. and he enhanced our overall experience. This was a NO STRESS, NO HASSLE experience and everything about this trip was much better than expected. Needless to say, we're looking forward to book with Troy Tours again for our next trip. I highly recommend booking with Troy Tours

    Recently returned from our visit to Israel and it was absolutely fabulous. Granted, we didn't stay at the best hotels Israel has to offer, but if it's your desire to visit the Holy Land, you can't beat this offer. R/T air, fuel surcharges, accommodations, breakfast and dinner daily, professional English speaking guide, all airport transfers, all sightseeing entrance fees. If you have any desire to visit Israel on this 8 day Holy Land tour I highly suggest you consider Troy Tours. We traveled with a great group from all over the United States and had an amazing experience. If you're lucky enough to have Daphne as your tour guide, she might just be the best tour guide ever! From LAX, it's a long flight(s) but totally worth the low price and amazing adventure. Troy Tours completely delivered on this incredible journey, Can was a great help getting everything arranged. If something like this in on your "bucket list", Just do It.

    I took the 8-day escorted tour to Israel on Mar 26-Apr 2. I thought this tour was first-rate even though it was very reasonably priced. And all of my fellow tourers felt the same; we were a pretty diverse but quite cohesive group. We were especially pleased with the tour guide, Roni (didn't get his last name, he said this was his first tour with Troy Tours); he was Israeli, very passionate about Israel, and was supremely knowledgeable, educated, and well-traveled. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know more about Israel, which is a fascinating country.

    Here are my remarks about the May 5th trip to Israel. We enjoyed it but was a little strenuous at times. We would go from 8am to 6pm each day. There were very large crowds everywhere we went. Our guide, Shai, was excellent and knowledgeable. It was hot and would suggest to people who take your tour to take it a month earlier. All hotel accommodations were excellent and our food was OK. Thank you for all your help in accommodating us for this trip. Sincerely, - DH
