The virtual experience was so educational and so entertaining that it was as close as we could get at this time to actually experiencing Israel in person. Teachers and students declared this “trip to Israel” to be the best day of learning ever. Several students shared they weren’t aware of the existence of so many animals native to Israel. We feel closer to each other and closer to Israel as we continue to celebrate Israel’s 73rd birthday at the Miriam Browning Jewish Learning Center of Congregation Beth Israel.

We recently took 17 members of our family for my son's Bar Mitzvah. We travelled all over Israel. From the very start of the process, Beni was terrific. He made the planning easy and fun. We saw not only the top tourist sites, but we were also taken off the beaten path. The team had a passion and desire to make our trip amazing - and that was evident throughout our experience. Our guide, Yonaton, was unbelievably knowledgeable, but also had a gift for knowing when to stick to the schedule and when to make adjustments on the fly. Mayever took what would have been a good trip and made it truly magical. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
This was the best trip my family has ever taken! We have done a lot of trips with private guides; often we find many weak aspects of these trips and are left with a small taste of disappointment. That is NOT what happened here. Mayever heard our goals and delivered a high-energy, rigorous trip just as we requested. We went on "off the beaten path" hikes and saw places we never imagined. They were responsive and flawless. Our guide always had everything timed right and made amazing recommendations. We feel so lucky to have worked with Mayever. This company is one of a kind!
Beni is the ultimate in Israeli tour guides with wide-ranging knowledge of the country and its subjects, deep relationships and connections, a sense of adventure and warmth in connecting with kids of all ages. Would highly recommend him as a guide or for putting together a full itinerary. We did a glamping experience in the Negev with him which was extraordinary.
We have loved being able to bring such high-quality Israel travel experiences virtually to our families with Mayever. They really bring Israel to life even from afar and have helped inspire many of our families to build an interest in traveling in-person to Israel, hopefully in the near future. We look forward to working with Mayever again.

Mayever made our trip to Israel the best it could be. We are grateful for the patience, knowledge and help they offered. The guides were outstanding. The team at Mayever put together the most exciting itinerary perfectly geared towards my family’s style. It’s amazing how they met our needs exactly. Our guides were a wealth of knowledge about archaeology, history and religion, and kept us interested.
We had a terrific trip to Israel with Beni and his team. Our group included three generations and 14 family members. We spent a lot of time upfront with Beni planning the itinerary. He was patient with revisions and worked to incorporate our requests. The logistics on the ground were excellent and he and his support team were extremely responsive. Mayever organized some unique experiences that we never would have done without their advice. Our trip to the Dead Sea and visit to a winery and water tunnels were not to be missed! Our bus and bus driver were perfect and our tour guide was kind, flexible and knowledgeable. The trip exceeded expectations. Israel has so much to offer -- it was a true trip of a lifetime especially when shared with grandparents, parents and children at the same time!
Attended a zoom tour of the Judean desert. Did not have any high expectations, but it was breathtaking! Can't wait to be able to join the in-person tours with Mayever!
