Thanks to Enrique, our truly wonderful guide, and to Benjamin of Compass for creating the private tour package, our group of six, over-55 year olds had an exceptional experience seeing Israel and also Petra and Wadi Rum in Jordan. There was enough flexibility each day where we were able to learn much history, take breaks, shoot photos, avoid long lines and even make extra stops that we requested such as markets and other interest spots. I would choose Compass and Enrique again and recommend them to my family and friends.

We have just completed a private tour for a week with Compass and would highly recommend company services to anyone contemplating either a short or longer visit to Israel. Our guide Saul knew how to manage the group, with his humour, knowledge, patience and attention to the varying ages and interests. Some of us had visited Israel many times before but he kept us engaged and we continued to learn new facts particularly through his stories and anecdotes. Highly recommend Compass
