My family and I had one of the most wonderful times of our lives on our recent trip to Israel! It would not have been the same without Mabat. We are especially grateful for our extremely knowledgeable and dedicated guide Asher, as well as our kind and helpful driver Avi. Our trip was unforgettable on so many different levels. It was an incredible learning experience, a once-in-a lifetime spiritual adventure, and a really fun time all rolled into one. We saw so many amazing places and got to learn about Israeli history and culture through Asher’s expert talks. Perhaps most meaningfully- we celebrated the Bat Mitzvah of our daughter Eden at the ancient synagogue at Bar’Am national park. Mabat staff made everything easy for us, and made sure that everything went beautifully on that special day. I will never forget dancing the Hora with my family inside those spectacular 1800 year old ancient ruins! I will also never forget the sound of Avi singing Yerushalaim Shel Zahav as we drove into Jerusalem while the sun was setting. 

The pace of our trip was perfect, our hotels and meals were lovely, and our itinerary was planned with extreme attention to detail. We were so impressed that Mabat managed to put together a trip that was both enjoyable and appealing to a wide range of age groups- from my 5 year old son and my teenagers through my older in-laws. From start to finish every day was packed with discovery and learning. Overall our tour vastly exceeded our expectations and we are so glad that we chose Mabat!
