Artisans provided the perfect itinerary for our first trip to Israel. Our guide and driver - Amir and Yaron - were wonderful, personable and knowledgeable. Maria at Artisans was responsive during trip when we had questions as was their local contact. The culinary tour led by Aliza was a highlight. Great experience overall.
