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.

Very good guide and driver who were with us the whole trip. We never had to worry about our luggage as they took care of it going from place to place as we flew two times - what a luxury! Hotels were wonderful, some Outstanding! We thought that we received special treatment at them being clients of Artisans of Leisure.
