Van, “This truly was a blessed tour. It was exactly what we had wanted, and so much more. Thank you SO much for the hard work you put into making this an amazing trip and a reality for people like us. The trip was well-designed and covered so much of the Biblical sites and territory with many great vistas! Every day was amazing. We will be relishing it and making good use of it for a long time.”
Dale and Tammy S. - Springfield, Missouri - 2011 tour  - college professor

Van, “I would like to thank you for an outstanding 21 day experience. I am still thinking about all the things we did. Now I notice things more in the news, etc. when I hear Israel, Jordan or Egypt mentioned. It was a dream of mine to be able to take a trip like this. I will always remember it.” Phyllis S. - Houston, Texas - 2011 tour

Van, “Wow! What a great experience!! I can’t thank you enough. I want to sincerely thank you for all the hard work you put into making this such a special memory. It’s everything and more than I could have asked for. You took care of every aspect and I felt comfortable and safe. I learned a lot and feel that I got a good feel for what Moses experienced 3,500 years ago. I pray that God continues to bless you and your wife so you can continue to bless so many others on these trips. It obviously takes so much planning and preparation and God’s given you the desire and energy to do this. It’s fantastic! Thank you for being a great leader and giving me some of the best days of my life!! I look forward to another opportunity to join you once again, and I will definitely refer all my friends to you.”

Hank and Susan W. - San Diego, California - 2008 tour   

Van, “My thanks for your outstanding leadership of the tour. It definitely exceeded our expectations. I am appreciating the planning even more as I reflect on all that we did. It was obvious that hundreds of hours of preparation had to go into a tour like we had. Every day’s schedule was planned to maximize the time and was well designed. The Bible background was very complete. Every site was tied to the relevant Bible passages. We did see every one of the intended sights and many places that other tours never get to. We are reading through the detailed accomplished itinerary you sent out after the tour was over and are reliving the trip. I do not know how you did it as I never saw you writing things down.” 
Dr. Paul & Jani L. - Longview, Texas - 2009 tour - college professor

The trip was all, plus more than we expected. Thank you for your accomplished itinerary on Jordan and Egypt. What a lot of work. It cleared up some questions we had with our pictures and notes. We still ask each other, ‘Did we really do all this?’ We will never forget this trip. Thank you for all your work before, during, and after.“
