We explored and were given detailed explanations for the sights and even added a few extras. We all three of us couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

This one day trip with Michael is truly majestic! The beauty of the landscape and monasteries is matched by Michael’s deep knowledge of local history and Biblical texts. Our tour was enhanced by educational conversations on current situation in this complex region.
