First, let me say if I could rate this with more than 5 stars, I would!! I was beyond thrilled with the outing hosted by Bein Harim tour company....but specifically with Tamar. Our family traveled with four generations to visit Bethlehem and Jerusalem, so this outing was the SINGLE most important one of our whole trip. My 92yo wheelchair mobile grandmother was along, my +70 yo parents and Aunt/Uncle, my daughter and myself were the folks participating in this private tour. When we arrived at the dock, I was overjoyed to see Tamar standing there holding our name! She was the tour guide from our Cruise booked excursion to Masada and the Dead Sea the day before! We loved her then...but this tour just pushed her over the top to part of the family :) Truly, her personal attention and caring about ensuring our day was perfect spanned the gamut. From learning all of our names, to pointing out little things she knew we would want to see from listening to all of us speak about what we were hoping to see, to even helping push the wheelchair at times...just all of it...she was simply the perfect guide for the perfect day.
I cannot say enough how much we loved her. She really made us feel special, and we really felt like she genuinely cared as much as we did about ensuring my 92yo grandmother had the experience of her lifetime. Tamar, Nan said she loved you and will pray for you :) You made this day even more special by the person you are in your soul...you're a Blessing!
