A 5 Senses® private tour celebrating a 60th birthday. We had first timers as well as repeat travelers. Itinerary, execution and follow up was fabulous. Thanks to Shai and Benny for helping bring my vision into reality and handling all of the complicated logistics beautifully!

Kenes provided our family of 5 adults a fascinating, diverse excursion through many of Israel's highlights. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. This is the second time I've toured with Kenes. I highly recommend them.
