Now you’ll be kept up to date on the latest news from Travel Composer.


I just want to say thank you for everything! It was such a special and amazing trip. You didn’t skip a beat and we’re so appreciative for all of the hard work you put into making it what it was. Every little detail was noticed from the bus and bus driver, down to the towels and goody bags you provided.

My entire family, young and old had an experience of a lifetime which is exactly what Josh and I wanted to happen. They all have memories that they will take with them forever. All of our children have fallen in love with Israel and cannot wait for the day that they get to return.

 I look forward to working with you again on Drew’s Bar Mizvah trip and know that we are in the greatest hands. I will shout your name from the rooftops.

-Elana Mintz, Beachwood, OH

I don’t quite know where to begin… you created the trip of a lifetime for us.

The guide you paired us with – Izzy – was a true gem. It is obvious that he loves what he does – he was bubbling with energy and compassion. He had the unique ability to pick up on each person in our group’s individual needs and address them proactively. He went above and beyond to make sure that everyone was happy. His knowledge is endless, as is his passion for Israel in all its authenticity.

The itinerary that you created was fantastic. I love how you wove in the host lunches and dinners to allow us to immerse in the culture in a way we would not have had the chance to otherwise. The food was amazing, and the vibes were always imbued with a remarkable sense of calm welcoming. The market tour with Arava was a true favorite – I’m still dreaming about the vibrant colors. The army base was another high point. The repelling and cave tour was incredible – and somehow didn’t feel touristy at all. I could go on and on; everything was simply perfect.

We thank you for this experience. You made it an absolute pleasure. We will eagerly pass your name to others who ask. Wishing you a happy new year.

-Kerry Glass, Millburn, NJ

We had such a magical and amazing time in Israel.  Thank you for the perfect week.

Happy New Year!

I will definitely be back!

-Lola Salazar, Denver, CO

We are so grateful to you for your excellent service throughout. It was only punctuated with those thoughtful welcome packages upon arrival at The King David, and for rearranging some plans on such short notice because of the torrential rain! Outstanding, and so appreciated!!

And, of course, thanks as well for the ever-charming and knowledgeable Izzy, who we knew and already loved, and for Ofer, who stepped right up under less-than-ideal circumstances, all the while with his kind, caring, and effective demeanor.

We were all really thrilled to have worked with you again,and feel smug knowing we have a secret weapon like you in our pocked for when we’re ready to plan our next trip.

-Fred Cohen, Phoenixville, PA

After the trip you created for us, it’s clear to me that Israel is the most beautiful country in the world.

The Lord knew what he was doing when he created it.

Odelia – the guide you paired us with – was truly a godsend. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable, experienced and personable. We just hit it off. I’ll definitely be requesting her on our next visit.

The hotels were all pristine and luxurious – all 5 star and very accommodating to our needs.

The itinerary was varied and vibrant. We enjoyed every site we visited. Although we were busy every day, we appreciated how you wove in downtime without sacrificing any opportunities to soak up all the culture and history.

It was the trip of a lifetime and I cannot wait to come back. When we do, you’ll definitely be hearing from us.

May the Lord bless you and your family keep you safe. (I light a candle every week at church for peace for Israel with all nations.) May you all be healthy and have a blessed Merry Christmas and a great new year.

-Christine Baumgartner, Morrison, CO

Thank you very much, we had a wonderful vacation and so appreciated you making this work on late notice. We had a lovely time and are leaving with full hearts, full minds and full tummies, just the way we like to end our vacations. Thank you for the lovely welcome package and for your wonderful and constant communication – both were very much appreciated. I also really appreciated your briefing documents that you had sent through by city; we took many of your recommendations and it was a very helpful reference document for Brad and I. I can only imagine how hard you work to find the best guides for your clients as they are often what will make or break an experience.

Thank you again for everything and we will absolutely be in touch should we visit this area of the world again. We will definitely recommend our friends and family to be in contact with you.

-Holly Lemmon, Toronto, Canada

Everything has been amazing and your support in planning as well as changes during the trip was more than we could have hoped for.

-Kyle Jung, San Antonio, TX

We just arrived home. It was a wonderful, memorable trip. We feel lucky to have had the chance to work with you. You were like our travel concierge! What a pleasure

-Elyse Ingber, Woodbury NY

WOW what a great trip! It was like bringing the Bible to life. And our guide, Roni,  was the best with so much knowledge to share, along with humor and an incredible amount of facts about each site. We were at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher 3 times to be able to see all that was there due to the crowds and delays by the Armenians.  Our guide in Bethlehem went above and beyond to get us in to see the Nativity site between masses in the church and to get us to our mass, as well. We even saw sites not on our itinerary. The accommodations were above and beyond our expectations! And the gift bag was very thoughtful.  All in all, an excellent experience!  Todah to you!

-Pamela Seydor, Rostraver PA

Peter and I would like to thank you both for a trip of a lifetime. It exceeded expectations -something that rarely happens. The attention to detail you both provided made all the difference. Shannie Paine is more of a very engaging college professor than a tour guide, his knowledge on so many topics blew us away, plus he was a lot of fun.

-Ricki Sabia, J.D., Silver Spring, MD

We went to Israel for the first time in December for a wedding, and wanted to take the opportunity to stay longer and build a special trip for just us, too. Travel Composer orchestrated an incredible customized itinerary. Hani – the owner – wove together a perfect balance of sightseeing, the best restaurants, the chicest boutique hotels (we especially loved the White Villa), and time to relax. The old city tunnel tours and western wall were the highlights for us. Travel Composer took care of all our details, booking everything from our tour guides to our tables to our lodging to our airport transfers. Hani deliberately and expertly matched our itinerary style to our personalities.

Ariel Freeman Sanett, Chicago, IL

My husband has family in Israel, so we decided to plan a visit for Christmas break when the kids were off from school. They’re 7, 5, and 1, which can be challenging to plan for, but with Travel Composer’s help, we were able to put together a kid-friendly trip that was also sophisticated and an actual vacation for the grown-ups as well. We went bird watching in the Hula Valley, took a jeep ride through Ramon Crater, and went horseback riding at Vered HaGalil. It was a trip we’ll never forget.

Julie Scheff Bielenberg, Denver, CO

We planned a destination wedding in Israel – and wanted to offer our guests much more hand-holding since they were traveling so far – but we just didn’t have the bandwidth for it. Hani of Travel Composer helped bridge that gap perfectly. She took care of all details around the wedding without planning the actual wedding. She booked all 150 of our guests’ hotel accommodations, airport transfers, private specialty tours (Dead Sea, Jerusalem, Petra) and even helped design and order our monogrammed gift bags. And the whole time, it was with that sunny smile of hers. She was a dream.

Our Travel Composer guide, Opher Rom, was amazing. No doubt he was a highlight of the whole trip. Knowledgeable but fun and relaxed. We had a great time and really enjoyed your beautiful country! So much to see and do and I know we just hit the high points leaving some for the next time. We will have to see if we make April 2018….too early yet!  The airport escort was a wonderful touch for us. Many thanks again.

– Carol Fischman, Vero Beach, FL

Thank you so much for everything! We decided to go to Israel last minute – high season in June no less – and Hani was able to accommodate our family and put everything together quickly and beautifully. My kids – ages 12 and 10 – were engaged the whole time. Our Travel Composer tour guide, Rona Melnik, was PHENOMENAL!!! In every way – from engaging the kids, to organization and promptness, to fitting in extra things we wanted to do – above and beyond any travel guide I have ever worked with – and I traveled a lot. I look forward to working with Travel Composer again in the future. We’ve already referred several friends.
