Dear Yael,
I hoped to meet you personally and thank you for all the work you put into this trip of mine. Thanks for so much for the last three weeks.
 The most important thing I wanted from my tour guides was their knowledge of the bible events in relation to the areas visited,
and my expectation was realized in every occasion.

I have a friend interested in visiting Israel and I advised her that I had a excellent time in Israel and your organization is really the way to visit Israel.
I will close for now may the peace of the Lord be with you and your family

Dear all of you!

The group of farmers and advisors are now back in Denmark, filled up with a lot of experience from a beautifull country and strong and warm hearted inhibitants.

Everybody was very satisfied with the organization of the tour, and was very satisfied with the visits, and cultural stops between the “cow visits” and the very good service in airport at arrival and departure.

I am very happy about you 3 hardworking women for the sublime cooperation, and I am looking forward to arrange the next trip to Israel.

Thank you very much and have a nice weekend!

Dear Yael,
Let me start by saying Thank you for the many good things you and Yossi did for me during my pilgrimage trip to the Holy Land.

Even before coming to Israel the Holy Spirit is moving within my soul to love Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem, a calling from God.
Truth is many bible believing Christians would like to do pilgrimage... Rest assure that I will do my best to make this happen, with God's will of course.

Sincerely,

Tsurel did a great job; had someone meet me at either side of each border crossing, hotel was very good. Petra was fantastic and the guide and driver were excellent.

We had a fantastic time!
Hope also to be back in Israel soon!

Dear Yossi,
 
Thank you very much for wonderful and considerate planning of our Israel trip. The guides you have chosen were caring and knowledgeable, giving us great insights into each location as well as making sure the itinerary was suitable for a pregnant woman like me. Thank you for the farewell gift and for being so flexible to our requirements throughout.
 
We have enjoyed our days in Israel very much and we will be sure to recommend you to anyone who wants to visit Israel. Take care.

We enjoyed our tours very much and appreciated Alex's ,our tour guide, knowledge and explanations along the way. It made our tours very interesting and enjoyable!!! Please thank him for us.

Yael,

My experience in Israel was completely out of this world. It was a dream come true.

I want to sincerely thank you for such an excellent customer service, for being so accommodating and for always being easy to reach.
Our trip was better since the moment we planned it thanks to your service and dedication. You guys delivered more than I expected.
THANK YOU!!! I'm sure I will be back soon :-)

The Petra day went very smoothly, pick up was on time.
We were helped through the borders on both sites.
Our Jordanian guide had excellent English and the bus  was air conditioned and comfortable.
Lunch was late in day but very nice in air conditioned hotel.
Take good shoes as there is alot of walking involved
 
All in all a great day, I highly recommend a visit to all
 Thanks Yael!

Dear Ariel,
We have arrived home safely after spending 5 weeks away over the Australian summer. Most of our time was spent in Israel and as you know in addition to a family vacation we came to Israel to celebrate our son Ashley's Barmitzvah.
We were informed of and contacted Yossi Tsurel - (The Bridge) and he said you would provide us with what ever help you could.
You were fantastic. You listened to what we wanted and made suggestions and guided us the whole way. You worked around our existing plans and contributed where ever necessary.

The personal service and all the small things you did for us made our vacation and experience that much easier. Never was anything a problem for you.
We would highly recommend your services to anyone, whether it is an individual, couple, family or group who are looking at travelling to Israel.

Thank you once again for your support, generosity and caring nature.
Kind regards

Hi Linda,
 

I am just writing to THANK YOU for the trip schedule you prepare for me.
We enjoyed a lot every where we went, we came back pleased with the tour, the bus drivers and guides.

I would like to give my special Thanks to Heshie for picking up and dropping us.

Also, I would extend my thanks to all the team of TSUREL THE BRIDGE
for the phone that provided me,
the help available and the dinner voucher.
 
If I ever go back to Israel,
I make sure to contact you first than any other tour company
and will give your information to anybody I know that is planning
to go to Israel.

 
Thank you!     תודה!

​Linda at Tsurel did an amazing job putting together our family's bar mitzvah trip in Israel.
We travelled from Eilat to Acco and had the most meaningful bar mitvah experience at
​Robinson's Arch in Jerusalem. Our Guide Benaya Blum
shared his deep understanding of the region and was
instrumental in the quality of our experience.

Thanks for making this a fantastic family trip.

Hi Linda,

We were more than happy with the tour of Israel you organise for us’.
It would be difficult to find anything to be critical about.
 From being picked up at the airport in Tel Aviv by Hessie and the drive to 
Jerusalem, to our final day when we were picked up and taken to our exit from your country.
I think that there were not many places that we did not see,
from Eilat to the Golan Heights, Caesarea, Haifa to the many other places around Israel. 
We saw everything we were hoping to see and more.
Thanks to your thorough planning through Rent-A-guide
we were treated to more than we expected. 
Each of the guides on the tours were very professional
and knowledgeable and gave a greater understanding
of all facets of our Israeli experience.
The accommodation and food was par excellence.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of
 “Tsurel - The Bridge”  tour company to anybody 
​anticipating travelling to Israel.


Thanking you again Linda.

Dear Linda,


Thank you so much for making this trip a trip of a life time!

You and the Tsurel Agency certainly know how to plan out a very personalized agenda that suited our preferences perfectly!!

It was so comforting to know that you were available to assist with any need or question we had  from the pre-planning of our trip all the way through our checkin at the airport for the return flight home. 

We would HIGHLY recommend the use of the Tsurel company and of course Linda Cohen!!

we embarked upon the most
incredible trip of a lifetime. 
With the assistance & guidance of
Linda Cohen of Tsurel Travel,
we were able to fulfill our dreams
of visiting Israel, our homeland.

 It could not have been  as amazing
as it was without Linda.


 We wouldn't do it any other way.

Recently I have returned from my second trip to Israel.
I choose Tsurel as my travel agent and  tour guide
for the following reasons.

1. Tsurel duty of care toward me was excellent.
2. I was able to make my own itinerary as to what I wanted to do and see.
3. The guides given me had excellent knowledge of all the areas I visited.
4. As this was a historical and Bibical trip I needed guides that could give me
the information required.
5. The team at Tsurel were in contact with me often to ensure that all my needs
and want were fulfilled.
6. I was able to amend my Itinerary at any time to meet my needs.
7.Pick ups and drop off were as I requested on time every time.
8.I was picked up as soon as I left the plane and escorted through custom.
Which I considered very helpful. My ride to hotel was waiting for as soon as I
​ left the airport and taken to hotel.
9. I would recommend Tsurel to anyone that would
like a hassel free enjoyable visit to Israel.

 Hello Linda,
The tour to Israel was certainly Amazing.
An opportunity of a lifetime, never to be forgotten.
 
 
Picrure 1 Dome of the Rock on the temple mount in the Old City of Jerusalem. It has amazing architecture.
Pictures 2,3 are the enormity of Masada with the cable car taking passengers to where King Herod had his hide-away.
Picture 4 very peaceful pleasant Jordan River where multitudes of tourist are water baptized.
Picture 5. Hillside by the Israeli- Egyptian border. So much of Israel hillsides look similar yet they produce enormous crop.
 
Tried to take a few of the overall views . Even pictures dont really do the land justice.

Kindest regards,

Hello Linda,
 
We returned to snow earlier this morning, a shock to the system after Israel.
We had an excellent two weeks mainly thanks to you and your planning and attention to detail.
The Montefiore in Jerusalem couldn’t have been better.  The staff  were very helpful especially with the phone, I have never used one like that at it proved invaluable The position was just right, we could walk to most places and found some good restaurants at the bottom of Hillel, particularly Alma.
The tours with’ Rent a Guide’ were full days with well qualified guides. There was only one day when the guiding was in Spanish and English, not ideal. Apart from that the remainder were all English only.  We were not easy to please as I have visited Israel several times and I am Jewish. My Partner Brian is a Christian and this was his first visit . The tours catered for us both, excellent.
The evening light show at David’s Tower was a novel way to spend New Year’s Eve, a great idea of yours.
The taxi transfers worked well, we brought the return journey forward by half an hour as the traffic at that time of night was heavy, just to be sure.
The Dan Panorama, again was in a good position for us. Jaffa was in walking distance and the restaurants in Neve Tzedek were delightful.  Ralph  on the Reception desk has been there for many years and is a fount of  knowledge, very helpful.
Thank you for your help in putting this trip together, I don’t think you could have improved anything.
Regards

Thank you so much for organising tours, pick ups etc.
Everything was wonderful.

I would recommend travelling to Israel to anyone.  And you Linda made that possible for us to have such a memorable trip.
I now have a better understanding and appreciation of Israel.
You made it all possible to see the history of the country and mixed in the Jewish and Christian sites.
And mostly, you were very patient with all the changes you had to make for our convenience.

Again, thank you and thank you too for the lovely aerial photo book you gave us, meeting us at Tel Aviv airport and
giving us a cell phone to use which was very convenient.
And to top that, you checked on how we were doing and made sure everything went as planned.



Toda, toda, toda.

Einat was very professional and attentive to ensure that my 10- day trip went smoothly. There were a couple of hiccups but she got onto it straight away and fixed any problems that arose. I had a marvellous time in Israel and the tours were interesting and informative. I came to see Israel and I did.

I would recommend you use Tsurel Bridge to make your travel plans, book tours and even be the guides.

Hi there everyone,

My family and I would like to express gratitude to the Tsurel organization thru your staff Einat who assisted us in securing Jordanian visa for our Petra tour. 
 
We are grateful for the way we have been assisted thru out our pilgrimage to the holy land because by the use of your website systems, we are able to fully entrust our trip even without us seeing each other during the transaction. It has been convenient using the internet payment option and though our Jordanian visa did not catch up with our flight schedules, we are grateful for the commitment of your organization to reimburse the amount we paid thru your payment systems without difficulty. Certainly, we are happy that even without much personal interaction, we can trust your payment systems.
We shall get in touch with you during our next visit to the Holy Land!

Hi Linda,
 
I write to you to thank you for making all the arrangements for our recent trip to Israel. Apart from a minor hiccup at the end, it went exactly to plan.
 
We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our trip to Israel so special. Your arrangements from the moment we disembarked our aircraft on arrival until we were dropped off at the airport at the end of our trip were nothing short of first class. You arranged for our guide/driver Shimon to take us to places that we would never have seen on a normal tour. Shimon conducted our tour in a professional, friendly and extremely informative manner. He presented the different ‘narratives’ in an objective, neutral manner. We have visited many places around the world but your arrangements for our visit to Israel placed our trip at the top of the list in providing us with so many memories of a lifetime.
 
Thank you to you and your team for a very, very special holiday!
 
 
Kindest regards

I've always been fascinated with Israel's biblical and historical sites, its a country I've always dreamed of visiting.
 
I retired a few years ago and in May this year I decided that I needed to start ticking off my bucket list and Israel was right on top.
 
I didn't know anyone who had visited the country so I contacted Tripadvisor for some recommendations as to which agent to use. Tsurel was suggested a number of times.  I visited the Tsurel website and from the reviews I read I thought yes this is the one.  I sent an email to Tsurel and the lovely Linda Cohen emailed me straight back. 
 
I told Linda exactly what I wanted from the 10 days I wished to visit commencing November and that I would be travelling alone.  She kept in constant contact with me adhering to my every wish.  From the moment I stepped off the plane in Tel Aviv everything was organised.  From taxis, to internal flights, hotels, breakfasts and guided tours.  Tsurel even provided a mobile phone allowing me to make and receive free calls and access to the internet.  
 
My every dream and expectation was fulfilled and more.  I absolutely loved the trip and on a number of occasions became quite emotional and overwhelmed by what I'd seen.  My 10 days were packed with siteseeing but not so much that I felt exhausted, I did sleep well at night though.
 
On the 8th day I fell ill but still managed, at a push to go on the tours.  When Linda found out she kept in contact with me ensuring I was okay and also arranged a late checkout at the hotel on my day of departure at no extra charge.
 
I've kept my itinerary as I absolutely intend to return to Israel with my daughter in a few years time and will definitely use Tsurel to organise my visit once more.

The trip was well planned and a total success!
Thank you you for going the extra miles to make sure my dad enjoyed the experience and selecting Eli Ibgy as our guide thru AKKO! And thank you for retrieving his cell phone that he lost in a cab! Unbelievable! Thank you!

The hotels “The Dan” were excellent! The food !!! The service!!! Wow!

We will visit Israel again in a couple years and hope that we stay in touch with you, as we will be in need of you special touch we come back!

The Night Spectacular and the Sorcerers Majic and Comedy show we’re awesome to say the least! Great choices on that and the Kotel Tunnel tour!!!

 
Can’t wait to go to Israel again with you and your tour guides!
Thank you  Linda!!!
 
Best wishes,

Hi Linda,

I want to thank you for a wonderful trip for me and my entire family.
We will always remember the guide Shimon Palmer who always said do we want to take a “hick” which meant hiking and going through tunnels and caves. Some of the other highlights were digging in Caves and my grandchildren finding artifacts during the Roman times. They will always remember the camel rides and of course the “old city” of Jerusalem and the miraculous Mitzpe Ramon crater of Beresheet. Our itinerary was very good and  let us see a lot of Israel.

Again thank you for helping to make our Israel trip so special.

If you want a "cookie cutter" tour of the Holy Lands on a bus with 100 of your closest friends, then you DO NOT want this website and Tsurel.
On the other hand, if you want a truly customized, intimate experience of Israel and Petra, you are at the right place.  Linda Cohen of Tsurel made our dream of a unique, individual, upscale adventure in Israel and Petra a reality.  She started working with me months before our actual departure to take my vague notion of what I wanted to see and do and turned it into a creative itinerary.  She saw to every detail, and every detail was executed flawlessly.  There were a lot of moving parts to our adventure, and they all fell precisely into place.  From her personally meeting us at the airport on arrival and handing us a cell phone to use in Israel to "check up" emails, Linda made sure we had a great time. 

She and Tsurel have my respect and sincere thanks!

Dear Einat
 
I just wanted to write you and let you know how happy we were with our trip to Israel.
We expected a good trip, but with you and your company we got an exceptionable trip!
As you are aware I am a 4th generation concert promoter and I have worked with stars all my life. We were treated as stars!!
From the time we meet at the airport all went great – the cab company was perfect and used a nice Mercedes.
Spending Independence Day with my Israeli family was wonderful.
Then the guide picked us up on time in a new car. The guide, Mr. Eli Igby, was the best ever. I really mean that!
His knowledge of both Israel today and the past was exceptional. Great personality! Totally at ease with him.
Eli knew all the great local places to eat. In my opinion VIP tours is what he should do. We saw the places
on the itinerary but also great places Eli knew. Example: St George’s monastery in the middle of a desert canyon.
We became friends enough where we invited him to our home in the U S A and I am considering duel citizenship.
The hotel was 5* and breakfast every day was incredible. We were located in the heart of the city – 10-15 minute walk from Old City. This was more than a vacation but a trip of a lifetime.
And yes remember this was not my first trip to Israel, it just was THE BEST!
 
Thank you for all you did. Thank you for the cell phone so if anything came up you were right there. We felt like stars,
the ones we had to take care of.
 
Your company should be proud to have you as an agent –
ELI was the best! Made the trip!

 

Shalom and respect

Hi Linda
The trip has gone all too quickly and exceeded expectations.
The itinerary provided a wide variety of activities and places of interest.
We cannot speak too highly of our guide who is a walking historical and cultural encyclopaedia. Oreet managed the generation gap with great tact and finesse . At the end of the tour she even managed to receive an unprompted hug from a 15 year old boy. No greater accolade could be give.
 
We leave with wonderful and lasting memories for a lifetime.
Thank you for putting it altogether.

Dear Linda,

 
The trip was fantastic!

We saw and did everything I wanted plus met good people on our tours. 

You are fabulous!

Hello Linda,

Thanks again for making our two week trip to Israel special.

You were able to customize our trip so we could do exactly what we wanted to do when we wanted to do it.
I had read reviews about the construction in front of the Prima City hotel in Tel Aviv and you were able to get us a room on the side.  While they had a fantastic breakfast, the room was not up to the standards of the Dan Panoramas in Eilat and Jerusalem. I suppose I was taken by the fact that is was just a half block to the beach which we did not use.  An early check in there was really appreciated after an overnight flight.

All of the transit arrangements were as planned with the exception of the Israir flight back to Tel Aviv from Eilat.  One thing I had forgotten to mention is that as soon as we landed it Tel Aviv, they wheeled up a ladder to the left engine to do some additional work on it. I would strongly recommend against future travel with Israir. Thank you for the refund on the show we missed due to very late arrival that evening.

I really liked that we toured in small buses with the largest group, excluding the Tel Aviv Tour was about 14.  

The day trip to Petra went smoothly and our guide for the day Rima was very knowledgeable. 

You were very attentive in working with me on our itinerary and we ended with a well designed trip.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to any friends considering a visit to Israel.

 

Thanks so much

Dear Linda,

Rick and I had the most amazing time in Israel.  Eli, our guide, was stupendous. We learned so much and saw so much. 
I am recommending you and he to all our friends.

You were wonderful.  It was so nice to actually meet you.

Thank you again and safe and healthy summer.

I can not tell you over and over how much we loved our time in Israel and your help.
I have already recommended our guide to friends.

Linda did a great job handling our vacation needs.
Answered all of my questions and set up my hotels with connecting rooms and the beds just as we asked.
Each and every one of the taxi rides and transport services happened without a glitch, even to and from Jordan.
Six different hotels, two countries-- flights to and from Eilat, many days of touring, delivered exactly as promised.
Linda answered my texts promptly as to dinner spots and other questions in the midst of the trip.
All of the transport vehicles were top notch. She even went so far as to arrange for perfect weather and polite camels for us to ride.
I can be a picky person, and I must say Linda did an excellent job helping us with a memorable vacation.
Med Sea, Dead Sea, Red Sea, Sea of Galilee!
