Dear David and Chana – We want to thank you for hosting us and our children on an amazing kosher tour of Iceland this summer!!!   You put together a non-stop thrill ride of exhilarating other-worldly experiences, taking care of all the logistics, transportation, guides, venue selections, scheduling and other details and catering to the interests of all ages in the family.  At the same time, you were able to customize the program to accommodate our own requests and suggestions, all seamlessly integrated.  All we needed to do was show up and we found ourselves climbing glaciers, riding snowmobiles, speeding through arctic glacial waters on zodiac boats, navigating through lava caves and hiking through the most spectacular scenery we have ever encountered. You were always there to address any special needs that arose and we particularly appreciated your efforts to accommodate our various family members’ food allergies – and of course your arranging for Anthony to lein his bar mitzva parasha on his birthday!   You were both also great company and great hosts at all times. Kol hakavod and we will be reminiscing about our Iceland trip with you for many years to come, always over a glass of Floki! Best wishes,

Daniel Lapin

Dear Chana and David, The pleasure of the Chag was significantly augmented for Susan and me by the outstanding quality of the program. We were so impressed with the resort, the catering, and the many people whom we so enjoyed meeting. Observing your strong leadership and constant eagle-eyed but inconspicuous supervision of literally everything was inspiring. We also deeply appreciated the many opportunities we enjoyed to get to know you both and came away feeling that the world was a less lonely place—we had new friends! Thank you again for an unforgettable Sukot experience. Warmly

Stuart & Gloria Shocket, Netanya

As independent travelers, it was with some trepidation we joined a group. Immediately, we felt in good hands by the updated information and availability of organizers. The whole tour to Batumi  Georgia was a balance of activities and free time, without the feeling of being over-organized. The friendliness, efficiency, and flexibility as well as good choices of activities, and not forgetting the superb cuisine made for a memorable holiday. We look forward to further trips once we have lost the weight gained.  In short, highly recommended.  Thank you Chana and David and Kosher Travelers.

The Kosher Travelers – a wonderfully integrated group of 35 guests included participants from age 17 up to 74 — fearlessly climbed to beautiful vistas and geological marvels of this unique country. We visited waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, geysers, active volcanoes, and lava generated dreamscape rock formations.     Sailing out in a motorized rubber dinghy to see the largest glacier in Europe which Icelanders talk about as if it were an old friend or a venerable relative, we toasted our arrival with a shot of Floki – a local whisky, on the rocks – in this case a chunk of 500-year-old glacier ice. Our fantastic knowledgeable guide, Yossi Ben Ami, was so enamored of the history and geology of everyplace we visited, that his enthusiasm became contagious. The waterfalls were lacy elegant streams falling from on high or thundering torrents rivaling the legendary Sambatyon River which rages six days a week and rests on Shabbos. Our delicious meals were always beautifully presented usually in our own private dining room. For Shabbat we were treated to delicious meals at the Chabad house in Rejkavik, Iceland’s capital city.  Rebbetzin Mushky and Rabbi Avi Feldman were most gracious hosts.  We flew up to Akureyri, known as the Northern capital of Iceland. A delightful small town, which boasts the northern most botanical garden in the world, traffic lights which feature a heart-shaped red light, and an airport runway in the middle of a fjord and a protected nature preserve know as the Black Castle where huge lava formations suggest birds, cathedrals, or whatever your imagination can conjure up. On our last day we visited the Sky Lagoon – a heavenly Oceanside thermal spa. While there, after luxuriating in the relaxing warmth you can go in for the ‘Ritual’ treatment which starts with a dunk in rather cold water then continues with a salt/mineral scrub, a sauna and other delights. The hotels were all well-located and comfortable. The other tour members from around the United States, Europe and Israel were a fun-loving, intelligent, cosmopolitan, amiable group. Kosher Travelers has many other imaginative invigorating trips planned. Don’t leave home without them. Contact the company at koshertravelers.com.  Helen Weiss Pincus, New Jersey Iceland August 2022
