How important was your tour guide to your trip?

In short, if I ever go back I would only want Brian or someone that he recommends to be my tour guide.

Here are just a few of the things that Brian added to our experience.

  • Passion for Christ and Scripture
  • Passion for helping Christians gain understanding of our Jewish history.
  • Fluent in Hebrew, Arabic, & English
  • A wealth of knowledge that never ended
  • A great sense of humor
  • Humility

Back in Jesus' day disciples would follow around Rabbi's who would teach them from their daily life occurrences. This is pretty much the way we felt with Brian. He just oosed out passion and knowledge from every ounce of his being. I am so thankful that we had him as our guide. 

On top of that he had a sense of adventure... in a later post I will describe a pre-sunrise cab ride, sprinting up Geth-Heper, getting 'lost' in Nazareth, and picking up sticks and rocks to fight off the dogs that could have been the end of our crew... not your ordinary tour guide :)
