    Dear Mark,

    I trust this finds you well.

    I'm writing because I'm working on a book and we would like to do a feature about the Nogah Hareuveni Biblical Landscape garden. I was wondering if I could connect with you over email for further details and information about the book?
    Kind regards,

    We made it home safely. Thank you so much, Mark. You're such a fantastic tour guide. You are so knowledgeable and funny. You made our trip through the Holy Land so pleasurable. You really did a great job. May God continue to bless you and your family. Thank you again.

    Is there any way you can send us prayer requests from Israel? We can't trust the news we get. We are praying for Israel several times a week and trust you to give us real requests base on truth not speculation. If you see the families at Abraham's dinner camp, please tell them we are praying for them by "face" since we can't remember their names.

    My husband and I have been on many tours over the years. We have never had a tour guide who was so vastly knowledgable and able to impart that knoledge without being boring. You were a wonderful tour guide! You made our entire Israel trip memorable. Thank you for all the wonderful days you provided.

    2 years ago I was preparing for my 2nd trip to Israel. Since I had already visited some of the same locations we were scheduled to go, I expected a pleasant re-acquaintance with them. But Mark's knowledge and expertise deepened my knowledge and appreciation for those places (and the new ones we went, as well). Mark is the best tour guide I have experienced in Israel, and I still remember much of what he said. He is also efficient and kind! Thank you for the beautiful trip you helped create for me and my family, Mark. We will never forget it.

    The memories of our Golden Hills Church journey still resonate in my mind and the historical knowledge you pocess made our journey that more of a blessing. The stop at the Mt. of Beatitudes is just one of the highlights of the trip. I mentioned to you that our bus group still convenes at the Escos for fellowship and dinner and we share our experiences. Please continue to stay in touch. Shalom!

    I think fondly of my time in Israel and am amazed at all I have learned. Mark Gershom is the greatest tour guide. He has extensive knowledge of theology, anthropology and landscape. I gained more from my trip than I ever thought possible. I’d take this tour 100 more times. Visiting Israel with Mark as your guide is a must!

    What an amazing experience it was to visit Israel for my first time earlier this year. I often find myself thinking about it. Mark was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw and also understood what we saw. I would definitely recommend him in the future.

    Mark is a fantastic tour guide and even though my trip with him as a guide was in 2014 we remain friends. He has a vast knowledge on everything and is so accommodating. I would love to have him as my tour guide again. It was truly spectacular.

    Mark is the best and most knowledgeable tour guide I have ever experienced in my tours of 24 countries. I was truly amazed at the knowledge he shared about the Bible and The Holy Land with our church group in November of 2018. Visiting Jordan and Israel was a dream come true!
    Now when I read my Bible I can make connections between the places I actually visited and God's Word. Mark speaks numerous languages and is a wonderful, gifted and talented fellow with a great family!

    Mark is a devout Messianic Jew who has thorough knowledge of the land and landscape. He taught our group so much. A lifetime of memories built in 9 short days. I give him 5 stars as a tour guide. He took into consideration the elderly in our group, and slowed down the pace. I learned so much from him and gained a friend for life. Can't wait to see him again. Whether in Heaven or Israel.

    Mark is an incredibly knowledgeable, personable and professional guide. My most recent trip to Israel was my third one, and I learned a great deal of new things from Mark! My favorite aspect of his guidance was all of the deep knowledge he has of the flora and fauna - a surprising amount of which is referenced in the Bible! He of course has a phenomenal recall of Biblical passages and brings relevant examples of history to life. He is an excellent manager of logistics, people, time and opportunities. The hotels, meals, sites visited and attentive leadership were of the highest caliber. I felt that the value of traveling with Mark Gershom far exceeded my expectations and enthusiastically encourage anyone considering a trip to Israel to only consider going with him!

    Mark Gershom (Wednesday, 12 August 2020 12:10)

    I have been taking groups to Israel since 1984. I have been to Israel 30 times. I have had several tour guides. Some have been good, some ok, and one was a disaster. Mark is one of the best tour guides that has lead our groups. He is very knowledgeable of the History, the Biblical sites, and the religions in Israel. I received more compliments from my group last September 2019 about a tour guide than at any other time. I promise that you will not be disappointed in choosing Mark Gershom as a guide to lead you and your people on a tour that will change your life. I had him scheduled for a tour this September, but because of the Coronavirus, I had to cancel our tour. God Bless you, Mark, for your guidance.

    Mark was not only our tour guide in October of 2018, he has since become a dear friend to me. His insight and guidance during that time absolutely made the difference for me from turning a "tour" into a "pilgrimage" . It was a life-changing experience for me. God led our group to Mark.

    Absolutely the very best tour guide we have ever had. Mark's knowledge of not only Israel but also the Bible was amazing. Hisexuberance was felt from the moment we started till we were all hugging good byes. I have never stayed in touch with any tour guide till I met Mark, hopefully I will have the pleasure of his friendship for many years. A tour of Israel without Mark is great, but with Mark it will be tour of a lifetime. Hope to have the pleasure of his expertise again in the near future.

    Shalom Mark my friend, I count our blessings to have met you and walked with you through Israel this past December. I feel even though I've been a Christ follower since I was 7, I'm just now able to study with the prophetic in mind for such a time as this. During our stay, I only slept one night as I lay awake, then rose to study what we just visited and what the next day held. It was not a vacation, but a spiritual walk. Your knowledge of the land and it's people helped to clarify many misconceptions. While the world is changing, stay true. May the Lord bless you and keep you and all of your family. Until we meet again....

    Hi Mark! We made it home, back to southern, lower Michigan early this morning, Jan.4th. I woke up ready to get on the bus for our next day's tour and missing the sound of your voice. Thank you for making our time spent in Israel so memorable. You are one of God's many gifts to Israel and to His church. Blessings on your day and may your time away from work be restful and refreshing for you, Army Chaplain Dan and K'garten teacher Glenda.

    Hey there Mark, My wife, Linda, & I want you to know that we truly enjoyed your tour of The Holy Land. We were there with Pastor Darrell Stapelton & the group from West WA. On Sept,
    11th you took us to The Sea of Galilee. We rode on Daniel's boat. It was my birthday. Linda asked the group to sing Happy Birthday to me on the bus ride that day.What a perfect way to celebrate my day. We really appreciate the excellent manner in which you explained the Holy sites. Thank you fro the bottom of our hearts.

    My dear Mark, we toured with you in May 2017 (the Tennessee group, mostly) and want to thank you for such an informative tour of the Land. Your personal touch to the historic sites we visited made our tour so much more memorable. As a believer, you enhanced our trip and we are forever grateful. Your web site is wonderful. While we were there, we could be overwhelm with the history and the significance of each site. Now, thru your site, we can revisit each site and hear you once again explain the site to us. I appreciate the efforts you have made to reinforce our memories each time we visit your site. We were blessed to have you as our guide.

    Hello Mark!
    It's been a couple of weeks at home in Texas and I just wanted to let you know what a great time we had in Israel! You did a great job with our group and we are thankful to have met in this lifetime to share the memories of Israel. It would be hard to pick which site was my favorite, but one of my best memories will be the fish lunch at St. Peters. When the owner came up and had us all singing Holy Ground, that was a very special God moment! The friendship and fellowship on the trip is really priceless in the book of memories! Thanks a bunch and blessings to you!

    Our group from Christ's Community Fellowship (Wichita Falls, Texas) spent November 6-15, 2018, with Mark as our guide in Israel. He is an exceptional leader with a deep well of knowledge and love for the history and future of the land, as well as being a truly gifted teacher. Our group considers him as an answer to our prayers for safety, security and resource for the trip overall. One cannot mistake his passion for the Lord and the incredible way He has redeemed us. We are forever indebted to his service and will never forget his kindness and 'unlimited energy' during our time together. All in our group give a hearty recommendation to him as a guide, brother, and friend.

    10/8/18 We have just returned from a trip to Israel with two other couples from our Church. We were part of a larger tour of about 30 total. Mark was one of three guides that we had during our 15 days. He is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful personality. He even invited us to visit his Congregation for Erev Shabbat Service. It was a highlight of our time with him. We highly recommend him as a tour guide.

    Dear Mark,
    It was nice talking to you on the phone after our arrival back home. I really thank you so much for going out of your way for our group, you are one in a million. Even though this is my second time visiting the Holy Land, you brought everything to light more than my first time. Samson and I can't wait to be back in Israel with our children to walk where our Lord Jesus Christ walked with you again.
    Keep up the good work Mark!

    Mark... "my dear friend"
    We arrived home safely! I can't thank you enough for our time with you in Israel. Although the sites and significance of being in the land of our Lord and Savior was incredible... your knowledge and expertise made the trip a once in a lifetime experience.
    I hope to make it back again but more than anything to spend time with you!
