"I have worked with Marlies for almost 20 years. She books hotels, sites, restaurants, and much more for all my clients. Many times I challenged her with all kinds of requests for my tourists and she always comes through. I find her to be dependable, meticulous, honest and always looking out for my interests. Most of all I find Marlies to be very pleasant to work with."

I have known and worked with Marlies for over 25 years. From all of the tour operators I have met over the years she has given me the most professional service. I always received immediate replies, whenever I needed help or just ask a question, she would always be there to answer, whether during office hours or from her home. Warmly recommended!

To whom it may concern,

I have been working directly with Marlies for the past 6 years.

She has always been exceptionally nice and extremely efficient with all my requests. It never takes more than several hours and sometimes quicker for a response. Her knowledge and experience in the Israeli tourism industry is fantastic and I would highly recommend her to others.
