6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
One previous traveler wrote: "I can't say enough about Dr. DeLancey's leadership and insights he offers on his tours. Each day was so rich with natural beauty, historical "wow's" and biblical insight. There was adventure that satiated my boyhood desire to be Indiana Jones. There were moments where I felt that God was literally going to speak from the clouds. The scholarly richness yet personal touch that Pastor John offered each day was amazing. John worked beautifully with his Jordanian and Israeli colleagues to create moments of education that were artistically inspiring. When you add in the richness of Pastor John's leadership, humor, and historical insight I must say it was a tremendous bargain. I feel blessed to have chosen John to be my guide. As one independent tour operator said to me at the airport, 'if you were with John DeLancy – you had the very best. He is in the top class of Israel guides.' She is right."
