"Marc's depth of knowledge is awesome and his enthusiasm is incomparable. He brought Jewish history alive and introduced us to so many great Jewish scholars!"
- Eudice Greenfield
"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to learn about the  Jewish history of Sfarad in the company of such extraordinary people. I think it is important for Ashkenazim to explore Sephardi history in order to understand where our fellow Jews are coming from.  It was truly elucidating. Somehow one can read about it all day long, but to be there is something else, something much deeper."
- Ellen Jaffe, Jerusalem, Israel
"We looked for a kosher tour, and received much more--a spiritually uplifing experience that deepened our understanding of and appreciation for our Jewish heritage."
- Sam and Susan Joffe, Merrick, New York
