Client Accolades

Ron Aroms, New Jersey (August 2015)

“I wanted to thank both of you for planning a terrific vacation and caring for us while we were there. Many, many fond memories for the entire family. I will always look back and smile.”

Joachim, San Francisco (September 2015)

Remember the first time we met about 15 years ago and you showed me the Jewish section of Paris and some other stuff? That is my second novel just published and in time for this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair. Thanks for your help!

Therese M. – Massachusetts (September, 2015)

My family has engaged the services of Rachel Kaplan and Events & Co. for the last 8 years. We have been extremely satisfied with the customized itineraries that she has designed. Rachel selects the most knowledgeable, professional and interesting guides who speak impeccable English.  I’ve been researching my family history for several years and for me it’s a treasure hunt. On this trip I hit the jackpot! With the help of our wonderful guide in Prague we were able to meet a distant cousin and discover that our Czech family was unaware that anyone immigrated to the US. In Alsace, we were again fortunate to meet a family member, with the help of another extraordinary guide from the region. And this distant cousin also had no idea that anyone left for the States. It was a wonderful visit and felt like a reunion. Thank you Rachel for making this a very special vacation for me.

Robert Kanterman, 2014

“I just wanted to follow up and thank you for arranging our vacation. We truly had a wonderful time in Paris. All of the guides were terrific, and each very different from one another, giving us a variety of perspectives of the art, history, and culture of the city. If you ever need a reference for a client, please feel free to have them contact me.”

Ericka Jacobs, London, August 2014

“Just wanted to let you know that we are wrapping up our trip – we head home tomorrow, and most of the family left today. Everyone agreed it was a great experience. There was particular praise for the guide we had yesterday on our visit to Ypres. He was incredibly knowledgeable and keen to share his enthusiasm with us. He gave us all a very thorough overview of the first World War, and much more. Thanks again for all your help, I certainly couldn’t have done it without you. If we can raise the courage to do another Bar Mitzvah reunion tour for my youngest (in 2017) I will be calling on you again!”

Ken Gershenfeld, 2013

“Thank you for putting the one day Paris trip together at the last minute. The guide was excellent and everything worked out well. My family had a great time and it was an experience they will remember for a lifetime. Thanks.”

Suri & Dave Kufeld, Great Neck, NY, 2012

“We have only the highest recommendation to offer for European Jewish Heritage Tours. Our recent family trip to Paris was immeasurably enhanced by Rachel Kaplan and her fellow professionals, who not only made us feel welcome, but whose love of the city was infectious. Our observance of kashrut and Shabbat in a foreign environment was not only made effortless by their guidance, but it afforded us further insight and appreciation of the rich Jewish life found in the City of Lights. We look forward to future memorable vacations planned in concert with European Jewish Heritage Tours.”

Ralph Levitt, 2012

“We had a great time in Europe. You chose great hotels and tour guides. Thanks for all you did for us!”

Marion Lauber, 2012

“We spent a wonderful day with Laurence in Provence. She is very nice and extremely knowledgeable – a winning combination. We had a great time in Paris and after Provence went to the Riviera for a few days – all-in-all a fantastic vacation. If I know anyone coming to France I will highly recommend your organization and a tour with Laurence.”

David E. Marlene Hier
Simon Wiesenthal Center of Tolerance

“Thank you so much for all the efforts you made to make the ANT event a huge success. Your support and organization on the evening was very much appreciated in the overwhelming number of guests and continual changes. Your calm and direct approach with solving problems is valued. Quite a number of people wanted to give very positive feedback about the party. Thank you once again for everything, it was a pleasure working together with you, and I hope we have the pleasure of working together again.”

Dr. Shimon Samuels
Director for International Relations, Simon Wiesenthal Center of Tolerance

“On behalf of the Simon Wiesenthal Center and myself, I wish to thank you for your cooperation in the success of our group’s visit last week to Paris. Your dedication and sensitivity to the finest details of the programme made all the difference. I look forward to continuing contact with you.”
