    Best ever active Tours!! Thanks again Jack and Active World Journeys for the trip a lifetime in the Holy Land of Israel, Palestine and Jordan. We loved Cuba, especially the people – and Egypt was so fascinating.

    I have had the pleasure of attending 3 trips with our primary go to guy Jack Witt. If someone had ever told me I would travel to the Middle East and Cuba I would have said no way! But the people Jack hires to be our guides have been so kind, caring, informative. I have never felt any fear. These 3 trips have been some of the best in my life, but my sister is forever going to all different places in the world and I have been so lucky to accompany her. I’m really interested in where my next adventure (hopefully with Jack Witt at the helm) will take me. I have also met so many wonderful people on these trips and can’t wait to travel with them again.
