“We travel a lot so for us to say that this trip with Bountiful Travel is our favorite speaks volumes about the credibility of Dave Hadlock and the people he hires as additional guides. It’s the who’s who of fun and talented people. I’ve heard several of them lecture. He is picky and chooses meticulously who he brings as guides so the quality of the tours is consistent. We learned so much about the scriptures we never knew. Dave has a unique teaching style that helps you think outside the box. It is truly inspiring. We also loved Hank Smith’s teaching style. We feel this trip with Bountiful Travel has changed us for the better and has helped us to understand the scriptures in a new way. The people you are with, the food, hotels, and activities are all unforgettable. We loved the instruction we received and could have sat at their feet and listened for days. Thank you Bountiful Travel, if there was more than 5 stars you would easily get our vote. We’ll see you again on another trip.”

“My wife and I just returned from the Mediterranean/Israel cruise with Dave and Donald Perry. IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE OF OUR LIVES. The other members of the group are now our great friends. Dave and Don were wonderful cruise directors. We learned SO much about the gospel especially the Savior.”

“Thanks so much for a wonderful, uplifting cruise. We really enjoyed all the excursions. Our time in Israel was very special. We felt the spirit on many occasions. We learned a lot during our cruise classes…We have cruised several times before and  been with other LDS companies, but this trip has been a favorite. Thank you again for all you planning and work”.

“It was an awesome trip. Yair and Mahmoud were great. The time of year, the weather, no crowds, Yom Kippur, it was all perfect. I really enjoyed your insights and thoughts on the scriptures. It has fired me up to learn more. We definitely want to do your trip in the future to Greece and the travels of Paul. ”

“Thank you for an amazing trip.  I cannot tell you how much you opened up the scriptures to me.  I have always loved them but now my approach is so much different.  Thanks to you I love looking for parallels.   Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I hope we can travel with you again.  I have started telling all my friends that if they ever travel to Israel they should go with you.”

“Thank you, David, for the memorable tour.  We loved the whole experience (never to be forgotten).  We loved the Savior before, but that love and understanding and appreciation of Him has deepened and expanded in beautiful ways.   We loved your insights and the added light as we contemplated the scriptures along the way. The tour was so well organized, with everything planned out in detail.  It was so nice to be able to sit back and take it all in and not worry about a thing.  The icing on the cake was the group we went with–such delightful and fun people.  Thanks again for such a meaningful and life-changing experience.”

“Thank you so much for the unforgettable experience we had while on our vacation with Bountiful Travel. Often when we return home from a trip we think about the experiences we had for a little while but then it becomes a distant memory as we return to regular activities. But we are still thinking and talking about the experiences we had on our Book of Mormon Cruise (January 17, 2017). We loved the “Sea Day Lectures” that you taught! Thank you for sharing the power point presentations with us so we can continue to reflect and ponder upon those things we learned. We loved every shore excursion! Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and we had so much fun while learning. Thank you for arranging top quality tours!We are extremely pleased with every aspect of our vacation from Bountiful Travel. Dave, thank you so much for all you did to make it an amazing experience!”

“Just got back from the Book of Mormon Cruise.  Loved it!   Hard to say if we enjoyed the excursions or the lectures more.  Both were great.  We got a lot of bang for our buck.  Have you hugged a sloth?  Anything is possible on this tour.  Dave always made sure we were where we needed to be when we needed to be there.  The lectures gave us so much to think about and follow up on. Thanks Bountiful Travel.”
01/17 JE & KE

“Thank you Dave!  We are still basking in the glow of one of the best vacations we have ever had!  We loved every minute, the ship, the food, the excursions, the people and the lectures. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and just really enjoyed ourselves.  Thank you for all your hard work and care.  We look forward to traveling with you again soon!”

“Hi Dave – To say our tour to Israel was a once in a lifetime experience would be short changing it!  It was wonderful and your expertise of the scriptures made it even more special.”

“We just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful education week at sea presentations.  They enriched our experience of the Holy Land.  We were impressed with your lovely teaching manner.  You have inspired us to look at the scriptures differently.We hope to travel again with you.”

“I was very impressed with how well organized this trip was. Del and Sherrie Clark were excellent guides and tied in the gospel with the sites in such a way that I will never forget. The arranged guide from Israel ‘Adi Israel’ was also excellent as he tied in the Jewish culture and perspectives very well with great knowledge of the history.  I cannot speak enough of how great this trip was and would have to recommend bountiful travel to everyone. Thanks again for such a great trip and such excellent guides.”

“We just returned from a fantastic tour of Israel under the expert direction of Dave Hadlock. This has been one of the most incredible travel experiences of our lives. Every day was expertly planned to capitalize on the rich variety of sites including historical, anthropological and spiritual significance. The pace was rapid, but measured allowing ample opportunities for reflection, exploration and learning. His Israeli guide Allen was very entertaining and knowledgeable providing background on culture and history, while Dave offered a unique spiritual insight at each location. His mastery of the scriptures, and expert teaching style lent a unique perspective to this experience. We highly recommend Bountiful Travel.”
05/16 Dan and Ann Robins

“Hi Dave, We just wanted to say thanks again for a WONDERFUL experience with you in Israel. Each day was a new highlight. We always felt safe, comfortable and organized. Not only did we learn about the areas we visited but also felt it in a special way with your excellent way of teaching the scriptures along with your great spirit and testimony. We highly recommend your tours to anyone wanting an experience where they are very uplifted all the way through the tour and afterwards. Thanks again Dave.”
05/16 Brent & Anne Pierce

“We can’t believe that it has been just over a week since we were in Israel, and we are already wanting to go back. The trip was great and well worth the cost. We were amazed at everything we got for that price. Dave really packed a lot of value in this tour. The hotels, the bus and driver, and especially the Israeli guide Allen were all superb, making this a most memorable trip. We would recommend this tour to any and all, and we are already talking about taking another tour with Bountiful Travel in the future.”
John & Cathy McLaughlin 4/16

“We had a great tour in April of 2016.  David Hadlock, our tour guide is an excellent teacher, avoids over intellectualizing but simply and effectively guides discussions to a deeper understanding of the doctrines and events, careful to  invite comments and insights from the group.  He gives credit to other guides and scholars and notes when he is giving his own opinion.  Most importantly he will occasionally simply say “I don’t know.”  Wow!  I  enjoyed the humble and polite way he handled the expertise in our group.  David clearly knows the scriptures but did not make our reference finding overly complex or convoluted.  His relaxed calm pacing makes what could be difficult, seem easy and natural.  He has empathy for the needs of each individual in the group, modulating the pace, seeking seating in the shade, matching venues with the best time of day, and providing ample restroom breaks. His instructions are clear, previewing what we will see and what we need to take. He often demonstrated agility in revising plans to accommodate weather or traffic.  I enjoyed his playful manor, positive approach, and good humor.  David clearly enjoys his work and that joy is felt by the group.  I strongly recommend his Holy Land Tour.”
David Farnsworth 4/16

“We loved our time in Israel and Jordan. Dave your insight to scriptures and history was inspiring. Your dedication and personal attention to each member of the group helped to promote a very cohesive group. Lasting friendships were made and a greater understanding of and love for the gospel were achieved. We look forward to joining you again to experience another tour. Thanks!”
JD 4/16

“Dave’s experience with the scriptures, Israel, and his flexible personality made this trip memorable.  Thirty-four years ago I lived in Israel so I had an idea of what are the most important sites to view.  I was impressed with what Dave selected for the tour.  The accommodations and food were excellent.  My husband loved our cottages with a view of the Sea of Galilee.  The Israeli guide was knowledgeable on historical sites and current customs.  Dave prepared scripturally for each site and was focused on the group having  spiritual experiences.  There are a lot of tours happening concurrently in Israel, and it’s important that your guide be flexible enough to change and adjust plans.  Dave did this for our group.”

Gary & Rebecca Boren 4/16

“Dave, I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Israel last week! It was an amazing experience. The tour was well planned and I loved the variety! I also especially appreciated Allen (Israel Guide). What a fantastic guide. He was amazingly knowledgeable, patient, and energetic. I truly believe he must be super human–he never seemed to get tired! I can’t see how you could top him as a tour guide. Thank you for the wonderful scriptural insights.”

MM 4/16

“A day hasn’t gone by that I have not reflected back on this Awesome Adventure! My life and testimony has been truly enriched by this experience and by the individuals in our group. The scriptures are more vibrant now.

We have many good memories and a far better understanding of the history of the area and the teachings of our Saviour, I believe we were lucky to have chosen your tour, we had a ball.

EE 6/14

“I was on your June Israel/Petra tour.  I just wanted you to know that I think about that trip almost every day.  I have been making my way through the Old Testament for about 3 years now (slowly, I know), and I repeatedly feel so grateful for all that I had read prior to our trip, and for all the insight our trip provided as I continue to study.  I so appreciate the many insights you shared with us that have enriched my study and my testimony. I also love how my new understanding of the geography there helps me better understand scripture.  Amazing!  Thank you, thank you!”

“I just want to thank you for the most wonderful experience ever! I have always wanted to go on a Book of Mormon tour. You did a fantastic job of everything”

We have been on other tours in the past. This particular one to Israel was very enjoyable! Our knowledge and testimony of the Lord, Jesus Christ has been enhanced greatly because of all that you shared with us. You have a special spirit and as you taught us from the scriptures at the various locations, we certainly felt that our time was well spent.”
