    This video is exceptionally well done, very professional! Thank you for taking the time put it together — it gives a great feel for what the tour was like. It is also inspiring to see how genuinely happy Dr. Mazar was to give this tour. We all appreciate it very much!

    That was such an awesome tour! And this was a great video summary of it. For those who weren’t there, Dr. Mazar gave us about 4 hours of her time on the tour–splendid!!!

    What a great opportunity for the Jerusalem Feast attendees to tour the various archaeological dig sites that the AICF has helped to uncover!

    Thanks to Dr. Mazar for taking the time to offer this very special guided tour! Definitely the next best thing to being there in person!

    Thanks for the video. I see some familiar faces. How awesome to go to the Feast in Jerusalem. I would love to go on the tour one day. Walking through the pages of the bible would be so exciting and interesting, talk about having the vision right in front of you, I bet that helps in keeping your focus where it needs to be. Again Awesome and thanks.
