can anyone recommend a local Israel agency that can help build/execute a cultural program for visiting Israel?
Something like http://www.gate1travel.com/israel-travel/israel-escorted-15dclaileth13.aspx just without visits to "perfume factories" and I can probably manage hotels on my own.
In short - looking for tour agency I can rely on and one that doesnt charge an arm and a leg.

Thank you

not sure why your link isnt working for me, but this one is good

http://www.groupon.co.il/deals/jerusalem-iw/LaPavee-006C000000nP9q5IAC/35514313?context=sold-out&treatment=similar-category&bcsp=uBdqgANLy-uoaJQoyjTawA

i wonder what this means:
**שדרוג נוסף לספיישל גורמה כפי יכולתך, בתוספת תשלום מול בית העסק:

בתוספת של 69 ₪ לאדם בלבד לרוכשי הארוחה ב-219 ₪
בתוספת 45 ₪ בלבד לאדם לרוכשי הארוחה ב-249 ₪

340 for all you can eat for two? seems like a good deal

Really? Food was amazing, service was great...what don't you like? We had salmon that wasn't good and they just took it off the bill but everything else was very good
