Good trip overall. It depends on the guide you get as to the level of information and the clarity. Like most organized trips, they waste a lot of time picking up people and at over priced gift shops. The restaraunts they take you to for lunch also vary in quality. The one is Bethlehem was all you can eat but in Akko was a rip off. Prices average $15-20 per person. BE AWARE on this trip..there is duplication on the Jerusalem days. You will see a lot of the same things in the morning between the Jerusalem new/old and the Jerusalem city of David, so you might get bored as we did.
WE found the tour to meet our expectations, the tour guide Daniella was exceptional, she was able to answer most all questions with details and anecdotes that captured our attention. Thanks for completing our experience of Israel on such a positive note.
Overall the trip was good. However, there is more room for improvement in terms of the logistics and punctuality when it comes to pick up people from the hotels. They did not followed the itinerary, when i was picked up and transferred to my tour bus instead of starting with Day 1 of the itinerary, We started with Day 4. I wasn't informed until of the changes until later on the day. The tour company should provide better communication to the customers to avoid confusion and annoyance.
Very good tour. It is so much better for first time traveler to the area to let someone else do the driving, and to have a knowledgeable guide at the same time.
The pick up was about 50 minutes late but the trip was fully booked and the traffic in Jerusalem was very busy. Worth the wait - the north of Israel is very green and the scenery stunning. Nazareth is a very pretty town. Nice lunch by the shores of the sea of galilee. The river Jordan was very picturesque and it was fascinating watching the people being baptised. The guide was very knowledgeable. All in all excellent trip
It was a great tour, our guide was fantastic, spoke excellent English and Spanish, was extremely knowledgeable about the sites and history both from a religious and non-religious perspective. Highly recommend the tour. The only caveat is that for lunch, you are taken to one restaurant that caters to tour buses and doesn't give you much choice, its a set menu at a set price. Some of the other people on the tour brought food of their own which is a good option. Also, there is not washroom on the bus, so make sure you use the facilities at the last site (Jordan river) or else you'll be waiting a while!
Good attention from the staff
I had great time on this trip and the guide was awesome.
I did not like the fact that my name was not included in any group even after phone call to confirm if all was in order, as a result I had to wait for approximately an hour and had to be temporarily accommodated to another group so that I could join my group which had already departed.
Our guide could have shortened his stories a tad but overall he did a good job and we covered a lot of ground. I was baptized in the River Jordan on the last stop of the day. That was really a joyful experience.
Had a good time. Haya, our guide was very well prepared and answered any questions.
Great tour the only downside was the restaurant as there was no other place to eat and the prices were expensive relative to Tel Aviv.
Another great trip. Don't hesitate. The tour guide had fascinating stories to tell us of the history and the people. The places are wonderful to see
Wonderful tour, and great tour guide.
An amazing day trip. Loved everything, there was so much to take in, the churches so much to see. Had a nice lunch at the sea of Galelii. The beautiful River Jordan! this will always be with me, photos do not capture the atmosphere - very emotional. Beautiful biblicle place.
Trip was good, well organized. We've already recommended it to our friends.
