Vehicle was excellent and the guide was extremely knowledgeable and articulate.
Although it was extremely hot in August, I enjoyed this tour. We also went to the Jordan River which was simply serene and beautiful. Our tour guide Yael spoke English, Spanish, and Hebrew. We ate at St Peter and #39;s Restaurant (bring some cash for the food and also for water, especially for water!).
The tour was well organized with sufficient time at each of the sights. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly and effective. Would recommend this trip.
The tour is packed with lots of cool stuff.. But it is perfectly balanced, a city like Nazareth and the quiet shores of the Sea of Galilee.. It's a nice tour!
I had the pleasure of having Rami as my tourguide... He knows an awful lot and is also a fun guy. He told us many things and when people had questions bit offtrack than he answered them as well with charm.
Nice tour, but if you only have one day in Tel Aviv, I would rather take the Cesarea-Haifa-Rosha Hanikra tour. The tour agency is reliable. Excellent service.
The tour was good - Yael was an upbeat and fun tour guide. We enjoyed it. The tour definitely ran long, as they tend to do it is usually 12 hours from hotel pick up to hotel drop off - we did 4 tours and no matter how near or far they were, it usually hit about 12 hours, and we were on a small bus, but otherwise comfortable. Yael did a great job of explaining everything, keeping the group together, and guiding us safely. I wish we had more time to spend at Yardenit, the baptismal site, as with the lines we had to rush a lot, and perhaps less time at all of the churches for example, the church of multiplication - which I believe was the 4th church we visited that day?. The town of Jesus, where Peter was from was truly fantastic, and a great treat! I don't think it is particularly fair to say this tour includes Tiberias, as we just drove through the town, but it seems there actually isn't much to do there anyway, and perhaps they mean they around the area of Tiberias...like Capernaum. I also wish lunch had been earlier I think it was around 2pm when we got to the restaurant, which was chaotic and unorganized due to the number of tour groups there all at once, but the food was delicious. We spent a long time trying to pay which ate into the time we could have had dipping out feet into the Sea of Galilee. I also didn't love that they take you to shop at only one souvenir shop that is approved by the ministry of tourism, where they do a pitch for you. We spent 80 USD on a Jerusalem cross necklace that they of course said they were the only place that carried, but after this tour, I saw those things in so many other shops in other cities, so that left sort of a bad taste in my mouth. It was by far the most expensive souvenir we bought on the whole trip. Overall we had a nice time. Thank you Yael!
The tour guide could have been a little bit more enthusiatic and funny... maybe get us a bit more involved. Lunch was extremely expensive and the only place around. It was alright, could have been better.
Great guide, great tour. Really efficient and good information. Loved our guide!
Note that the baptism tends to be solo you need to go with a group with a pastor to have someone else do the baptism for you. However, the experience is great!
Also that lunch isn't included!
Very good tour and guide. Bus driver drove like a maniac, that was a bit scary at times. Otherwise it was perfect!
excellent trip, our tour guide Eyal was very good,
our guide Rami was funny and engaging. He was always available to answer questions.
Our guide was fun and informative, however I was extremely disappointed that NO ONE said anything about needing to rent an outfit at the Jordan River in order to get baptized. The scenery, etc. was beautiful, but it felt like just another tourist trap and you didn't get to spend a lot of time there to explore the river, etc.
We enjoyed eating fresh fish in Galilee .Enjoyed the mango,olive banana and cotton orchards along the way to Nazareth.
The guide was nice, and told us a lot of information. For this trip it worth the money. I recommend for everybody.
Tour itself was great and tour guide is also very good and knowledgeable however, waiting time to be picked up at hotel was more than 30 minutes and the logistic in consolidating people with different bus/tour and lunch simple a waste of time. Bus was so cramped, I am 6 foot 1, wasn't comfortable at all.
Was unable to take this trip
This was the best trip of all :.Thanks to Lea the excellent tour guide.
I got everything I needed out of it. well informed and was interesting.
I really enjoyed the tour. My tour guide was great and did an excellent job.
Highly recommended trip. Everything was very well organized and our guide was nice and knowledgeable. We have discovered a lot of other amazing places in addition to those advertised in the description. It would be nice however, to check with the tourists upfront whether they wish to spend time shopping in Nazareth on such a rich, insightful tour.
Our tour guide Amir was like a walking encyclopedia. I took copious notes on the information he provided to us. He helped me develop an appreciation for what we saw but also for the historical context of it.
Great guide! The food at the Galilee lake shore was not good, it was dry and probably cooKed well ahead of our arrival. The salad bar was very good. The vehicles need better air conditioning, it was very hot and it seemed like it could not keep up with the outside heat. The baptism site does not offer a minister, so dip yourself. Also the site was also a bit of a tourist trap, squeezing out money whenever possible.
Overall a very good tour, with an ideal itinerary. The guide was very good at describing sights etc but, poor with organisation and scheduling of the itinerary. People turned up late repeatedly, nothing was said or done, so the rest of us had to wait and wait. I arrived early for the tour and wasn't even contacted by the guide to inform me of pick up times. A note was left with the front desk at the hotel. had I not gone to find out about this at the front desk, I wouldn't have known the schedule. Indeed, the guide never even learned people's names. This surprised me greatly, comparing it to other tours I have been on.
However, the tour included a lot of wonderful places and this part was carried out well.
I would recommend this tour.
Lot of nice places, tour guide more joker. Tell basic info. Miss stories behind. During time of travel by bus no info about the country etc. Lunch in cafeteria of their choice, too expensive for what they offer.
Recommed because good opportunity to see a lot of places outside Tel Aviv. Just to be more lucky for better guide next time.
United States of ...
We had a great time with Yael.
