We had a great time, tour guide were nice, overall a great experience !
The tour of the Old City, Masada and Bethlehem were great. Our tour guide with Bein Harim (his name is Aharon Yahav) did a fantastic job. HOWEVER, I sent a email to firstname.lastname@example.org on October 8 (enquiry #4082080) and a follow up email on October 13 (enquiry # 4092121) about an issue that needs to be resolved. You can call me at 480-239-6721. Thank you, Jeffrey Sloan
Good tour of Jerusalem. Well balanced with Old City and the other sites (Masada, Dead Sea). Really enjoyed the Old City experience, Masada was incredible, and Dead Sea was great to float around in. Not as much to see in Bethlehem. This was my least favorite portion. Tour guides were good. Only downside was the hotel which was very poor quality. Would recommend booking on your own.
Our tour guide to Old Jerusalem lost 2 people at our first stop. He told them to meet us at a place in 15 minutes. Then he stood right where he was and talked for 20 minutes. He would go very long distances and/or leave without checking to make sure we were all with him. The lost ones eventually caught up with us, but it was not due to the guide's efforts....he seemed quite disinterested in their well being. Overall, the Bien Harim morning was pretty disorganized and chaotic.
Many parts were fabulous-Jerusalem with the Wailing Wall etc, and the trip to the Dead Sea and Masada.--and a great guide-Osi
However we were promised a visit to the Milk Grotto and Shepherds Fields and only went to the Church of the Nativity and a gift shop! We stood in line for over an hour in the church and this time could have been used for touring. This was very disappointing. I asked our guide and he assured me that extra places were only included in the morning tour.
I signed up and paid for everything. I am not sure I will use you again
