Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the 2-Day Best of Israel Tour: Old Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Masada & the Dead Sea. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Masada and the Dead Sea were stunning and our tour guide was knowledgeable, classy, and experienced. She did a great job bringing it all together.
As for Jerusalem, unbelievable tour guide Amir Call Or. His charisma, sense of humor and vast amounts of knowledge were humbling and enriching at the same time. He helped me realize how much more there is to see about this amazing country where so much of world's history was made. I highly recommend the tour, which while fast paced you can't pretend to cover a good amount of Jerusalem in a day without unfortunately having to rush, and a tour guide that runs a tight ship, it gives you a great tease/taste of such a historical city. And Amir made it so much more interesting and stimulating.
It was absolutely fantastic, guides were great and tour small enough to enjoy with the guide, would recommend to anyone, and will probably use them again for a different tour of Israel
We had a great time, tour guide were nice, overall a great experience !
Day One tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem was great with excellent guides in both places.
Day Two going to Masada and the Dead Sea was interesting but the tour leader was poor! She catered
to the Spanish speaking people, which only made up 1/4 of the bus. The worst part was that in the
Cable car she pushed one of our group aside to make room for one of her Spanish friends. My opinion
Is that she is not fit to lead tours.
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
Tour guides seemed knowledgeable but were trying to make us but from the stores they got some sort of kick back from
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
