Lovely guide... We would definitely recommend taking this tour.
Jerusalem is such an interesting city and full of history and magic whilst the time spent in Bethlehem is relatively short the visit to the Church Of The Nativity was exciting when you think of the history of the region. Israel has much to see but for those interested in History or Religion Jerusalem and Bethlehem are a must.
Touring Jerusalem is an absolute must-do for anyone visiting Israel. Obviously, Bethlehem is important and interesting too, but it's definitely small potatoes compared to the big enchilada. So many others have raved about this Jerusalem that I won't waste my time trying to add to it. Definitely do this—or one of the similar Jerusalem tours.
The tour is great ! Our guide ,Ossie Kaufman was wonderful,a nice person ,with lots of explanations about all the sites.Very professional and full of knowledge.Unfortunaly,he could not acompany us in the Palestinian teritories because they have special regulations and they give you their palestinian guide which was not as professional as our main guide,Ossie.But,overall the tour is well worth it. Don't miss it !
The tour started on time and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and made our trip memorable. ......
This was a very full and rewarding day. The tour guide, Hya, explained each site and was good at allowing time for pictures and questions. I will cherish the memories visiting the churches of Jesus's birth and passion and the Via Dolorosa. Hya exhibited great knowledge, of all sites, and she is an excellent speaker. This was a very impressive tour and valuable experience.
Our guide Haya for Jerusalem was extremely knowledgeable. Definitely recommend the trip.
The guide in Bethlehem was amazing
However Ben Harim could do a better job about communicating pick up time.
Amir was a very good guide. Made the trip interesting and educating for both kids and parents.
Great tour, very interesting places to see, our guide spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable .
Excellent!! This all day tour provided a satisfying taste of Jerusalem and Bethlehem. The tour operated to schedule and provided safe, clean and efficient transportation in a van/mini-bus.
The visit to Jerusalem included an initial stop on Mount Scopus overlooking the old city to provide perspective. Once inside the city walls the tour included visits to all the quarters as well as the 'Wailing Wall' and the CHurch of the Holy Sepulcher.
The visit to Bethlehem provided an in-depth visit to the Church of the Nativity.
Our guide, Amir made all the difference. He was by far the most knowledgable tour guide I've ever had, anywhere. He was informative, outgoing, friendly, and exceptional at engaging the group and stimulating discussion and curiosity. His liberal perspective was refreshing and he encouraged the group to draw their own conclusions where no definitive answers or evidence exist, whether it be religious, political or social.
Excellent tour. Guide was on time, friendly and so knowledgeable. I do not hesitate to recommend this tour.
Jacob was wonderful. He is knowledgeable, friendly and very caring. The sites selected for the tour were great. I was picked up at my hotel and returned at the end of the tour.
I would definitely recommend that others take this tour.
Everything was well organized as expected + little more than that received, for which I'm very appreciate. Thank you.
Great tour - most efficient "history lesson" I've ever encountered. Thanks, in large, to our wildly-over qualified guide, Amir! Tremendous perspective on 4,000 years of history - in an air conditioned bus - go figure! Best, Mike Aldrich (USA)
This was a wonderful trip;well organised and very informative. The Guide in Jerusalem was excellent and gave you lots of information with suiificent humour. You need to be reasonably fit to do the tour of Jerusalem.
The Wailing Wall was breathtaking.
The trip to Bethlehem was disappointing and rushed.
I want to go back and see more of Jerusalem,
This tour is an absolute must in Israel!!! It was incredibly informative, worth every penny and Eli the tour guide was great as well! It is a long day but you get to see so much of the Old City. I would definitely recommend good walking shoes and a hat. Also, you walk through all of the markets of the Old City but you are not able to stop anywhere. You will have an opportunity to shop in Bethlehem only. This is one very minor drawback to an otherwise awesome tour.
Very good and knowledgeable guide. Good value for money.
