Awesome experience! Everyting we were looking for. Jerusalem was an amazing city and our tour guide showed us everyting we wanted to see. Great stops for shopping and lunch too. On the way to the Dead Sea we stopped and took a short camel ride! We floated in the Dead Sea and put the mud all over our bodies. Our skin still feels soft a wee later. This was the perfect tour for us!
We were picked up at 7am, and taken to the meeting site...We boarded the Jerusalem Dead Sea tour...we brought snacks and bottle water for the road trip,(its a long day, highly recomend it..) our tour guide was very informative and nice...the holy city is amazing a must see, before the dead sea we stopped at a rest stop to buy food and water and souvenirs, then to the dead sea...also amazing, wish we could have spent more time there enjoying the public beach....we had a great time..we love VIATOR..thank you for taking good care of us.....Jimmy, Becky, and Donna from Arizona, USA.....
The tour guides were excellent and though I thought the bus changing was a bit excessive, it was well organized! The bus even dropped me off at the airport after my trip which was just awesome and I'm so appreciative for this! I would recommend this trip to anyone travelling to Israel and hope that I'm able to go back to Israel and see more of this stunning country! :)
Seems almost impossible to get through so much history in one morning! A comprehensive introduction to old Jerusalem with all the must see sights, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Wailing/Western Wall (where there is time to pray and place a wish). In the afternoon you get a couple of hours at the Dead Sea, which is plenty of time. Lunch was a traditional stuffed pitta bread with a drink of your choice for a reasonable 40 Shekels. There was a short compulsory stop at a gift shop, but zero pressure and there were things worth buying. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and humourous. Recommended.
It was a very nice and interesting tour. The lunch was not very good..
Good tour. The tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. My main (but small) criticism is that the tour felt so packed that it was sometimes difficult to fully experience parts of the tour (e.g., stations of the cross). Other than that, very good.
Very good service, guide was very knowledgeable and looked after everyone well. We were very unlucky to have bad weather which stopped us visiting the Dead Sea. However the tour guide was very good at explaining and rearranging the day so we got to see Bethlehem instead which was very worthwhile.
First half of the day was excellent. Tour guide was very knowledgable, friendly and funny. Really enjoyed this part of the day. When we split up and went to the Dead Sea - this was a little disappointing. The guide was more of a driver and just said - "Ok see you back here in 2 hours". Was at the Dead Sea for too long.
The Dead Sea was amazing but I felt like we were rushed through Jerusalem. The guides was very rude to some of the other guests.
Organisation and passge of information to tourists at start of day - very poor. Knowledge of guide - excellent. During day delays caused by tourists not being back at bus at time requested. This caused the rest of of group to wait and the guide had to go looking for the late ones repeatedly.
The worst experience ever. The guide in Jerusalem was trying to get rid if us as quickly as she could. I think her name was Hyla. Speaking very fast, not going into any details, literally running through the sites. I had to book a different tour for the next day in order to learn smth. Waste of $$$.
