This tour was amazing!
Zel of Israel Travel Co was absolutely wonderful - roomy vehicle and used the drive time to educate my parents and I on everything from the history to the people and politics of the past 3,000 years - all in a day. We toured Caesarea, Tel Megido, Migdal, Capernaum and ended with the Mount of Olives overlooking Jerusalem - and everything in between. What a day - what a guide!!
Great tour! We liked very much that our tour guide who is Jewish read passages from the bible relevant to the sites with dignity and respect.
True in word and deed this tour, specifically traveling with Tour Guide Jorge Cohen who paid attention to our individual needs and addressed our questions, provided a comprehensive teaching of all the sites. Jorge is an excellent ambassador for Israel tours. Highly recommend!
Absolutely awesome. Got in as much as possible in the half day we had. Guide was fantastic!
The sites were good and great to see, but the tour guide was not the best and didn and #39;t pay too much attention to the biblical facts of the tour. As well as picked up 45minutes late. I also wish the location of sermon on the mount was included since it and #39;s so close to so many of the other sites.
It was a great tour overall
Well organised and curated. Plenty of biblical places visited.... the baptism site is a little tackier than expected, but still a nice venue.
The trip to the locations Tiberias, Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee was a great experience. The Bible came alive for me to see where Jesus lived and preached. The Tour guide was very informative as we moved along from site to site explaining the areas we were visiting. Overall this was a five star rating.
Well organized tour,with a very professional guide.
Very well organized tour! The guide was very professional.I recommend this tour for every people visiting Israel!!!
Amir was great and very informative. We highly recommend him.
Nice tour. Saw a lot in one day.
Good tour with excellent guide. Well looked after. Saw all the main sites. Was expecting a larger coach rather than a minibus but a personal gripe. Other than that, would recommend.
Excellent guide very knowledgable,objective and well versed in English
Very good indeed! Our guide was nice and informative! Lea is really kind. Also, the tour is good but I would have more time in Cafarnaum for example, rather than Jordan River which has no much to offer for those who are not interested in Baptism experience. no one of our group did it! In my opinion, stopping by Mount of Beatitudes would be perfect to complete the experience.
É um passeio bem rápido, devido a distância de jerusalém. Então se for possível, o ideal é dormir na Galileia. Senti falta de um passeio de barco no mar da galileia, seria legal ter a opção só envolvendo Tibérias e Mar da Galileia para incluir o passeio de barco.
A very long day which started late due to waiting over half an hour in Tel Aviv for additional passengers. First stop at a Souvenir store in Nazareth - not what we wanted to see and spent too much time there. Then felt rushed through the other sights. Lunch was excellent. Tiberias is noted in the title of this tour but we never went there.
Fristly this is not a 'Christian' tour for the bible reading, born again Christian. The main reason why I paid 1,040.00 AUD each was that we had the opportunity to be baptised in the Jordan River, Ok, not the site where Jesus was baptised, this is in Jordan, but in the Jordan river non the less. After arriving at the baptismal site, paying for the robe, towel etc, we were told there are no pastors on site as normally there would be one on our bus tour. As we were the only 2 interested in being baptised THERE WAS NO-ONE TO BAPTISE US! This was the biggest disappointment of all. I booked the tour to start on a Saturday to see David's tomb and the last supper hall. We had been to the museum the day before. The company started the tour on Day 3 instead of day 1. Each day we had a different Jewish guide who tried to recite the script from memory. 1/2 of which was incorrect and they often got the Muslim religion mixed up with ours, i.e. the 5 books of Moses?? They all asked many questions which I answered, but when I asked them some, they couldn't answer nor where they interested. On the last day the tour stopped for lunch at a cafe but I wasn't hungry, The Muslim owner wouldn't even allow me to stand on the road outside his cafe wanting me to wait the 45 min lunch break on a corner by myself. Being moved from our hotel, I thought all the people were staying at the same hotel which would make sense, however we were the only 2 staying at their preferred hotel which was a pretty good hotel regardless and the bus still p/u others from different locations.. The whole tour was rushed with no time to reflect of Jesus's life. Total waste of money.
We had trouble with Bein Harim - usually because of their lack of communication, If you are interested, send me an email address where you would like to receive info and I will forward the email that I sent to them detailing the problems.
Very informative tour. Should not be missed when travelling the Holy Land. Our tour guide was great!
We booked this tour because of price. We saved at least 100 dollars from the price on the Cruise ship that when to the same places as we did. Each place visited was spiritual to us even though one of us is not very religious.
