It was perfect in my case to finish my tour of the Holy Land. Thanks to the guide Yoni Dinur, willing to resolve concerns. Suggestion: It is important to include in the tour file that it ends at Mary's tomb and that from there we must return on our behalf and that the entrances to the Garden of Gethsemane and the chapel of the assumption are not included in the cost.
If you have a few days in Jerusalem I would highly recommend this tour. It explains the history but also the future, e.g. the coming of the Messiah from a Jewish, Christian and Muslim theological perspective. Guide was very good and prompt.
This was a great tour to start a visit to Jerusalem. Our guide, Paul, was Israeli but very well versed in the 3 religions that call Jerusalem sacred. For those who are concerned about the walking, the tour started at the top of the Mount of Olives and walked downhill all the way. The only challenge was getting back to West Jerusalem where we stayed. Uber or Gett in Israel is the best app to have. Taxi drivers do rip off tourists!
The Jerusalem Three Religions Mount of Olives Walking Tour was excellent. Our guide (Liran) was very knowledgeable, engaging, and attentive. As a teacher, I appreciated his approach. He started the tour by having us sit in a shaded place and then he shared a visual timeline of Jerusalem, as well, as an illustrated book that showed the various eras and physical changes to Jerusalem. We had a family from Brazil with us. Only one of them was a fluent English speaker. He asked Liran if it would be distracting for him to translate for the rest of the family as he spoke. Liran said that it would be no trouble at all, and he was very careful to be sure that this man had time to translate as we went along. Liran was very patient and answered all my questions, and I learned so much. He was very enthusiastic about his subject matter, and I honestly think it was the best tour I have ever been on. Thank you Liran!
This was an excellent way to start touring Jerusalem because it provides an really helpful overview of the Old City. Our guide, Matthew, was very well informed and had lots of great tips. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.
Tthis was a great tour with a knowledgeable commentary on the religious history and lives of the various chuches and shrines on Mount of Olives. Our guide was great, giving knowledge with humor. He did a great job comparing and contrasting the three religions - - Christian including Orthodox, Judaism, and Islam. Highly recommended.
GARY was an amazing guide. I'm an academic and was pleasantly surprised by his knowledge and accessible tour for everyone on the group. He quickly learned everyone's names and general interests/backgrounds and provided a very informative and impartial tour. Excellent experience.
