We loved the excursion through Viator. We had a small group - 16, which in such a crowded place, was a total Blessing! We set eyes on Jerusalem for the 1st time, and we were overwhelmed with wonder at a place we had only imagined for so long. We had a lovely, energetic, knowledgeable guide in Abbey who made these places shine. We reminisce about our trip there almost everyday since returning home. We can't say enough nice things about a gracious, capable guide and a small group tour that Viator provides.
We were very pleased with our guide. He was our guide for three days.
Let me say first that we really had a great tour guide Micky, this is a long day but well worth the experience, if you book this tour make sure you try to get Micky. We had 16 on our tour where as people who booked boat cruise tours had 50, we went to more places maybe due to our smaller numbers. A greaat tour made even better with Micky
Abbey was our guide
She was extremely knowledgable about Israel
we were able to see Nazareth, Month Olives, the Whaling wall
visit the churches
yet have time for shopping and lunch
just be prepared for a walking tour on cobbled stones
would not recommend this tour for anyone unable to walk long distance
I will recommend Viator tours
The bus was small rather than the big buses with a good driver
This way we did not waste time with a huge no. of tourists
nobody got lost, a way to meet new friends
price was reasonable
Sandy the tour guide provided a wonderful, educational experience. The transfer to Bethlehem was interesting but we never felt unsafe. One day is not enough to take everything the area has to offer but it was a good overview if your time is limited! They picked us up on time, the van was comfortable, and they answered our questions.

This is a fast paced tour. Seeing all the traditional sites in a very.crowded city. We had a great tour guide, Mickey, she kept us moving along.
I did hear some other folks did not have a good guide, with the same company. I am not sure how to make sure you get a good guide,
They make a difference in your day. Be prepared to walk quickly and keep up with the group, Our tour was very good. You wish you could slow down and enjoy everything more, but when you are on a short time frame visit, this is what you get, wear good shoes for uneven cobblestones,
This was a fantastic excursion. We were in Jerusalem during Holy Week so there were many people there but we were able to see most of the main attractions. I wish we could have spent another day in Jerusalem as there is so much to see.
Excellent trip, tour guide, and amazing excursion. Do not book during Passover/Easter too many people and site closures.
Doron, our guide and the driver, were punctual. They met us outside of immigration after we got off the ship. The day was fabulous and we learned a lot about this historic city. Busy day as it was Holy Thursday, but we were able to navigate to all sites with ease. Bethlehem was special and we felt safe with the tour
Bonnie was the tour guide and she took on our journey back in time. She was a wonderful historian.
Excellent tour. However, there is so much to see that even at our fast pace we needed more time to spend in old Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Miki, our guide, was very informative and we would recommend her again. We decided that if we return to Jerusalem, we would fly in and stay downtown Jerusalem to avoid the long drive to and from the Ashdod port.
It really was a full day trip. Amazing sites, beautiful landscape. A truly memorable trip.
Excellent tour host. Saw a lot and host was very informative and knowledgeable
Sandy was an excellent teacher, story teller tour guide. For a first timer I enjoyed everything about this tour. He was easy to find before the tour right off the ship. He was there early and was good at communicating and keeping track of everyone.
Great tour and our tour guide was so informative and full of information. No complaints.

We were able to see the Mount of Olives, the Garden of Gethsemane, Bethlehem, the Old City including all of the major sites and the Western Wall. Couldn't believe we did all of it in one day. One tour guide commented that we have had an appetizer of Jerusalem, now we need to schedule 7-10 days to really see it. I believe that is true. We had a good overview, but you can only see so much in 1 day.
The itinerary was excellent and the guide did a really good job helping us take advantage of the time we had and to maximize our experience. It was wonderful!
Very good and enjoyable trip. Mina was an excellent guide with a depth of knowledge of Israel and Jerusalem. The trip went very smoothly , from the pick up at Ashod dock to the return to Ashod. The small number 16 on the excursion was also good.
The start was shaky. IDing the bus/group took to long and the initial bus used couldnt go faster than 20mph even on their highways. Passengers demanded bus pull off road and be replaced which was done but this whole process took close to 1-1/2 hours. Tour wasnt shorted, we just got back to the ship very late. Tour itself was very well done. Saw most of the key sites and the experience was very nice. The guide was very well informed. Would repeat.
If you were raised in the Christian faith, you've heard of these places since your infancy. A very interesting tour, that will take you through both Israel and the Palestinian Authority aka West Bank areas. You will hear plenty about the influence of the Arab and Christian minorities. The tour is fast-paced, and won't leave you much time to see the local culture. On the other hand, you will see the parts of Jerusalem where Jesus spent his last days and Bethlehem where he was born -- and if Mickey is your guide you will hear both the Biblical accounts and a rational Jewish account of the life and times of Jesus.
Our guide was very knowledgeable. Good driver who managed to get us close to the centre.
