Jerusalem was very interesting. Going through the market to hear about the religious stories that happened there was interesting but not getting even 10 minutes to shop was very frustrating. We left Israel with most of out money. The Dead Sea was fun to swim in. Good tour but too much packed into one day.

The Dead Sea was well worth a visit. The Old city of Jerusalem was interesting, however I think we would have enjoyed it more if our guide had took us to the garden tomb instead of the church of the Sepulchre, were the Jews believe Jesus was buried. We were very interested in the biblical aspect of Jerusalem so were a little disappointed there. If you are Christian and looking for a Christian tour either state that as a request when you book, or find an agency that specialises in Christian tours. We had a Jewish tour guide in Haifa and her knowledge of the bible was fantastic, so it's a chance you take.

Amazing tour. Saw so much in one day. The guide was very informative, friendly and flexible. The small group and mini van were a real plus because we moved along in a way that everyone could agree with and we were able to fully enjoy each location. Because of our van size, we were able to park closer to the sites as well. We took plenty of pictures and enjoyed our Dead Sea swim! We also avoided the long lines!

Jerusalem was amazing from all aspects, and worth visiting in greater depth. Guide Sandy imparted a lot of info, and was truly professional. Highly recommended!

We were picked up on time. the mini bus was well maintained. Our tour guide, Micki, was very knowledgeable, passionate about her country and very funny.
We saw a lot in a relatively short time and we made it back to the port on time. It was a memorable day.

This was a great tour. There were 6 people from our ship on the tour and we were in a new Range Rover which had plenty of room. Jerusalem was very interesting and the dead sea was an added bonus. Highly recommended
