Traveler Tips


Need to have good shoes as there is a lot of walking and up and down.
IF it is summer, it will be tiring for aged folks, but off season should be good.
Be advised - there is no getting around a LOT of stair-climbing and crowds in Jerusalem!

Unforgettable glimpse into the Holy City
Debbie, Feb 2020
We travel frequently and this was the best tour we’ve been on! I can’t say enough about our guide, Phil. He made the story of Jerusalem come alive. He was so passionate and engaging. Do not miss this tour and try to get Phil as your guide. After the tour, we were so much more invested in finding out more about the history of the Abrahamic religions.
What a positive experience!

Absolutely excellent. Weather wise, it was a horrible day. Freezing and last 2 hours were freezing and rain. But the guide, Avi, was charming, knowledgeable, kind, clear spoken, excellent story teller.... Can't say enough.

Natalia_S, Jan 2020
Great guide and good route giving an overview of the main sights of the old town and lots of inspiration for exploring the surrondings
Great Walk of the old City
Sanjiv_P, Jan 2020
Right from start of the walk, things were quite orderly and explanations were excellent. With knowledgeable guides, roaming such holy cities are very enriching.
Very Informative
Christopher_F, Jan 2020
The tour was very informative and I appreciate that our guide Shimon gave us a comprehensive tour of Jerusalem and how important it is to all three monotheistic religions. The tour group was a bit too large for me but it was still intimate enough to learn and take in the Holy Land.
Second time doing this tour and it is still fantastic.
Boris G, Jan 2020
This is my second time doing this tour and it is still fantastic. I did this tour by myself years ago and now did the tour with my family. I loved it then and I loved it now. The tour was informative and entertaining. Anna the tour guide was amazing. She brought props to help illustrate the points she was making. Highly recommended.
Good tour - Exceptional Guide "Ornayer"
Marie_P, Jan 2020
PERECT introduction tour to Jerusalem. Easy location to meet the tour. Our guide was interesting - Talked the right amount - knew how to move around crowds Constructive criticism: Group needs to be under 25, Guide needs to have poll with a Red Flag
An entertaining and informative tour
Miika_R, Jan 2020
We had Anna as a guide, and she really was excellent at her job! The tour covered well the city's history and the most important sights. We had a great day, learned a lot and had unforgettable experiences, including a visit to the Wailing wall (not just looking from a distance, but actually going to the wall), walking the Via Dolorosa and standing at the Temple Mount between the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock. I really recommend this tour as a way to get to know the Old City of Jerusalem!
Great Orna!
andrea_c, Dec 2019
Orna went above and beyond and explained very well. She was easy to understand and very interesting.
Interesting and well-paced
Ido_R, Dec 2019
We had Mr. Omer Cohen as our guide, and he was great. He had expansive knowledge of the Old City and the impact of the three religions on Jerusalem. He brought a 3-ring binder with maps, diagrams, photos etc. for help in explaining, which was very informative. He had a good sense of humor, too! Be advised - there is no getting around a LOT of stair-climbing and crowds in Jerusalem! But the tour was well-paced, and the optional lunch at a great hummus restaurant was reasonably priced and delicious. We recommend!
Our tour with Alex
