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.

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.
