Stories from the Bible came alive as our awesome guide, Ami, shared the history of his country as we drove to Jerusalem. We were spoiled from pickup at our hotel in the morning to drop off later that day at our beautiful, boutique hotel in Jerusalem, organised by Viator. Our first day was full of information, amazing sights and fabulous stories. Our second day in Masada and the Dead Sea was full-on and apart from the hot hot weather, which one should've expected in the desert ? the sights/sites seen and visited brought history to life. Thanks Viator and Ben Harim.

This was an amazing tour! Our guide named Rikki was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. Masada was an amazing place to see. Floating on the Dead Sea was so much fun! I would recommend this to anybody. We were very lucky to get a great guide for Jerusalem and Bethlehem too, named Ron. He showed us all around and we had a fantastic day. Beware of the Orthodox Easter as we were nearly crushed in the crowds at the tomb. That was an experience in itself. All good fun.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

A very good tour and without the hassle and danger of renting a car and trying to see the same sites. Would have liked to have had more time in the bazaars in Jerusalem, but then that would have cut the other sites short. Also, having a knowledgeable tour guide as we did makes the experience even better. Highly recommended for any first time traveler to the area who wants to see as much as possible in the shortest time.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Jerusalem, Masada and Dead Sea were great experiences. We learned a lot and got to see a lot of Israel and float on the Dead Sea. Bethlehem was another story. Our guide there was trying to get money from us so we wouldnt have to wait in line to see where Jesus was born and he got mad when we said no
