The tour was very well structured and organised, our guide Shalced was really amazing, full of insights, cultural and other information, really recommended
Our tour guide Avishai created a wonderful memory of Jerusalem and Bethlehem for us. He is very knowledgeable and funny too!! Best tour guide I’ve had. Please give him a raise.
Thank you Avishai hope to see you again one day.
There aren't enough words to describe what an amazing day this was....it wasn't simply the extraordinary biblical locations.....their beauty and power.....the history that is the foundation of the Western world...which was pretty amazing, I must say. It's having the privilege of being with our tour guide Amir Call Or who is an extraordinary combination of historian, etymologist, sociologist, geologist, archeologist, comparative religious studies professor, and story teller who asked not to site see, but instead site feel our way into the middle east with him and see how all the contradictory pieces wove together into the state it is in today...it literally shattered my belief of what the issues were, and more importantly how I assumed it could be solved AND left me with immense hope. He is an ambassador for Israel, compassion and peace with his eyes wide open....a remarkable combination. It was a journey on a lot of levels. I hope you are as lucky as we were.
It was just and simple the best, thank you so much, i had only two days in Israel and this tour
My my trip and full fill my life as a Catholic Christian.
Will take this tour every time. I also would love to thank our Guie he was awesome.
Amir Call Or is THE best guide I ever had! He made everyone in the group really feel Israel and its rich history. Thumbs up!
A lot to do in one day but well worth it if you are short on time. Fascinating and the guides and drivers were brilliant.
Overall, the trip was amazing! The tour guide made the experience so much more rewarding. There were some people that had special needs on the trip so the guide reworked some of the day to make sure everyone had en enjoyable experience.
It amazing that they can do both tours of Jerusalem and Bethlehem in one tour. All the tour guides were knowledgeable. I want to take the whole family one day. Highly recommended!
This was my second Viator tour, in a different country this time, and it didn't disappoint. The driver/guide was prompt, arriving at our hotel about 10 minutes early. We started with Bethlehem, which meant that we had to have a local Palestinian guide and he was excellent. We made a stop at a Christian souvenir shop and then visited the Church of the Nativity, with the guide helping us understand this complicated church. After leaving Bethlehem and returning to Israel, we stopped for a panoramic view of Jerusalem. We entered the city through the Jaffa gate and passed through part of the Christian and Jewish quarter. Unfortunately, it was Saturday, so photos and writing notes for the Western Wall was prohibited. We passed into the Muslim quarter having some time to shop and traversed the Via Dolorosa, arriving eventually at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. It was super crowded, and the guide gave us an excellent explanation before we entered the church. I loved that we had a little time for shopping, too.
The only negative I have is that our guide should have been more informative about the rules on Shabat. He implied that photos were not permitted only of the Western Wall, but that was not the case, photos of any kind were not permitted. And one Jewish woman from the US but not in our group was disappointed that she wasn't allowed to write a note for the wall. He did stop us at an overlook so we could take photos at a distance before entering the area.
It's a totally fascinating city with its diverse groups and it was interested to see the separation wall and the West Bank settlements closeup.
Wonderful tour from Tel Aviv. I was picked up at my hotel in Tel Aviv and taken to a meeting place to sort out all the buses. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoyed all the visits and especially the chance to see so much history and to follow Jesus' footsteps.
the only negative was the forced stop in an over priced souvenir shop that I'm sure provided a commission to the tour company.

The guide was great. Very knowledgable and insightful. The tour in itself is stunning. All in all this tour was outstanding.
This was a trip worth taking and paying for. Our guide Yoav was brilliant, he told us a lot of very interesting things about the history of Jerusalem and in fact spurred our interest to find out more, as the history of this amazing city is too rich for a one day tour. The visit to Bethlehem was also very educational. All in all this was a very memorable day!
Superb Tour, Moodie ? guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. Jerusalem is a fascinating place even for someone like myself with little religious knowledge. Got to see the four quarters of the old city and feel the history of the place. Going to Bethlehem enhanced the trip too. Would recommend this trip.
Our guide Zahi was extremely nice, funny and helpful. He added more to the tour than we actually paid for, and we had a rich experience of both Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
What a great tour! Even better was the tour guide as she was knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. She seemed to enjoy both people and what she was doing.
The fact that we saw such history and areas of cultural importance for the world due to three religions made it even better. Would love to go again.
This a tour not to be missed when in Israel. Our guide, Hezi, was very knowledgeable about the cultures and religions, pertaining to all the holy sites and explained all in details. Our tour had 30 to 35 participants, all with different backgrounds and cultures and Hezi was extremely talented and diplomatic around sensitive issues and truly a joy to watch. Well done and planned!
Outstanding tour with an outstanding tour guide. It was without question above and beyond my expectations. Pls be prepared for crowds on special Holy days. The overall organization of the Bethlehem part of the trip could be slightly improved to make it as outstanding as the Jerusalem parts.
This trip was awesome! Our guide Norbert was very funny, his english was very good and also my friend who doesnt speak very good english understood him. Thanks to Norbert was this tour one of the best. The Jerusalem is so beautiful town. We were walking a lot, so its very important to have a really good and comfortable shoes.
Very good trip. And guide yousaf. Lots of walking at quite a fast pace and some steep steps so might be too much for some . But we found it very interesting and would say go it's well worth it.
I would like to express my extreme satisfaction following this one day tour in Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Our tour leader Mr Yoav made this tour one of the best I have ever been to, he was very knowledgeable and planned the tour excellently and always took care of every person in the group with great responsibility. Thank you Yoav!
I think our wonderful tour guide Eli made this trip as enjoyable as it was! He gave us a lot of insight into the history while keeping it fun. Israeli sarcasm is great!
We had a packed itinerary and got a lot done in the day. Certainly a memorable trip!
Great tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem! The tour covers a lot of places, so be ready to walk. It can be fast paced at times, but be assured, they won't lose you. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the places visited and about questions asked. Don't be afraid to speak up if you have questions, as they are friendly and will answer you the best they can.
I participated in Dec 30 2016 tour to Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Mr Zahi, our tour guide was very friendly and always gave us concise and interesting explanation of the sites and life in Israel. I really want to participate in the tour to Nazareth next time.
perfectly organized, in terms of pick up and schedule. Norbert is an extremely nice and prepared guide, he knows how to gather the attention and he can answer any question...with a very reasonable approach to every matter. Jerusalem is splendid...and the deep story that surrounds absolutely requires this kind of guided tour to get the most out of it...strongly recommended!!!
