It was a very nice experience although the driver was very quiet, he did not say a word. The experience in the Dead Sea was very interesting not to be able to sink. Jerusalem was fantastic.

Fabulous tour and knowledgeable guides in all places. Microphone in bus was not working well which could then not be heard at back but that was minor. There was no stop for lunch which was not ideal and then at app.17.00 in Bethlehem we were directed to a cafe. Did not want to eat at this time as wanted a proper meal back in Tel Aviv but there was no option but to wait for 30 minutes.
All in all a good trip covering many places but would recommend bringing some food along .

It was great tour to get to know a bit more of Jerusalem. I wished we had spend a bit more time in Bethlehem and definitely and I would like to had gone to different area of the Dead Sea because in the area we were it seem too overrun and not well taken care off. The driver as well as both tour guide were amazing!

What a great tour! I wasn't really prepared for the cold weather but what an informative tour. I was able to use the information I learned and returned the next day to do some more exploring on my own. Our driver was the best! Mohammed was just perfect!. I wished we had more time in these places, it felt a bit rushed towards the end especially Jerusalem...but I was able to use the information to guide my own way thru the city the following day. The next time I go back, I will for sure book a Fun-Time tour! Thanks

The tour was very interesting, it was however very long. When in the old city of Jerusalem our tour guide rushed us through the whole thing. He even yelled at us for being to slow, even though we were right behind the couple infront of us. He expected we just push trough people but it became hard in such a large group. He yelled at us infront of the whole group, told us we needed to be at the front at all times, even though at the beginningn of the tour he said that it's our responsibility to stay with the group, it seemed that it may have been because we were three younger females that he was causing all the commotion bexause he wasn't as concerned about the male groups or couples being at the back or veering off for a quick minute. I do have to say that after the whole tour I don't feel like I learned any THing because it was just so quick and I saw mostly my feet trying to make sure I don't trip on anything as I ran through the streets. You do not have time to shop or stop for pictures.

Just a heads up you're best off bringing a lunch, we only really stopped for lunch because a few people made a big deal about it however, we most likely wouldn't have otherwise. 3pm for lunch was a bit late for most people. My friends and I brought lunch which was highly worth it.

The Dead Sea was an unreal experinence. Make sure to bring a swim suite and towel. The water is nice and warm so don't worry about the temperature of the water!
