The tour was AWESOME, AWESOME, totally AWESOME. My husband and I toured Old and New Jerusalem on December 1, 2017. The tour was full of exciting, memorable and historical sites and our tour guides made our tours even better. They were very knowledge and brought life to the historical site that we visited. I would absolutely recommend this tour sponsored by Bein Harim to anyone planning on visiting Israel.

Was a really great tour, with wonderful tour guide. You get to visit so many of the important spots, so it's a great condensed day. I was leaving from Tel Aviv and the fact that they pick you up there and bring you back made the whole thing super convenient as well. Really get a lot packed into one day, and the other people on the tour were very lovely I was by myself.

The trip to old and New Jerusalem was very educational, the guide was fantastic, she gave a lot of actual and pass information along the way and in the city. Although all the problems I felt safe in every place. The timing was also very good as well as the price. It was overall a very nice experience, everyone was very helpful.

Guide did a great job with keeping tour moving but not missing anything. The day was a full 12 hour day including bus ride from Tel Aviv but could have used more time. Maybe have an option to expand this to a 2 day tour????
But this one should still be booked. A lot to see and enjoy.

Great tour guide. Made everything interesting and gave time to see all as we toured old Jerusalem. She also and even though this may sound silly, pointed out WC's if anyone needed..saving everyone the embarrassment of having to ask or delay the group.....tour was excellent and comfortable.
Just be aware, lunch is generally about 2pm or after. We had been up at 5am, had a small breakfast and got ready to walk to where the van would meet us...a half mile away at a hotel. Then waited for the van which brings you to a meeting place and you wait for the correct tour van or bus. Being our first tour, we did not bring snacks and therefore did not eat from 5am till after 2pm and were walking around Jerusalem all morning. It was difficult. Bring snacks!!!!
We then drove to Yad Vashem with sights being pointed out along the way of New Jerusalem.
On arrival, our guide told us of some special areas we might want to visit in Yad Vashem and was sensitive about what we were to see. It was an emotionally devastating and powerful visit, but honestly could have used more time there.

Charlie for Bein Hareim who was the guide was excellent. Jerusalem surely is the spiritual capital of the World.

This tour was beautiful! As we approached Jerusalem, we stopped for pictures of Old Jerusalem from a distance. Shortly after arriving in Old Jerusalem, we walked stations 5 through 14 of the Via Dolorosa. Along the way, our tour guide explained what happened when Jesus walked this path on His way to His crucifixion. There are many souvenir shops along the way. At the end of this path, we visited the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher which is built in the location of the crucifixion and burial of Jesus. It was a very moving experience. Afterwards, we went to the Western Wall, also called the Wailing Wall which is the wall that remained after the Temple of Jerusalem was destroyed. It is considered the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray. After leaving Old Jerusalem, we went to visit Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum on the western slope of Mount Herzl on the Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem. This was a very moving experience. You could spend days there trying to see and absorb everything! However, we only had about 2 1/2 hours there. This tour was excellent and included a lot of interesting information, history and sights, and our tour guide was excellent and friendly. I would highly recommend it.

The trip was extremely interesting and we had almost not free time, although we agree that to see what we have seen, there was no alternative. So this is the right timing. Itamar was also very knowledgeable about the places we have visited.

The tour was very good and we particularly liked our guide Amir who was knowledgeable and funny. He gave a very good perspective in a relatively short time. The tour was on time but not so tied to the schedule that we felt hurried. We of course could have spent more time at all of the sites but the tour was a great introduction for a return trip to Jerusalem. It met or exceeded our expectations.

Our guide Amir Call Or made this tour fantastic. He has an exuberant passion for his work that is displayed through his vast knowledge of Israel. Jerusalem is an amazing and complex place that deserves more than one tour but this is a great introduction.

Great way to see Jerusalem with an expert guide. Only problem when you do a tour is that you don't always have enough time at certain places. Could definitely have done with more time at Yad Vashem
But really enjoyed the day.

Loved this tour. Before booking, we were apprehensive this would be a large, impersonal bus tour but in fact it was a perfect size -- 12 Amir, like the 12 Tribes of Israel or the 12 Apostles. Amir looks a bit like The Dude and achieves the broad appeal of Nirvana -- whether you're a newbie or a sophisticate, you'll get something out of his incredible presence and presentation. He synthesizes geography, history, linguistics, modern politics and archaeology the last two of which, you'll learn, can be related!. Highly recommend this tour.

Very good tour. Luxery bus (but with no bathroom) picked us up at the front door of our hotel; which made it very easy for our family of 2 adults and 3 kids. Quick trip to Jerusalem with an excellent guide! Highly recommend this day tour.

This tour was the highlight of my vacation mostly because of the tour guide Amir. I have been on hundreds of tours but this individual sits in a class by himself. The very best!!!! The city of Jerusalem is amazingly beautiful and full of plenty of history!!

A good tour overall. Excellent tour guide. However, I really dislike the fact that tourists are always taken to a shop or restaurant. I know there is no obligation to buy etc but maybe the guides could just let us find our own way. Just a thought even though we all know there are people who do actually need a guide's input.

the guide was good and had a detailed and interesting knowledge but he unfortunately brought in his personal political views which were not part of his role. Stick to the role, providing information and answering questions but leave out the phsycological mumbo jumbo and the personal polotics.
