Great value and well organised. Comfy coach with a very safe driver. Got to see alot in a day. It is very rushed as the guide has to get you back to shop on time. I felt the guide this time had his own agenda and wasn’t flexible at all it was a bit regimented at times but we understood why. a little shopping time should have been allowed in Jerusalem. It was a long day and we missed lunch so we could get a few souvenirs. I was one minute late back from the toilet and the guide didn’t wait for me which was a bit extreme. the chosen lunch venue was very good and fairly priced. Bethlehem was an experience, we had been promised shopping but we got taken to only one shop which mainly sold religious things and was rather expensive. Glad we did the tour as Bethlehem would have been impossible in our own. The driver in Bethlehem was crazy we were glad ti get our driver back. Despite everything it was a great day and I would do it all again. Guide was Ravi or Arvi not sure.
The guide Radian really made the trip. He had great English and was very knowledgeable and helpful. He remained very calm under difficult circumstances., this trip is great value for the price as same trip on the ship was 300 usd. Big problem at start, 1.5 hours of our time lost due to the bus not being allowed into port to pick us up. this made the day rushed at the end. When we arrived at the dead sea the resort was closing in 45 minutes. Would suggest no lunch break is taken at Masada and more time given at the dead sea. The restaurant at Masada was rubbish very unorganised and expensive. We had to eat over 1.5 hours to get the gondola but it was worth it. Despite all these small issues it was a great day and I would Do it again. Take sunscreen, hat , water and good shoes. Thank you Radian, we missed you in Jerusalem.
Our tour with Rafi was great. He was informative, entertaining and handled a few complainers well. My only suggestion would be to change the lunch stop from Masada. They were slow, and food wasn’t good. I know this is difficult with a bus full of tourists. I would have preferred to bring a packed lunch from the ship. Very minor suggestion, I would highly recommend this tour.
This tour gives an great first taste of Jerusalem. After this we're definitely coming back. We're weren't prepared for how bad traffic congestion is. But not blaming tour company for this. Our excellent driver, Mousa, got us to our ship on time, and negotiated through the busy roads.
Tomer was an excellent guide and everything was very well organised and he was very well informed will definitely recommend him. Thanks Tomer warm greetings from South Africa
