Picked up on time, the trip was good and the tour guide was very understandable. We saw a lot in a short time, which was also very tiring.

The tour was interesting and informative. The guide was good and authentic. Jerusalem is very impressive. I would recommend this tour.
Really good and worthwhile as you learn so much. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend even if it is not your first time to Jerusalem.
