Overall the tour was Outstanding. It packed a lot of activities in one day. Our tour guide Jacob explained everything in details as well as entertained us with his jokes throughout the tour. We covered almost all the famous points in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and the Dead Sea, though in a rush. If you only have one day, this is an excellent tour. However, if you have more days, I would recommend to spread these visits over 2-3 days to enjoy to the fullest and not be in rush.

It was an amazing experience! The trip it's worth every penny. Everything was well organised, they were at the pickup spot in time, and we left Tel Aviv at the scheduled time. We had 3 guides all through the day! First one from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, second one (Allan) in Jerusalem and one lady in Bethlehem! The first 2 were outstanding, especially Allan! He is very knowledgeable, funny and smart! He took us into a story of Jerusalem 500 - 2000 years ago! The places we saw are also very interesting and full of history and spirituality! If I would have to point minuses of the trip, those would be the fact that the time in Bethleem was very short, the guide (lady) even though she was nice and full of good intentions, didn't speak a good English and seemed in a hectic rush. Also, another minus is the fact that being a lot to see for one day, it gives you the feeling that you are always running between objectives.
