This tour was exactly what we needed! As we only had a day to see Jerusalem, the tour gave us a great flavour of the incredible culture, history and uniqueness of Jerusalem. I just wish we had more time to spend in Jerusalem, a few days at least is needed to properly appreciate it!

Looking for a day trip from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, it was slim pickings on ones with good reviews. Others do multiple pick ups, takes 3 hours to arrive and has you in Jerusalem during the busiest period of the day. We were one of the first groups in early (the central pick up point means you get to Jerusalem way quicker) and they don’t waste time trying to take you to stores to buy trinkets with kick backs like so many others complain of. When you leave the old town around 1pm, everyone else is just getting into the swing of things and it is packed. Chris was an informative and courteous guide, and feel very lucky to stumble across this gem.

de gids vertelde heel goed en op een leuke manier over de verschillende bezienswaardigheden. Ik had verwacht dat we meer tijd zouden hebben in de souk in de oude stad. We gingen in plaats daarvan naar de nieuwe markt. Dat vond ik minder boeiend en ook te korte tijd daar. Verder wel erg leuk met een kleine groep mensen.
