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.

The tour was really worth it if you have little time in Jerusalem. It was lively and we each had enough time to look around ourselves. The information was interesting without being completely overwhelmed. Our guide Hanoch was funny, very nice and we were completely satisfied with him. We would definitely recommend the tour!

The excursion was very interesting and rewarding. Visit the must-see sites. Thanks to our two guides: Robert (for the visit to Jerusalem) and Nabil (for the visit to Betlehem). The transfer went very well.

Uri , our tour guide was very competent and friendly! A perfectly organised trip , I can only recommend

Ariel was very informative and interesting to listen to
