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 trip was very successful, especially Jerusalem, we found a great guide, he gave us a lot of interesting information. I also recommend Bethlehem and the Dead Sea, but a typical place for tourists by the sea, very high prices.

it was a great trip. our guide Avi was extremely knowledgeable about everything we saw. with the holiday and our trip being on Good Friday. we had to walk a lot bit Avi made it all work out!!!

Excellent guide and excellent day full of historical landmarks with unique stories. Thank you
