An extraordinary experience! Very tight program, wonderful views, a lot of history (great presentation - even young people, like our 13 year old daughter, Amir Call Or, the full name of our guide, was able to inspire). Israel is explained and brought closer to you from a different perspective. Thanks Amir!

Very interesting tour. The bus arrived in perfect time and the guide was very prepared and kind. There was no waste of time in the shops but only a small demonstration of the copper processing in Acri.

The guide Guerion was very nice and he didn’t miss any chance to give us new informations, the tour was amazing and we enjoyed a lot
