This tour is a must in Israel. I was amazed by the preservation of the ancient ruins and the beautiful coastline of the cities on this trip. While on the tour, you can skip the line for museums and the cable car. These museums were wonderful too. Keep in mind that when you go to Haifa, you cannot actually enter the gardens, but rather view them from above. It was a beautiful lookout point. The meal in Akko was good too, and is a set meal of only falafel or chicken shawarma. There was even time to do a little souvenir shopping! But what made this tour so amazing was our guide. Tomer is the best tour guide I’ve had in Israel of all 6 times I’ve been here. He is interesting, informative, fun, and organized. Tomer is incredibly knowledgeable, constantly accounts for everyone, and gave wonderful information. He cracked jokes on the bus, always kept us entertained, and overall was just a wonderful guide of these four cities. If you get a chance to do this tour, definitely request Tomer!

All good but I think it's ambitious because: you don't visit Haifa, the bus stops at the top of the Gardens and 20 minutes to look. And in Acre you only visit the great headquarters of the Crusaders, but not the city. The guide (Aviva) great.

Great guide, knowledgeable and professional. We saw a lot of northern Israel and even saw the boarder with Lebanon. Herrods palace was very interesting, along with the Crusaders fortress in Acre.

What an excellent tour! Tomer was extremely knowledgeable and personable. He also paced everything out nicely across all of the stops on the tour.

Amazing historical biblical views. Excellent tour guide . Way to go OMRI
