Excellent tour

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.

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!

the guide told very well and in a nice way about the different sights. I expected we would have more time in the souk in the old town. We went to the new market instead. I found that less interesting and too short a time there. Also very nice with a small group of people.

everything was in order and the mini bus on time .our tour guide Liran was very nice and friendly but also had a lot of knowledge about the places and their history. Really a tour to remember !

Very strenuous walk with high temperatures in summer and with long clothes, but highly recommended for history and religion. An absolute must.
