    Mount Olive part was great , so was the Western wall , but 10 minutes at the Holy Sepulchre absolutely not enough. This is one the most important churches in the history of Christianity and we were given 10 minutes by our guide to explore. Afterwards , we were spent two hours at the Holocaust museum. I know that Holocaust is very important for Jewish people , but the time spent at different places should be more balanced. This trip wasn’t . Don’t advertise the Holy Sepulchre if you stop in front of the Church for 10 minutes, it is misleading your potential customers , tourists.

    David Ringler is an awesome guide. With a group of 7 friends, we needed to leave a little later, no issue. The program was very fluid, adjusting to our needs. He is very upbeat and knowledgeable, speaks 7 languages and is very sociable. Even though no food/beverages were included, he bought water, beer, shisha... He will make sure the car is cool when you get back. He will get you to the quiet beach at the Dead Sea. Make sure to carve ample of time out, his stories might take a little longer than you've planned time for! :-)

    Our guide was great, very friendly & informative. It was crazy in Jerusalem but very special to be there during Pesach. The only frustration was that there were 4 people from Costa Rica in our group that did not speak English, nor did our guide speak their language. This was not ideal for anyone (them, us or Anneke) & slowed things down unnecessarily. If it weren't for this, I would have rated the tour as excellent!

Enjoyable trip with excellent guide Alona. The pick up and drive to a vantage point outside the city help give great context to the walk. Highly recommend and the insight and background provided by Alona made it so much more than a history talk and walk

Amir Call Or was a unique and great guide that made the day in Jerusalem a special experience. The tour is a perfect first impression - of course you don't have enough time anywhere and then you know you want to come back.

Very nice trip, specifically and to the point. The bus came to the place indicated on the map, so big +. Overall, I recommend heartily, I would happily go for a similar one.

Iliat, our guide spoke very good French / English Pleasant day: we really enjoyed the Old City Long day but we can sleep on the round trip between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem

Super well organized. The Norbert guide (true French of Jewish origin) simply fantastic. Thanks again Norbert.
