Highly recommend this tour for an organized & excellent historical overview of these sights. Norbert was the guide & driver for the day and I was extremely impressed at how he was able to do both simultaneously with enthusiasm. Free time per location is limited but enough time to snap a couple of photos before heading to the next destination. Bring 50 shekels cash for the Arabian lunch during the tour & enjoy!

Guide was very kind and knew the history. She told us enough to understand and could easily answer questions but did not overwhelm us and lose our interest. The bus was clean and comfortable and the driver was excellent.

Our guide, Levi, took us to the normal places as well as unique places including the Ilana Goor Museum in Old Jaffa. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant and we would definitely recommend him to other travelers.

The tour does not start as mention in get your guide at 8:30 it starts at 7:30 am. Any way we had to wait for the people from tel aviv to arrive and they where late. The guide was ok

Ghe tour was great. It is worth it to go for the sunrise but just to know you will be walking on the rocky path to the top that is about an hour (definitely comfortable shoes)
