Great day trip. I joined solo with a lovely group of approx 20 others. Daniel was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. Avi was our bus driver for the day making sure we were all collected on time and had nice cool air con :) There’s a lot packed in to the day trip and I really felt like I had an authentic tour and experience! Highly recommend.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided interesting and helpful information about the places we saw. We did not spend an excess of time in any of the shopping venues, which I appreciated since it gave us more time to spend at Caesarea and Acre.

This tour was really interesting! We had only one day to visit in Israel and I am glad we chose this day trip to Jerusalem and Bethlehem. We were able to see many places and got a very entertaining explanation from the guide. Highly recommended!

The tour was really great. All 3 places in one day is ambitious, but there was enough time at all 3 places. Masada was completely guided by the guide. In En Gedi and at the Dead Sea we had enough time to look around alone.

Wonderful trip with great tour guide Anat and driver Yosheley (unsure of spelling). They made the tour fun, interactive, full of history and exciting!
