What people are saying about Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial

Overall rating

4.1 / 5

based on 32 reviews

This tour was by minibus rather than coach. The driver was also the guide. The pick-ups took longer than we would have liked, but once we arrived, we had the benefit of small group flexibility. The guide was knowledgable and informative, his English was excellent. Overall, a really great introduction to Jerusalem.

Good and comprehensive tour

Nice tour with a lovely argentinian (!) guide. There was not quite enough time as the programme is very comprehensive, but this is only due to the time and the trip is still a great introduction to Jersusalem

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kind but I had the impression that I missed many important places I wanted to see. The city was so crowded and difficult to keep the group together all the time.

Very warm guide with wonderful knowledge. Everything great.

Great Guide

I can confirm, great time, great Guide, great view.
