    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.

What people are saying about Church of the Holy Sepulchre

Guide was very well known. She would even be recognized by a lot of the tour guides along the way whom she either worked or trained before. She really is a very experienced guide and has a lot of stories but best part about her is that she doesn't tell them in a way that it feels like your in a class and it gets boring. She tells the important details and some extra info and gives you enough time to be on your own and have the experience of being in the Holy Land not just to take pictures but to just to enjoy the city of peace. She treats everyone like adults which I like and not baby anyone, and gives direct and simple instructions as to where to meet up after.

Excellent experience for people that don't want to worry about planning!... Picked up and left at our Hotel, wonderful visit to Mount of Olives, Old Jerusalem, The Wailing Wall, The Holy Sepulcher Church, etc. Great guide and explaining all the details on the sites that we visited!... If anyone has only one day to visit Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, it's the perfect choice.

Perfectly organized tour despite the overloaded program. Our guide Sigal was very knowledgeable and made sure everything fits in the program. If you have more time take a second day to leisurely spend in Jerusalem but if you have only one like us, this is enough to see the main highlights. We recommend this tour.

The tour was very well organized, our guide Giora Sarid was very helpful and we enjoyed his detailed explanations of the many wonderful places and things he presented to us. We also appreciated his patience in answering our many questions.

We saw all the important sights in Jerusalem and had a fun and relaxing swim in the Dead Sea.
