Very professional, very experienced guides! Josi was really very helpful and hospitable, he did his very best to reach our demands and wishes. He knew all tips and spots to take the best pics and make the most of Jerusalem in the short time provided. However, travellers should be aware that Jerusalem, as most places in the world, cannot be seen in one day; I mean, it depends on the kind of traveller that one is, i.e. do you want to feel the vibes of the city, sip your arabic coffee reluctantly and get lost in the alleys or are you the reporter kind of tourist that rushes up and down just to tick another place to have visited and post on the social media? Cause in the first case you really need sufficiently more time than one day. What I didn't enjoy in the Holy Land is that the place, though very energetic, lacks the spirituality of the Haidakhan Valley or Mount Athos but has rather turned itself into a touristic attraction.
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.
It was really an excellent tour, we enjoyed it a LOT. All the details you included in the tour, from the detailed history of Israel, to the van infrastructure to the beer at the end, it was a memorable experience. Menno, our guide and manager at the company, was very professional, polite, and conducted the tour with excellence. Among 7 tours in Israel, this one was definitely the best one.
Excellent tour from start to finish. Our guide was simply brilliant although he spoke very fast and at times seemed to talk too much when we needed relax time. Jerusalem and the experience to Bethelhem worth the visit!
The tour was well organized from the beginning to the end with the transfert from the hotel. Amir was an amazing guide all the day! Positive energy, lot of knowledge to share with humour. I highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️
