Guide was excellent, however didn’t enjoy aspects of the tour

Norbert, our guide, was phenomenal. He was super knowledgeable and kept the group on track, despite some tour members who were easily distracted. Overall, we had an enjoyable time and learned plenty. There were areas that disappointed us about the tour: - this tour picks you up, then you go to a central bus area where you wait again. With all the transfers, traffic, and delays, we didn’t get to Jerusalem until 10:15am. It was 3 hours before the actual experience in Jerusalem began. It would have been good to know. - upon arrival in Old Jerusalem, we were taken to a store for 30 minutes. We were given a lecture by the store owner and pressured sales. We were totally uninterested in 30 minutes of our tour being taken up by a scam for extra revenue. Other than those two areas, it was a great way to spend the day (though long) and, again, Norbert deserves plenty of kudos for doing such a great job.

Good tour if you only have a day to spare

This tour to Jerusalem was a great experience, since we only had a few days at Tel Aviv and wouldn‘t have gone to Jerusalem otherwise. The tour includes all the main sights in Jerusalem, including Yad Vashem. While well organized, don‘t expect to have much time to explore individually or to stay at one of the religious sights for a little longer. Quite to the contrary: You will only stop for a few minutes at each location, half an hour at best, which is barely enough to grasp the historical setting surrounding you in Jerusalem. I chose not to give five stars because this tour included a few cringeworthy moments: I could live with the break at an Elvis Presley fan‘s coffee place, but the souvenir shop, at which you could buy all you allegedly need to forge your own relic (...), and the busy (yet ok) lunch restaurant were not really necessary.

Excellent tour, beautiful places, lot of historical and interesting

Guide was not the very best, time given for HOLY CHURCH of sepulchre was too little just 40mins, considering the huge crowds and the importance of this church, the long distances we travel to come n expenditure involved, we certainly wished to see Jesus tomb, in the bargain we got late coming out, and our guide had left us behind, we missed the bus, without a phone we requested a shopkeeper and contacted the company, we were surprised with thr promptness that the company contacted us back and kept a taxi waiting for us and helped us join the bus again. However the tour ended much before time within 8hrs when we were told 11hrs, hence we feel at least 1hour should be given for thr holy church of sepulchre considering the crowds there to worship and waiting in line for Jesus tomb.

Tour Guide of Old Town has a difficult task

Old Jerusalem is very busy, mostly w large Group Tours. Our Guide, Uda Levy took good care of us and managed to get us to see everything we wanted, albeit at time briefly due to the crowds. Mr Levy was open to all questions and provided detailed answers. This Small Group Tour was for a total of 13 people and was run from a comfortable stretch Luxury Van which took us to areas (parking ) which Buses could not reach. This made some areas of the Tour less of walk. The Visit to Mary’s Spring ( Saturday) was beautiful and in a rural setting deep in the Valley below the Holocaust Museum which is also worth a visit ( days other than Sabbat)

The Guided Tour of Old Jerusalem - A Learning Experience

The tour was organized very well. Large airconditioned, comfortable bus delivered our group from Tel Aviv and back with maximum comfort. Itamar, a young, but highly knowledgeable young man, was detailed and factual in describing the history of Jerusalem and the lives of people that made history over 2000 years ago, in the manner, that was capturing attention of all members of our group. The tour of Jerusalem requires a good stamina, as it's a walking tour! We walked through Old Jerusalem most of the day in 25 to 35 degrees Celsius. But if you can do it, it's worth it. Memorable!
