    Fantastic tour-visiting those places are highly recommended for anyone who is into history and archaeology. There aren’t many places where you can see roman mosaic and crusader fortresses at the very same spots. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, really enjoyed listening to the history of Israel. One thing that was a bit odd for a european: at the end of the tour we felt like we were pushed for tips a bit too harshly. But other than that it was a genuinely fantastic and very enjoyable tour.

    Ehud picked us up at a private residence in Natanya for our full day tour of Nazareth and Galilee. He was punctual and had an amazing day planned for us. His car was luxurious, spacious and very well kept. He kept us ahead of the large crowds and made sure we had space to see the sites and hear his knowledgeable and thorough explainations. We had a lovely lunch and were able to try the St Peter fish which was delicious. He surprised us at the end of the tour with a trip to the oldest kibbutz in Israel and then delivered us to our hotel in Jerusalem. An amazing day and an amazing guide! We highly recommend him.

    Tour plan and tour guides were excellent. Overall enjoyed a lot. We’re very fortunate to ride with a history teacher - Yaron - who was an amazong guide. He’s made this trip even better. Only complaint is that the “larger” tour travels in a very confortable bus, whereas the “small-tour” goes on a uncomfortable and tight van. So, overall, can’t really say the small tour was any better than the cheaper regular “large group” tour. As for the tour, it was totally worth it.

Good value for the money. Able to visit and see interesting locations in a short span of time. Guide was knowledgeable, a bit gruff, had a nice humorous style and his accent at times was a bit thick making it difficult to hear his remarks clearly. He was generous in offering his jacket to my wife who found the weather more cool than expected. Driver was skilled, these two gentleman worked hard and provided a good service. Excellent lunch!

Highly recommend this tour for an organized & excellent historical overview of these sights. Norbert was the guide & driver for the day and I was extremely impressed at how he was able to do both simultaneously with enthusiasm. Free time per location is limited but enough time to snap a couple of photos before heading to the next destination. Bring 50 shekels cash for the Arabian lunch during the tour & enjoy!
