My experience was fantastic. A really fun day meeting very friendly people and gaining a lot of insight into past and current socio-cultural climate in Israel and Palestine. You can see so much in one day! The driver was especially kind, and had a lot of interesting things to say about life in the region today. It took away a lot of the misconceptions given by western media. It was a really informative day, yet very chill and relaxing. One thing to keep in mind is that the stops on the tour are subject to change depending on weather, problems at the checkpoint and groups. They kind of mixed a few people together and combined our tours (also because it was raining so some stops were closed). If you're flexible and dont mind that things could change on the day, it's a great experience. However, if you have a very specific need to see a certain site, I would recommend getting in touch with the tour company the night before the tour to check what their plans are.
It was an amazing experience! The trip it's worth every penny. Everything was well organised, they were at the pickup spot in time, and we left Tel Aviv at the scheduled time. We had 3 guides all through the day! First one from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, second one (Allan) in Jerusalem and one lady in Bethlehem! The first 2 were outstanding, especially Allan! He is very knowledgeable, funny and smart! He took us into a story of Jerusalem 500 - 2000 years ago! The places we saw are also very interesting and full of history and spirituality! If I would have to point minuses of the trip, those would be the fact that the time in Bethleem was very short, the guide (lady) even though she was nice and full of good intentions, didn't speak a good English and seemed in a hectic rush. Also, another minus is the fact that being a lot to see for one day, it gives you the feeling that you are always running between objectives.
Good day experience, with good tour guides, however there was no access for our group to birthplace of Jesus at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem because of services on Friday and we haven’t been aware of it. This information should be provided. Big downside of the tour.
Jospeh the tour guide in Jerusalem was amazing! I could not recommend this man enough his knowledge, friendliness and his sense of humour was amazing! Bethlehem was okay was very rushed and the tour guide was a bit all over the place,
Great trip and very well organised, guides and coach driver excellent. Not the most religious of individuals but found the trip amazing interesting and educational, definitely one to tick off live's bucket list of things to see!!!
