Fantastic tour very fast support and the guide was very good and explain and show the sites as expected. We had hoped to be beaten in the Jourdan but we only had 20 minutes between other visits so no time. It's better to visit Yardonit at the end because we would have had time to do it because we returned around 1630 in Tel Aviv!!!!!!!. We asked to be able to go for a while in front of the beach while waiting for the other bus that was supposed to come, but a couple on the bus refused, and we had to wait 1 hour and 30 minutes on the bus! We weren't happy about it. was very painful it was hot and the beach was in front and the guide had said it's ok, we had in advance. Then after having traveled by bus 2 x times we returned to the hotel of departure where we asked to be able to wait and were refused. it was 6 pm, and we had to go around Tel Aviv to bring people to their hotels before leaving for Jerusalem...very disappointed.

I selected this tour for my 78 year old mother. She cannot walk for miles all day. So moving from one location to another via the tour bus with narration along the way was important to me. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and thorough of the areas and towns we passed through. When we visited the church of the annunciation and the Franciscan church of Joseph's home, my mom passed out fro the heat. The tour guide was very good in assisting and enlisting the help of fellow tourists. We were able to carry her in her wheel chair back to the AC bus and revive my mom. My mom took it easy and did not push herself too hard and was able to complete the tour without missing a beat due to the professional and compassionate care of our tour guide and our fellow tourists.

The name is misleading. Otherwise OK

The name of the tour is misleading. I thought that the biblical highlights of Jerusalem are shown. Instead, "from Jerusalem" means that the departure from Jerusalem takes place to Nazareth, Tiberia. Trip itself was super interesting. You do not have too much time, for example, to take photos, but still very worth seeing and informative.
