    Excellent instructions for pick up and Michael our guide was a great driver and very informative during the majority of the day. There was enough time at each of the attractions to spend time and learn about what was going on. I am unable to rate this any higher as the return back to Tel Aviv let it down, no information, took 4hours and at times we were stationary without information about when we were likely to get back to our hotel. This was due to overloading the coach on the return leg with other passengers from another trip. Sadly this left a sour taste in people’s mouths and some couples even got off the coach and starting walking to their hotel. After checking this was not an option for us with a 40 minute walk ahead if we had so we waited and took the risk which luckily only ended up been half this time.
