Very reccomended! and worth the money because you will see so many things in one day! Yael was a great guide in Jerusalem and so was George in Bethlem...we enjoyied every minute of our trip. We suggest to take some snacks for the day and have a good pair of shoes because you will walk a lot. Really good experience!

The reps were amazing so much know ledge about the history which I wanted . I was just sad that we only had 20 minutes in the Dead Sea as we didn’t arrive there until 4.25 pm . I think we shouldn’t have spent so much time in Bethlehem eating as we could have ate in the Dead Sea and people could have chosen to eat if they wanted to .
