It was a good but not excellent, the places you visit are great but the guides need a better to improve their language so they can have better communication with guests, also my particular guide was walking super fast even though there was a senior lady walking with walking cane

Really nice whole day trip. Excelent tour guide but Do NoT buy suveniers from the place that they will take you, the are extremly expensive. You will Find them at probably 30% or even less at a nearby shop or in the market near the Western Wall. Also do not eat at the restaurant where they take you as the food is Poor and expensive, you will Find way better places to eat

We really enjoyed our tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Our guide Avi was exceptional! He was funny, respectful, very knowledgable and made all of us very comfortable during our tour. This was such a learning and amazing experience and we are happy that we chose Bein Harim-Israel Tours and Travel.
