What people are saying about Western Wall

Guide was very well known. She would even be recognized by a lot of the tour guides along the way whom she either worked or trained before. She really is a very experienced guide and has a lot of stories but best part about her is that she doesn't tell them in a way that it feels like your in a class and it gets boring. She tells the important details and some extra info and gives you enough time to be on your own and have the experience of being in the Holy Land not just to take pictures but to just to enjoy the city of peace. She treats everyone like adults which I like and not baby anyone, and gives direct and simple instructions as to where to meet up after.

It was really an excellent tour, we enjoyed it a LOT. All the details you included in the tour, from the detailed history of Israel, to the van infrastructure to the beer at the end, it was a memorable experience.
