  • This tour was disappointing, and mostly in part to the day's schedule. The pickup process was smooth, but required us to change buses at a location with many different buses, which was confusing and disorienting. We had a different tour guide for each part of the tour, which made it difficult to maintain continuity. We started at the Dead Sea private beach, where we were immediately greeted by a gift shop presentation. We were not told about the ability to rent towels or toiletries until the end of the tour, which would have been helpful at the start. From the Dead Sea, we went directly to Jerusalem, where we met our 2nd tour guide. We spent approximately two hours in Jerusalem, and felt incredibly rushed. We were unable to stop at any of the local shops, and we were not able to view any of the sites closely. We had particularly wanted to see the site of the Crucifixition and Jesus' burial site, but were told we did not have time. When we arrived at the Western Wall, we were given 10 minutes to use the restroom and/or pray, and one of our tour mates was left behind because he missed the 10 minute mark. We repeatedly told our tour guide to wait for him, and she refused. We went to Bethlehem, where we met our 3rd tour guide, and he took us directly to a gift shop where we spent approximately 30 minutes. Our actual visit to the Church of the Nativity barely lasted 10 minutes.

    This tour was very disappointing and I would not recommend it. We were not given time for lunch or even a snack, which makes lasting through a full-day tour very difficult. We were taken to three different gift shops where we were encouraged to buy from Good Christian families, and then rushed through the actual tour sites. Perhaps ifthe time at the gift shops was reduced or eliminated, we would have had more time to visit the things we paid to see.

  • What a great tour! I wasn't really prepared for the cold weather but what an informative tour. I was able to use the information I learned and returned the next day to do some more exploring on my own. Our driver was the best! Mohammed was just perfect!. I wished we had more time in these places, it felt a bit rushed towards the end especially Jerusalem...but I was able to use the information to guide my own way thru the city the following day. The next time I go back, I will for sure book a Fun-Time tour! Thanks

  • This tour was definitely highlight of my Israeli trip!
    I overslept on my bus tour and I got completely panicked but they were so kind to book me on the tour next day!!!
    Thank you so much for your flexibility!!
    Highly recommend!!

  • Too many sights in one tour. We felt like it was a speed tour, rushing through all the sites and not really getting to enjoy them. I would recommend breaking it up a bit and doing Jerusalem and Dead Sea as two different tours.

  • The tour was very interesting, it was however very long. When in the old city of Jerusalem our tour guide rushed us through the whole thing. He even yelled at us for being to slow, even though we were right behind the couple infront of us. He expected we just push trough people but it became hard in such a large group. He yelled at us infront of the whole group, told us we needed to be at the front at all times, even though at the beginningn of the tour he said that it's our responsibility to stay with the group, it seemed that it may have been because we were three younger females that he was causing all the commotion bexause he wasn't as concerned about the male groups or couples being at the back or veering off for a quick minute. I do have to say that after the whole tour I don't feel like I learned any THing because it was just so quick and I saw mostly my feet trying to make sure I don't trip on anything as I ran through the streets. You do not have time to shop or stop for pictures.

    Just a heads up you're best off bringing a lunch, we only really stopped for lunch because a few people made a big deal about it however, we most likely wouldn't have otherwise. 3pm for lunch was a bit late for most people. My friends and I brought lunch which was highly worth it.

    The Dead Sea was an unreal experinence. Make sure to bring a swim suite and towel. The water is nice and warm so don't worry about the temperature of the water!

  • Dead sea experience was great, the beach was nice and we had a lot of fun. I was very disappointed with Jerusalem sightseeing. We had to wait 30 minutes for an other group to join us and later we had to run from one place to another to compensate for the time lost. It was not better in Bethlehem, we entered to the Church of the Nativity, but couldn't see the Jesus' birthplace as we were told there was a 2h line and local wedding. It was my second time in Jerusalem and Bethlehem and the last time with Viator.

  • Overall the sites were great, was very disappointed about the time in Bethlehem. We didn't get enough time at the nativity church because they took us to a store seemed as if it was family of the tour guide and they told us the church was closed spent like 45 minutes there. When we get to the church it was super busy, no hint of it being closed at all. We were not taken to the Market that we were told we were going in Bethlehem. Jerusalem was amazing. The Dead Sea was too choppy and they did not allow us to get in it.

  • I WILL NEVER EVER RECOMMEND THIS TOUR AGAIN. THE TOUR GUIDE MOISÉS OR MOSHE IS RUDE, SARCASTIC, RACIST AND NO PATIENCE TO OLD PEOPLE.

  • The actual sites were great to see. It was great to luxuriate in the Dead Sea, and Jerusalem was really interesting. Bethlehem is not all that exciting, but it was nice to see as a little kicker at the end.

    I gave this tour a low rating not because of the sites, but because of the actual tour. We were constantly switching vans some without working air conditioning and people were getting on and off. It was rather confusing, and for the final drive back to Tel Aviv they did not even have enough seats in the van for everyone someone was sitting on the floor.

    Between seeing the Dead Sea and Jerusalem, our van broke down. This happens, and another van was called out to pick us up. I understand that unforeseen events happen. My issue related to what followed. Our time in Jerusalem was cut in half, so we were rushed through the sites. We were also told that no one was allowed to stop at any store or stall to purchase any items. When one person tried to buy something not after browsing - she literally saw an item as we were passing a stall and wanted to take one minute to purchase it, she was told by out guide that she was not allowed and if she did this she would be left behind.

    I can understand that we were on a tight schedule, so we were forbidden to shop. However, our next stop was Bethlehem. When we got there, we were told that we had arrived in Bethlehem early and we could not go to the Church of Nativity yet because it was not open yet but that we could wait in a restaurant where we had stopped. This sounded odd as it was nearly 4:00 in the afternoon - how could the church not be open yet?

    As it turns out, it was not a restaurant it was a shop. However, the items in the shop were of much poorer quality than what was in Jerusalem, and it was 5 to 10 times as much. It became very clear very quickly that we were forbidden to shop in Jerusalem so we would spend our money in this shop. I have been on tours that take you to shops to spend money usually because the guide gets a kick back from the shop for doing this. However, this is why I went with Viator, because I did not want to have to deal with such scams.

    After all of this - the van breaking down, a rushed Jerusalem tour, being forbidden to shop in Jerusalem, and then being forced to spend 30 minutes in a shop in Bethlehem with poorly made and incredibly expensive products - Viator did nothing to compensate us for this. Apparently, this type of tour is business as usual for Viator.

    I will say that our guide/driver in Bethlehem did stop at an extra site requested by a passenger on the way back, and this proved to be one of the best parts of Bethlehem, so I should point that out to be fair.

    The sites are great - I highly recommend seeing them. However, if you are booking with Viator because you want piece of mind that a truly professional operator will be handling your tour, you might be surprised.

  • It was a very nice experience although the driver was very quiet, he did not say a word. The experience in the Dead Sea was very interesting not to be able to sink. Jerusalem was fantastic.
