    This as well as few of my other tours were booked thru bein harim . The best part were guides . They were knowledgeable and helpful and made the tour informative and entertaining. The really bad part was the stops at the Christian souvenir stores . I trusted that since it was being recommended by Bein Harim at these stores , and since my tour guides said there is no bargaining , I trusted them and bought a nativity set in Old Jerusalem . After I got back I was told that I got ripped off ! . That nativity set should have been 2500 shekels and not 2500 dollars ! When I called to cancel the order 4 hrs later they refused . It was a learning experience - I wish I was better informed !

    Jerusalem is an amazing city but in this tour you'll stay in a Cafeteria for one hour and then in a souvenir store for 40 minutes, then you'll hardly get 20 minutes to enjoy the important places mentioned in the tour, if you have the chance of going by your own, better to do so. Also, the tour was in English and Spanish, so the guide was saying every sentence in both languages wich was very annoying.

    We had a great time with Dan Porges leading this tour - he was super informed, entertaining, interesting and helpful. He did a fantastic job of leading us through some of the top highlights of Jerusalem - we definitely felt like it was a great experience and that we learned a lot. Would highly recommend it.

    Very knowledgeable guide! Was very interesting! Highly recommend! Me and my wife enjoy every minute.

    My lifelong wish couldn’t be fulfilled because of a unfriendly tour guide attached to us by name Mr Toren Eagle ( I have no option other than naming him) . He had preferences over food/ juices/ souvenirs shops and allotted more time to trivial things than giving more to spend at Holy Sepulchre. Perhaps he love only Jews and not others. Only 20 minutes for Holy Sepulchre isn’t sufficient to see and spend among thousands of visitors or believers. Above all, allotted half a day is to see the Museum which can be spent purposefully otherwise. Tour operator should reorient such guides or keep them away from religious places. Can I revisit Holy Sepulchre again in my life time? NO

    Tour guide was phenomenal. The way the trip was structured a bit confusing. Not sure I got the full experience. The Wailing wall was a moment to remember, as were out walks thru the markets. Still founded lacking...something was missing. Hope my next one is better.

    Avi was a great guide, the tour was super interesting, he gave a lot of good insights and real cases from local culture and past history.

    The trip itself could be fabulous, unfortunately we had a negligent guide called UDI who ruined our experience. The places we were supposed to go to and spend a lot of time at were cut short due to him stopping for an hour for coffee, 90 minutes for lunch then an hour in his favourite shop in Jerusalem. We had no choice about where to eat, there were 2 options, he left most of the group crossing main roads and was very negligent going to where he wanted to be leaving us to do catch up. The old city is beautiful and Yad Vashem is heart wrenching, however we weren’t given enough time at any of the places. He is passionate about politics and history which helped take the sting out of, what could only be to me a badly organised day.

    Our guide (Avishai?) brought the group to a tourism approved shop and we were there about an hour. He implied that people asked for this but I never heard this and clearly he and the shop owner were the best of friends. We also stopped where a young boy was squeezing juice from oranges and pomegranates. Avishai stated he has known the boy since he was born. This seems another regular stop for Avishai and another 30 minutes wasted. My wife and I joined the trip in Jerusalem and did not come from Tel Aviv as the rest of the group had. One other couple finished the day being dropped at a hotel in Jerusalem. We both needed to transfer busses at Yad Vashem so Avishai's bus could return directly to Tel Aviv. This is as we expected and organized by Bein Harim which does an amazing job of managing all the logistics. Avishai suggested he was going out of his way to take care of us. In my mind, he was just barely doing his job. He also did a poor job of keeping track of people. Other guides we had did a very good job of indicating how long each stop was to be, where we to meet after the stop, and would count the group before moving on. Avishai knew his history well enough and explained the sites but was the worst of four guides we had with Bein Harim. This was our fourth and last day with Bein Harim and we were very disappointed.

    I went on this tour last minute because my other Jerusalem tour got cancelled. If you’re short on time, this would be the tour for you. With that being said, it’s kind of rushed. Wish I could’ve had more time in the old city. The food place was chosen for us and it was mediocre.
