Excellent guide (name: Liat), spoke English, Spanish and French, easy understandable, knowledgeable about the sights we visited. She focused on the most important highlights to remember and was open for additional questions from the group (some guides drown you with details, and you end up remembering nothing). Friendly. The tour had a pleasant pace, with some individual time on each site to enjoy the highlights after the guiding. No stress. Highly recommended.
We started our tour from impressive Arce grotto, continued with Arce port, castle of templiers with hidden channels to the port. We had very experienced guide Juda who told us history of the city, and most important events. After that we continued to Haifa, where we had possibility to observe amazing cascades of the garden from the top and we finished out tour in Cesarea, also wonderful ancient Roman city. We had amazing day and lot of nice impressions.
Yuda was an excelente guide. He knew a lot about everything and was happy to give as many explanations as possible. I believe the tour needs to reviewed though as we spent like 5 minutes in Haifa only and the garden was closed. To me it's pointless to sell a stop in haifa like that. I strongly believe more time is needed in Akko as well.
I wanted to learn the history but didn't get a chance to read the information. There was no time to shop or look around. No information regarding Haifa and the buildings surrounding the town
If there is the chance of rain take an umbrella! otherwise an enjoyable tour with Sharon providing excellent background knowledge. Met some lovely friends as well.
