It was okay. I mean this can be a self guided tour for sure if you have written or audio information about the sites. If you’re a Christain, I suggest getting a guide who gives a more Christain perspective and shows more Christain sites. If you don’t mind then this tour is good as it touches on all faith. Also suggest going to the city of David and garden tomb as these sites will not be covered in the tour.

Nimrod our guide was fantastic, he was able to answer all questions and impressed everyone in the group. The tour went into great depth of history, but there was also time for a detour to the Shuk. If you are in the bay, ask about Nimrod, we can only recommend it

Yariv is an incredible guide. He shared all his knowledge, took a lot of time to answer our many questions. His energy and good balance of humor and respect to history, religion and people was impressive. Thank you!
