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.

It was a pleasant experience, both tours, the one to Jersualem with Juno and the one to Bethlehem with Itamar and María, gave very good explanations in both English and Spanish, the time was met and the transportation was also very good.

It was fun and full of information walking tour. Dror our guide was great and cared enough to get to know us. We walked and toured the Old City for more than what was advertised yet it was memorable one!

Our guide was wonderfully knowledgeable, delivered a huge amount of info and context with maps she brought on site. it was a really cool way to learn more about Jerusalem and it's many resident faiths.

It was a unique, wonderful experience in a magical place. The ZAHI SHAKED super guide! I recommend to all these tours!🔝🔝🔝
