The experience was wonderful in every sense of the word. The guide, Rom, is an excellent person with a very good command of English and is passionate about culture and good humor. The tour exceeded my expectations, I loved the places and the journey. We visited the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth and wow it is a place full of meaning and religious iconography, I loved it. The part that I enjoyed the most of the trip was arriving in Galilee, visiting Lake Tiberias, Capernaum, the House of Saint Peter, but what I loved most about this tour was visiting the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes, it is a place full of mysticism and love. There are also many green parrots. The views during the trip are beautiful, it is a serene town full of nature, I loved the tour and I highly recommend it, I hope you enjoy it as I did. Thanks to Rom and the agency for this beautiful experience full of meaning and value through the life of Jesus of Nazareth

It was a very well organized and guided tour through the special places in Jerusalem. The friendly guide explained the historical, religious and cultural backgrounds in detail. The city was very busy and it was difficult to keep the large group together, but the guide did it very confidently. The lunch reserved for the group was in a beautiful restaurant with a fantastic view of the old town. The food was cheap and good. The tour is highly recommended. I did this tour just a few days before the terrible attacks on October 7, 2023.

Our guide Dan was open-minded and polite and impressed us with his extensive knowledge and local knowledge of Jerusalem. The visit to Bethlehem was also well organized and extremely informative. Even if the external circumstances were not ideal at times, the best was made of it and I think everyone was satisfied at the end of the day. Highly recommended!

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!

Superb visit to Jerusalem during the Orthodox Easter Holy Week. Our guide Liat was very pleasant and explained everything perfectly well in English and Spanish. I recommend
