It was interesting to see the garden of Gethsemani, the Church of Nations and to visit the old city. Our guide was calm, she spoke and walked slowly because you can get lost in this maze. She answered questions well and speaks 5 languages! It was a very informative morning on 2 of the 4 different areas of the old town.

Very informative and worthwhile

The tour was extremely informative. Our guide was very knowledgeable about all facets of the old city. He was remarkable, with an amazingly warm, caring, and friendly personality! The stop at his friend’s store was not necessary as the Half off sale was on inflated prices. Overall this guide made it a very interesting experience! Thank you
