It was really an excellent tour, we enjoyed it a LOT. All the details you included in the tour, from the detailed history of Israel, to the van infrastructure to the beer at the end, it was a memorable experience. Menno, our guide and manager at the company, was very professional, polite, and conducted the tour with excellence. Among 7 tours in Israel, this one was definitely the best one.

This is the absolute best day trip you can choose from Tel Avi to Jerusalem. Our guide Itamar was fantastic - so knowledgeable, and also entertaining and organized. The smaller group and high quality bus transport was great. We learnt and saw so much. Lunch at the rooftop restaurant was delicious and cheap. Thanks for a brilliant day, it was the best thing we did on our trip.

Brilliant guide, thanks so much for an incredible day. This was the best tour! The smaller group made all the difference, I can see why is has much higher reviews than the other options. We learnt so much, and it was perfectly organized with a good pace and the right amount of info.

Everything fine, Ossie very good--informed, charming. The Dead Sea was a challenge for an older person. It was not nearly as pleasant as I remember it

Pick up right outside the ship and seamless travel at a nice constant pace
