The tour was perfect. Our guides, Alena and Izak, were beyond outstanding. They took us both on and a bit off the beaten track in the Old City, and they were not just knowledgeable but lovely, friendly, and downright delightful. We will recommend them to all our family and friends who visit Israel, and next time we are here we will ask them for tours of other parts of Jerusalem and other parts of Israel that we are not particularly knowledgeable about. In short, we recommend them without hesitation. If we could give more than 5 stars, we would.

Moshe the guide was a friendly and knowledgeable elderly man, and was happy to visit with me some of the Jerusalem sights that do not belong to the standard tours, which otherwise have done a couple of times before. We visited the Church of St Peter in Gallicantu, which has also a nice model of the city of Jerusalem, then we visited the cistern of St Helena, the underground original street level at the Convent of the Sisters of Zion, and more. It was a pleasure!

Moses was an excellent guide, adapting to our needs and covered all the significant highlights. A wealth of knowledge and captivating.

omar is a very good driver. safe and very attentive. very nice car, clean and with all the comfort.

Hanoch is a great guide! Very interesting tour, includes all the highlights of Jerusalem!
