What to expect
Leave your Jerusalem hotel by air-conditioned coach and head for the Mount of Olives, just east of Old Jerusalem. Admire the panoramas from here over the city and the Dome of the Rock. Pass the Garden of Gethsemane, where it’s held that Jesus prayed before his arrest. Next, visit Old Jerusalem to view the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) and Via Dolorosa, where Jesus is thought to have walked to Calvary. See some of the stations of the cross and view the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built on the believed crucifixion site. Then, pass Jerusalem’s Byzantine-era main street (cardo) before driving on to Bethlehem. Here, visit the Church of the Nativity to see where Jesus is believed to have been born, and discover the adjoining Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches and Manger Square—Bethlehem’s spiritual heart and home to the Mosque of Omar. Your tour concludes at your Jerusalem hotel.

This tour was soo good! Our tour guide, Yaov, was really nice and made the group (<15 people) feel engaged. The tour felt well prepared and we were able to go to all the key sites. We also had time to go souvenir shopping and go to a fun café for a bathroom and coffee break. This was my first time in Israel and I learnt a lot and felt safe. Overall I'm really happy I went on this tour and would recommend!

Super moving tour as a Christian. Jerusalem is a fantastic place with unbelievable vibes + the number of information depends on how much you are willing to digest for such an important place for all beliefs for centuries. Avi managed to make it fun and super insightful. I definitely recommend this tour that I took pretty much last minute. Very good value for money.

Shaked our tour guide was Amazing, very knowledgable indeed. We had a fantastic day , he took us to the best vantage spots to take photos,
Disappointed with choice of restaurant for lunch, the place was gloomy and food looked unappetising, however the restaurant around the corner was bright with great views and excellent food. We also paid 1/4 of the price including beer. that was the in,y dissapointment as the four was great

Thanks Kerry for sharing this 5 star rave review of your tour with Zahi. He deserves your acknowledgement for the excellent and professional job he does with his travelers. Providing interesting informative commentary and with his engaging persona and passion. Lunch stop as a group is recommended however not mandatory, people who go off to eat elsewhere ,certainly can, at their own responsibility to return to the group on time etc. We eat a restaurant that can cater for groups, sometimes nearby places are full.We have a specific shedule and this location takes care of us as a group.(You can we are sure ,undesrtand this as for us as the tour operator we need the least possible complicating logisitic that can cause delay..)

Yoav Malachi, our tour guide, lead us on an excellent tour of both Jerusalem and Bethlehem. His understanding of culture, history, and language is top drawer. He was helpful with those having questions regarding culture and history. He successfully navigated through the various cultures represented on the tour, and answered the questions of tour participants leaving them satisfied and smiling. Will look for him on my next tour. Well done Yoav.

Istamar Buk was a very good guide! After visiting Bethlehem we went to Jerusalem . He took us around the old city . We visite the church of the sepulchre. We follow the via Dolorosa and finally we visit the western wall. He knew really a lot about the history of all the important places, what made the tour an unforgettable experience.

We booked this tour through tour hotel. We had seven people in our party. The fee was pricey but we agreed. We met at 06:40 and were met on time by our tour bus or so we thought. We were taken to a meeting point where we waited to meet up with other tourists. I believe we wasted a lot of time for the convenience of the tour company. Our tour guide was fine but we definitely felt rushed during our tour of Jerusalem. When we finished our tour of Jerusalem we had to wait for four new tourists to join our tour before we could head to Bethlehem. This was a waste of our time. We had been rushed through our tour only to wait for more tourists. Next we drove to Bethlehem where we were only allowed to visit the church of the Nativity. We were then encouraged to shop at a souvenir shop to support a Christian Bookshop. Only then were we encouraged to linger and shop all we want. We left Bethlehem at 3:30 in the afternoon. We had to return tourists to Jerusalem and then stop off at several hotels before we finally got to our hotel at 6:45pm. I felt like this tour company did not respect our time. One gets the feeling that we are on vacation and that we have nothing but time to wasted and waste we did! The ride home was frustrating. We spent 2/3 of our day in vans. It left me feeling angry at the end of the day. Not worth what we paid for the tour.

Dear Ahokiegirl, We are regretful to read that you felt your time was wasted and at the end of the day felt dissatisfied. Indeed there are complex transport logistics in executing tours to different destinations. We need to gather at the central meeting point so that you don't drive around the entire city picking up every passenger. This is a time-saver, and although we try our utmost to avoid this it can occur sometimes. Our operating system is trying since our return to operations after Covid 19 to maximize efficiency in moving travelers from place to place, safely and promptly. At the end of the tour day, it can be cumbersome, but here too people need to be dropped off at their hotels, an additional time aspect. We are glad you were happy with the guide. We do stop for refreshments in Bethlehem. We will certainly reiterate the time slot schedule to guide on this matter. Best, Bein Harim team

Itamar Buk is the best tour guide I had ever. I learned a lot of fascinating and interesting things about Jerusalem. He adapted explanations to us in order to be very understandable. Our group was very mixed ( US, Pérou, France, Brésil...) and Itamar made every people in a very confortable mood. So thanks to him!!

We have taken a lot of tours but this one far exceeded any of them. Our tour guide, Hava Dorany, was outstanding. Hopefully you will be fortunate to reserve her when you visit Israel. She is a walking encyclopedia! Everywhere we went people knew her and gave us special treatment. Our day with her was the high point of our trip!
