    Havah was our guide for the day. We had a wonderful time with her touring Jerusalem. Havah shared her wealth of knowledge with us in a captivating way. It was fun learning about the history of Jerusalem and how things came to be. Our trip culminated with floating at the Dead Sea- the lowest place on earth! Amazing! I recommend anyone visiting Israel to look up Havah for their tour.

    This tour was definitely well worth doing. Our tour guide Ryan was so nice and extremely knowledgeable. You could see it wasn't just a job to him. We were taken to Bethlehem first to see all the sights. The Church of the Nativity was amazing in particular. I have difficulty walking but Ryan was excellent at pacing the tour. After lunch we went to Jerusalem and that was even more amazing . The Church of the Sepulchre was the highlight for me here. I took so many pics and had to go over them the next day to refresh my memory of what we had seen. Once again I can't praise Ryan enough. The next day we were also booked on another tour of Nazareth and Capernium but unfortunately we were switched buses and although it was good too, we missed Ryan. This is a good well organised tour company and I would recommend them.

    Zel and his team run an excellent Jerusalem private tour. He is VERY knowledgeable on a wide array of topics, including history of the city.

    Tours are fully customizable and we had a great time hanging out with Zel learning about the old city.

    In May 2022 my wife and I booked a private half day tour for my birthday. We had a great time! Hi

    Interesting different perspective to life in this area. Our guide Don Haleseh was informative on the issues but equally light hearted and entertaining.

    The weather didn’t help our visit to Ramallah, but we were fortunate the rain had stopped for the historical Jericho / the baptism site and visiting Bethlehem.

    The food was good and plentful (even for Vegans) and there was plenty of time to buy some gifts in Bethlehem. Run across the road to Stars and Bucks coffee for a mug!

    Despite recent troubles we didn’t feel unsafe. The traffic was appalling due to heightened security at check points but this didnt ruin the day.

    A wonderful and perfect half day tour to Bethlehem and Jericho.
    Our tour guide in Bethlehem, Abood aka ‘Uncle Abood’ was incredibly knowledgeable about the places we visited.
    Raed or Raza (Sp?) our driver was also very professional and explained all we needed to know to enjoy our day.
    Highly recommend.
    No meal stops so bring light snacks.

    From the Israel side I would rate this 2 stars. From the Jordanian side I’d rate this 5 stars. Luckily we’re in Jordan most of the time! In Israel we were left at the border with minimal instruction and we had to figure it out on our own. Here are instructions for future travelers with this tour group!

    Once you arrive at the border to go from Israel to Jordan, you will enter the offices they instruct you to go into. From there there are two lines: the one to the right is for Israeli citizens only, and the one to the left is where you go to pay your Israeli exit fee and also exchange currency to Jordanian Dinar (I suggest NOT to exchange here since there will be another opportunity to exchange from the Jordan side; for example the exchange rate here would get you 88% whereas the exchange rate on the Jordan side will give you 96% so it’s your call; the tour guide pays the fees first to the Jordanian government and then he collects the fees on the bus from the travelers after you guys have started the tour). After you pay your fee with credit card or cash, make a 180 and you will see two machines just like the ones you saw arriving at the Tel Aviv airport. Scan your passport face down and you will receive a border ticket. With the receipt from the border exit fee, border ticket from the passport machine and your actual passport you can proceed to the guy at the kiosk that verifies your documents. From there you are done!

    Now comes the actual tour part. Absolutely no complaints. The tour guide was amazing, food was all buffet style and also amazing, Petra was amazing, and the two extra stops were amazing too. The Bedouin style hotel was incredible and a unique experience. You get more buffet dinner and breakfast and then lounge in a big hall where they play live music and serve hot (very) sweet tea. Return to the Jordanian border was seamless.

    The return back to the Israeli side was actually surprisingly quick. All of our tour group made it back across quickly without any hitches. We arrive to find no bus waiting for us. We called and they said the bus was already there. Then we searched all across the compound and the bus was not there. We would call again and no answer. The bus arrived maybe 30-45 minutes later. Some proper communication on the Israeli side would’ve been nice!

    Avi was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and fun. He took us to a store in the Palestinian Territory in Bethlehem that was operated by Christians who we were told were a minority in the Palestinian Territory. Israeli citizens are typically not permitted to enter the area so it is predominantly Muslim. We felt perfectly safe and this isn’t a commentary on anything other than the makeup of the community which I really had never considered. He took us to the church of the Nativity. It was incredible. They have an open area where you can see the original floor from nearly 2000 years ago. You can also stand in a line to see where it is thought that Jesus was born. We got extremely fortunate and Avi was able to get our small group in through a back door.

    Next we gleefully headed back to Jerusalem. We toured Mount Olive and learned the interesting history there.

    We finished up in the Old City.

    We saw the Western Wall. I have mobility issues and use an electric mobility scooter. If I hadn’t had those issues we would have gone to touch it.

    We were shown the Church of the Holy Sepulcher where it is thought that Jesus was crucified. The tour there was interesting.

    We had a nice lunch. There were certainly lots of shops in the Old City. It was an experience. Bring shekels.

    We saw the Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Armenian Quarters in the old city. It was interesting.

    Avi was full of information and very willing to accommodate my abilities. I highly recommend his tour. He has a very good van which is clean. He was a very conscientious driver. Very affable and could strike up a conversation with anyone. He has a degree in history and a 2 year training (I think that’s what he said - years) to be a guide.

    My husband and I did the private walking tour of Jerusalem and Aaron was a fantastic guide. He was a fountain of knowledge and taught us many things in our 4 hours together. I highly recommend this tour!

    We took the Jerusalem Walking Tour and we were fortunate to meet Shimon who was our tour guide. With his historical timeline and the Bible passages as references provided us with clear and in depth understanding of the significance of each site we visited. It was an amazing experience.

    This Jeep Tour was fascinating, the tour guide very friendly (he made mint tea for all in the middle of mountains), and the historic sites were breathtaking.

    Wow, that is the only word to explain this tour. First day we crossed the border traveled to Mount Nebo and saw the mosaic artists at work and enjoyed a traditional lunch with the day ending at a Bedouin camp sleeping in a tent. Day 2 we visited Petra with a morning guided tour to the Treasury and lunch. That afternoon we took a donkey ride to the Monastery followed by a tour of the palaces and a horse ride back to the gate. Don’t skip the donkey ride or the horse ride once in a lifetime experiences. Then a final night at the Bedouin camp with a traditional dinner. Day 3 travel the Kings Highway to Wadi Rum see this unique land from a four wheel drive tour and take 20 minute camel ride finish with a Bedouin lunch and back to Jerusalem. I can’t say enough good things about this tour it was wonderful. Do it you won’t regret it.

    We had group tour four years ago and felt that we missed many of the important sites in Jerusalem. So this trip we rented an apartment in the Christian Quarter for 8 nights venturing out of the old city to see the Holocaust and the Israel National museums.

    For this reason we contacted Gary several months prior to our February trip back to Israel and contracted him for two full days just for my wife and me. This proved to be a great decision as we freely discussed the places of our interests and we had Gary’s full attention. I must admit we did a lot of walking and stairs, but the time and multitude of historical information was well worth the cost and physical challenges.

    All-in-all we highly recommend utilizing Gary, especially for individual couples or small groups because of his personal attention.

    We got amazing tour guide Andrea who was very intelligent and informative in historical and religious aspects of the old city. During the tour we have learned about 3 main religious and visited 4 quarters of Jerusalem.
    For us the most emotional part of a tour was visiting Golgotha Hill after a walk through Via Dolorosa . I got a feeling so special at this place, I can definitely say that once in your life you should visit Jerusalem.

    Thank you Andrea for such an unforgettable experience in Jerusalem! You are definitely recommend for everyone who wants to know old city!

    Cheers from US
