    Great tour of Jerusalem! From the moment we texted them the first time, till the moment we finished our tour, everything went smoothly. We were pretty limited with our time window for the tour, but after much back and forth, Smart Tour were able to accommodate. Josh, our guide was patient, (having to snap pictures of us everywhere we went) thorough in his explanations, and overall, very professional, yet friendly. If you're looking for a fun family or friends activity/tour in Jerusalem look no further, SMART TOUR is the one, book them, without hesitation!!

    Sasha is top tier, he made my experience in Israel amazing. He has an incredible depth of knowledge on all things Israel and provides memorable details in a hilarious way. Next time I come back to Israel I will only book with Sasha because he is truly one of a kind.

    Ines is a great perfect guide, she permit us (a group of 7 Italian colleagues) to love every little part of Jerusalem.
    She permit us to discover the some secrets part of the old city and to see at the Armenian ceremony.

    My husband and I just returned from Israel and couldn’t wait to write this review about Ephraim Shore. We have been to Israel many times but this was the best visit by far and that was due to Ephraim. He checks all the necessary boxes – knowledgeable about Israel & Torah, friendly, flexible, funny. But what makes him unique is his ability to draw you into the fabric of the country and the people. We didn’t feel like tourists going to the expected sites but like fellow citizens of our Jewish brothers & sisters. It’s hard to pin down how Ephraim does this - It’s a combination of his own Aliyah, his training in teaching Jews about their history & heritage, the fact that he seems to know everyone in Israel, plus the special sauce of his personality. In any event, we left feeling closer to the country than ever before and intimately entwined with the people. We’ve already booked our trip to Israel for next year and Ephraim as our guide! We recommend Ephraim 100%.

    My wife and I have done and seen literally everything their is to do in the old city, having been to Israel countless times in our lives. This activity is truly unique.....a very different perspective to tour Jerusalem.

    The tour started in a parking lot just outside the city walls- first we rode outside the walls touring the new city (Yemin Moshe, old railroad station now a busy outdoor mall), then riding to the old city, visiting all four quarters in the dead of night- amazing! All the time we felt totally safe, our tour guide (Gal) was informative and encouraging. He showed us parts of the old city we had never seen before, was extremely friendly, and spoke fluent english.

    Some things to be aware of.....even though it is called “midnight”, it actually starts at 9:00 pm and ends about 11:30, which was actually better for us. Although the ride is fine for beginners, there are a few pretty steep hills, my two daughters occasionally got off to walk there bikes bc a few hills were too difficult for them to pedal, but again, not such a big deal over the course of the evening. Some riding is in the street, but Gal was very attentive in telling us beforehand the best and safest way, no worries there was almost no traffic.

    We had a glitch- At the about 90% completion mark, my daughters derailer broke. Gad was chivalrous and switched bikes with her after lowering his seat, as he ran the broken bike the rest of the way while my daughter rode, and nothing lost for us.

    The tour is somewhat expensive, but in my opinion (especially if u enjoy bike riding) is definitely worth the vacation splurge because of its uniqueness and enjoyability.
    All in all, we loved the experience. As they say in Israel, kol hakavod!

    On our 2nd day in Israel & Tel Aviv we did the bike tour. It was a great introduction to the city. We got to cross much of the city and see many of the sites quickly while still being able to enjoy being part of the city. We were staying near the Carmel Market, so riding up the beautiful bike path of Rothschild Street, discussing some of the architecture along the street, through Rabin Square, to the Yarkon River, the Tel Aviv Port and back towards Jaffa was an easy ride for the kids, educational and enjoyable. It gave us good ideas for how to adjust our plans for subsequent days too.

    We took the same approach to Jerusalem a several days later doing the bike tour with the same great guide. Jerusalem was harder because of the hills. The hills ended up being more of a challenge for us adults and the kids really took to the challenge. Our guide was great in making adjustments to ensure we all stayed together. Jerusalem definitely seems like less of a bike-friendly place, riding down narrow switchback sidewalk paths, but we still found nice places to go: the old city, german quarter, Machaneh Yehudah Market, & train station market. I would have liked to hit up the Knesset, but the adult's struggle with the hills made that a challenge which is why our guide adjusted the schedule.

    We really enjoyed the bike tour as part of the family trip. It was a fantastic way to break up some of the "come walk through these old buildings" trip with something more active and athletic. Our guide adjusted to how we were feeling and responding, and a month later we're back home and still talking about how much we enjoyed our visit.

    This is the best way to see Jerusalem! Get up early, beat the crowds and learn a ton about this wonderful city. Phil was awesome and offered a ton of history about the city. Biking allows you to cram in a ton!

    This such a wonderful organization. The coordinators are so kind, and put a lot of work into making each event successful. Every event is inexpensive and accessible, which allows for anyone to have a genuine learning experience and adventure in Israel.
    My favorite events so far have been a hike in Wadi Jahir and an Iftar Shabbat.

    Rotem was incredibly knowledgeable and the tour really made us understand the political situation between the Israelis and the Palestinians so much better. We got to see things most tourists, and even Israelis, don't have access to. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
