    Ehud picked us up at a private residence in Natanya for our full day tour of Nazareth and Galilee. He was punctual and had an amazing day planned for us. His car was luxurious, spacious and very well kept. He kept us ahead of the large crowds and made sure we had space to see the sites and hear his knowledgeable and thorough explainations. We had a lovely lunch and were able to try the St Peter fish which was delicious. He surprised us at the end of the tour with a trip to the oldest kibbutz in Israel and then delivered us to our hotel in Jerusalem. An amazing day and an amazing guide! We highly recommend him.

    The tour guide was ok. It is worth to visit Nazaret, Capernaum once in a lifetime, but it is not real I think! People hundreds of years ago built some temple somewhere and the told us that was the house of Maria or Jozef, etc, but is is not real I think. If you want to see real things go to Jerusalem: Western Wall, Western Wall Tunnel, City of David, Siloam, Bethesda. Massada.

    This really packed a lot into one day. Like many places in Israel, the sites were churches built on the site where something is said to have happened (e.g., the annunciation, Joseph's carpenter shop, the miracle of the loaves and fishes). So it was visiting a lot of churches (4 if I remember right). We stopped for lunch at a packed restaurant with a parking lot full of tour busses. The Jordan River site was equally packed. A positive was the beautiful scenery driving by the Sea of Galilee. Also, the tour was very well run and organized. Just know that there are a lot of crowds (not the tour group's fault) and mostly visiting churches.

Well-guided trip by 2 older men in a modern minibus. During the trip a lot was told about our whereabouts and about the country. The stay at the individual stations was relatively short, but it was perfectly sufficient for us. The food (fish fillet) in the St. Peters restaurant was really great. Salad buffet, one of three main dishes and coffee for only 80 shekels. At the end of the trip, the two tour guides even tried to get us a free taxi so that we could safely get back to our accommodation from the central bus stop. Highly recommended!

I was picked up sharp on time, all was organised beautifully and out driver / tour guide was very kind and informative.
