We were picked up from the hotel on time, then a little chaos came up. The collection point for all day tours was a bit confusing and the staff chaotic. We sat in our bus after about 3/4 hours and then we went to Jerusalem. Our city guide (unfortunately I don't remember the name) was very good. He guided around 40 people through the city, always counting whether everyone was back. Explained a lot and we also saw a lot. What needs to be considered on the tour is that there is no return trip with the group. We had to organize the trip home to Tel Aviv on our own. It was a great day.
A nice day with a very experienced guide. Always took the time to answer our questions in detail. When we were unable to stay as long as suggested at the last stop, he led us to hidden places where tourists normally don't go. He continued to improvise to give us an unforgettable experience and he succeeded. Thank you Judah.
The journey took a long time. 2.5 hours to Jerusalem. We had the 1/2 day tour and then enjoyed the free time. Return trip with tram and bus no problem and quite cheap. 16 NIS per person from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv.
A bit tense atmosphere with the guide and the group with some. . But it was mandatory to keep the schedule. Because otherwise people only care about themselves otherwise!
I recommend this trip, very important for Jesus history. Also guide Moshe was very nice and explained a lot of my questions.
