We needed to do a 45 minute walk to the single pick up point in Tel Aviv, however, the advantage was that once on board, there were no more time consuming pick-ups. Guide was very knowledgable and professional. His English was a little rusty. He sang a Jewish prayer in an Eastern style, which was beautiful and moving. A great trip

It is a true unforgettable experience For life, and I would like to return to Israel to continue knowing all the beautiful, wonderful corners and with a lot of history, it is a privilege to have been in this very sacred land. Thanks to the guide Yuval for being so special and treating us with love.
