Picked up on time, the trip was good and the tour guide was very understandable. We saw a lot in a short time, which was also very tiring. Sometimes there was too much information for the short time, so that we could only look at the visits superficially. During this tour they also took us to a souvenir shop which we thought was consuming unnecessary time. Which is also a shame that this tour does not offer a return trip.

Very comfortable bus and guide was excellent. We had a family on board that was disrespectful to our guide because they whispered loundly to each other when he was trying to speak. They had to be hushed on several occasions and it was distracting. One member of their group had a small dog in her bag/purse. Although the dog was cute, there are certain Holly places the dog was not allowed and this was again a distraction from the tour. Overall, I’d recommend this tour. Great way to see Jerusalem’s highlights on a 6 hour tour.

The most important points are included in the tour. It is a pity that there is no return transfer from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv and that it is relocated independently. With the taxi (50 shekels) to the Central Bus Station and back to Tel Aviv (16 shekels) you can catch a glimpse of the new Jerusalem.
