We had Daniel and Ahmed as our guide and driver. Of different faiths but worked together so well in serving Bein Hamin clients. Great representatives of the employing company. We travelled for Sukkot not realising it was also the main Israeli holiday period when schools closed for a week. Roads were so busy - blocked sometimes, or often at a snail’s pace. They worked together to find us the best route back and providing an unscheduled stop for clients’ needs. They were the face of Bein Hamin to the clients and they did a superb job. Would like them to know how grateful we are.

Daniel was very thorough and explained the facts and history very well. The Driver Ahmed managed the difficulties of the traffic well and consideration of breaks and stops were timed well and we were updated through out the trip on arrival times. It was a long day, but interesting, with time to rest and relax on the last part of the Jreturn ourney to Jerusalem.

Excellent excursion. The guide (Abraham) was excellent. Friendly and generous in his comments. The organization of the excursion was well established. Lunch was excellent, in a beautiful restaurant. the fish from Saint Pierre is excellent. There is a buffet where salad and condiments are served.

Orion our guide was exceptional. He was giving details clearly. Our driver was also commendable for keeping us safe the entire trip. The itinerary was good enough. Recommended one from Jerusalem!
