Our guide was excellent - very informative, friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. The free 2-hour tour is a wonderful way to learn about the history and the sites and is a perfect way to start your visit. We only had one day to spend in Jerusalem, and this tour allowed us to really make the most of it.

While I usually like to find my own way around, by the end of my week in Jerusalem and surrounds, I had realised that there were sites that I was simply not going to manage to see and experience without a guide. While the Old Town is small it is very tricky to navigate, and visiting sites such as the... More

Allan was a superb tour guide. So much so after completing a free tour of the Old City in the morning we signed up for a paid tour of Mount of Olives in the afternoon. Allan was informative, knowledgeable and interesting. Highly recommend.

I understand most people had a great time booking this tour and I feel bad giving them a poor rating. The problem was that our guide, Amitai managed to turn us completely off. In his introduction, he claimed a couple of times that we "had to pay a tip" of 50 shekels in the end of the tour and that... More

We took the free tour in the Old city and were very pleased. Ryan was an excellent guide, both knowledgeable and interesting. He gave us the right amount of info and showed us a lot of places we would otherwise have missed. Two hours was perfect. Highly recommended!

Originally planning to join the free city walk, we decided instead to take the Holy City Tour. Scheduled for 4 hours, it became 5 1/2 - but it was worth every minute and every shekel, Allan was a very competent and nice guide, who knew a lot of all the backgrounds and could tell a good story about it.

We did three Jerusalem tours. The first two were with Ryan, (free and Mt. Of Olives) and the third with Yoni. Ryan is well versed and entertaining and gives easily understood explanations. The third tour was with Yoni. It was the Holy City Tour and included the Temple Mount. In retrospect, I would want to go there with no one... More

Our guide was Yariv Yaffe and IMO he did a great job and he was up to the task. Very entertaining and at the same time informative and educational. Keep up the good job, Yariv!!!
