The tour was excellent and very informative. We initially took the free tour from Jaffa Gate. We had heard the previous day there had been problems in other groups with guides so was a little apprehensive at first. However, Ryan was very enthusiastic, informative- took the time to give objective knowledge and information. We enjoyed it so much that we... More

I had a great tour with Amitai last week. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, had a balanced view of current affairs, and took the time to chat individually with everyone over the course of the day. He spent an extra 30 minutes with us beyond the allotted time, and took us to a few secret nooks (including a beautiful church, and... More

Ryan was a wonderful and personable guide with patience and connection to his diverse audience. He answered questions and kept us together. His passion and understanding of the history in a multicultural area were impressive. He encouraged additional tours but did not sell the company in an overdone manner. He will certainly see many in the group again!

Ryan was an excellent and very knowledgeable tour guide. He was very enthusiastic and friendly. The tour went about two hours and is a fabulous thing to do before going to explore the old city by yourself.

Ryan was really enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He took his time through the old city intro tour. Even gave amazing recommendations of things to eat along the way. I had been on many tours of the old city in the past. His definitely provided the best and most accurate perspective.

Arrived in Jerusalem after losing our guide book. We decided to go on a free tour to orientate ourselves. It was the best decision we could've made. Our tour guide was Yuval who was friendly, interesting and funny. He introduced us to the city; the history and culture and we had a fantastic day. Couldn't recommend the tour more! We... More

I did the free walking tour of Jerusalem (or "free", as I soon found out), and it was nice. The guide knew a lot, and it had the potential of being very enjoyable. There were a few factors however that I didn't like at all. One of them was the guide's knowledge of the city's Arab history, which was poor... More

Yariv was really excellent. He told us all lots of facts but in an interesting way. It was incredibly and unseasonably hot when we visited and he managed to keep us all interested (and shaded)until the end. I will be looking into similar tours in other cities.

Jeremy from Liverpool was an amazing tour guide. Not only was he smart and witty, he really knows his history. We never would have gone to the secret quarters inside the kotel if we were not with him. He shared knowledge that is just not available in guide books. The time flew, and we all felt we would have liked... More
