Israel was great, but transfer to Jordanian tour bus was slow. Beware that Petra is a LOT of walking including walking "up" on the return. Could have used more time.... BEWARE: The young man who led a horse a short part only at the beginning of the pathway down, wanted $50 US dollars instead of the agreed $5 (which the... More

Both tours were excellent except for no air conditioning on one of the tours home. Other than that would highly recommend.

Overall I liked Egged Tours immensely. On the two day-trips I took during a recent visit to Israel, I had two very different yet equally good guides. They were smart, interesting, respectful, and funny. The itinerary was, for me, a nice blend of variety and down time. Okay, in a perfect world, I'd have many more weeks in the Holy... More

Norbert was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Masada is a must see for anyone going to Israel. Not far from Jerusalem. Dead Sea was great.

Eyal was an outstanding guide. He knew the areas, used excellent grammar and pronunciation, smoothly switched between English, Spanish, and Hebrew. He easily answered questions outside the standard speech and he did a very good job keeping us on schedule. The hotel pickup and transportation to Jerusalem was great. I was less pleased with the transportation from Jerusalem to the... More

Disappointed in the guides on both tours. Not well organized. Provided some interesting facts but occasionally missed the overall description. After reading some of the reviews we have decided to go with Egged Tours since we only had a short time in Israel. Both guides fell short of our expectations.

amazing guide, very precise and clear, and bilingual. The original plan was to go to masada, but as masada was closed, we went to qumram instead. We were also lucky to see Jerusalem under snow on the way to the desert :)

Awesome experience and great guide. Couldn't have asked more of our guide-Yoav. Very knowledgeable, great sense of humor, great coordination of logistics, great explanations, and great company. Truly a once in a lifetime experience that was made special by our amazing guide. Highly recommend. Chad
