We booked two tours through Egged. I chose Egged before reading any reviews so was concerned at some of the negativity. The reality was that the tours ran smoothly and we had good guides and saw everything we expected to see. We were very happy with both tours. Our first tour was to Jerusalem. With my 20 year old son... More

The most appalling travel organisation and customer service we've ever experienced. No answer to emails, no answer on the phone, and no show up for the excursion we paid for online. As a result: no excursion. The only thing that worked perfectly on their service was the credit card payment. We had to physically go to their "office" in Jerusalem... More

Thank you Egged Tours for an amazing trip. Your 4 day tour of Israel included all of the sites on my bucket list. The Jerusalem guide was very informative and entertaining. Masada and the Dead Sea were a mixture of history and beauty, the dead sea was the most relaxing experience that I've had in years. The guide in Caeserea... More

Very nice drivers and tour guide however if you booked these guys please be prepared for a "touch, put check mark and go" sorta tour. The trip to Bethlehem was worth it since our guide knew someone who knew someone so we can avoid the line and get into the birth place of Jesus however the trip to Jericho was... More

I really want to get in contact with these guys about the tour but they seem to want to avoid contact. Their email address rejects & they don't seem to answer their online request form. Sigh!

My son and I are from USA and book this tour online but BH is the tour provider. We were pick up at the Notre Dame hotel outside Damascus Gate. The overnight stay was in tel aviv for 2 nights. I would rate the hotel a 2* but because it was across the Sharaton so may be 3* for the... More

Did the tour to Masada and the Dead Sea, from Tel Aviv. Pickup was 15 min. late but no big deal. It's like an airline -- they have little buses picking up at hotels and taking you to the main bus at the "hub." I very much agree with two other reviewers that the Ahava cosmetics stop is a complete... More

I booked Egged for the Jerusalem Old and New Tour. They picked me up from my hotel and brought me to a central point, where I got on the bus for Jerusalem. My tour guide was Manesch? Not sure if I'm spelling that right. He was very entertaining, funny, and informative. He guided us through the walking tour by holding... More

Awful, awful, awful. Got collected at 7.15 for a tour to Masada and the Dead Sea. After going to a central Tel Aviv pick-up point, we waited for everyone to got on different coaches. Then stopped again in Jerusalem to pick people up there. Then stopped again at the Aheva cosmetic place (supposedly because passengers like to buy the product,... More
