          Golan view is certainly fascinating
          The views from the Golan Heights are amazing. You can see over Sea of Galilee, where the Golan Heights dominates the outlook. There are lots of strategic factors, including religion. The Golan Heights are in the north-east of Israel, it's well worth a tour.

          Horrible experience with Viator
          Horrible tour to Valle de Guadalupe We bought a tour to Valle de Guadalupe, from a supposed “Tour company.” They sent us 4 people plus the driver in a 4 persons sedan car, my daughter had to go in the middle for 6 hours. The driver was talking on the phone back and forth, when I told him that I thought it was dangerous for us to do it, he said that he had a lot of experience driving 8 wheelers, so he didn't stop. I don't think it's allowed to take tourists this way. So unprofessional, didn't know anything about the area, he just transported us to the destination in the most uncomfortable and dangerous way. At the last point, the vineyard where they gave us a cheese board, he sat at our table and loudly talked on her cell phone, taking away the only pleasant experience of the entire day. What he did share with us, was all the dangerous places in the area. Although the driver tried, this company is not a professional tour company. We brought a bigger and safer truck, if we had known how bad it would be, we would have left on our own.

          Bad experience!
          This tour was badly organized .First we waited outside the hotel for an hour before we were picked up .No one knew where to go .We thought we were finally starting the trip .But we were taken to this hilly top where we waited another hour in a dingy cafe . The tour was rushed as it was getting late .For lunch everyone is taken to this awful resturant with chaos ,substandard food and fighting crowds . Before going into the resturant you have to go thru a shop and they push coupons to you to buy super expensive products . Guide did not have much knowledge or rather one sided knowledge .We were rushed thru Masada which was the main attraction .I asked him a couple of questions breaking his monologue. He did not like it and was very rude . Do not take this tour .If you do bring your own food . It was a waste of money .

          Natural beauty and historical sites in the Heights
          The Golan Heights is an area of outstanding natural beauty and intriguing historical sites It was captured from Syria during the Six Day War in 1967 and is now part of Israel. The Golan Heights is of great strategic importance, it has a commanding view of the northern Galilee. Apart from its military value, the Golan is a fertile agricultural region. The trip from Jerusalem to the Golan takes around two hours by car.

          Holy sites appeal deeply to believers
          The Western Wall, often called the Wailing Wall, is sacred to Jews; other denominations are also welcome. It is adjacent to the wall of the Second Temple, which is all that remains of the Temple. The 4th Century Church of the Sepulcher is the site where Christians traditionally gather to commemorate the site of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Holy Sepulcher is also an important destination on the Via Dolorosa, Christ's Way of Suffering. These sites appeal deeply to believers.

          This is a wonderful tour and I pray that Israel be able to offer this again in the near future.
          Note: We went on this tour on 10/5, 36 hours before the Hamas attack. We really enjoyed the drive from Jerusalem and the stops that we made. Masada was a very interesting sight to behold. My only suggestion is to cut the time spent in Masada by about 30 minutes so you can spend that extra time at the Dead Sea. We got less than 30 minutes there, which was not enough. We floated in the sea for about five minutes and then had to get out and shower off to leave.

          Trip operator cancelled last minute and was not helpful
          This trip was cancelled haphazardly at the last minute, and the trip operator was not helpful. As such, we did not get to experience this trip. Getting 1 star because 0 stars was not an option.

          Dangerous and not reliable
          I was picked up 1 hour later from the hotel During the waiting hour I didn't receive any text or email saying if the tour is cancelled or I still will be picked up After one hour we where dropped off near Western wall and where regrouping again which took another hour During the drive the driver of the bus and the tour guide where discussing the current political citation in Israel (I think it was in Hebrew or Arabic ) and the driver while driving was showing YouTube clips to the guide It was in time of unrest in Israel before the terrorists attack by Hamas We were brought for lunch to overpriced cafeteria with horrible food where they had beef stew on display but served you meat balls The most horrible and unpleasant experience during my whole trip

          Trip to masada and dead sea
          Dan Porges was the best tour guide, he was very informative, this is our first tour in Jerusalem and we learned a lot from him. We really enjoyed this tour to masada and dead sea, everything was well organized, the ruins in masada national park are amazing, swimming in the dead sea was fun, we floated with no effort, science is proved with no doubt, we are happy we joined this tour.

          Brilliant
          Our favourite time on the tour was with our tour guide Avi. Took us into the old city. He was knowledgeable and understanding. I would like to know if Avi is safe. With all the horrors that’s the enfolding in his country. He was a caring man.

          Dan Porges was a great guide at Masada
          Great day, well-organized. The bus was not at the pick up hotel right when it was supposed to be, maybe 10 minutes late, which made us nervous, but they eventually arrived. Dan was a fun and knowledgable guide. The place where you go to the Dead Sea is a sort of private/public beach - a lot of stairs down to the sea, not the cleanest place I've gone into the Dead Sea from, but it was fine. Overall, recommended.

        I took four tours with Bein Harim (booked through Tourist Israel). I'll review them separately because the quality was so different with each of them. General notes- they never picked me up at my hotel and they were always AT LEAST 15 minutes late (sometimes an hour). They're also always bilingual which is problematic for the reasons below.

        Caesarea, Haifa, Rosh Hanikra, Akko- My pickup time was 5:50am from Jerusalem. I walked the 10 minutes to the pickup point and waited outside for a while. At 6:05 I asked the receptionist at the random hotel if she could call. She got in touch with someone who asked to speak with me. He asked if I would like to go on a different tour instead because no one else is leaving from Jerusalem for that tour. I said no because I was completely booked all week and Caesarea was a must-see for me. They sent a taxi at around 6:30 am, 40 minutes from my pickup time. When it's that early in the morning, that extra 40 minutes would have been great. They never had any intention of sending someone to get me, which is alarming.
        Guide- Jacob. He was so focused on making jokes I didn't feel I got much out of the tour. The tour was bilingual, English and German, but at least 70% of it was in German (even though there was one German family who indicated English was fine for them). It took double the time to get through the sights and it just seemed like he was trying to practice his German. He would start sentences in English, finish in German, and never go back to explain what he said in English. He was too focused on his shtick making fun of people to actually tell us anything about Akko the Crusader city. We didn't eat until after 2:30 pm which meant I left my hotel at 5:30 before breakfast and didn't eat until 9 hours later. And it was the worst meal I'd ever had. I asked when we were going to eat because I'm type 1 diabetic and it's necessary information, and he made a big joke to everyone that he'll make sure I'm the first one to get food. It was just annoying and embarrassing.

        Jerusalem Old City Tour- Another bilingual tour, this time, French. Unpleasant as usual but in includes a good tour of the things you want to see in Jerusalem and the Holocaust Museum, which is a must-see.
        Guide- Liat. She was really nice and informative. She made the hot day enjoyable. My only qualm would be that she was constantly making us wait in the sun for stragglers. She could have wrangled the French people a bit better.

        Masada/Dead Sea- Masada is amazing and the Dead Sea is eh, but that has nothing to do with Bein Harim. When you get to the Dead Sea, do not eat in that restaurant at the top. The food is way overpriced. There's a falafel stand down by the beach at the "lowest bar in the world."
        Guide- Charlie. He was wonderful. Told us everything we needed to know about Masada and made it fun. It was over 100 degrees up at Masada and he was careful to move us into the shade for the informational portions. You can tell he really cares about his job and his country. Couldn't ask for a better guide. It was a bilingual tour but once he realized the two French women were fine in English (as they indicated) he kept it to English and only spoke French if they needed clarification.

        Nazareth, Capernaum, Sea of Galilee- Do not do this tour from Jerusalem. My pickup was at 5:50am-6:20am (thirty minute pickup window?) and the bus finally came around 6:15, so I waited outside, in the dark by myself from 5:50. We ended up getting to Tel Aviv to the meetup point at 7am, an hour early. There was no reason to pick us up at 5:50am when it's a Saturday so it's Shabbat and no one is on the road, and it never took more than an hour from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv anyway, never mind 2 hours as they budgeted. So we had to waste an hour in Tel Aviv before we could pick up the people touring from there. We got to the pickup point and the bus meeting us was late. We didn't get to the first stop until 10:15am, so over 4 hours from my pickup time. Which brings me to the guide.
        Guide- Eli. We very much started off on the wrong foot. At 8 am, when I had been traveling for over 2 hours and we were sitting on the side of the road in Tel Aviv, I asked him when we would be getting to Nazareth. He basically told me that if I expected to get to Nazareth from Jerusalem right away I would be disappointed (4 hours is not exactly right away...). He was super unpleasant about it and didn't even apologize for having us lollygag around Tel Aviv. He gave me pretty serious attitude. I asked to speak to his supervisor to see if I could be put on a different tour, but he just offered to talk to him. That would only make it worse so I just got on the bus and sat there. On the way to Nazareth, we basically got a rundown of Arab cities in Jerusalem and how the situation with Jews and Arabs is not black and white. I was expecting to hear a little bit about Jesus of Nazareth, since he's the reason every single person on the tour was going there. We didn't get one piece of info about his teachings or his life. We arrived at Nazareth and were shepherded into a souvenir store. By 10:15 am, we finally reached the church. Once we were there, Eli was good about explaining things and gave us a sufficient amount of time. Oh, this one was bilingual Spanish and again, it was pretty miserable. Two women repeatedly refused to get to the bus on time, making us wait for 30 minutes for them at one point. Eli should have been on top of them. It was beyond rude. Eli did apologize for his earlier behavior and gave me the lunch for free, which was nice and went a long way toward making me feel a little better about the tour. Capernam was really cool and he did a good job explaining. Once we got to the Sea of Galilee, our last stop, we waited again for the two women and it made us even later getting home.

        TL;DR- Lots of timing problems. Guides hit or miss. Every single tour is bilingual. Waste a TON of time.

        Bein Harim is the best! Prompt, communicative, organized, reasonably priced with excellent guides. They make sure to account for everyone, and are willing to help with special situations such as needing to get dropped off somewhere other than the normal stops. Dorit, Daniel, and Tomar were all above average guides. They are well read, know their history both Christian and Jewish, and easy to talk to. Having never been to Israel, I learned so much about the people, the country, and the history. They were willing to share personal stories that added even more to their descriptions. I would go with them again, for sure.

        It was a perfect tour for me. Full of history, religion and politics. Everything that I like to know about. The guides were excelent, but I make a special congrats to Ami (former colonel of the Golani Division) - he knows everything about the military strugle of Israel to become a country and gave us unforgetable lessons about it; also a great applause to Yoav Malachi, that took us to Nazareth, for his competency and knowledge; and for Amr Koovar (??? - they should send us an email with their names) that took us to Haifa, Acre and Hosh Hanikra on 25/11. This guy is a crazy one. Energetic and full of opinions. One of the best guides a tourist could get.
