      Menno was great!
      We did a tour to the Dead Sea in the morning and then to Jerusalem in the afternoon. Menno was a great guide. He did a great job telling the history of Israel and of the specific places we visited. His insider knowledge of the best places to stop in Jerusalem was invaluable. Thanks Menno!

      Totally recommend
      The tour was amazing. Our guide, Nadia, was wonderful. She kept everyone in the group engaged and did not lose steam. She answered all questions and answered difficult topics in an insightful and respectful manner. The pace was perfect and we stayed at each site for the just the right amount of time. The bus had good a/c. The lunch was basic but I enjoyed the freshly cooked falafel. If you’re thinking of doing a non-pilgrim tour in Jerusalem and prefer to be in a smaller group, book this tour.

      Best Jerusalem boutique tour!
      Best Jerusalem boutique tour! Gadi was the best tour guide anybody could have asked for! We visited all the places described in the tour and learned so much about Jerusalem history. Eyal, our driver was so cool and kind! He shared a cold bottle of beer at the end of the tour providing a moment to reflect of all the things we have learned.

      Nadia’s Amazing Tour of Jerusalem and Israel
      Nadia was such an awesome tour guide. She was so knowledgeable about the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim religious history of Jerusalem and all of Israel. She gave us so much information and history that peaked our interest at all times. It was an amazing tour! Thank you so much Nadia! I will definitely recommend you to all my friends.

      Amazing Jerusalem tour!
      Nadia was an amazing guide - personable and informative. She was very thorough both in the history of the region as well as the nuances of the cultures. She covered a lot in a relatively short time and kept on us a very good schedule for site seeing and breaks. Great tour!

      Get amazed by Jerusalem
      Planning a trip to Israel / Tel Aviv, a Jerusalem visit is a no-brainer. We heared from Amazin Jerusalem / Menno de Vries earlier and read about the good reviews. Although we'd rather would have liked the tour to be in Dutch, the guide Gadi hosted our tour in English and he did well. This man is a walking wikipedia in the best sense of the word. It is quite an understatement that the Israel/Palistinian situation is quite particular, but every type of information during the excursion was brought in perspective to history and nothing else. A big cheers to the driver who offered us a cool bottle of beer on the ride home, providing us with a moment of ease and reflection of all the things we have seen and heared.

      A Great Choice
      From the time we were picked off to the time we were dropped off we were in great hands. Our tour guide Nadia was fantastic giving us a lot of information with a fun delivery. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and highly recommend this tour. Our driver Eyal was very nice as well getting us back and forth smoothly and safely.

      Book this tour. It was amazing.
      We took a few tours and excursions during our vacation time in Israel and Greece-- but this Walking Tour of Jerusalem from Booqify was our favorite. To start, it was only 5 of us..so basically a private tour. Our other tour peeps were hilarious (and also from Florida like us) and we had a ton of fun the entire day. Our guide was Eva. We were so impressed with her. She was so very knowledgeable of everything we experienced on the tour. Majority of the Holy sites in the Old City are on this tour. You will walk approx 4.1 miles (according to my GPS watch) but it is the most unbelievable thing to experience. She had a great plan, and we avoided most lines and congestion. With a small group, we had an entire day of conversation not just about Jerusalem and the Sites, but about Israel and the future. We are so appreciative of her and her insight to all of this. It was a very special day for us. One of reflection and deep thinking. It is one we will remember forever. ...and guys if you're reading this from Boca...we hope we see you again. Y'all kicked it up a notch. Thanks R and V

      Must do Jerusalem tour
      This was a fabulous tour! We were picked up on time in Tel-Aviv and had a nice drive to Jerusalem. Frank gave us lots of information on the drive so it was very enjoyable. We arrived and started our tour. Again Frank was very good and giving lots of valuable information. All the sites are just incredible to see. We had a wonderful lunch at a rooftop restaurant and were advised what shops to avoid and which shops could be trusted (but we were not made to shop ever, we could leave lunch a little early and shop if wanted). We chose to stay in Jerusalem after the tour (you have the option of using it as a transfer or returning to Tel Aviv). Would definitely recommend this tour!!

      Excellent one day trip to discover Jerusalem
      Great one-day trip to Jerusalem. It definitely exceeded our expectations. Nadia was a great and fun guide. She provided historical background to all the sites that we visited but she managed to keep it to what is essential only without going into unnecessary details. We visited a lot for one day and it was a nice mix of historical facts and how different religions interpreted it over the years. The lunch was nice as well and we also had just enough time to buy some souvenirs. Everything was well organized and on time. I definitely recommend this trip to everyone who wants to discover Jerusalem. The size of the group (18 people) was also great to walk around without getting lost and having delays.

      Small group tour of Jerusalem
      Incredible trip to Jerusalem. Our guide (Nadia) really made the trip amazing. Nadia’s comprehensive knowledge of the history of not only Jerusalem’s but all of Israel’s history, is impressive. This is a small group tour, which in my opinion, is the only way to go, as you are not losing time trying to coordinate and motivate a large group.

      Phenomenal Experience
      The tour was wonderful and definitely one that I won’t forget. The major factor of this tour being such a great experience was definitely our amazing guide Nadia, her positive, fun and warm energy and absolute wealth of knowledge! I cannot recommend her enough. I have learned so many things I didn’t know before, be it historic or cultural. You will get to see all the important sites. Another major plus is the small group size. You actually get to know everyone you spend the day with and there is enough room for questions. You will have to walk quite a bit during the tour, so do wear comfortable shoes and bring enough water ;)

      Nadia was great, the experience was the best!
      Nadia is a great guide! She explained not only the history of Jerusalem but also the culture and religion of all the different perspectives that coexist in this wonderful place. The group was not to big which made it easier to move around and learn. I really loved the experience and highly recommended it to everyone!

    Absolutely fantastic day out in The Old City of Jerusalem. We arranged a private tour with Jeremy as our guide and it was exactly what we had hoped for. We were taken to all the places we wanted to visit and had plenty of information provided by Jeremy.

    As a tour guide, Jeremy had a very natural way about him and the information he provided us about the City did not feel over rehearsed. The pace of the tour was very relaxed, stopping were we wanting but at the same time ensuring we got to see everything we had on the list. Jeremy was also great with our kids.

    A fantastic day out!

    We really recommend this tour. We did a private tour with Menno on Christmas Day,
    and visited the holy sites for all 3 religions in the city.
    During the 6 hour tour we arrived to many places we would have never gotten to had we not had a knowledgeable and local guide, so we think this tour is truly a must for anyone who wants to visit the old city!

    Our group of 8 had a wonderful time learning about Jerusalem with Chava! She was very professional and went above and beyond to maximize our experience. I can't imagine trying to absorb all the history and culture without her help. We were able to personalize the tour to match our interests. Even though she doesn't share our faith, Chava read scripture and focused on the things she knew would be important to us. Thank you, Chava!!

    Our family of four (with two young adult daughters) had a great private half day tour of the Old City with Gabi. He was friendly and very knowledgable. He took note of our interests before we began and he was flexible. He kept our interest the entire time - our girls also enjoyed it immensely. We came away knowing so much more than if we had explored on our own. It was a great way to begin our stay in Jerusalem.

    We were delighted with our private tour of the Old City of Jerusalem with Shimon. All aspects of it from the planning by email to the day itself went very well. Shimon was very knowledgeable and really made the city “come to life” for us and our sons. He went at our pace and designed and updated the itinerary based on our requests and interests, also making useful suggestions which we were pleased to accept. By the end we had all learned a great deal and had experienced a day we will always remember!

    Tareq's willingness and flexibility to maximize our day in Old Jerusalem was impressive. Tareq's passion and depth of knowledge on Old Jerusalem and history of the different religions was amazing and informative.

    We accomplished our objectives over the 7 hours thanks to his knowledge and efficient management of our time. We would give a 5 plus rating on a 5 star rating scale.

    We just did a full day tour of Jerusalem with my 3 boys, 13,11 and 8 years old. We loved every minute of it, we had Amit Musaei as our guide, he did an amazing job, he kept kids interested for the entire 10 hours. We saw and learned so many things it truly was one of the most unique experiences we have ever had. It’s def a must to book with Amit, he’s extremely knowledgeable and very cool, able to accommodate our requests. Cant rave enough about our experience ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Shimon was our guide and he went above and beyond our expectations. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and shared great stories one wouldn’t find in a book. Our fav part was possible his way to explain the history of the old city.
    He also made sure we felt comfortable on a very hot day. Highly recommended!

    Fantastic 5 hour guided tour of Jerusalem with Agustina, an excellent guide with great knowledge of the history and monuments of the old town. We were a Spanish family of 9 and Agustina provided the perfect balance of facts, dates, culture information on economic and social aspects and anecdotes. A magic tour! I highly recommend Agustina as a guide
