About
The Jerusalem light rail spans the city, connecting history, conflict, people and differing narratives. It is a wonderful way to learn about the many facets of this city. We begin on Mount Herzl, the fist stop. We will visit the national cemetery and gain an understanding of the history of Israel. We continue on the light rail, pointing out the sites on the way, exiting at the the colorful Machane Yehuda market which we will tour and sample the street food. We continue on the rail, stopping at the center of town, Jaffa Street and King George Avenue, to get a sense of this historical and bustling area. We continue to the Damascus Gate Station, to visit both a Jewish Ultra-Orthodox neighborhood and the neighboring hub of the Arab section of the city at the Damascus Gate and Salah a Din Street. Here we will get a deep sense of the complexities of this multicultural city. We continue to the Arab and Jewish northern neighborhoods, asking the question: What unites us? What divides us?

A New Insight into an Amazing city
Nov 2019
We know Jerusalem well. We have lived here and studied here. But Ed Snitkoff gave us a new understanding of this amazing city and a deep appreciation for the new and the old. Ed is engaging, informative and he has a great sense of humor. He brings together history, sociology and tradition with great stories and insights into the plaves we visited from Mount Herzl to Pisgat Zeev. Even if you have been to Jerusalem many times we recommend this great day tour of the city.

Best Jerusalem tour ever (with Ryan)
Nov 2019 • Solo
I booked the Jerusalem historic tour with Ryan and it was the most amazing time ever! I can absolutely recommend this tour, one of the best things I’ve ever done and seen. Ryan knows everything about the city and about the nicest places in old Jerusalem! One of the best guides I‘ve ever seen. 7 hours in that city passed so quickly...it was so exciting what Ryan told us.
And also another important point to mention: no stop at souvenir shops!!!
Thanks to Ryan and Tony, an unforgettable and inspiring day today...would love to come back and do the tour again.

Love the ease of use, speed and the culture
Sep 2019
Riding the light train in Jerusalem can be a fun, neat, terrified, stressful or a very pleasant ride. It all depends on what time of the day you picked.
In the morning rush hour, you're bound to be pushed, potentially walked on and maybe be rough by two tickets conductors within 30 seconds. At other times, when the train is not full, the ride is very enjoyable.

You purchase the tickets at every station. It takes American credit cards and very easy to manage and move on. As soon as you step on the train you MUST validate the tickets by sliding them into a reader next to the door. If you don't, and a conductor checked and finds you haven't validated your ticket, it can get ugly and I've read newspaper reports about violence on the train. I like to follow the rules, so there was no issue. At one point, I could reach the reader and a young lady saw that I'm trying, and she took my tickets and was able to validate them for me. This is NOT a typical behavior in Israel.

The ride itself is smooth. The automatic system announces the next stop in Hebrew and English. There's also a rolling display of the next stop.

At every station, there's a timer that shows how many minutes before the train reaches the stop. We never waited for more than three minutes.

Overall, I enjoyed the rides. The trains are well maintained and in top shape.

Highly recommended.
