This was our second trip with Itamar Buk. He is very knowledgeable and makes the trips enjoyable. He is very personable, friendly and helpful. We had a medical emergency at the end of our trip and Itamar handled it calmly and professionally. I will highly recommend Bein Harim trips to everyone I know that plans to visit Israel. The trips are worth every penny and you will be extremely satisfied with the knowledge gained from Itamar Buk.

We were looking for a way to see Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee on a day trip from Tel-Aviv, so this tour sounded perfect. It did not disappoint! We went on 13 Jan 2020. Danny was a wonderful guide, keeping us informed and entertained throughout a 12 hour day. Pickup near our hotel was easy and on time, and the entire day was well-organized and upbeat. We saw everything on the itinerary, as well as a stop at the Jordanian border for some quick photos. There was time for some shopping in Nazareth, where we picked up a bottle of local wine. Lunch was at St. Peter's Restaurant (on the shore of the Sea of Galilee), where there were four fish, chicken, or kebab options, plus a non-meat falafel meal. The small bus we took seated around 25, and all seats were full except for one. There was space for luggage underneath the bus, and small overhead compartments above the seats. Everyone on our tour was great, and it was a very enjoyable day. Thanks Danny, and Bein Harim Tours!

Dear Eric Thanks so much for this rave 5-star review and detailed, richly informative account of our tour with your guide Danny. He sure is worthy of your complimentary feedback for his efforts, professionalism and tour management skills. We are so pleased to read you have come away with a varied and enriching tour experience to cherish. The details mentioned are very useful to others on this platform, descriptive and highly accurate. Especially your mention of the lunch served at the spectacular location on the shores of the Sea of Galilee,for which other travelers often have little praise!! (level of expectation and in a rural area that can cater for groups) It is much appreciated.Hope to see you travel with us again sometime.

We enjoyed this tour for many reasons, but having a great guide makes it all the better. We were fortunate to be taken care of on this beautiful and meaningful day by Dorit Epstein.

It is rare these days to find guides who are really passionate about their work and about their country. Dorit is exactly that. She was full of information and guidance from A to Z at every site.

She kept a larger group on task and kept us moving on time throughout the day.

She is a kind, knowledgeable person and you can tell how much she loves her country. I will be recommending this tour, particularly with Dorit, to my colleagues, family, and friends.

Thank you, Dorit, and Bein Harim Tours, for a great holiday!

The tour was well organised and the guide Dan was very good. However for a 12 hour trip - at least half of which was spent in the bus - it was a bit disappointing. The river Jordan was a nice spot if a bit touristy, Capernaum was good, Nazareth consists of visiting two modern churches with crypts that may or may not be the sites of Mary & Joseph's homes, followed by an obligatory visit to a very expensive souvenir shop. The best part was Dan's commentary on everything to do with Israel.

If all you need is a ride, this will technically work. The actual “tour” consisted largely of a man citing a few Bible passages at each location. The guide seemed unaware that patrons might be familiar with recent Middle East history and/or the Gospels. He frequently misrepresented regional history. The biblical history is more accurately and discursively represented on the signs on site. Maybe there is someone on a Nazareth tour who hasn’t read the Bible, but it seems unlikely. Furthermore, the passages were also on signs. Reading selectively from New Testament is this not useful. The egregious misrepresentation of the history of Israel grew distracting, tiresome, and a disservice to those familiar with what happened.

The original tour we signed up for included a stop at Tiberius. We were changed to this tour, which did not stop at the Roman site. Be advised that though Tiberius is in the name, you will not get to see it. You do drive near it.

Dear 91apples, We are regretful that you felt that the guide's commentary was misrepresenting. Knowing your guide and his knoweldge and professionalism we are sure he made every effort to provide accurate commentary to the best of his knowledge and ability. Correcting you, regarding Tiberius, there is no time for the stop there, we only drive through Tiberius. Best, Bein Harim team

I’ve been to this tour on thursday, jan 2nd 2020, with my girlfriend. It was a stressful day and I have been insulted by the tour company employees.

The weather that day was terrible, it rained all day long, and that was not the tour guide’s fault. But that’s the least of the problems that day.

The tour guide (Saar) was BY FAR the worst tour guide we had in Israel (out of a total of 7 tours). He didn’t give much explanations about the trip, about the locations we visited, he basically just walked the group to each site and said what was it and couple of facts that were written right in front of us. His english skills were very limited and everyone at the group struggled to understand him…. He was very poor at organizing and controlling the tour group, several times he’s lost group members and we took long time under rain waiting for the group to reunite. It was very frustrating to spend the whole day with him and we didn’t even had the choice to leave the tour… it was a pain to endure all day long with this appalling tour guide!

By the end of the day, if the bad experiences haven’t been enough so far, then it happened the coronation of this disgusting tour: the bus driver “forgot” to drop us off at our hotel and when we were about 2 km away, I looked into Google Maps and questioned the guide Saar, who asked the bus driver to come back… This bus driver stopped the bus, refused to come back or at least leave us closer to the hotel, and yelled at us to step down the bus right away. I refused to it, complained with Saar….he told me, very undisturbed, that he could not force the bus driver to come back so we should just leave and walk back. I understand a little hebrew, and the driver was cursing us in hebrew while he was telling Saar he WAS NOT coming back to drop us off and “fu** these tourists, they will walk back”.

This was our last tour in Israel, it left a terrible memory and I everyone that considers using this company - Bein Harim - services must know they have this low level of people working in their staff, and any tour might turn out to be a nightmare day like this.

There are other tour companies we used in Israel and their services were MUCH better, not to mention we didn’t have any complains at all.

Dear Marcel, We are most regretful that this was the nature of your tour experience with Bein Harim. As you can see it is most certainly not our reputation at all, nor for our highly recommended tour guides and our tour management. Saar may be young but he is not an inexperienced tour guide (officially licensed to guide in English and proficient, therefore). He also has a most pleasant manner and excellent tour management skills. However, may we say that this particular day, and your trip to the North, was indeed a harsh day operationally, by all standards. We have no reason to hide behind any excuses, fact, heavy rainfall compounds moving around in a group. People have different paces, under such conditions for sure. It was a day of the harshest rainfall in the North of Israel in about 50 years over 110mm of rain (yearly average). It meant having to be super organized, this may have posed problems for him, and probably any tour guide. Saar has reported with much regret and apology that this was the nature of your experience of him. He certainly had no reason not to cooperate with you, and thus threaten his own position and make him liable for such a severe complaint. We are much more disturbed what you describe as the behavior of the bus driver and your hotel drop off proximity (we subcontract when there are large volumes of travelers). Your report has been passed onto the bus company for investigation and we will certainly not use this driver based on what you describe. We strive to provide the best possible service even when conditions hamper doing so. We will continue to follow this severe complaint on your private mail platform. Kindly accept our sincere apologies for having come away with such an experience. May we add that this is not at all reflective of our overall tourism services of the highest standard that we strive to operate daily and of the 94% satisfied travelers who report so on this platform. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Services team

Hey, it’s the French group with the cute grand ma !

So, the day started roughly, pick up time was supposed to be between 5:35 and 5:55, it came at 6:40 with a misunderstanding because we were told to wait at Prima Kings hotel while the tour was told to pick us up at another hotel.

If we just stop here that sounds chaotic right ? But then Dorit came in, and oh god she is a peach ! We left Prima Kins hotel at 6:40, and Dorit kept speaking from 6:40, to 18:30 when we came back, not a single moment we were annoyed, very interesting things all the way though the trip, her English is flawless, she is energetic, running around everywhere so we can spend a good moment and take time to prey, while she’s in charge !

We first went to Nazareth, where she guided us through the annunciation basilica. The architecture was very impressing, the art was modern and yet it was gorgeous. Then we went to the St Joseph chapel nearby. She brought us to a Christian store in Nazareth full of very welcoming person.

We then went to the church of the multiplication of loaves and fish. Very beautiful near Tierran lake.

Then off to capernaüm, we visited the old synagogue of Jesus and the house of peter with a magnificent church built on it. And we could take picture on the shores of the Galilean sea.

We then went to eat launch in a restaurant with salad buffet and a good menu. Then we could access the beach on the Galilean sea shores.

We then finished our trip by going to the Jarmenit baptism site, where people could get baptized, the energy from this site was sooo great, people were clapping, singing, screaming hallelujah as other people were being immersed by priests in the water of the Jordan river. That place was happy and heartwarming. About 10 hours were already passed and we drove back to Jerusalem where they dropped us near our hotel.

This journey was wonderful, landscapes were gorgeous, full of spirituality, the energies were so positive, and Dorit was the most wonderful guide we’ve ever had, said my 80 years old grand ma that travels a lot !

Thanks again for Dorit and Shy (the bus conductor) for this awesome trip to Nazareth ! :)

Yoav was a great tour guide and provided a constant flow of information about each of the historic sites we visited along with the surrounding areas on the drive between each site. He was very friendly and took the time to learn something about each of us on the tour which made it easy to both him and others in the group. I'd take another tour with Yoav if he was the guide.
