My wife and I have done and seen literally everything their is to do in the old city, having been to Israel countless times in our lives. This activity is truly unique.....a very different perspective to tour Jerusalem. The tour started in a parking lot just outside the city walls- first we rode outside the walls touring the new city (Yemin Moshe, old railroad station now a busy outdoor mall), then riding to the old city, visiting all four quarters in the dead of night- amazing! All the time we felt totally safe, our tour guide (Gal) was informative and encouraging. He showed us parts of the old city we had never seen before, was extremely friendly, and spoke fluent english. Some things to be aware of.....even though it is called “midnight”, it actually starts at 9:00 pm and ends about 11:30, which was actually better for us. Although the ride is fine for beginners, there are a few pretty steep hills, my two daughters occasionally got off to walk there bikes bc a few hills were too difficult for them to pedal, but again, not such a big deal over the course of the evening. Some riding is in the street, but Gal was very attentive in telling us beforehand the best and safest way, no worries there was almost no traffic. We had a glitch- At the about 90% completion mark, my daughters derailer broke. Gad was chivalrous and switched bikes with her after lowering his seat, as he ran the broken bike the rest of the way while my daughter rode, and nothing lost for us. The tour is somewhat expensive, but in my opinion (especially if u enjoy bike riding) is definitely worth the vacation splurge because of its uniqueness and enjoyability. All in all, we loved the experience. As they say in Israel, kol hakavod!

We thoroughly enjoyed our Jerusalem bike tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable of history and it was a unique experience to see the city at night. My one recommendation is to check the bikes that are provided prior to starting the ride. We were a group of 4 and 2 bikes had broken bells and the front brake was malfunctioning on 1 bike...all which we discovered after we were well into the tour. In addressing my concerns to the company, they first told me they would get back to me in 2 weeks. After a month I contacted them again at which point they offered gift certificates which are of no use as we were tourists (which I suspect was their intention). All of that being said, I recommend the bike tour as we really did enjoy it. I’m hoping this review will motivate them to take more seriously the conditions of their equipment and the safety of their customers.

Bad organisation, although response time was fast initially, the last confirmation did not come. I called them, left my phone number as the right person was not there. I have been waiting at the Karta parking... nobody. Very disappointing.

Really enjoyed our midnight Jerusalem bicycle ride with Gal and Jonathan! We had a great time and learned more about the city! Also discovered perhaps the best point to take a panoramic photo of the Western Wall. It is best to have some experience on bicycles before taking the ride, the streets of Jerusalem are definitely challenging to maneuver on a bike but the guides made it as safe as possible especially with the large group we had (about 25). Go! Enjoy the ride!

We took mountain bikes on the streets and alleys of the Old City of Jerusalem when the shops were mostly closed. Gal was a great tour guide, who stopped at important sights to explain the local history and significance. Recommend that you have mountain bike skills to enjoy this as much as possible. The old stone paths of Jerusalem are really enjoyable on a bike, so glad to have done this!
