I was out for a rather pathetic morning run (I am going to blame Jerusalem's hills and altitude) and I saw the poster for JLM running tours. I thought this was a neat idea to keep me honest (get me out running) and see some more of the city (as I was working in the West Bank for the week, I wasn't a tourist, I was able to see the big things but not everything, for sure). And for two or more people they may be able to meet you and begin from your hotel, if you are close enough to the center city. But, I was really nervous. The distances of the tours are from 3-7km. That's fine; I've run marathons and ultras. But I was very worried about pace as I am slow and walk often. I emailed with my concerns and received a very prompt reply, that I shouldn't worry, since they stop a lot, and they may be able to give a private, custom one on Friday if I can do it then. So I decided to do that, and got a colleague to come with me, and asked if we could make it half an hour later than the usual time since it was just us. Sure enough, he came.... I was so nervous about being able to keep up that I couldn't sleep the night before. But it was great. He really let me set the pace and worked with our time constraints, showing us and explaining to us things that we hadn't seen or known about, and skipping (for reasons of time) the things that we had seen already.

I learned so much. And I don't mean about the ancient historical stuff - though there's that too. I mean, about the modern stuff, some historical, some current day, some historical stuff is modern day and current daily living now. It was great to get his real life perspective on so much of what I was living and observing throughout my week. And then there was the smaller stuff. Like really, I learned about the oldest neighborhood outside the Old City from a few sources. But where was I going to learn the stories about the nearby fountain? (Sorry, no spoilers here, take the tour!) Where else would I get up Mount Zion by crossing through Hell? (And thus allow me to tell everyone that I had been "through Hell and back"?)

It was amazing. And they'll tailor it. For hardcore runners, they'll stop less often, explain more. For me, for once it was a running tour that I could handle. I wish they were all like this, with this degree of understanding. I could run anywhere, including the hotel treadmill. What I got from this was the company, the joviality, the history lessons, the perspectives. What I got was exposure to a real life regular person doing a regular activity that I also do, on a regular day, living a regular life, in a culture not mine.... and that's a priceless opportunity to have.

Highly recommended! The tour really covers many of Jerusalem's beautiful sites, and the guide is super friendly, very knowledgeable and interesting! Surely the best way to experience this remarkable city!

We have been to Israel a zillion times, come very often, and have done all the tours/hotspots. We found this new gem, by merely noticing a small sticker sign on some random street post! In fact, we had also just done an old-city Segway tour a few days before (ZUZU tours, also excellent), but figured we had nothing to lose, other than a little sweat. What a great and truly unique experience on every level. For starters, although we are pretty fit, and work out, we are not joggers, and were worried that we wouldn't be able to keep up. Not a problem at all. The pace is very relaxed, and you stop often to hear a brief and informative tour of the place of interest. We learned many new things! Plus, you get a whole different perspective, being literally "feet on the ground" while covering some serious area. Our guide Roei, was the perfect mix, of smarts, personality and professionalism, and was a real pleasure to work with. The best part is, that we were done by 8AM, before we normally would have even woken up that day! LOL
It's a great add-on, while your're in the neighborhood!

First time in a sightrunning tour, went there with my girlfriend and we had an amazing time.
I always love getting to know a new place by taking a run, but this time was definitely the best.
The guide was a lot of fun, and you can really tell he loves what he's doing.
The guide was very flexible too, agreed to meet us right at our hotel at a time we chose because we couldn't join their regular daily tours.

Excellent!

This tour was definitely the best activity we had in Jerusalem!!! It was interesting right from the first minute, and as advertised: it really took our breath away :)

The guide was energetic, fun, sensitive to the group, and extremely knowledgeable about all the sites we ran through. I really liked that he explained a lot about Jerusalem in present time, and not just about its history.He also gave us A LOT of great tips for the rest of our stay in Jerusalem, I'm so glad we met him right at the start of our visit.

To sum up - highly recommended!!!

Btw, we took the morning tour and I think it was a wise decision - the streets were empty and fun to run through, the weather was great, and it leaves you with the entire day ahead.
