We had an amazing experience across Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, Galilee and Nazareth with Rami as our guide. Rami is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and personable. He is a great conversationalist with a profoundly deep understanding of history, culture, and religion. I have been guided by Rami three times and I specifically choose Gold Carpet Tours and Rami.

Food and souvenir recommendations are always a great experience as well. I completely trust GCT and Rami to ensure we get authentic experiences and souvenirs.

NO up-sell tactics and no hidden fees!!

Everything about this experience has been beyond perfection.

Disclaimer-our group is all 45-50, good health and physically capable. We packed a lot in that would be difficult for older groups. However, GCT and Rami are experienced to develop an age/abilities appropriate experience.

We had 25 devices (many with 2-3 people watching. Setting up the Zoom tour was easy; the Gold Carpet team handled the details, the tech, and the 8 hr time difference! Just a few of the comments I got: It brought back memories of visiting Jerusalem 20 years ago. What a wonderful hour and a half....Ronit was so knowledgeable, and the weather was perfect. ;) Amazing! I actually did feel like I was there! I was worried it might make me seasick—like video games—but the camera & pace was great. (KR) It was fun sneaking through those little alleys, and even peeking at the shops-wow (Joan) How interesting it was! She pointed explained many things we wouldn't have noticed (R&C). It was a bonus that we could keep chatting among our group after the tour was over.

I had the unique opportunity to be on a private virtual tour of the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem. I learned and saw quite a bit in the hour tour and would recommend it to anyone who is stuck at home and dreaming of travel. A live walk through makes it some much more personable where you can ask questions while you are viewing the outdoor sites. The Covid19 situation prevents from really getting to many of the places I wanted to visit so this was an amazing walk through introduction and provided me with more insight into what I would like in a vacation in the future to Israel.

We went as a group and used gold carpet tour company in Israel. It was a wonderful experience with an excellent tour guard that made our stay a memorable one.
Right from the time we were picked at the airport to our first hotel, second hotel and third hotel in Jerusalem. We visited different places like Jordan, Jericho, Bethlehem, Damascus and many more..
It was indeed good value for money and would gladly recommend gold carpet tour company anyday and anytime.

Throughly enjoyable tour conducted by David. Informative and very well presented. Was lovely to visit various sites along the Pilgrim Road and to have views of the City of David, the Old City, and the Temple Mount.
Our only issue at times was internet connectivity, but this was in no fault of the the tour guide, nor the organisation, and therefore I am happy to give 5 stars which is very well deserved.
If you are unable to travel to Jerusalem due to COVID restrictions or for any other reason, this is certainly a wonderful alternative.
Thank you to you, David and to Ronnie as well for making the experience from the inquiry from the website, smooth transaction, excellent communication regarding the procedure for the tour, and again the professional delivery. My wife and I look forward to other opportunities in the future.
Shalom from us in Melbourne, Australia to you in Jerusalem.

We did the real time virtual tour of the old city of Jerusalem. During these uncertain times and being in lockdown in Australia it was wonderful to see the streets of the old city and the Kotel. It was informative and very enjoyable way to spend an hour and half.
The only small negative is because this was streamed live there were some internet black spots. Other than that - i highly recommend the tour

We had a one-day tour of Jerusalem and Dead Sea-Kalia Beach. Ilan Cohen our driver and guide was simply fantastic and had great knowledge of the biblical sites. Ever patient for our photo shoots to get over, he was more a friend than a guide. A well planned and coordinated day tour, we carry the best of memories from Israel.Thanks Ilan....you are highly recommended.

cannot say enough about this tour company and the wonderful guide DUBY.
We were on a 23 day cruise and this was the ONLY tour of value for the entire 23 days. We booked it on our own as a private tour. From the first phone call Stella was helpful in arranging it quickly. We can hardly wait to go back and use this company for a longer stay. They are just amazing

We found Gold Carpet on line and spent sometime communicating with them about what we wanted to do in Israel and Jordan and they were very responsive in accommodating our wishes. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and went out of his way to ensure our trip was special. It was great the way Ami was able to adapt his plans to fit into our needs and interest for the day. And the other lovely thing was that the "Head Office' would ring often to ensure that things were running smoothly. We would definitely recommend Gold carpet to other tourists heading to Israel. We would also like to pass our thanks to Ramadan, our guide in Jordan who did a splendid job looking after us. We do encourage people to visit Jordan - people are very welcoming and there are some special sights there.
