Jerusalem tour guide

I would like to find a tour guide in jerusalem for a 1/2 or full day private tour. I am interested in the historical religious (all religions) sites, the architecture & archeology as well as the knesset and museums. Any suggestions? We will be there during passover in a few weeks. Thank you.

What should I expect to pay for a half day walking tour in Jerusalem from one of these guides?

While some guides do charge a full-day rate for a half-day tour (since it's basically impossible to get another job for the rest of the day), others do not, so the half-day price would be more like $180-$250 for that. Some also will charge by the hour with a minimum (usually 3 hours) at $50-$65/hour. These are officially licensed guides, not the guys who stand around near, for instance, Jaffa Gate and instead of taking you on a tour, point to a couple of things as they take you to their shops...

Thanks for updating on the norm for tour prices. With the precipitous slide of the US dollar, those prices have hiked significantly if paid in dollars -- and frankly understandably. Israeli guides live in a world where things are priced in shekels, and those dollars buy far fewer than was true a year ago.
