We have travelled exstensively all over the world and have had numerous guides but none compared to our recent guide in Israel, Reuven Reggev. We spent 6 days with Reuven and not only did we enjoy him and his work, we found a new friend in the process. Reuven's knowledge of Israel, its architecture, religion and history is unsurpassed. He was always on time, went out of his way to help in any way he could, answered any questions we had, was easy to understand, explained everything in depth and connected it with a story. I am very structured, expected a lot and I am not one to say things if I don't mean them, so please do not take this review lightly. I think if you are going to Israel, you deserve the best and Reuven is just that. We were so happy with him that we invited him to join us at dinner each night because we so enjoyed his company . He is honest, does things right and really wants you to enjoy your time there. We spent on some days 10 hours touring and there is no way I could stand that amount of time with a guide if we were not captivated. We miss him and we will stay in touch with him. Reuven you are the best.
Thank you for a wonderful time. Joe and Maria from Philadelphia

It was a pleasure touring with Guided Tours Israel, and it also was a pleasure dealing with Leo through the booking process. We found him very helpful, responsive and accommodating. Our guide, Mickey, was a wealth of knowledge. She was animated and passionate, and presented us, over our three days with her, an incredible amount of information. Her grasp of history, religion, geography, and the complex dynamics of life in this region of the world was incredible. She has a great sense of humor, and is not a wilting wallflower when it comes to expressing her point of view. We enjoyed the time we got to spend with her, and left with a deeper sense of feeling for this fascinating country. Over the span of three days, we were exposed to Masada, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Caesarea, Acre and a brief tour of Haifa. Obviously there is still so much to see and experience in Israel, and it is our hope to return soon. When we do, we will not hesitate to contact Guided Tours Israel to resume our exploration. We will definitely contact them when that time comes, since we were so pleased with the service we received.

We enjoyed a wonderful time in Israel. Our guide was first class. He was knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and humorous - the perfect combination. The tours were illuminating and provided us with some treasured memories and experiences.

We were on the cruise ship Celebration and took a trip with Guided Tours Israel to Jerusalem and Bethlehem. It was with a group of 12 on a very comfortable air conditioned mini bus.
Our guide Mickie was a mine of information. Think we saw more things going with this smaller group than with the big buses you took with Thomsons. There is a lot of walking , touring churches etc. and getting in and out of the bus, so it is a very full day (10 hours in total). The price for this trip was excellent. In Bethlehem you do have to stop at a shop but no pressure to buy and the shop she took us to was owned by the grandson of the man who discovered the Dead Sea scrolls, and displayed one of the urns that the scrolls were found in, plus pictures and similar artefacts.

We would without doubt recommend Guided Tours Israel (Leo) as being great value for money

Our tour was not a private one and I could not find where we can provide our review. Our agent was Leo and he exceeded all our expectations. This was truly the trip of a lifetime! From the time we got thru customs, he met us there at Tel Aviv Airport and then we did not have to worry about anything. As this was a group tour thru his group called ISRAM, the tour guides operator called CTO (Consolidated Tour Operators) were excellent. We had one tour guide in Israel for 8 days/7 nights and another tour guide for Jordan (3 days/2 nights).

We had one request before we booked the tour and that was "will there be a lot of shopping?" Leo said no. That is exactly what we wanted. As it turns out, that is what we experienced. We wanted more educational and historical tour. This was an excellent experience with Leo and CTO.
