The tour was very well organized, unexpected problems were dealt with efficiency. Each area of the Old City and new one was given ample time! Our guide Ossy was well read and displayed a sense of humor and kept cool even when some of us got lost!
We had a wonderful tour guide called Ami. He was friendly, inspiring, full of information, enthusiastic and sincere in what he was saying. The tour started with a drive up to a high point so that we could look over the whole city. It was such a beautiful view and we had the opportunity to get out of the bus, film and take photos. The tour continued on from there so that we could see other important sites along the route to the old city, such as the Mount of Olives. Pity there was no time to stop there, though. Walking through the streets of Old Jerusalem, seeing key places, both Jewish and Christian, and having the historical, traditional and biblical references explained in such detail while we were actually there was wonderful. It's was a great experience for Bible scholars, but even if you were not, the tour guide's narrative made up for that. He literally brought the Biblical accounts to life. We had no idea beforehand, however, that there would be so much walking at pace in the heat of the day. If you're not very fit, be prepared. Wearing a hat is a MUST so as to not fade away from heat exhaustion or sun stroke, and non-slip shoes are advisable as the street stones are smooth, no doubt worn down by the thousands of pilgrims who've visited over decades. The tour also involves climbing lot of steps up to and down from some of the sacred places, as well as up to the restaurant where we had lunch. Its quite a strenuous tour and was a challenge for us, not to mention a few of the older members of our group. The last stop on the tour was the visit to the Holocaust museum, which was informative and interesting. We were not accompanied inside by our tour guide, so we were unable to ask any questions about what we saw nevertheless being able to visit the museum was a valuable part of the day. For all of the sites we visited and for what we saw, we would say that the tour reflected good value for money and would highly recommend it.
Booked an English tour and found myself the only English speaker amongst a group of Spanish speakers. The guide was not good and spoke more Spanish than English. Also saw none of New Jerusalem. Would not recommend.
Title of this tour is misleading, it should be labeled Old Jerusalem and holocaust museum tour, you spend the morning touring old Jerusalem and whole afternoon touring holocaust museum. You can see as much putting the Holy Sepulchre church and wailing wall on your google maps and touring on your own.
First of all Three Stars May seem like a so/so review - but this was actually a really good tour BUT the first rule of excursions is to do as described in the description and itinerary of the actual tour which this tour DID NOT. Firstly, the tour says youll start your tour on the Mount of Olives and then spend time in the Gardens of Gethsemane WRONG what we actually did was drive straight to the Old City and our guide said there is the Mount of Olives out of your mini bus window on the left take pictures quickly as we have to keep moving - I asked about the Gardens of Gethsemane and she replied No not on this Tour?
Then the Old City was a little rushed to be honest and we were told You havent got time to wait for 3 hours to see the Tomb of Christ - as we havent got time in actual fact myself and my partner came back the following day by ourselves and the waiting time for The Tomb of Christ was exactly 28 minutes?
The Jewish Apocolypse Museum was necessary and harrowing to visit - but the entire afternoon was dedicated to this visit and our guide said this museum is important to me and quite rightly so but clearly the day was skewed in favour of where the tour guide wanted to go?
A very good tour - but not as described in the Tour Description.
Hicimos 4 tours con esta compañía 3 muy bien.
Las sugerencias son:
1.- No pasen por cada persona a los hoteles es una pérdida de tiempo y nos hacen esperar mucho tiempo por que no te recogen exactamente en el hotel no a todos si no en algún cercano y en nuestro caso tuvimos espera de casi una hora.
2.- Nos han tocado varios tours en los cuales el guía lleva un micrófono inalámbrico y cada uno de nosotros tenemos audifonos. En estos 4 tours el guía tenía que gritar para que escucharamos y eramos grupos de al menos 35 personas lo cual hacia bastante difícil lograrlo.
Los lugares visitados son hermosos y el conocimiento y preparación de cada guía de lo mejor.
La ciudad vieja para mi de lo que más me gusto.
I would do this again. This was an informative and educational tour of Old Jerusalem. We walked the whole morning till around 2PM in Jerusalem. We went up close to the Western Wall and I did the touristy thing and wrote my petition and included that among the many pieces of paper stuck between the cracks in the wall. The highlight of this tour for me was the Church of the Holy Sepulche. There wasnt a lot of people so we were able to touch and pray beside the stones marking the site of Jesus crucifiction, the stone that held the body of Jesus when he was taken down for burrial and the burial site.
Our tour guide kept us moving with her informed tour. We went to lunch at a restaurant that had a roof top area for dining which was an added bonus. Although we were taken to one shop, we did not have any time to purchase anything from the many vendors but we did get to see all of the places promised. Luckily we had time another day to return and leisurely visit the Old City. We felt comfortable as our guide had given us a solid sense of the area. Overall, a great tour.
