An interesting overview of the city and the religions that are the bedrock of this phenomenal place. Our guide was interesting, enthusiastic, and more than happy to field questions and stimulate thought. And this tour is a great way to get your bearings if you’ve never been to Jerusalem before.

As first timers in Jerusalem, we would not have known where to start and how to proceed. The tour was reasonably priced enough to give us the lay of the land and enable us to be confident enough to venture out on our own after its completion. Highly recommended for those just getting to know the city for the first time.

The tour is really well organized. Orna, our guide, was really expert, clear and kind. She explained lot of historical events and, at the same time, historical anecdotes making the visit really interesting. Jerusalem is a city full of history and having a walk with her was amazing to understand its allure. The tour is a little bit tiring but it's worth it.

I learnt a lot during the trip and Dror, our guide, did a fantastic job keeping the tour both informative and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

We chose well with this tour as it gave us a thorough overview of the old city, the principle sites and a great guide (thanks Anat Rom) who gave us information about where we were going, where we were and the relevant history and religious significance. A great introduction from which we were able to decide where to visit the next day. Food not in package but guide organised a reasonable lunch that we paid for. The next day we rested at a different but similar restaurant that ripped us off so guide on this tour looked after us.

We very much enjoyed this walking tour of the 4 walls in Jerusalem. Our tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgable and you can tell he really likes being a tour guide. He gave us great information and advised us through dress codes and cultural norms we may not have been use to. I would highly recommend this tour

She is very knowledgeable and kept us really engaged and interacting as a group. She is also very caring and watched out for us. I almost forgot my jacket. She noticed I wasn't wearing it and went back into the restaurant to get it before I even saw that it was missing. She is really exceptional.

Anat was an amazing guide for the Three Religions tour we took today. She is very knowledgable, conscientious and well prepared. She is also friendly, funny and kind.While all of the locals we visited are spectacular in their own right, through her insights and ‘visual aides’ Anat brought them all to life and heightened the experience exponentially.

David did a great job. He is very knowledgeable of all the sites. Since the Temple Mount was closed because of a Muslim holiday, he added other sites and the tour actually went longer than scheduled, which was fine. He explained that, and everyone in the group stayed for the whole thing. Basti was also a delicious lunch stop. Thanks!

Was very well done by Shlomo. He did an excellent job covering both the history and religion while avoiding the politics.

This was a very good tour. We went up on the Temple Mount which was on my bucket list. Not too many people manage to get up there. Jeru was a very knowledgeable guide.
• Submitted 09 Oct 2018
Really good tour. Lots of walking. You really have to believe that the sites where you visit are where things actually happened. Faith I guess but overall the tour guide was very informative.

My goodness we lucked out with our knowledgeable guide - Joshua Levinson. He took us on the most incredible tour around the Old City of Jerusalem. We got to see all the main sights bar Dome of the Rock - as it was closed with a lot of places and side streets we would not have known about. He made the tour interesting and varied and kept our attention until past 6pm in fact having started at 11am. We were with our two children - 12 and 9 years old and they equally loved the whole day. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Jerusalem. When we return we will definitely book another of your tours. Excellent and very memorable day. Cannot fault it.

Great tour with Allan. We saw the major sites of the Holy City and got lots of history. Need to have good shoes as there is a lot of walking and up and down. We had a quick stop for lunch so don't expect to much. the beauty of the tour is moving around the maze that is the old City efficiently and seeing the main sites. Allan was a great guide with lots of knowledge.

Great value, money well spent. Anna was our guide and is a history geek so we had insightful tour. Fun too! Very smart and has a extensive education In history. Can say enough. Thank you!

We typically like to wander on our own, but were eager to learn as much as possible about the history and religious traditions surrounding this amazing place. Though our group was a bit larger than expected, it was a thoughtful and respectful tour and we enjoyed others' questions. Our guide, Uriel, was excellent and his knowledge and presentation, obviously well-honed. We definitely recommend this tour for content and visual and spiritual experience, but be prepared to walk, climb stairs and stand for long periods. If it had been a few degrees warmer, we might not have finished with the group!

Excellent overview of the Holy City. Tour guide was phenomenal!

Matt is very knowledge. He took us around the holy city despite some inconvenience caused by mike pence’s visit making our visit to west wall impossible. He shows us some nice local cuisines and especially took the time at the holy church with detailed tour and explanation. maybe can use graphs?

Allan, our guide, was great, and we really feel like we got a good overview of Jerusalem's jewels. The only downside was that we were quite a large group, but we managed to stay close to him and hear most of his stories.
