It was a great tour. We were on a large bus and I was expecting a small, but that’s ok. The tour was just as described and we enjoyed it. Highly recommend.

We were blessed to be a part of Haya’s group! The tour bus picked us up and brought us to a bus hub. The original guide told us our bus number and We found the correct bus easily. We visited Nazareth, Tiberius, The Sea of Galilee, and stopped by the Jordan River to watch some folks get baptized. Haya was very knowledgeable, ready to share history and facts, answer questions in detail, and kept our group on track (timewise). We ate lunch at a great place by the Sea of Galilee (I will warn you; lunch is late in the day so bring snacks). The markets we visited were great and not pushy; We did not feel compelled to buy or stay too long like some of the other reviews mentioned. We will definitely book with Haya again! Go for it!!!

We took this tour and enjoyed a great day. Saw the sites. The highlight was Capernaum and the result of the digs there. Visited some beautiful churches. Our tour guide, YUVAL BIGIO, was well informed, very responsive to questions. He made the tour great.

This tour covers a lot of ground. For me the highlight was Mary’s house but others in my group really enjoyed the ruins at Capernaum. The church of the annunciation was beautiful and surprisingly modern and the church built over the house of St Peter’s mother-in-law was the same but in a different way. I will say that there are a lot of steps involved in the Nazareth section of the tour and to see the church of the annunciation you have to go up a big flight of stairs and one of our group didn’t manage it which was a shame. Even to see Mary’s house and Joseph’s house you have to go down some steps and Capernaum also has steps in various places. If you can see everything though I would recommend making the effort but if you can’t do stairs at all you won’t see very much. The section of the tour where you see the River Jordan I felt a bit of a let down. It is set up a bit like a seaside attraction with shops and cafes and in the actual river there are proper fishing and kids mucking about. Our tour guide told us any of us could baptise each other which I felt missed the point significantly - she was Jewish but I felt could have made an effort to understand the importance of baptism to Christians. I was expecting it to be more of a religious site but didn’t really get that feeling. We also didn’t get that long there so if you did want to experience a baptism it would have been very rushed. Bear in mind you need to bring your own towels etc. Our tour guide, Haya, was an ex-teacher and spent most of the tour bossing us about which was a bit frustrating. The one time where she could have done with being stronger but wasn’t was when they took us to a shop for a brief stop on the way and some members of the group refused to leave at the appointed time. We ended up standing outside the shop in the heat with nowhere to sit for nearly an hour because Haya would not just tell them to leave, which I found incredibly frustrating and unfair on the rest of us as it meant the rest of the tour where you would like to spend more time was rushed and stressful. However, Haya was very knowledgeable and interesting and made the bus rides a lot more entertaining! This is a great tour for anyone interested in the famous biblical locations and I would strongly recommend it.

This tour was a truly full day experience, so wear shoes that are comfortable for walking, and get ready! The sites, of course, were awe-inspiring, but the narration provided by our knowledgeable, gracious, and funny tour guide, Daniel, made the whole experience richer and more fun. There was an excellent selection of fresh food at our lunchtime stop on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. I chose to get baptized in the Jordan River, which I highly recommend. A top-notch tour!

This trip was a great tour and our guide Itimar Buk did a fantastic job. He is quite passionate about his work and ensured he provided as much detail about the history and culture of Israel. This was our first trip in Israel so to start with Jerusalem and Bethlehem was quite exciting. The trip was well organized and we were briefed at the start of the tour as to what to expect and how to best prepare for the day. The trip was well paced and not rushed and the group size appeared to be appropriate as well. Some of the highlights included following the Via Dolorosa through the stations cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Western Wall, walking through the markets in the Muslim quarter and crossing over to Bethlehem. The only opportunity to improve is the actual pick up from the designated hotels. Our voucher indicated pickup for 7:15am and we were picked up at 8am. During this time we were worried that perhaps we were at the wrong location or missed. A bit more clarity on the vouchers would reduce this concern and calls to the tour company. Regardless everything worked out perfectly and we understand earlier times are listed to ensure travellers are on time and there are no delays. Overall this was a great trip with a very knowledgeable guide Itimar who was quite chilled out and with effort even funny at times . Highly recommended.

I would highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was informative and engaging. He took the time to explain the history behind each stop, and always allowed time for questions. As we rode in our tour bus, he pointed out important sites, and historical facts. The visit to Nazareth allowed for a quick snack, and time to visit some shops, before heading to the Sea of Galilee. Our lunch was delicious, and offered many different options although it was quite pricey...all lunch dishes cost 22 USD, plus beverage and tip. We had the opportunity to be baptized at the Jordan River, which almost turned into a disaster, when we realized we had to bring our own pastor/priest, and we did not have one. We were fortunate to be able to join another group being baptized, but I would caution those wanting to get baptized to come prepared. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the life of Jesus. I felt incredibly enlightened by the experience, and getting baptized at the Jordan River made this tour a dream come true!
