History lessons included - Tomir is a wonderful guide, super friendly and with a lot of passion! We got some super interesting insights into the history of Israel as well as Jerusalem. Even though it was a lot of information, Tomir managed to structure everything very well so it was easy to follow. I would definitely book this tour again and highly recommend it!

Wonderful Experience with Beny! - Our tour guide was Beny and I would recommend him 100%. He was very kind, friendly, and made our experience a memorable one. He made sure that we were safe and comfortable during our travels. Beny was very knowledgeable about the history of Israel and taught us a lot about stuff we didn’t know. If you do not know much about the history of Jerusalem, I definitely recommend Beny to be your guide. He took us through the different quarters of Old Jerusalem and explained in detail the history behind it. He also took us to a really good restaurant and we had authentic Israeli food.

Fantastic experience and great learning - We had a fantastic time on our private tour with Avi. My colleagues and I were in Tel aviv on business. We added an extra day to our trip as it was all of our first times in Israel. We opted for a private tour so we could see more faster. Avi came and picked us up at our hotel in Tel Aviv and drove us to Jerusalem. The ride was amazing. He took us the slightly longer way to show us what was happening. He gave excellent explanations of the complicated nature of the city and the disputes over the land. It was eye opening and enlightening. We entered through the Jaffa gate and essentially did a loop around the city. At each point Avi gave us fantastic insight and information into each quarter, the history of the city as a whole, and the amazing sites with in. I won't spoil it for others. I left feeling a much better and deeper understanding of the city and its rich history. The ride home was also very smooth and fun. We discussed everything. Highly enjoyed it and would definitely do another tour.
