Best tour of my trip with Yoav Malachi - The tour led by Yoav Malachi was my favorite of my 15 day trip. He was informative and entertaining. I enjoyed hearing of the history while seeing the sights, and he talked while he drove to my the ride interesting. Such a beautiful, rich history in the area. So glad to be a part of this tour.

Great Day Trip to Key Biblical Sites. - Great day trip. Very comprehensive to many important Biblical sites. Our guide/driver was very knowledgeable and made sure we had enough time to take in every attraction. Just a note about the Baptism site. We were told by the site when we got there that you had to pre-arrange for a priest/reverend, etc. We were lucky to be invited into a small group that had a priest, so it worked out, but that could have went another direction. Long day, but very worth the time and effort.

Holy Land extraordinaire - Roei Talmor our tour guide was passionate, knowledgeable and had such great enthusiasm! My mum felt unwell during the trip and Roei was very caring and took time out to make sure that my mum was ok. Thank you! The River Jordan is beautiful, me and my mum walked in it, submerging our hands, feet etc into the holy river. We visited the the City of Nazareth, the Sea of Galilee to name a few sites. What an amazing experience and memories created! I would highly recommend this tour.

Churches With Amazing Tourguide - First of all, it was an amazing tour, mainly because of the tourguide. But let's start from the beginning. The pick-up was on time and the driving to the first stop was without problems. We were first brought to a parking spot where we then went into our final bus with Michael, our tourguide. Then, while driving to Nazareth, our first stop, he told us many facts about the places we passed and with this gave an introduction to the country. Furthermore, he spoke quite a good English and always named us "Ladies and Gentlemens". I would definitely not mind if someone does not do it, this was just the character of Michael. But he also answered our individual questions pretty well and talked with a lot of enthusiasm. His love for Israel could clearly be seen. Something else I liked quite much was how he presented facts: He always said according to (according to the Bible... according to the Catholics...) With this, he spoke very neutral. Maybe this was a reason why we liked the tour this much. It is not pretty much our taste to visite vaste and holy (catholics or orthodox) Churches, but with the comments of our guide it was presented interestingly. Therefore, I would suggest this tour to you, also because you visit famous places like the city where Jesus was born and the Jordan river. But for sure, it also depends on your taste, whetever you like it or not. For sure, it depends on the tourguide, whetever these churches are presented dry or with emotions.

Well organized tour - The tour completed the entire itinerary without any problems. The guide, always very attentive, showed great enthusiasm with the historical facts covered. The lunch break was good and the restaurant was prepared to receive a large number of tourists from different companies.

Great tour and amazing tour guide - This trip was the highlight of my time in Israel. Itamer was an amazing tour guide- his knowledge of history, Israel, and the Bible all fused to make this trip really memorable. All the sites we visited were amazing, there was ample time at each one but it didn’t feel like we were there for too long, and Itamer did a great job conducting the tour in multiple languages for different people. He truly cared about each person having a great experience. Visiting Jesus place where he grew up and did most of his ministry was truly incredible and the price for the tour was great. If you go, download what’s app because they will communicate with you that way for the pick up and drop off.

The pleasure trip of Nazareth and Galilee tour - The whole trip was very rushed but satisfying. We went to the Church of the Annunciation, the Baptism in the Jordan River, the ruins of Capernaum and the Church of Five Loaves and Two Fishes. The tour guide explained clearly and patiently. The only complaint was that for lunch, we were taken to a restaurant to eat fish, only offers fried fish, kebab skewers and salads for USD25/set, and drinks are charged separately.

More or less. - As soon as we arrived, they put us in a store for half an hour! Then we went to the Basilica of the Annunciation and spent less time there than in the store. In Tiberias we only went to eat at a very expensive restaurant for what was on the menu, which, by the way, was the only option. You couldn't order a single dish. We have not seen ANYTHING of Tiberias. The guide asked for your tip in dollars and even told us what he would like to receive. The other visiting points were normal, since the Spanish that the guide spoke was not well understood.

Too many gift shops, below average over priced lunch, tour OK. - What I don't like about these big tour companies is the BS shops at gift shops so they can make more money. One starts on a bus, they take you to a distribution site to get on another bus. So, forty minutes to an hour later you are on your tour. Then you stop at a gift shop. We were told by the guide that some of the passengers were asking about buying gifts - right. No asked to stop in an over priced gift shop with a single men's room and a single toilet for women. A lot of buses were parked here so, they must pay the guides well. Then we started the tour, the guide k knowledgeable and well spoken. We stopped at a lunch place and we were given three options, a whole baked, fried fish or a kebab. Average would be a complement $25 per Leeds on or $100nis. This is the only option provided. The guide said it would be an incredible lunch. I would disagree. Then we went to the Jordan River, which ended up being a huge gift shop. No one on our bus was baptized, so we hung out in the AC in the gift shop for an hour. I'd round up a group and hire a private driver. These group tours are giant cash grabs, surrounded by minutes of good information.
