Visit Jerusalem’s holy sites on a full-day tour that explores Jewish, Christian, and Muslim heritage. Winding streets in the Old City mean it can be hard to get your bearings, but this tour starts with a drive to the Mount of Olives for big views across the historic center. After that, a walking tour explores the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Via Dolorosa, Western Wall (Wailing Wall), and more.

I cannot begin to describe how fantastic a time Yoav was able to provide during this tour- full of enthusiasm and lots of hilarious jokes that had the group cracking up at every turn. I was especially impressed by the immense knowledge he had about each of the attractions we visited, including some interesting yet obscured facts only a guide with his level of training would know. Furthermore, what I was especially impressed about was how Yoav got to know on a personal level every member of the group before the end of the day, including where we were from. This is not something I have seen before in any of the group tours I have been on, and is a huge accolade to Yoav as well. In short, I can safely recommend this tour to the highest possible degree. And I would also recommend that travelers request to be on a tour with Yoav to guarantee a fantastic experience. Great job Yolev (from 'Newcastle')!

This was a brilliant tour and far exceeded my expectations. Yoavs energy, knowledge and humour throughout the day is what made this the best trip I booked in Israel. I almost toured around the Old City by myself and the this was a last minute decision, it was definitely the right one! I cannot recommend this enough :) thank you Yoav for making this a memorable day!

This tour was excellent. It was recommended by an acquaintance that does private tours but was away when I was visiting. I only had a few days in Jerusalem, had a lot of things that I wanted to see; and this tour covered them all. Our guide, Liat, was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. Also, I wasn’t sure what to expect since I was touring on a Saturday (Shabbat), but we really still had access to everything. It was excellent. Thank you.

Ari did a great job supporting both English and French tourists. He also got us to go through the Church of Holy Sepulcher before it got completely crowded. The only thing to keep in mind is the description included the Via Dolorosa but it's not the entire Via Dolorosa. We came back a few days later and did the entire Via Dolorosa on our own.

Thanks very much for this rave review of 5 stars of our tour guided by Avi. We are so thrilled you came away with a memorable, enlightening and enjoyable experience. He deserves your acknowledgement for the great job he did. Indeed it is not possible to follow all the stations, and wisely so, you returned to do it fully at a later stage, but already had some orientation. Hope to see you again some time.

The tour was actually very well organised, at least for us. The pick-up spot was local and very close, and we were fortunate to get one of the mini-bus tours (16 people) rather than the large bus. We were also very fortunate to have Norburt as our guide, as he was enthusiastic, funny, and very fluent!

We booked our tour for a Saturday, which meant traffic was low, and he took us around to see a few 'extra' things on the way back, after completing what was considered the whole tour.

Everything was done quite well, except for one complaint. I was interested in getting souvenirs, and would have liked a bit of time to shop in the marketplace. The tour company arranged for us to have about 10 minutes or so to shop in one of the "Ministry of Tourism Approved" places. I found them high-priced and pushy, and did not enjoy that part of my experience.

However, I am rating the tour itself, not the shopping. The tour was amazing and informative, so that gets the five-star rating from me!

Be aware, though...it is a lot of walking, including over uneven pavement and stones, up uneven stairs, and for June, it was also hot. Just keep that in mind.

Thanks for this honest review of your satisfaction of the tour guided by Norbert. He sure is worthy of your praise and feedback. We are always happy to read when travelers come away with a memorable and enlightening tour experience. We do have a designated shop stop, as we cannot let travelers wander off on their own in the Old city. as inevitably always get lost,and cause delays todisrupt tour shedule. Yes it hot in June, and the Old CIty is crowded indeed.

Liat our tour guide was so well prepared to guide our group thru Old Jerusalem and educate on the holy sites. Her delivery is clean, it was like listening to an audio book. She speaks 5 languages fluently and said the same info in English and Spanish. What a wonderful way to spend a day being filled with history and blessings. I will request her to be my guide when I book another tour.

I went on this tour with a friend and had a fantastic time. Itamar was our tour guide and did a fantastic job guiding us through the old city. I feel like without Itamar this tour just wouldn’t have been the same. I’ve been on a tour of Jerusalem before, but this one was much better! Abraham was also our driver and did a great job getting us to and from Tel Aviv. Highly recommend this tour to anyone!

We were fortunate to have Shmil Afias as our guide to both Old Jerusalem and to the Sea of Galilee tour. He explained many, many interesting aspects of Israel to us, which enriched our experience a great deal. His knowledge and enthusiasm ensured that we had two wonderful days - days which our group will never forget. I highly recommend Shmil Afias as a Guide.

I booked a day tour to the old city of Jerusalem with Tourist Isreal and found myself on a Ben Harim tour with our incredibly charismatic and knowledgeable guide, Norbert. He is a talented story teller, weaving history in with anecdotes and humor, making for a really interesting and informative tour. Our bus driver, Avy, was also delightful, keeping us safe and on time. If I'm ever back in Israel, I'd definitely book directly with Ben Harim Tours.
