Very good tour, but lay off the hard-sell and the nationalism
Nov 2019
I took the 1 day tour of Galilee/Nazareth with this company, and overall I had a very positive experience, and I thought it was good value for money - with a few caveats.

First, the good points; everything was exactly as advertised, we left on time and arrived on time. We saw all the key places in Galilee, we had abundant time, the lunch (not included in the price) was good, and the tour guide Dan P was really informative - I was dazzled by the amount of information he provided about locations such as Emmaus, for example. For less than $100, it was a really excellent tour overall, and I felt it gave a very good impression of that part of the world.

2 negative points; the 'shopping stops' in Nazareth and the Jordan river baptism site were un-necessary and too long, I felt. No need for the 'hard-sell' like this on a day tour costing $100. And secondly, athough Dan was a genial, informative and kind guide, I really wish he didn't repeatedly say things like, 'I love my country, Israel', 'I am really proud of Israel', 'I think Israel is the greatest country in the world', etc. Given the controversial nature of the Israel/Palestine situation, UN condemnations of Israeli settlements, etc., this was really not needed. Not meaning to sound too critical, because he really was an excellent guide, but lay off the nationalism juice, Dan!

Thanks for sharing your sincere praise on our tour and your guide Dan P. He is indeed worthy of the honorable mention and deserves such compliments for his efforts, professionalism and his wealth of knowledge that he shares with his travelers. All embossed with a passion and personal spice.Dan is known to be very passionate about his work and and his love of this country. Both attributes that certainly enhance him being an outstanding tourguide. so we see this as added attirbutes to his dedicated performance. Sorry ,but tactfully we are sure you understand we will not react to your personal impression of and interpretation of his sentiments expressed. The stops at the shop in Nazereth is mainly for the bathroom , and at Jordan River ,Yardenit there is no other way to access the Baptismal site.You are not in any way obligated to purchase anything, but it is a walkthrough to the riverside pavillion. We are glad though that you came away enlgihtened from the region visited.

You’ve Malachi
Sep 2019 • Solo
Our guide today, Yoav Malachi, is about the best I’ve ever had, including tours in Europe. He provides the historical context of what we are seeing and is both knowlegeable and respectful of the significance of the site. He also chooses the best of the best. Plus, he levens the information with humor where appropriate.

Best tour we took in Israel
Apr 2019 • Friends
We booked Masada, Jerusalem, and this tour. We had Isaac and he was fantastic! He went out of his way to make us comfortable, give us info, give us space to sleep on the bus ride back, and took as many pictures of the group as we could. Jerusalem felt very contrived and commercialized. Jesus spent most of his life in this area, and it was amazing to walk where He walked. Highly recommend this tour!

An amazing journey around the Sea of Galilee with awesome guide Yoav
Dec 2018 • Couples
This trip was part of our 25th wedding anniversary celebration and what a way for Yoav to start the journey with none other than the Wedding Church at Cana. Upon learning of our important milestone, Yoav went out of his way to arrange on the spot an impromptu wedding vows renewal for us with a Franciscan priest. He even took the role of a photographer while the rest of our tour group served as our wedding guests and witnesses! That was a totally unexpected event which, by itself, made this experience become part of our life-long memories. The rest of the journey further solidified our Christian spiritual re-immersion as we walked through the path of Jesus: at the Mount of Beatitudes with breathtaking view of the Sea of Galilee from Domus Galilaeae; in a small Christian church at Capernaum; the extraordinary excavation of the 2000-year old Ancient Galilee Boat; and finally at the ruins of Magdala in the town of Migdal known as Mary Magdalene's birthplace and where Jesus once preached at a synagogue. This journey could not have been more dramatic with Yoav's special way of building up the stories along the way with unsuspecting clues from various natures found around the Sea of Galilee. Nice job Yoav. Highly recommended!

Great gift shop
Mar 2018 • Family
This place has expanded their gift shop and it is very nice. The process of finding the boat is very interesting and I have been here twice as a part of a tour but I would not pay to go through this.

Great full day tour
We highly recommend this tour. The guide, Ami, was excellent and he took us to a lot of places that he also really liked. One of them was even not on the program. Thanks for such a great day.
