The tour guide paid attention to things like we get enough water, toilet, safe shopping, being mostly in the shadow etc also that we however didn’t visit 100s of places but few and those we had time to see so the tour wasn’t demanding, we didn’t run from a place to another. The tour guide is a real entertainer and was easy to follow the history lesson he provided in the beginning, when we visited a certain place we already knew what it is about - at least briefly. Our tour guide was Yoav.

This was my second tour w/ Bein Harim and again it was excellent. I was lucky enough to have Itamar as my guide both days. His energy, humor, knowledge, and easy communication made the 12+ hour day effortless, insightful, and fun.

For anyone looking to really dig in on Jerusalem, I’d recommend a full day (or multiple days) there. This tour does provide a great exposure to the Christian side of Jerusalem, but it only touches on the Muslim and Jewish components. You’ll visit The Western Wall, of course.

I was skeptical about spending my limited time at The Dead Sea. It was cool to float so effortlessly, but personally, I would have preferred to spend more time in Jerusalem or visit Bethlehem instead. I would not knock the tour or my guide for this because it was great for what it is. If you’re not limited on time, then certainly make this stop. One callout is that at the bar I ordered two frozen alcohol drinks and one draft beer and it was $50 (USD). I thought that was a bit much, but that’s the rub for touristy places like this I suppose.

Overall, I highly recommend this tour, the company, and my guide, Itamar.

Our guide (Yoav Malachi) showed great responsibility for our safety, on roads and in the town. Along the bus rides and in Jerusalem he provided a nice mix of history of Israel and the religions, cultural do's and don'ts, and fun facts. It was very easy to follow since he started with overviews and then detailed it at the corresponding places (and photo spots). He is well connected with many locals, so that he phoned and lead us through a very optimal route. I learned a ton, with ease and fun. Would do it again!

Very well organised tour, you get to do a lot in the time. Yoav provided lots of interesting facts both during the drive and at the sites and managed the group well keeping us to time but not making it ever feel rushed. Our deiver Avi was excellent too and we felt safe on the roads.

This is a well organized tour and exactly matches the tour description. Our tour guide was funny and informative, he was happy to show us as much as he could.

I personally didn't really like the gift shop stop (where we stayed for about 30 minutes), but it's acceptable, some tourists want to bring something home and it's impossible to keep 40+ people together if everyone goes into different shops.

January is considered to be off season, but even now Jerusalem was a bit crowded, be prepared.

We did Jerusalem and Dead Sea 1-day tour. Our guide Yoav was fun and knowledgeable. He made jokes on the way and also explained the history and do's/don'ts in Jerusalem. We learned a lot and enjoyed the tour, it is perfect for first time visitors. Plus points to Yoav of handling the chaotic traffic very calmly and not rushing on the streets.

We struggled with having the lunch way too late (or not knowing what time the lunch break is) and not being able to buy snacks on the route. It would have been nice to know so we could plan some more snacks with us.

Our group of 3 missed the bus and had to take a taxi to the next stop not because we were late but because the location of pickup was not accurate enough. Communication with the office was not friendly .Avi, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly
Only one option for where to buy souvenirs and only 2 lunch options from one restaurant, ( it smells of kickbacks).
Also, asking for a good reviews and gratuities is
Very tacky.
Next time I'll take the train and explore at my own pace and eat where I want when I want.

Dear R7915MTjenniferk We are regretful that there was this misinformation. Being late cannot always be blamed on the tour company, even if the circumstances caused the delay. Avi deserves your feedback for his efforts. Lunch has to be at an organized restaurant that caters to groups. In Jerusalem Old City, people get lost and delay tour schedules (years of experience in trying to run it at your preference). As for the Dead Sea - very few options are available in this barren unpopulated region. Group tours are suited for those who can go at a group pace. Traveling solo is obviously a whole different experience. Sincerely, Bein Harim team

I learnt so much from the trip. The tour was planned well with good spots of time for reach activity. The tour guide, Itamar, was very passionate and you can tell that he really internalised the knowledge. His group management was excellent and we all achieved so much in a short span of a day. Well done Itamar!

This tour was a bucket list tour - the beautiful city of Jerusalem was everything I thought it would be, including the holy church which I wasn’t expecting to feel so spiritual. The Dead Sea was also an experience in itself, although be careful walking in or you’ll end up with cuts and bruises like me. Our tour guide Yoav was fantastic, he really knew his facts and the day was genuinely interesting. Cannot recommend enough

We had a great tour with Yoav (driver and tour guide). It is a small group trip by operator. Even though the price is slightly higher than at other operators, it is worthwhile.  I started from the Tel Aviv hotel, and he patiently explained a lot of historical facts along the way. He is very professional and knowledgeable instructor, and he explained everything about Jerusalem and nearby places. Everything is on time. Even in the pouring rain, we managed to visit almost all of the promised locations in Jerusalem. Throughout the journey, I was never bored.

Highly recommended. 

Thanks, Yoav, for a memorable trip.
