Really great day out. I did look at cheaper options that promised to hit Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Dead see but was glad I chose to go with the established Tour operator. The main criteria for a good tour is a good guide with knowledge and the ability to entertain. Itamar (Moses’s Cousin) was our guide and was really outstanding, great knowledge that was constantly relevant and all delivered in a happy chatty way that made the day fly by. My tip to anyone looking to do this tour, just do it, but take some flip flops to the Dead Sea as the walk down for the water is better with. Thanks Itamar, footballs loss is our gain :-)

We took a tour to Jerusalem and the dead sea from Tel Aviv with BeinHarim tourism services. Our guide Udi was fantastic and really made the entire experience as good as it could possibly be. He arrived at our hotel right on time and was immediately very friendly and helpful. During our drive to Jerusalem Udi gave a lot of very excellent historical information in preparation for our visit. Once in Jerusalem the pace of his guidance was exceptional. We never felt rushed but also never felt directionless. He had a lot of good spots to visit and clearly had contacts in the city to give us the best experience possible. We often beat the rush to visit places. He helped us in shops and stepped in if we were ever getting pressured by merchants on the street. His demeanor and frank commentary on the cities religious sites and history were perfectly matched for us. He was respectful and very knowledgeable about the world in general and truly made the entire experience as enjoyable as I could have hoped. I would 100% recommend this tour and would strongly recommend Udi specifically as a guide. I definitely see myself attempting to take a tour with him again in the future.

Decent experience, Hava was very knowledgeable though the experience felt a bit tourist-trappy at times, particularly at the old markets. Some parts of it we felt we could have done on our own and other parts dragged on a bit. Overall a decent experience.

Dear davideO1423VL, we are very happy to know you enjoyed your guide. We put a lot of effort choosing our guides. Sure you can travel the old city by yourself, but the the benefits and value of a knowledgeable guide is what makes the difference and what makes the tour great.

Kobie was our guide and we had a grand time. He knew all the great places to go and we modified the tour to meet our desires. His mastery of the history of the region, Israel and Jerusem was impressive and made the tour very interesting. We toured with another Bien Harim guide the next day and had a similar experience. The experience will last a lifetime.

If you are visiting Tel Aviv and want to see the major sights in Old Jerusalem, along with going to the Dead Sea you should book your trip with Bein Harim Tourism Services Ltd.

The actual trip was in two parts - the morning spent exploring Old Jerusalem's major tourist attractions, including the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the Western Wall.

On the way to the Old city, we stopped on the Mount of Olives to admire the view of Old Jerusalem from above. We also passed the Garden of Gethsemane.

We entered the old city through the Xion Gate and walked through the alleyways. It was fascinating and like stepping back in time.

Being the Thursday before Good Friday we were told we would not be able to enter the Church of the Holy Sepulcher due to religious processions. However, Lorne's (our guide) timing was perfect as when we arrived the parade had finished and we had the opportunity to go inside.

Although I am not religious, it was amazing to visit the Western Wall and see prayers talking place at the most holiest Jewish site in the world.

Following a break for lunch we travelled to the Dead Sea, which is around 45 mins from the centre of Jerusalem and around 400 metres below sea level.

Once at the Dead Sea we had approximately two hours to explore and do our own thing. It was an amazing experience to float unaided in water which has 12 times the salt of a normal sea and to rub the mud into our skin for its cleansing benefits.

A big thank you goes to Lorne, our Guide. He was very knowledgeable and told us many interesting facts. I certainly learned a lot from listening to him explaining about the sites we were visiting. He did an excellent job.

Over all this trip is well worth the money as it was a full day of exploration and you get to see Old Jerusalem and the Dead Sea.

Good tour to learn more about the history / religion in Jerusalem with the guide Zahi. He did his job very well and we enjoyed the time with him. Tour from Tel Aviv: Elvis Gas Station - Mount Olives (view to Jerusalem) - Jerusalem - Dead Sea. Zahi guided us also to non-Touristic route to avoid the crowd. We hade Falafel and Shawarma for lunch which was unfortunately not the best food and it was expensive too (1x Shawarma / 1x Falafel and 2x drinks for 80 Shekel). We would recommend too eat somewhere else. The A/C in the bus was too cold but they managed to fix it during the tour.
Dead see was very overcrowded, but where is it not...?!
We felt very safe during the tour and we would recommend Bein Harim for this day trip. Many thanks to Zahi and his driver.

Thanks for this account of your enjoyable day tour guided by Zahi. He deserves your praise and feedback especially during this very busy peak period that he managed your tour professionally and smoothly. Not always an easy task. That is a pretty standard price for the meals you had. The Dead Sea facilitated veach is also busy right now. It is the only option we have in that region that suits this tour shedule.The tour attracts many Many travelers. Bein Harim appreciates your kind recommendation

A full day of information about Tev Aviv, Masada and the Dead Sea. The guide was excellent, humourous and personable. I loved the drive and the trip to Masada. I was not happy about the Dead Sea experience as I found the dressing rms to be dirty, no privacy, few places to put belongings, a long line (and this was Nov.) for the shower. So I made a choice NOT to experience the dead sea as the facilities were poor.
