We were initially booked into the underground city of Jerusalem and City of David tour but unfortunately it was cancelled. Bein Harim let us know and booked us into the Old and New Jerusalem tour instead and it is likely that it was for the best. It was our first time in Jerusalem so exploring the old City and seeing the wailing wall, church of holy sepulchre etc was a really good introduction to it. We had previously been staying in Tel Aviv and brought our suitcases with us, which made for a seamless and efficient means of transfer to Jerusalem for a couple days. Eloy was our guide and he maintained just the right balance between telling us what we needed to know about the various sites we visited and letting us experience it ourselves.

Bein Harim is most appreciative that you have shared for others to read, that you had a great travel experience with us (including getting the transfer to Jerusalem with your luggage and being dropped off at your next hotel there.) There are some logistic constraints, since Covid, so we are grateful that you took the change of itinerary smoothly and had a great touring day with us, both hearing interesting commentary and being able to experience it for yourselves. Hope to see you again sometime soon.

Great day. I was staying out of town so the hotel pick up was perfect for me. The guide was Interesting and the place was beautiful. We did a lot in one day which I like. I will go back soon to do it all alone and take my time by taking buses and trains. Since I only had one day , this was the perfect and easy way to visit Jerusalem.
Lunch isn’t included but you stop quickly and Can have a kebab on a rooftop restaurant for tourists but at least it was quick allowing more time for the visits.
I really enjoyed my day and everything went smoothly. We did have the usual boring 20mn stop in a tourist shop but you can stay outside and take photos in the meantime if you have nothing to buy.
( also just be prepare for an early pick up from your hotel 7:15am and then a bit of a wait to get on a bigger minivan or coach to join your group , just bring your guidebook and read about Jerusalem in the meantime - 30mn wait before we left Tel Aviv, perfect to get familiarise with your day and read about it !)

Thanks for this complimentary review of satisfaction with our tour and our professional guide.(Pity no mention of their name to get the recognition for their efforts, which you so clearly enjoyed.)Thanks for the mention of the shop stop which is also a bathroom stop in the old city, as well as our organized embarkation operation sending travelers off to their designated buses/vans for the day's tour, once they have enjoyed a free morning pickup Yes one certainly needs time on one's own to explore.

From the second Avi picked us up to the second he dropped us off, the day could not have been better.
His knowledge was astounding, he was constantly pointing out sights, ensuring our multi-lingual group understood and always ensured we got the best views/sights of Jerusalem.
He reverence for each site was refreshing and the unique knowledge made the tour. No detail was too small, his patience to explain and storytell was impeccable.
Our introduction to the Yad Vashem, Holocaust Museum was expertly done, especially at such an emotive and important site, and his helpful knowledge on the best way to explore the site and exhibitions ensured we were then able to explore the museum in the best way to take in as much as we did.

Great day, great tour, best guide, couldn't recommend enough.

The tour ticked off a lot of things i wanted to see, and learn about.
However, here are some things which anyone considering should think about.

1. The pick up process (from 640am) was to collect people/guests from various locations for DIFFERENT tours (not this one). There was a 40min delay due to 1 guest not at designated pickup location on time
2. We were driven somewhere outside the city to be transferred to respective mini-vans, not bus.
3. Then went to pick up more people at the University in Jerusalem
4. The tour only started after 9am
5. In the old City, after a wonderful experience in Church of the Holy Sepulchre, we were ushered into a gift shop with expensive jewellery (so, exit quickly and politely)
6. For lunch, around 1 something, we were brought to a place to choose CHICKEN (50sh) or FALAFEL (40sh) pita. All 18 of us were made to sit on 1 long table against the wall, despite the place being empty.
The staff were busy talking loudly and overall the atmosphere was quite unpleasant.
7. The guide (Moshe Müller) was very knowledgeable but it felt like we were in a classroom being lectured and having to watch out for pop quiz questions thrown at us.

Dear Gptravels72, Thanks for sharing this experience. Van changes are sometimes required, indeed for reasons of not letting everyone travel around the city to fetch others. We have yet to crack this!!! how one can bring over 120 people from different destinations city-wide going on different tours to their own designated buses. quickly and smoothly. We succeed almost every day! We will certainly take up with the restaurant proprietor what you mention regarding noisiness and seating arrangements. Moshe is a highly experienced tour guide. Sorry that you thought his manner was teacher-like. Sincerely, Bein Harim team

I only had a day of on a business trip and booked as a recommendation from my hotel the tour with Bein Harim. Our tour guide and driver Yoav made it the best tour. He has a profound knowledge of the history of the city combined with good sense of humour at the right time. Thank you for an unforgettable day.

We had a very knowledgeable and fantactic tour guide, not only he was well versed in the history of the sites, he is passionate about Jerusalem, had vast archeological information and fantastic public relation skills.
He made our day memorable, fun, & imparted a deep & meaningful oratory, emphasising on beginnings, origins and the current situations.
His methodology of conducting tours, involve group participation & that was a key element of intellect that we parted away at the end of the tour.

Our tour guide Yoav Malachi, from "Bein Harim Tourist Service" was more than just a tour guide, he is an ambassador of Jerusalem.

We count ourself fortunate to have him with us throughout the tour and highly recommend to anyone visiting Jerusalem to engage with him.

Yoav, thank you for the experience, the humour, the impartial narrative throughout the tour & most of all thank you for your friendship.

This was a very interesting trip and our guide, Hava, was very knowledgeable and funny. It is a very good introduction to Jerusalem, although, considering the time limits, one would probably need at least a second visit to see everything more thoroughly.
2 caveats : lunch is organised but not included in the price. Also, before visiting the Holy Sepulchre Church, we were invited to a shop selling, among other things, jewellery and religious artefacts. While the choice was impressive, the prices were a total rip-off.
