I just wrapped up a trip on which I went on five tours with Bein Harim: Caesarea/Acre/Rosh Hanikra, Bethlehem/Jericho, Masada/Dead Sea, City of David, and Jerusalem in the footsteps of Jesus. I had a fantastic time on every one! The guides were great: Jael, Itamar, Gleizer (I hope I spelled that right!), Dan, and Ezer were knowledgeable, friendly, and took care of every detail throughout the day. Itamar was super funny and also read several Bible passages to help us understand sites we were visiting, which I greatly appreciated. Gleizer really went above and beyond to make sure each person on the tour enjoyed it as fully as possible. The whole company seem to be wizards of organization, and Hassan, one of the drivers, was particularly helpful when I had to make a transfer. Overall, I was very impressed and definitely recommend touring with Bein Harim!

Obviously, for Christians, a first visit to Israel has to include Bethlehem. Thank goodness we were in Israel in May before the heavy tourist season during the summer months. I am not sure how they get all the tour busses through the tight streets in Bethlehem during high season! We got to see all the sights involved in the birth of Jesus with a well versed Palestinian Christian Guide. Ami was our guide from Israel and he was wonderful. He had a very good sense of humor, engaged the tour participants and his background as a PhD in Archeology was a tremendous asset when we toured Jericho, the oldest City in the world! The ruins that they are continuing to explore show how the early inhabitants used the water supply present at the site to allow them to remain in the middle of an otherwise barren dessert beginning as many as 6,000 years ago. We also visited the Jordan River where you can be "baptized" in the same waters where Jesus was baptized. This day tour was part of the 4 day Christian tour that my wife and I booked with Bein Harim as part of our visit to Israel. Essentially what it consisted of was 4 one day tours as we had 4 different tour guides for the 4 days and mostly different tour participants each day. It certainly gave us the overview we wanted during our visit. Lots of walking, so be prepared!

Itamar was our extremely knowledgeable guide. He was so passionate about informing us about all the places we saw plus additional information as we moved between sights on the bus.
We had a long day out but came back to our hotel well satisfied that we had enjoyed such an amazing and informative tour.
Thank you Itamar.

This was the worst tour I ever took. Very expensive, and very touristy. We were brought like sheeps in the bus to "the good christian gifft shopp", where we spent more that one hour, instead of visiting the real Bethlem, the ewall, bansky graffitis etc. In the gift shop where we were more than one hour we were suposed to buy original "chistian this" done by the good Christian minority. The theme was all the time racist, dontr buy anbything from muslim, only from the chriustian minority. It felt racist. I droped off from the tour and explored myself, no bas non crhistian tried to rob me or to sell me anything. If I pay morew than 100 dollars, I expect not to be send to tourist traps where the company gets comissions. I dropped of at half tour, no refund. I recomment any well travel person to avoid this tour, You can go to Bethlehen by bas for 5 shekkels.

Dear BAJeff, We are sorry for this disappointment with our tour service but can object to the harmful title, intended by your anger. We are certainly not what you state, and as you see, over 8300!!!! 94% excellent reviews on this very platform prove it. So we beg to differ! Group tours are not always suited to all kinds of travelers, clearly, you did better on your own. We will not comment on our tour guide, who is renowned for his pleasant manner, informative commentary and having a great persona. Truly a beloved one on most tours. We do stop at one shop, mainly for the bathroom! it is unlikely and we find it hard to believe a stop of 1 hr, we will certainly check with him, simply not in keeping with the schedule. Indeed NO REFUND available for anyone who leaves the tour, on their own accord, and for whatever reason. Company strict policy and a worldwide accepted one too. Some travelers do best on their own schedule and itinerary. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Services team

I had a blast with Bein Harim tourism! Finally in 1 week, I boked 3 daily tours with them! The online reservation is fast, the confirmation is received very fast by email. Pick up point, all information etc. are well detailed. I felt safe, informed and comfortable with them. My guide was amazing! I had 3 guide, each for a tour, all of them was amazing! They know they job, very very professional, calm and client oriented. I wasn't expect so much. From the cowboy guide with a hat to Moses's nephew, all the guide was extremely professional and nice. I wish I stay more than a week to book more tour with Bein Harim. I will definitely come back again and will book again with Bein Harim.

Avishi and Danny on the Bethlehem & Jerico tour, Uvi on the Jerusalem Old and New tour, and Udi on the Nazareth, Capernaum and Sea of Galilee tour were all GREAT tour guides

I did these three tours with Bein Harim on three different days from Tel Aviv. Advertised pick up was 0655. Pick up was right on schedule all three days.

Their operation is a MASSIVE logistic exercise, with numerous exchanges of customers between buses going various places. It was all executed FLAWLESSLY all three days.

The tours were thorough, professional, enjoyable and a good value for the price.

I prepaid for lunch all three days but don't recommend it. The Jerusalem lunch was ok, but I recommend finding better on your dime. The Jerico meal was Excellent but prepay was not any more convenient. The meal in Magdalena on the way to Capernaum was not that good. The people who went to the Shawarma place instead said it was excellent.

Bein Harim Tourism Services has my strongest recommendation. There is no reason I would use any other tour operation in Israel.

It was a very enjoyable and informative trip. Our guide, the "famous" Dan Porges (I called him that, because he was recommended by the people I have met earlier) has a lot of information about the places we visited and even fun to talk to. He also have information about the places along the way to the site we visited. So even on the long drive from Tel aviv to Bethlehem, you get to learn a lot. Thank so much for the wonderful experience.

Dan Porges as the guide added so much to our day trip tour! Not only was he very knowledgeable, but he was very personable and entertaining, too. We enjoyed several conversations with him. He added tidbits of information about many things as we drove through various areas. He, also, chose an excellent place for all of us to eat as a group.
Thank you, Dan Porges, for giving us and our two adult sons an excellent tour!

The day tour exceeded my expectations. Our guide Dan Porges speaks excellent German and impressed with a lot of detail and contextual knowledge, which made the tour very interesting and entertaining. He was very attentive to the wishes of the groups and made the day tour as pleasant as possible. I also really liked the rhythm, it was a good mix of activity and driving despite the many stops, which made the day very relaxed. I will choose again this provider for day tours on my next visit to Israel!

It was another tour we took with Bein Harim. This time we had Jacob as our Israeli tour guide. Obviously, the tour is with while to take. The guide... not. He is knowledgeable, but he should not be treating all of us, tourists on the bus, in "hey you! "kind of manner. He has a great command of English, but his enunciation is awful.
I also think stop at souvenir shop at Bethlehem over an hour(!) and over an hour launch stop should be shorten.

Thanks for sharing that this was the nature of your experince. Jacob will be called upon to take heed of such behavior and be more discreet and respectful in his approach. Agreed it is not acceptable and not nice to feel as you did. Will find out why the shop stop was so long. Thanks for expressing a vote of confidence in our services as your title refers to.
