wonderful tour it was pouring rain so it was challenging, tour guide was very knowledgeable. I scheduled to go back in October 2024. I hope we are able to go back and country is open for tourist. Praying for all.

This was a whirlwind of a tour lots to see in a short space of time, be warned it's a lot of walking up and down stairs narrow lanes throngs of people (so very rude) Dakel our tour guide moved at brisk pace which is understandable because there's lots to cover plus we had to do the Dead sea tour the other have of the day .However our friend has mobility issues so it was too difficult for her so Dakel got the driver Mohammed to come & get her where she spent 2 1/2 hrs at his house with his family. Having said that the tour was a wonderful experience from an historical/biblical & cultural aspect it check all the boxes. Dakel u need to get a flag so it's easy to see u. Swimming; I mean floating in the Dead sea was an amazing experience. I was also amazed at the Bedouin people living out in desert with their goat & sheep they live such simple lives.

It was just great - Jeruzalem- the best parts combined with swimming in the Dead Sea - and with a great friendly guide, just 5 of 5 ;-))

We have 24 people from cruise ship. We arranged 2 private tours with Guided tours Israsel, Jerusalem and Dead Sea tour from Ashdod and Sea of Galilee from Haifa. Our meeting time was 9AM on our first day in Ashdod. However when the first group of us got to terminal at around 8, we found that our guide Gil was already waiting for us there. This was very comforting for us, because it was our first time visiting Israel and the border control from cruise ship was very confusing. The Dead Sea and Jerusalem trip was wonderful. The bus was almost new with good air conditioning. Gil was very knowledgeable and was trying to show us as much as possible. The trip was very tiring for some of us of course, and very inspiring for the rest. The second day was same. We saw Gil right after we got off the ship with no surprise. We went to a lot of places. It was wonderful. I do recommend Guided Tours Israel for their professional arrangement. If my family were to visit Israel again we would go with them again for sure.

The Dead Sea is once in a lifetime experience. Everyone should do it once. Was disappointed in Guided Tours Israel. We had to walk out of the gates of the cruise port because driver couldn’t get in. Next day the guide was 30 minutes late. No notifications to let us know what was going on. Made lots of travelers very anxious. Also, our guide had our names on his cell phone instead of a sign. So went wondering to try to find our names.
