This is my second time doing this tour and it is still fantastic. I did this tour by myself years ago and now did the tour with my family. I loved it then and I loved it now. The tour was informative and entertaining. Anna the tour guide was amazing. She brought props to help illustrate the points she was making. Highly recommended.

PERECT introduction tour to Jerusalem. Easy location to meet the tour.
Our guide was interesting - Talked the right amount - knew how to move around crowds

Constructive criticism: Group needs to be under 25, Guide needs to have poll with a Red Flag

We had Anna as a guide, and she really was excellent at her job! The tour covered well the city's history and the most important sights. We had a great day, learned a lot and had unforgettable experiences, including a visit to the Wailing wall (not just looking from a distance, but actually going to the wall), walking the Via Dolorosa and standing at the Temple Mount between the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock. I really recommend this tour as a way to get to know the Old City of Jerusalem!

We had Mr. Omer Cohen as our guide, and he was great. He had expansive knowledge of the Old City and the impact of the three religions on Jerusalem. He brought a 3-ring binder with maps, diagrams, photos etc. for help in explaining, which was very informative. He had a good sense of humor, too! Be advised - there is no getting around a LOT of stair-climbing and crowds in Jerusalem! But the tour was well-paced, and the optional lunch at a great hummus restaurant was reasonably priced and delicious. We recommend!
