Itimar and the team provided an excellent Tour. We learned so much of the culture and diversity of Jerusalem and Israel in general. So much information, it was difficult to absorb it all (triggered many Google searches since) and so many sights seen. The pace was perfect, allowing time to study each place and listen to Itimar give the history. We can just say - superb, and thank you.

I really enjoyed this Jerusalem boutique tour, for several reasons. First of all, we were only 10 people, not 20 to 40 as I've seen most other tour options have. Second, because it started at a normal hour, at 9AM, not at 7, which would mean we'd all be pretty tired (and hungry too, unless you enjoy breakfast at 6AM). And third, the fact that it was the right amount of attractions and in particular, that it included visiting Temple Mountain, which not all tours include. Simon was a great guide, loved his openness and his go-to DIY map he was rolling out for us for historical understanding purposes. And clearly being passionate about these places and what they signify. I also find it a nice touch when a guide has initiatives like getting snacks for guests, while waiting in line somewhere, or when he/she always thinks ahead in accommodating everyone for bathroom stops, like Shimon did. I booked this literally the night before the tour, as a solo traveler, and all details were ready for me in no time. So glad I did!

Driver was on time , very new van, and guide was very good!! He gave us very good explanations about Jerusalem, lot of Historical knowledge and very nice person. Even the restaurant he took us was a very pleasant place. I really reccomend this tour. The only negative point is we need more time to see the sights, but I guess due to time limit this is not really feasible.
