See almost everything with great guides.
I was quite worried though when our driver hit 155 km/he on the return trip from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv and then abused our guide in a very chauvinistic way.
A great trip

Willing to change my trip when I hurt my ankle on a scooter that do send you through shops to spend money
For the money, it should have been better...

We planned a trip to Israel in May of 2020 and I made the hotel reservations and thought we would book day tours when we arrived. However, the pandemic occurred and the trip needed to be cancelled.

Israel had reopened and we decided to go, but in I had had some health issues and decided to use a tour company to facilitate our trip and make it easier.

Our Tour was a 12 day tour (there was not an option for that in the drop down menu above). This included a side trip to Petra. I relied on Bein Harim's expertise in planning our trip and thought that is what I paid for. The end of our trip was a fiasco and left a bad taste in my mouth. "Rozan" made our flight into Eliat around 1pm so by the time we got to the hotel and checked in, this day was basically a waste. We were initially ok with that because we were excited to go to Petra the next day.

Our flight back to Tel Aviv was scheduled at 8pm the next day. The hotel staff informed us that we would not be able to make our fight due to the tours from Petra always arrive later in the evening. I emailed Bein Harim several times to inquire if this was true and they said yes and cancelled my tour to Petra. I would have never flown down to Eilat. This was a complete waste of time and I could have stayed an extra day in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Wasn't I paying for their expertise in not only booking the tour to Petra but also the appropriate flight times? They did return the cost of the Petra Tour after I emailed them when I got home-not sure why this wasn't immediately refunded? I requested that the flight tickets be refunded but they declined. Perhaps Rozan is new and mad a mistake in how the flights were booked, but Bein Harim should have had better customer service.

They were a couple of other glitches but I decided to give them 3 stars because it was nice to be picked up in an air conditioned bus to all the sites. I felt safe and comfortable. Out of all the tours we took, there were 3 guides that were stellar. I'm sorry I don't remember their names, one said he was originally for Argentina, one I believe he his name was Ithamar,( he said he was the nephew of Moses) and a lady with shoulder length grey hair who was our guide to Nazareth and Galilee. These 3 were very knowledgeable and interesting.

One thing I did not like was and am writing this for others, is they stop for lunch at certain restaurants they must have a deal with. One restaurant in the old town of Jerusalem only gave 3 choices and seemed expensive. We opted out and went someplace with many options and was cheaper. We just made sure we told our guide and returned on time when the tour started again. Also, something we didn't know, if the tour starts early before your hotel's breakfast buffet opens, you can ask if they can pack you a breakfast in lieu of the buffet. (I learned this from a fellow traveler)

Also be prepared that you will be taken to stores and be stuck there for 30-45 minutes. Supposedly these are stores that have the best prices. I understand this is how tourism works but I did feel for me this was a waste of time.

So would I book them again? No, maybe for a day trip I would ,but not for them to book my hotels, flights and all my tours. I do not feel the cost of their package was worth it since they blundered my Petra Tour.
Depends on the guide

My husband and I did 5 days of 1 and 2 day tours with Bein Harim. We had a different tour guide for each tour, which was expected. I would say the tours were very different dependent on the guide. The guides knowledge of history, the sites, religious history, and English varied greatly. I would rate the tours 4/5 stars on average.
Itamar and Dan were amazing guides 5/5 stars.
Avishai was a very good guide, fun, but could have provided more information about the areas and things we passed on the drive 4/5 stars.
We had 2 other guides, one friendly, and fairly knowledgeable 3/5 stars; the other guide was oddly grumpy, but in a comical way. 2/5 stars He mostly provided anecdotal stories and would have gotten more out of the tour, if we had just been dropped off at the sites and told what time to return to the bus.
I think my biggest frustration with Bein Harim is that I was offered a discount for the tours prior to booking, and when I booked it pended the discounted rate on my credit card, but once processed, charged the full amount. When I attempted to contact Bein Harim, the said they would take care of it, but they never changed the amount charged to my card.
Safe and comfy

Pick ups were on time and distribution to destination buses went well. Tour guides were too talkative at times and I assume it was because they wanted a good tip. Dealing with everything was fine except getting response through email. We were getting a refund due to them canceling Petra tour. We had to make several phone calls to the office about the refund and some people we spoke with in the office were a little rude. Finally got to talk to someone who was helpful and nice. Overall Ben harim did well considering how busy they are.
