So much to take in! Amazing!

Don was a wonderful driver and guide for our full day Jerusalem, Dead Sea private tour. We had a limited time to take in as much as we could. Having a private guide enabled us to easily navigate many areas and ask questions. He gave us a great taste of Jerusalem and left us wanting to return with our children for a longer trip. Authentic lunch in the old city, note left in the Western Wall (very emotional experience), view of the country on route to Dead Sea. Able to float and self mud treatment at Dead Sea. Camel ride optional. Great history and current status of the areas. We saw many young adults waiting to go back to serve in military after weekend with family.
A great day trip in Jerusalem

Kobie was our guide and we had a grand time. He knew all the great places to go and we modified the tour to meet our desires. His mastery of the history of the region, Israel and Jerusem was impressive and made the tour very interesting. We toured with another Bien Harim guide the next day and had a similar experience. The experience will last a lifetime.
Great Trip!

If you are not in Tel Aviv for long, this is the tour for you! In one day, we saw all the key sites. Our guide (Erez) was excellent, very friendly, knowledgeable and just great fun to be with. Engaged the group well. Erez even messaged ahead of the tour, the things we should bring/consider which was great as no time was wasted on pick up, changing, getting things, etc. As we toured, there were many other tours running by bus and honestly, we are glad we took the private tour as it meant we saw more, where we wanted and less where we did not. Thus resulted in 1.5hrs in the dead sea which was exceptional. Highly recommend this tour.
Wonderful tour with lots to see

Highly recommend this tour - it’s a full day and a busy schedule, but you see so many wonderful things. Hava was our guide for this tour last week and she was wonderful!
Very good tour!
