We took a 3 day package shore excursion. Our guide was Dov and he was excellent. Our bus driver was also good. They met us at the port on time each day. Everywhere we went was surprisingly crowded. Dov navigated us through it all and we saw all the highlights promised. Due to crowds, we had to make decisions about a quick stop to eat. We wasted some time going from place to place that wouldn't take too long. It is recommended that the company organize/make reservations in advance to assure we can get in and out. We took the Christian oriented tour. Dov was very knowledgeable and respectful. The pace was very fast. This tour is NOT for mobility impaired. We had some people that just could not do it. There was very little time for photos. While they stated there would be no time for shopping, it would have been so nice to have 15 or 20 minutes in the Marketplace in Jerusalem. So many stalls that we had to whisk by. Communication with Leo was amazing. We had a small problem with the bus being too small on first day, and the second day it was corrected.

I took this amazing tour while in Israel on April 11, 2022. Even though our cruise ship had some unexpected clearance delays into Ashdod that morning that put us hours behind, Israel Guided Tours kept in constant communication with both myself and the ship which set me at ease. Further, our tour guide Annat was EXCELLENT!! Our group were very lucky to have such a fun, vibrant and educated tour guide. Although we had to rush through some places to "make up time" in order to see everything we had planned to see and do, Annat made it happen! And we didn't feel rushed really. She was upbeat, and informative and really wanted to ensure we all got to see and do all the things the tour offered. She really cared a lot about our experience and I for one really appreciated that! She was able to give us all the history as we toured the Holy Land. I also really appreciated the small group size of 16! This tour offered us so much at a great price and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Both the tour guide and the staff member I dealt with were very professional and easy to work with. I would most definitely recommend this tour and this company!

The guide was very knowledgeable. The places of interest were memorable and it's well worth the money. Just a brief note though, if the guide suggests you eat at a restaurant she knows and recommends, be careful. They ripped some of us off and she was in on it all. . 65 us dollars for a small sandwich each and a cold drink. Take something with you if you can. Other than that, a good trip.

My friend & I were looking forward to this 3 day tour! We had this cruise booked for over a year & were with the group of 2 buses. The 2 guides we had on our bus were nice but not very knowledgeable at all. We also did not receive the headsets they promised.Their time management was horrible. We constantly had to remind them of the time so we could get to all the sites we were supposed to go to. The bus driver stopped & got gas & I watched as he would stop it every couple euros then restart. It took over 25 minutes to gas up! We were late to most of the sites, so we had to rush through! The float in the Dead Sea turned out to be a “dip your toe in the water”. One day there was no time or stop for food, so my friend & I had Mike & Ike’s we brought with a little water. Most people were afraid to drink much water because we didn’t know when the next bathroom stop would be. With the heat & humidity, we got so dehydrated because of this. This was definitely not the tour I was hoping for! I wouldn’t recommend this tour.

For a recent 3-day tour with a large group, we used Guided Tours Israel. I would not recommend this company at all! I am only giving it 1 star because there is no selection for 0.

This was a bucket list trip for me. Unfortunately, there were several issues with the tour. Our guide's English left a lot to be desired, and he was very difficult to understand. He didn't wait until the whole group was together before starting his explanations, so unless I was at the front of the group, I missed out on most of what he had to say. In groups of this size, there should have been headsets included. He moved way too quickly from one place to the next, with no time to take in the wonder of what we were seeing. I felt like it was a drive-by tour, where we just had time to snap a photo before being rushed to the next site. We had no time in the markets to shop or grab a bite to eat. Our experience at Masada was a total nightmare. While the overcrowding there wasn't the fault of the tour guide, he disappeared once we got to the top. His delay in getting back down to the meeting point on time caused us to miss a chance to swim in the Dead Sea.

Without a doubt, this is the worst tour I've ever been on. I doubt I will ever make it back to Israel, and I'm so angry that this is the experience I had!

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Jerry! We have told all our friends and family who are green with envy of our time in Israel to use your agency and request Jerry. Jerry had so much energy, his car was very clean, and his knowledge was extraordinary.

We WILL be back in Israel sometime soon and will ensure Jerry is available for a number of days to guide us around. We plan on flying in and staying next time probably when more of the COVID restrictions are eased.

Israel was the highlight of our trip, though the cruise ship was a mess. Thank you so much for all your help with them.

We were impressed with Israel 's progressive and contemporary vibe while still respecting and preserving the history and religions. I read through your disclaimers as you asked before we left, but was in no way disappointed.

We were fortunate to find guided tours israel for our two shore excursions in Israel, one from Ashod for Jerusalem and the Dead Sea and the other from Haifa. Both of our tours were Jewish focused. Our communication with Leo from GTI were great. Our tour guide Haggai was fabulous and extremely knowledgeable and engaging. We can't believe how much we saw and learned during our 10 hour tours. These tours were well worth the money and i highly recommended you use them.

The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. The old city of Jerusalem was great. We opted to take the extended trip to the Dead Sea. Extra money with shower facilities that were poor. Beach area small. I guess it was worth it say I floated in the Dead Sea but would never do it again. Also it added to the length of the time on the road which was long enough, at least and hour each way from the port to Jerusalem. On the down side the mini-bus was cramped, 2 seats across, and aisle, and a one seat row. If you are big, I am 5' 11", 260 lbs., you will be uncomfortable in the two across especially if sharing with another large person. Also, this company does not use the radio transmit to earphone technology. You have to be right up with the guide to hear what she says, which is hard for close to 20 people to do walking through the crowded Jerusalem streets.

The two days we spent in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Dead Sea and Masada were not what was promised. Our guides were nice but very inexperienced. They could not keep our small group together nor were there explanations of what we were seeing. In Jerusalem we walked through the market with no time to stop or to have lunch. I don’t think anyone was given the significance of the Western Wall. As we got to Bethlehem, once again there was no time to stop to eat. We barely had time to walk through the church.
The second day was not any better. Our bus driver was late and then had to stop to get gas for the bus. That was totally unacceptable! Masada was very crowded (through no fault of the tour company) but we were not offered a chance to see the movie presentation which might have helped people understand the significance of the site. Our tour guide was no where to be found once we got to the top. We turned around and took the cable car down. One of the guides decided it would be better to walk down, not knowing how long it would take. That delayed us over an hour.
We only had enough time to dip our toes in the Dead Sea.
I would not consider using this company.

Again – the same group of 72 misled clients. They booked with Bill Netro Tours. He organizes shore excursions for cruisers and makes a fortune on these people. They DID NOT BOOK WITH US DIRECTLY. Only the agent booked with us – 1 person. We probably received one fifth of what his group paid him. He apparently promised them things we never agreed to, for example that we will use whisperers. We never agreed to it. For the price he paid us they received above and beyond what is reasonable. For the price they paid him – they must have had different expectations and we are sorry for their disappointment. We have a money back guarantee if you book with us directly and you will know in advance exactly what will be included in the tours. We are no longer taking large group bookings through a non-licensed agent. You should avoid this arrangement as well and book directly with the tour company so you know exactly what you will receive. Thank you for reading this response.

We had a fantastic 3 day tour in Israel with Guided Tours Israel. From the beginning communication was great and we were well informed about the process from getting off the ship to where we would meet our guide. The information in the emails really set our expectations on the trips.
Our guide Sandy was very knowledgeable and managed to take us to most of the key places despite some obstacles put in our way.
I would highly recommend this company if you are traveling to Israel.
