We actually did three days of tours with GTI and everything was absolutely fantastic. Day 1, Nazareth/Galilee, Day 2 Jerusalem and Bethlehem and day 3 Masada and the Dead Sea. Firstly, the frequent emails and information sent to us in advance by Leo were great. He explained fully how each day would work and he gave updates as to security procedures at Haifa and Ashdod. Each day we were met by our assigned guides, Yonaton (days 1&2) and Ryan (day 3). These two guys were amazing: so informed and knowledgeable, they were genuine experts on their subject and were engaging throughout. Where possible, they managed to get us into/out of places to avoid the huge crowds that you inevitably face. Our day in Jerusalem was on the Jewish holiday of Sukkot which meant the old city, especially the square, was CHAOTIC. However, Yonaton got us there safely despite the massive security presence and large numbers. We were in a group of 16, travelling in modern, air-conditioned mini-buses. I cannot recommend highly enough Guided Tours Israel and the prices were a fraction of the cruise line’s prices.

I feel I must congratulate Guided Tours Israel on the excellent service that they provided. We had very informative updates from Leo before we left on our cruise which was very reassuring. We met our guide Yonathan at Haifa port when we did the Sea of Galilee and Nazareth. There were 16 of us of mixed nationalities. Yonathan was excellent - very informative at all times and took us to all the sites we expected to see. At Ashdod we met Yonathan again and did Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Jerusalem was very chaotic as it was a Jewish bank holiday and there were loads of people everywhere but Yonathan managed to keep us all together at all times and did not lose any of us! The 'wailing wall' was jam packed so we did not actually manage to go and touch it which was a bit disappointing. Bethlehem was much quieter and there was no queuing. Again our guide Mohammed was excellent.
On the 3rd day we all went to Masada and the Dead sea. We had a different guide Ryan who although very informative did not have the same charismatic manner of Yonathan and at times I found him rather brash. My partner loved Masada and wished he could have spent more time there. I would have liked to have had longer at the Dead sea as I felt Ryan rather rushed us there and perhaps a shorter lunch break ( at a very commercialised services type cafeteria and souvenir shop) where we wasted an hour having not very nice food and looking at over priced souvenirs.
Despite a couple of criticisms we had an absolutely fantastic time on our trips out in Israel and Leo is to be congratulated on provided such excellent tours for us all to enjoy

We arranged a 3-day private tour with Guided Tours of Israel for 11 of us while our ship docked in Ashdod and Haifa. We used their service 11 years ago.
Our guide for all 3 days was Ryan. We all agreed that he was one of the BEST guides if not the BEST we ever had in the last 15 years of travelling around the world. Ryan was at the ports before our starting time waiting for us. He was informative, pleasant. passionate about his presentation and professional.
He would adjust his plan after we requested visits to couple of places not in the itinerary. Most importantly, he made sure that we returned to the ports safely before the cutoff time.
Leo in the office was also very informative, giving us clear instructions as to what to expect. He would reply instantly to our inquiries. The vans Leo sent us were comfortable and clean. We had a different driver each day.
Early December is a great time to visit Israel with less crowd and nice and cool temperature.
We learned so much this time from Ryan. It was overall an excellent tour.

Thanks for the fantastic tour. My wife and I travel extensively and have wanted to visit Israel for a long time and are very glad we finally made it.

We visited Galilee, Churches of the Annunciation & Beatitudes, Nazareth, Haifa, and several other sites. Sandy, our guide, did an outstanding job providing not only the facts and details for all the sites but also the historical backdrop of the events, making them relevant, bringing them to life. He also tied together the events from the Christian, Jewish and even some Muslim perspectives which helped me better understand the complexities of life in this part of the world, both historically and today.

Additionally, Sandy made the tour fun adding a wry sense of humor about what was happening during the pivotal times, up to today, when Israel and the Middle East shaped the modern world.

This tour was one of the best we have been on and will be remembered for a long time. Rosemary and I would highly recommend Guided Tours Israel and especially Sandy Kuttler as a guide. Thanks again for making this a highlight of our Middle East cruise.

The tour was just amazing. From the first moment when I was enquiring about the tours the communication was quick and efficient. Leo was very responsive and answered all my questions. I was informed exactly what to expect and not to expect from the tour. Our ship had a delay and lucky enough they did their best to show us all the places in shorter time, although It never felt rushed.
I decided for this company based on the reviews and It was the best choice. My tour guide Ryan was just brilliant. The guy is super knowledgeable and passionated about Israel, you can tell he loves his job. I heard of so many people that was unhappy with their tours, even the ones booked with the ship (which is even more expensive). But in my case, we had nothing but great comments. I did 2 days, one Jerusalem and Bethlehem and Nazareth and Galilee the next day.
I couldn't recommend them enough !!!! It was the highlight of my trip.

We had an excellent tour of Biblical Galilee with Guided Tours Israel. Our guide, Mickey, did a wonderful job of giving us the history of each place that we visited and moving us from place to place so that we didn't miss any of the important sites. I highly recommend Guided Tours Israel not only for the great tour that they planned for us, but for the price and communication before the tour that made the day go very well.

Great tour for the almost entire day.
Tour guide were very knowledgeable explaining all details of the area being visited for almost the entire day. We stopped at the most famous areas with plenty of time to visit and take pictures.
It was a group of 14 persons with a very nice guide with a very good sense of humor.
The only complaint is the pick up location was changed and there was NO ONE to meet the group at the location where people were told to be met. every one was worried looking for the tour van and also calling the tour operator through the emergency number given but no one to give any information about what was happening.
Finally one person showed up and told us the location was changed to another very busy area and no one was there with names of any person.
Other than that everything was great.
This is the only reason for 4 stars.
I recommend this tour company.

This tour group is excellent. Vert nice vans and drivers. The guide, Ryan was amazing. He treated us all with respect and set the pace for the group based on the older and slower people. He was very thorough in his explanations and I highly recommend this tour and especially Ryan!

Our guide - Sandy - was very knowledgeable & kept us entertained with many interesting facts.. It was great to be picked up at the cruise ship. It's a long day of touring, so be tolerant of the traffic. Also, we found things to be expensive for souvenirs & quick lunches (however, they were tasty). Otherwise, a country that has lots to offer.
Important also, Leo was fantastic to work with in setting up this tour - he was very accommodating in these trying times of travelling.

- We had a wonderful two day visit in Israel. Osmir was an excellent guide and driver. He took us to see all of the highlights we wanted to see and gave us plenty of historical information to understand the area. We appreciated his flexibility in selecting restaurants and the amount of time we wanted to spend at each site. I also really appreciated working with your company as your communication was prompt and easy to understand. I would highly recommend using your company to our friends and family!
