City of David and underground Jerusalem
I did this tour with a small group guided by Joseph. He was a very knowledgeable guide, who shared with us everything we need to know about the history of the city of David. He was very jolly and entertaining. Everybody in the group had a good time with him. He is very effective and knows how to make the tour fun, despite of the long walks and the heat. He is highly commended.

Ben knew his Biblical history quite well. He used the Bible"Tanach" whenever he could find a citation to relate to what we were seeing from a past excavation. He seemed to care greatly about what he was showing and sharing with us. We felt his emotion. He saw our trip through to the end. We highly recommend him as a tour guide.

Tour sights super transportation terrible
Day was as follows:
Met at 8:30 am.
Drive to meeting points and pickup of others 90 minutes wasted
Visited sights as described

3:30 pm back on bus for additional 90 minutes to back to dropping off for connections.
Would rethink using Ben Harrem tours bc of this.
Tour guide should use headsets and microphones bc very difficult hearing descriptions of sights.

Dear Marc, Bein Harim is regretful that you were essentially NOT satisfied with the getting to and from your tour. We take such feedback seriously and therefore provide detailed answers and insight. We contend with major transport matters and logistics daily, through a complex system, however. We are certainly pleased you were satisfied with the main and central part of the tour: its itinerary locations, guide and guiding. Thanks too for the mention of the audio operation, it is presently being investigated. Due to the rising volumes of guests in our groups, and whom we only see for a day, we are checking options where we get the earphones back. This is huge daily maintenance and operational challenging procedure. But thanks for giving it a suggestion. There is a law that amplification equipment may NOT be used at public locations therefore the guide cannot simply use a loudspeaker at any stop. We sure hope you will give us another chance one day to offer an experience of the high standard, as we have earned on this platform. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Service team

A Different Look at Jerusalem
Dec 2018 • Solo
This trip was a wonderful first visit for me to Jerusalem. It began at the Mount of Olives overlooking the city, then on to the City of David, outside of the city wall where Jerusalem actually began. We walked through amazingly ingenious sewage tunnels, the pool of Siloam (where Jesus had healed the blind man), the Western Wall, and Jerusalem quarter. He also took us to the room of the Last Supper and David’s tomb.
My guide, Eyal Shoval, was incredibly knowledgeable about all of the sights and helpful in both giving background and answering questions. He was patient with all of the different tourists and points of view on our tour and was able to give both historically and Biblically significant information.
As an aside to the tour itself, at the end of the tour, Bein Harim had arranged for a taxi to get me back to my bus to Tel Aviv (I was the only person coming from Tel Aviv on this particular tour). Eyal waited with me for over an hour for a taxi that never showed up and then helped to get me into a city bus to a hotel and cafe to wait for my Tel Aviv bus to arrive. It took over two hours in all, but he was incredibly patient and helpful the entire time.
I highly recommend both this tour and guide!
