Great tour to Jerusalem and Bethlehem incl. history lesson
Apr 2020
The day tour to Jerusalem and Bethlehem was very interesting. The group was quite small and we got a great overview of the history and tensions between Israel and Palestine. Amir Call Or was a great guide. I would book a tour with him again anytime. For the Bethlehem part and we also had a local guide who arranged for us to visit the tomb of Jesus without waiting in line. I highly recommend Bein Harim Tourism Services.

Itamar, Arthur, and Martin- will always remember I traveled with your guidance
Nov 2019
A long overdue review.... I always wanted to but didn't find the time until now. I often look back to the trip in November, seeing Itamar as he called each and everyone on the bus. He shared the new joy of Arthur's being again a proud grandfather and read the bible as Arthur delivered smooth bus ride on what I think back as a magical journey through the Holy Land. Martin was our PA guide and did a great job. None of us was ever lost among the at times large crowd we meander through. If you ever have the chance to visit, be sure to check Bein Harim in advance. We were lucky to book last minute through Sheraton Tel-Aviv. If time permits, definitely do the most complete day tour pack. We shy away from the Dead Sea due to time constraint as well as no small bus option. The small bus group option worked perfectly for us.

A short but awesome 1 day tour experience from YOAV MALACHI.
Feb 2020
I was initially sceptical about the effectiveness os a 1 day tour to Jerusalem and Bethlehem , but YOAV MALACHI made this tour really worthy and it was a pleasure attending this tour from Bein Harim .

I would definitely recommend this tour and in fact all the tours from this travel agency.
All the guides/drivers are well informed and make the visit to any place a piece of cake in terms of logistics and really enriching in terms of information and never a single moment of the tour is wasted.

The testimony to all these above qualities was our tour guide, YOAV MALACHI.

He was knowledgable and made it be a really well-conducted tour.

Looking forward to visiting other places soon through Bein Harim/YOAV MALACHI whenever I visit Israel again.

Modern and traditional
Feb 2020
Despite the rain, the day trip to Jerusalem and Bethlehem was a memorable experience largely thanks to the enthusiasm of our guide Yoav Malachi. The tour itself covers the Church of the Nativity and the classic Christian sites in Jerusalem. What made the tour unique was Yoav's entertaining and informing guiding style and his broad knowledge on the combination of tradition and modernity in Israel. My wife and I really enjoyed our chats with him during the tour.

The logistics in both Israel and the West Bank were also very good without significant delays.

We went on a Saturday, so the Temple Mount was closed but It would be a nice-to-have if the Temple Mount could be included by extending the tour by one hour and shortening the lunch.

Thanks Piet for posting this 5-star rave review of your tour and our guide Yoav. He indeed deserves your favorable feedback for his investment in his group of travelers. Having them feel at home with him, while providing interesting commentary and managing the tour skillfully through his vast experience. He embodies a most engaging , amicable and friendly manner, always favored by those in his company. We appreciate your mention regarding the smooth logistics and operation of the tour throughout the day. Temple Mt visits are a matter we consider, and do so in another tour.It is not always possible and often under various closures. Lunch break is the standard 45-mins to an hour depending on the size of the group. Hope to see you travel with Bein Harim again sometime soon.

Simply Outstanding
Fantastic day and a great experience. Our guide, Omri was brilliant from the moment the tour began. He framed the day brilliantly and was so informative.

Martin met us at Bethlehem and his local knowledge meant we were able to see the Nativity Cave through the Catholic Church and avoid the 2 hour queue.

The day was a great balance of free time, guided discovery and guide led sessions. The little things that Omri did throughout the day made you feel valued.

The driver, Avi made sure we were close to every location and was always waiting at the pickup points so we were able to maximise the day.

The party size (18) meant that even the shop was quick and not too long. They provided you with a free tea as you browsed and weren’t pushy at all.

The food option was a buffet and basic. However it was relatively cheap so balanced out and meant we were in a great location to go to the next place.

Overall a brilliant day and when you consider how much we managed to fit in during the day it was fantastic value for money.

Yoav Malachi - enlightening and entertaining trip
5 stars for a well organised trip with many different visits to different places centered around Christianity.

We were picked up 7:15 at our hotel and returned to the same place at 18:30. We really appreciated this as we saw that other tours did not provide this service.

Yoav was the catalyst for a very enlightening and entertaining trip around the holy sites of Jerusalem and Bethlehem. He had a very large knowledge of everything he showed us, and could answer all of our questions. He also seemed to know almost all of the locals we passed by?

By the end of the day he made sure everyone got back to their hotels safely. Either by taxi to the more distant hotel or in the tourbus. He also gave recommedations for restaurants to eat at during the ride back to Tel Aviv.

The only downside of the tour was the lunch. We were kind of forced to eat at a specific place together. In our opinion this restaurant served mediocre food at expensive rates.

But Yoav’s enthusiasm made up for the bad experience at the restaurant. Which is why the rating of 5 stars remains.

Thanks, Kirstines2015, for sharing your 5-star rating for the tour with our fantastic guide Yoav. Your special mention of the pick-up/drop off procedure is much appreciated. As for the lunch - we eat at a location that caters for tourist groups. They try to offer tasty and fresh food and the service that is prompt and suits all travelers’ budgets. No Jerusalem restaurant will just take in a group of 15 or 40 travelers without prior notice. Regrettably, we cannot let travelers wander off on their own in the labyrinth of the Old City during this tour, as they are bound to get lost and cause delays, most want to eat in an organized manner. No one is forced to eat there though. Your appreciation of Yoav's professional and personal enlightening input to the day no doubt made this a memorable tour experience to cherish. Thank you very much for the recommendation of our services. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Services team
