We literally just climbed off the bus after a day spent exploring Nazareth and places around the Sea of Galilee, including Capernaum. Tiberius, and the purported baptism site of Jesus at the Jordan River. We were thoroughly entertained and educated by our fantastic guide, Dorit, and the skill of our driver Mohammed was simply amazing. Dorit was a bottomless font of knowledge and managed to wrangle our crowd of 32 tourists in a most professional and even joyful manner. Bravo to the team of Dorit and Mohammed!

The stops at the Church of Mary and the Church of St. Paul were great and our guide, Yosef, did a great job of highlighting the significance of the events. After the churches it was time for the 30+ min obligatory stop at the kitschy gift shop before heading to the Sea of Galilee. The village on the shores of Galilee was surprisingly serene and beautiful and it was easy to transport yourself to biblical times. During your $20-$25 banquet room style lunch stop (not including drinks) just know that the tilapia from Galilee is served as a whole fish, not a filet, so if this bothers you go for the red snapper which is a traditional breaded and fried fish filet. We also stopped at the Jordan River baptism site which, was beautiful and sentence and also custom built for individual and group baptisms with ramps, etc. to access the water easily. Our guide did depart the tour early because his home was on the north side of Tel Aviv which created some confusion on the tour drop off stops. Tip would have been double had he not chosen to exit early.

Thanks, Don for all the reviews on the numerous tours you took with us. We are glad you were satisfied with the guide Yosef and that you thoroughly enjoyed the spectacular locations visited. Glad you were happy with the baptism location on Yardenit. Again regarding the restaurant stop, You saw for yourself over a few days, this is the general price for lunch. we have to stop at places that cater to groups and provide bathroom facilities.

This is a very well organised and interesting tour. Our guide was Haya who knew so much and was very interesting. We went to Nazareth and got to see the churches and the holy sites. We spent a while in a tourist shop here, but didn't have the opportunity to visit any other shops at the other locations apart from Yardenit. This would have been nice, but didn't impact the enjoyment of the trip.

Capernaum was great and had lots of opportunity for photos. I, personally, wouldn't bother with going to Tabgha again. We didn't have much time there and there wasn't really anything to see there really anyway. The rest of the tour was great though and Yardenit baptism site was nice - even though I didn't personally get baptised here.

The trip cost quite a bit, but due to the difficult locations of these places, I think it is definitely worth it. I probably wouldn't do it for more accessible locations (like Jerusalem or Haifa) though as there is quite a bit of waiting around (especially in the morning) and you can get the bus or train there easily.

The tour was well organised and the guide Dan was very good. However for a 12 hour trip - at least half of which was spent in the bus - it was a bit disappointing. The river Jordan was a nice spot if a bit touristy, Capernaum was good, Nazareth consists of visiting two modern churches with crypts that may or may not be the sites of Mary & Joseph's homes, followed by an obligatory visit to a very expensive souvenir shop. The best part was Dan's commentary on everything to do with Israel.

If all you need is a ride, this will technically work. The actual “tour” consisted largely of a man citing a few Bible passages at each location. The guide seemed unaware that patrons might be familiar with recent Middle East history and/or the Gospels. He frequently misrepresented regional history. The biblical history is more accurately and discursively represented on the signs on site. Maybe there is someone on a Nazareth tour who hasn’t read the Bible, but it seems unlikely. Furthermore, the passages were also on signs. Reading selectively from New Testament is this not useful. The egregious misrepresentation of the history of Israel grew distracting, tiresome, and a disservice to those familiar with what happened.

The original tour we signed up for included a stop at Tiberius. We were changed to this tour, which did not stop at the Roman site. Be advised that though Tiberius is in the name, you will not get to see it. You do drive near it.

Dear 91apples, We are regretful that you felt that the guide's commentary was misrepresenting. Knowing your guide and his knoweldge and professionalism we are sure he made every effort to provide accurate commentary to the best of his knowledge and ability. Correcting you, regarding Tiberius, there is no time for the stop there, we only drive through Tiberius. Best, Bein Harim team

I’ve been to this tour on thursday, jan 2nd 2020, with my girlfriend. It was a stressful day and I have been insulted by the tour company employees.

The weather that day was terrible, it rained all day long, and that was not the tour guide’s fault. But that’s the least of the problems that day.

The tour guide (Saar) was BY FAR the worst tour guide we had in Israel (out of a total of 7 tours). He didn’t give much explanations about the trip, about the locations we visited, he basically just walked the group to each site and said what was it and couple of facts that were written right in front of us. His english skills were very limited and everyone at the group struggled to understand him…. He was very poor at organizing and controlling the tour group, several times he’s lost group members and we took long time under rain waiting for the group to reunite. It was very frustrating to spend the whole day with him and we didn’t even had the choice to leave the tour… it was a pain to endure all day long with this appalling tour guide!

By the end of the day, if the bad experiences haven’t been enough so far, then it happened the coronation of this disgusting tour: the bus driver “forgot” to drop us off at our hotel and when we were about 2 km away, I looked into Google Maps and questioned the guide Saar, who asked the bus driver to come back… This bus driver stopped the bus, refused to come back or at least leave us closer to the hotel, and yelled at us to step down the bus right away. I refused to it, complained with Saar….he told me, very undisturbed, that he could not force the bus driver to come back so we should just leave and walk back. I understand a little hebrew, and the driver was cursing us in hebrew while he was telling Saar he WAS NOT coming back to drop us off and “fu** these tourists, they will walk back”.

This was our last tour in Israel, it left a terrible memory and I everyone that considers using this company - Bein Harim - services must know they have this low level of people working in their staff, and any tour might turn out to be a nightmare day like this.

There are other tour companies we used in Israel and their services were MUCH better, not to mention we didn’t have any complains at all.

Dear Marcel, We are most regretful that this was the nature of your tour experience with Bein Harim. As you can see it is most certainly not our reputation at all, nor for our highly recommended tour guides and our tour management. Saar may be young but he is not an inexperienced tour guide (officially licensed to guide in English and proficient, therefore). He also has a most pleasant manner and excellent tour management skills. However, may we say that this particular day, and your trip to the North, was indeed a harsh day operationally, by all standards. We have no reason to hide behind any excuses, fact, heavy rainfall compounds moving around in a group. People have different paces, under such conditions for sure. It was a day of the harshest rainfall in the North of Israel in about 50 years over 110mm of rain (yearly average). It meant having to be super organized, this may have posed problems for him, and probably any tour guide. Saar has reported with much regret and apology that this was the nature of your experience of him. He certainly had no reason not to cooperate with you, and thus threaten his own position and make him liable for such a severe complaint. We are much more disturbed what you describe as the behavior of the bus driver and your hotel drop off proximity (we subcontract when there are large volumes of travelers). Your report has been passed onto the bus company for investigation and we will certainly not use this driver based on what you describe. We strive to provide the best possible service even when conditions hamper doing so. We will continue to follow this severe complaint on your private mail platform. Kindly accept our sincere apologies for having come away with such an experience. May we add that this is not at all reflective of our overall tourism services of the highest standard that we strive to operate daily and of the 94% satisfied travelers who report so on this platform. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Services team

This was our second trip with Itamar Buk. He is very knowledgeable and makes the trips enjoyable. He is very personable, friendly and helpful. We had a medical emergency at the end of our trip and Itamar handled it calmly and professionally. I will highly recommend Bein Harim trips to everyone I know that plans to visit Israel. The trips are worth every penny and you will be extremely satisfied with the knowledge gained from Itamar Buk.

Well if you want to be "locked in" in different places, restaurants or tourist shops, for which there is probably a commission scheme instead of spending enough time to see the important landmarks, book it
Otherwise take the bus and stay as long as you wish. HAYA the tour guide needs to give time to see around and get the facts straight about Christianity.

We are most regretful that this was the impression you came away with on a tour with Haya. We will certainly get here to be accountable for what you mention regarding her lack of accuracy in her commentary. She is a highly experienced tour guide. Not all group tours are suited to all travelers, we do not operate where travelers wander off independently on any of our tours. From rich experience, they get lost which cause delays and tour schedule disruption etc Getting up to the Sea of Galilee region is not very easy for most travelers, so what you offer as an alternative is not rather doable. Your insinuation is most inaccurate and harmful regarding shops and restaurants.

Tour itinerary, logistics, organization, timings, provided information, tour guide – every little detail is very well taken care.

I would like to say huge THANKS to the guide Rafi for being so lively! I’ve always had problems with the history, and Israel is known with its rich and quite complex past, so I felt really overwhelmed preparing for the trip…

But Rafi made it so easy to understand, managed to keep my full attention, to include all colors of my imagination. Apart from all Rafi’s professionalism and deep knowledge, he is incredibly charming person, who is guaranteed loved by every tourist.

History of the country is still huge topic to discover. But now I have a very good base in this knowledge, which was created by the wonderful tour guide and the great tour operator.

Thanks a million to the entire team!

We were looking for a way to see Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee on a day trip from Tel-Aviv, so this tour sounded perfect. It did not disappoint! We went on 13 Jan 2020. Danny was a wonderful guide, keeping us informed and entertained throughout a 12 hour day. Pickup near our hotel was easy and on time, and the entire day was well-organized and upbeat. We saw everything on the itinerary, as well as a stop at the Jordanian border for some quick photos. There was time for some shopping in Nazareth, where we picked up a bottle of local wine. Lunch was at St. Peter's Restaurant (on the shore of the Sea of Galilee), where there were four fish, chicken, or kebab options, plus a non-meat falafel meal. The small bus we took seated around 25, and all seats were full except for one. There was space for luggage underneath the bus, and small overhead compartments above the seats. Everyone on our tour was great, and it was a very enjoyable day. Thanks Danny, and Bein Harim Tours!

He sure is worthy of your complimentary feedback for his efforts, professionalism and tour management skills. We are so pleased to read you have come away with a varied and enriching tour experience to cherish. The details mentioned are very useful to others on this platform, descriptive and highly accurate. Especially your mention of the lunch served at the spectacular location on the shores of the Sea of Galilee,for which other travelers often have little praise!! (level of expectation and in a rural area that can cater for groups) It is much appreciated.Hope to see you travel with us again sometime.
