    Enjoyable and informative tour of Masada with an IDF veteran (AMI) who was both knowledgeable and entertaining. He's from this area and has deep knowledge of the distant and recent history. He presents a unique take on the source of Herod's riches which also made the experience more memorable and thought-provoking. It was also nice to have a relaxing end-of-day experience on the shores of the Dead Sea.

    After a group of 8 persons initially boarded the wrong bus (a mix up with a different tour company) Bein Harim went out of their way to help us. They arranged for our group to be picked up and got us onto the correct bus. We had tour guide Dan who was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour itself is great, the Sea of Galilee, Nazareth and Capernaum are both interesting and beautiful. Definitely worth your money.

    I really enjoyed the visit to some of the holy places in the Palestinian territories. It was a rich and inspiring experience for me, even being an old pagan.

    Whilst in Tel Aviv with a large group of friends, we went on a tour to Jerusalem and The Dead Sea with Bein Harim. Our tour guide, Avishay, gave a succinct history of Israel, demonstrated a great deal of experience, knowledge and leadership skills. His warm personality, sense of humour and passion for his craft made the entire experience memorable. Great tour with absolute value for me, would definitely recommend.

    Most of the itineraries were ok except the guide did not run a head count which is crucial in any excursions. We don’t want to see tourists leaving behind in a foreign country. It is most difficult to imagine. The volume of PA in the bus was too low that we couldn’t hear most of the time.

    I’m giving a 5 in comparison of another tour we took after. The main reason are for the sites - I don’t have any god or religion yet it was very interesting to discover such places. The guide was very nice, not pushy, with a great sense of humor. The Dead Sea was also something to experience. Despite the bad weather we managed to enjoy it for a bit.

    This was a great way to see Petra with a limited amount of time, but I went into it without a lot of info and thought some details about my experience would be helpful. There is one bus taking people from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem who have booked 1, 2 and 3 day trips, so the bus fills up more than you would expect. They also get people in Eilat which is why the border crossing they use is the one that's furthest away (Yitzhak Rabin/Wadi Araba). This makes the drive very long. We were picked up in Jerusalem at 3am, had two 30 minute rest stops, and arrived at the border crossing at 8am. There were people there to help us through the entire border crossing process, which took about 90 minutes. The good thing about this crossing is that it was completely deserted, only our group was there, and it's open late even on Friday night, which is when we went. They accepted credit card payment for the $65 exit tax on the bus, but cash (USD or NIS) was needed for the $60 visa fee. No one asked for the Visit Jordan QR code.

    Once through the border, we divided up based on the length of our trip and met our bus and Jordanian tour guide. Our guide was great and gave us lots of interesting information on the ride. We had another 30 minute rest stop on the way to Petra and were at the entrance at 2pm (lost an hour due to the time zone change).

    We had to be back at the meeting place at 4:30pm, so we decided to leave the group to see as much as possible. The guide took everyone as far as the Treasury. I'm not sure how much free time they had after that. We made it as far as the Great Temple before we had to turn around to make it back in time. There are golf carts that will take you through the Siq for $27; maybe it would've been worth it to save the walk time. There are horses included in the price of the ticket, but they only take you from the entrance to the beginning of the Siq and the way the guys treat them is questionable.

    At 4:30 we met at a restaurant near the entrance called Sandstone and a buffet lunch was included that was actually really good. Around 5pm we started the trip back. We stopped to pick up people who were ending multi-day trips and had another 30 minute rest stop on the way back to the border. Returning to Israel was considerably faster than arriving in Jordan. There is no exit tax if you're in Jordan for less than 24 hours.

    We had one 30 minute rest stop on the way back to Jerusalem and arrived at about midnight. All the rest stops were clean with nice bathrooms and lots of snacks, so you can either bring snacks or buy them at the stops.

    All in all a very long and tiring day with only 2 1/2 hours in Petra, but it was very well organized and we had no problems. There are faster ways to get to Petra that might be worth looking into to maximize your time there, but if you don't want to worry about figuring it out yourself, I recommend this tour.

    This trip was a good experience for us. Our guide, Dia, did a wonderful job of maneuvering us through a very crowded site. He also explained the Bethlehem story to us in ways we had not heard of before.

    Israel Guided Tours was amazing! From the beginning communication to the tour days, we felt looked after and cared for. The tour guide was so well versed in knowledge and information to share with us about each of the stops along the way. Thank you to Leo, who set it all up for us and Nicola our tour guide. An amazing experience a a highly recommend this company for your Israel Tours!

    Great guides. Short time on important places, and no time to stand in lines to access some of the places.

    From the Israel side I would rate this 2 stars. From the Jordanian side I’d rate this 5 stars. Luckily we’re in Jordan most of the time! In Israel we were left at the border with minimal instruction and we had to figure it out on our own. Here are instructions for future travelers with this tour group!

    Once you arrive at the border to go from Israel to Jordan, you will enter the offices they instruct you to go into. From there there are two lines: the one to the right is for Israeli citizens only, and the one to the left is where you go to pay your Israeli exit fee and also exchange currency to Jordanian Dinar (I suggest NOT to exchange here since there will be another opportunity to exchange from the Jordan side; for example the exchange rate here would get you 88% whereas the exchange rate on the Jordan side will give you 96% so it’s your call; the tour guide pays the fees first to the Jordanian government and then he collects the fees on the bus from the travelers after you guys have started the tour). After you pay your fee with credit card or cash, make a 180 and you will see two machines just like the ones you saw arriving at the Tel Aviv airport. Scan your passport face down and you will receive a border ticket. With the receipt from the border exit fee, border ticket from the passport machine and your actual passport you can proceed to the guy at the kiosk that verifies your documents. From there you are done!

    Now comes the actual tour part. Absolutely no complaints. The tour guide was amazing, food was all buffet style and also amazing, Petra was amazing, and the two extra stops were amazing too. The Bedouin style hotel was incredible and a unique experience. You get more buffet dinner and breakfast and then lounge in a big hall where they play live music and serve hot (very) sweet tea. Return to the Jordanian border was seamless.

    The return back to the Israeli side was actually surprisingly quick. All of our tour group made it back across quickly without any hitches. We arrive to find no bus waiting for us. We called and they said the bus was already there. Then we searched all across the compound and the bus was not there. We would call again and no answer. The bus arrived maybe 30-45 minutes later. Some proper communication on the Israeli side would’ve been nice!

    A bit of a late start, but once we got going, the going was good. Stopped for a short bathroom/coffee break, then headed to Ein Gedi. Guide was specific and gave us time to do things on our own or join him. Loved the hike to David Falls….and would love to just go and hike this area on own! Guide answered all our questions re the area and its history.on to Masada, the 2d movie and cable ride up where he gave us a rather brief but good tour. On to the Dead Sea private beach…quite the set up. I had already been to the Dead Sea on Jordan side, but the stop was nice…tho rather commercial but good facilities (as they should be for the price). All in all a brief but good tour. Only complaint is that for the price, at least one of the admissions should have been included!
