    Excellent experience to walk thru tunnel. We had bright headlamps which helped greatly. We took our time and had a good size group. No rush. Just enjoy the sights.

    We have hiked the path with a group of people at the age of 60th & 70th. We started at the top parking lot to the bottom parking lot. Despite rather short walk (3KM) for some of the group members it was difficult due to lot of uneven stairs. We loved the nature scenery. On the path here are several small springs surrounded with trees. Some areas are used for ancient agriculture practice by residents from the area.

    I can't recommend Jerusalem with Jeremy highly enough. This is my second tour with him. Jeremy brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding to your time in Israel. As well as passion, a sense of humour and a personal touch to things. He brought Jerusalem alive to us with stories, experiences and unique places that others wouldn't get to see. He tailors everything so well to you as an individual or a group. Whether this is your first time or fiftieth I recommend Jerusalem with Jeremy.

    Just went there with my family, kids of all ages, including a two year old. We took three ATVs as we had a few drivers. Our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed the view and learning the history of the area. We did come back quite dusty so make sure you bring as little as possible with you in the car, except for plenty of water.

    Yoaf was very knowledgeable and personable. Would hire him again for any tour I took again to Israel. His character is shown in his professional way that he conducts tour.

    Aviv’s tour through Jerusalem felt more like learning and talking with a good friend. I found the small details he highlighted to be amazing. I would do the tour all over again.

    Yuval was a great guide for our day trip to Jerusalem. He is kind, fun and really knows his way around the old city. We appreciated his ability to describe the nuances of the city. Obviously Jerusalem has struggled during the pandemic and unfortunately some of the hidden gem spots did not survive -- but Yuval did everything he could to take us around. He also knew the "less touristy" spots for food which was awesome.

    My only regret was that I wish we could have spent more time in the Jewish quarter as I feel may have over indexed on the other sites ... but its tough as there are only so many hours in a day. My suggestion would be to book more time with Yuval. Perhaps a few days to really unpack the history of all of Jerusalem. That said it was a great tour and we enjoyed it.

    This was my 11th trip to Israel and we have always hired a guide. Although they were all good,Moti Barness brought it to an excellent level. His combination of knowledge and service is just impeccable. I look forward to my next family trip to Israel and rebooking Moti Barness. I would urge anyone who is coming to see Israel
    to hire Moti who will bring your trip to a great level tou will never forget

    Took a three hour tasting tour…..our guide was Daniella and she was great. She set the vibe with a welcome drink Arak and we just flowed from there…The places we visited and the history lesson were like being in heaven. Our next trip we need to do something more adventurous like a cooking day in the market…..Can’t wait….

    We did a private tour in Jerusalem (old town) with Ariel. We were 6 people (including 2 kids) and we did the tour in Portuguese. Ariel was super knowledgeable, nice and keen to answer all our questions about Israel, religions , the people , etc. It was an extremely interesting day and Ariel made it very pleasant for adults and kids there were curious and engaged. We traveled from far away and having Ariel as a guide made all the difference to understand better this magic place - We absolute recommend it!

    Truly excellent experience. Gil planned a trip of a lifetime perfect for our group. Absolute magic!! He was great at managing our needs and keeping things relevant to our interests. He created amazing daily itineraries for us, but was also willing to pivot when necessary. We also had great food, great accommodations, and a spacious van with AC.

    Gil is incredibly knowledgeable. He brought our Christian interests to life with Jewish historical perspectives, and helped us see the world through new eyes. Felt like no question was off limits or too complicated. His biblical understanding was astounding, and we particularly loved the direct Hebrew translations that he used to help clarify confusion. Definite five stars.
