    We really enjoyed wandering around for 2 days. Lots of great photo opportunities. People friendly although we were warned about being harrassed to buy, we didn't find that to be the case.

    It was my second time this year. We visited Hezekiah's tunnel in January 2022 and again in December 2022. The path splits about halfway down and you can choose the dry path or go through the original water passage. Two of our group of 9 took the water pathway. The two girls loved it! Both paths are narrow but well worth all the steps down. Hard to imagine the time it took to dig the tunnel out or daily going this route to get water and then return up the narrow tunnel carrying water. . This is a must-see while in Israel!! I'm 70 and I will do this again if I'm blessed to return.

    Yesterday I participated in the Jerusalem Free Tour. The tour is perfect to get an impression of the Old City. Alex, our tour guide, was perfect. He showed us the most important sights in an entertaining way during the two hours, gave tips for further sightseeing and went into the history of the city. I can only recommend the tour and Alex.

    This was our first trip to Israel for my husband, our two adult children and myself. It was a fabulous tour from VIP pickup to VIP drop off at the airport. The itinerary was well thought out and comprehensive and everything ran like clockwork. There was a balance of historical, cultural and religious sites (both Jewish and Christian), fun activities and natural wonders such as the Dead Sea, caves and grottoes. We went on tasting tours of local markets, had lunch in a kibbutz, at great Druze and Shawarma restaurants and a fabulous fish restaurant, Uri Buri. We visited the area around Gaza Strip, the border near Lebanon and the Golan Heights and learned all about the military history and ongoing conflict which is so integral to Israel. My favorite experience was a visit to Yad Vashem. At some of the sites such as Yad Vashem, we had a private guide but our primary guide, driver and friend for 10 days was Raz. Raz was incredibly knowledgeable about everything: history, politics, theology, archaeology …. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. Our family has travelled around the world, Europe, South America, Asia and India and this tour was the best we ever had!

    America Israel Tours, this was my second time visiting Israel with this tour company. Truly a wonderful experience, would recommend to everyone. Great tour guides Barak and Jesse. Very knowledgeable and informative. Accommodations were excellent and while experience was smooth and enjoyable. I fall more and more in love with Israel each time I go, looking forward to and already planning for my third trip there.

    Our pilgrimage to Jerusalem in January 2023 was made even better because Dvir Hollander was our guide. The first day we were there, he met us at our hotel lobby, listened intently to our interests, made a plan with us, and then we were off! He is incredibly well spoken, historically knowledgeable, and extremely familiar with not only all the quarters and sites in Old Jerusalem, but also throughout Jerusalem. We appreciated how respectful he was in giving us time to reflect, not rushing us, and regularly checking to make sure we were doing okay with the day's plan and all the walking. He is so courteous to everyone he meets, and a lot of people knew him as we were walking around the different city sites. He took us to an authentic local place for a tasty lunch which we thoroughly enjoyed and only after we asked to meet a few local shop owners, he made some great suggestions, taking us to a world-famous artist's shop, a jewelry shop, an antiquities shop, and Razzouk Tattoo shop - the oldest in the world. All the shop owners were engaging, no pressure, and very engaging. We cannot provide a high enough recommendation for Dvir.

    To our new friend Dvir - thanks for making this trip so special!

    My husband and I went on the Jerusalem Old City Tour - we highly recommend the experience. Our guide, Malkon was so passionate and engaging. He was a wealth of knowledge and it was great that he was able to talk about the international law aspects of what was happening in Jerusalem (he has a degree in International Law). It was great to dive into greater detail about the various ancient quarters of Jerusalem (our favourite was the Armenian quarter). We saw things that we definitely would've missed if we were just walking around on our own.
    What I especially liked about this tour, is that it was quite personalized. The groups are small (ours only had 2 other tourists) so we had lots of opportunity to ask questions.
    I'm hoping to go back with my family later on in the trip and will be looking to do some of their full day tours.

    Aviv gave us a compressed tour in the old city of Jerusalem.
    He is has an enormous knowledge about many aspects of this wonderful city.
    It became sometimes a pubquiz and even when we knew the answer, it was just a starter for him to explain more and give more meaning and perspectives to the things we saw. We learned a lot (more) about his beautiful city.
    Fascinating to see his passion for the city as well and his trying to make the most of our limited time. We really had a fantastic experience and I really can recommend him for your tours.

    Wonderful experience. Very educational. We were there for only five days but managed to see all the most important things, as well as a few hidden gems Ami had up his sleeve.

    It was an extrenuous but self fulfilling activity. We begin the hike 4:30 am and we arrived up at dawn to see the sunrise. We hike more until we begin to rapell on the first dried waterfall. It’s summer and it’s hot but the water from the pool is nice and refreshing. Recomended to have this great experience in the desert❤️

    Gila was a fabulous tour guide of the Old City. My kids (8 and 11) were so captivated by her stories and her clear explanation of the historical timeline that they are still telling her anecdotes and eager to learn more even weeks later. We took a one-day tour of the Old City of Jerusalem but if I’d known how good it would be, I would have considered additional tours with her. Her explanations helped us to put all the rest of our travels in Jerusalem and elsewhere in Israel in context — from Masada to Mahaneh Yehudah to the City of David and even Tzfat — and my kids loved relating all of the history they learned back to her stories (as did we adults!), She tailored the tour exactly to our interests and knowledge level, as well as our energy and hunger, finding us perfect options for snacks and lunch just as we needed them, as well as bathrooms and perfect photo opportunities. She’s also very personable so we enjoyed spending a day with her and getting to know her. We will definitely recommend her to anyone (with or without kids!) interested in learning more about the Old City.

    We had a wonderful experience with the ATV and ziplining staff - all activities were so much fun! They accommodated us at an earlier time than usual and were super friendly and welcoming. My friend and I even got picked up from the bus stop and driven back out once we were finished. Would definitely recommend coming here with a large group for some incredible memories or even with a smaller group of friends. 10/10 overal experience!!
