We had a wonderful day touring Old and New Jerusalem! Because of the thorough itenarary, we got to explore a big chunk of the city, and to experience many different cultures and religions, all in close proximity. Whether you are religious or not, it will definetly be worth the trip. Our guide, Aaron Garcia, was very knowledgable, humorous and passionate concerning the history of Jerusalem, which also made the tour all the more interesting and rewarding. All in all, you should definetly do the tour, if you really want to get a feel of the city, and truly want to understand the complex history and importance of the place.

Avi is an excellent guide, and very knowledgeable. Having to translate two languages and maintain a large crowd can only be stressful and he did that very well.
My issue is that we felt like we were running everywhere, with no time to really stop and ask questions or take many pictures without the risk of falling behind in the group.
I also wish we had more freedom to visit shops or choose where to eat. I was not impressed with the one restaurant we were able to go to. Jerusalem is full of amazing food, we should have been given options.

Dear Edav, Thanks so much for the compliments for Avi, an experienced and highly skilled guide. It is not easy to set an optimal pace for an entire group. But we will mention him to be more aware and accommodating for photo ops etc. Regarding restaurants, it is a huge logistic issue to allow travelers to wander off alone to get their meals. It completely disrupts the schedule (as obviously more time is needed). We are trying our best to provide stops where there are clean available bathrooms as well as the ability to cater to groups. Yes, Jerusalem is a culinary high stop but this needs to be done individually and is definitely not possible when we are on a highlight tour schedule in a group. Not all travelers wish to go off alone to get their meals, feeling safer, secure (Old CIty is a labyrinth of alleyways), and connected to a group. An issue to be considered... Sincerely, Bein Harim team

Ruben is an amiable guide and passionate about his work. He is well-educated individual, carefully applying his knowledge to provide the best experience to his followers. I was very impressed with his ability to communicate in several different languages. He has mastered his trade, so that every individual that has questions, Ruben welcomes them, and easily answers them to their satisfaction. I would definitely recommend him for you upcoming travel! In addition, Ruben takes his time on tours and will provide a surprise to you as well should you have the time to ask! My review is a 10 out of 10!

I'm writing this on the way back to Tel Aviv from the Jerusalem Old and New City Tour. The level of prejudice from our tour guide was disgusting. Degrading and stereotypical comments about Palestinian's and Muslims throughout the tour, ended up with multiple arguments between the tourists and the guide, with one couple quitting the tour early because they'd had enough of his provocative and prejudice comments.

I've put that at the top so it doesn't get missed. So if you want to read about the rest of this terrible tour, see below. The tour started badly with a rude bus driver who refused to say whether I was getting on the right bus, followed by the company rep defending his attitude. We're then driven 15 minutes to swap buses to head to Tel Aviv. Throughout the journey to the viewing cafe provocative comments about Jordan were being made by the guide. This was followed by insulting all Palestinians intelligence as we headed to the old city.

He bypassed vast swathes of the city, even the parts specifically listed on the tour 'Via Dolarosa' which was almost completely ignored. Many of the tour, listened to other nearby guides or relied on Google to learn. It was also a group of 30 people, so the few times he had anything to say, it was hard to hear anyway. In addition to it being in two languages, (English and German) so everything was repeated. I think that's why it's a full day tour because everything we did could have been completed by 1pm if it wasn't for the repetition. To be picked up at 7am and in all likelihood, return 12 hours later, the tiny amount you see and learn about Jerusalem is pathetic.

You're prevented from going into any other shop besides the one with the huge mark up. Selling small souvenirs for $48 and then taking you to another tourist trap restaurant for lunch. We had the same amount of time in the souvenir shop as we did in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (25 mins)!

It was after this that the arguments start. Another comment about Muslims was made and one of the group had heard enough, she was backed up by a number of us on the tour and the guide got defense and started arguing back.

As we left Jaffa gate, he made a sarcastic comment to the lady again and the arguments started for a second time. It was at this point, one couple left the tour and demanded to get their bags from the bus. I would have joined if I wasn't heading back to Tel Aviv.

We're now heading back to Jaffa gate as the taxi that was 'organised' for some of our group didn't show up so we're stuck in rush hour traffic and therefore expecting a late return.

A completely unprofessional setup, living on name rather than quality of experience. It's unacceptable to go on a tour and have politically motivated, prejudice and stereotypical commentary throughout. You have tourists from around the world listening and learning, you should take that opportunity to spread a positive message and profess community but instead our guide chose to showcase his prejudice and rudeness.

Embarrassing!

We are most regretful that this was the nature of your experience. We have taken the matter up with the guide. He will file a report regarding what you have mentioned. Judging by this platform it certainly is not the norm for our highly experienced team of guides. You have mentioned many details about his manner. He will answer. Logistics are often the complex parameter of group tours. Traffic, however much we try to avoid is a countrywide phenomenon since Covid. Fact, not an excuse. Again we apologize that this was the nature of your experience. It certainly is not what we wish our travelers to go away with. Sincerely, Bein Harim team

We have had the best day exploring Jerusalem and getting to know this beautiful city. Transport to and from the hotel was great and we were quickly answered when we enquired about the place and time to be collected. Our guide Itay was fantastic; he combined an extensive knowledge of history with the contemporary contexts and situation in Jerusalem and he was genuine and courteous in his approach. Lunch in the panoramic restaurant was amazing. Our driver was professional and punctual, and there was such a lovely group of people from across the world. The group of 15 was the perfect size for getting from place to place. I wish we could relive the day again! Thank you for a wonderful day 😁

I took the Jerusalem Old and New 1 day tour with hotel pick up from Herzliya. I made a mistake on initial booking and selected the wrong hotel for pick up, Bein Harim corrected this for me and sent out a new confirmation straight away. On the day the pick up was on time and well organised. We boarded our bus with our tour guide Danny Binshtok. Danny was very welcoming and very knowledgeable. The tour he gave was excellent and it was easy to see how passionate he was about sharing the city with us. I’d highly recommend this tour and I know you’ll have an excellent trip if you’re lucky enough to have Danny as your guide. Thank you!

We started our tour from Tel Aviv and met the rest of the group in a coffee shop in Jerusalem, it had a great view but the coffee and the food were lacking.
The rest of the tour was pretty fast paced, we were kinda scared of stoping and losing our guide. He was clearly very knowledgeable, but we could barely stop for pictures. The restaurant for our lunch wasn’t very good also…

Dear Philipa, Thank you for this feedback. We will reiterate to guides for this allocation of time for such matters. One needs to keep an optimal pace set by the guide which suits all the travelers. There is a schedule to be covered. Nevertheless it should be user friendly! Since Covid's resumption of business, we are looking constantly for a suitable restaurant that provides clean bathrooms, as well as the ability to cater to groups. On a group tour there is no option of going off alone to eat. This is a serious likely, delay concern, especially in Jerusalem. We will convey though your opinion on this service. Sincerely, Bein Harim team

The tour was very well organized: pick up on time and clear information.
The lunch was well organized and I had the opportunity to taste Israel cuisine.
The afternoon at Yad Vashem was free so that anybody could choose his way to live such a tough andò touching experience.
Our guide Avi was GREAT 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
plenty of details - even from a historical point of view - very clearly explained in a very interesting way. He gave us time for us and personal precious suggestions. Always very attentive to everyone's need. He loves his job and you feel it deeply. Thank you for answering to All my many questions 💝 Top quality tour and guide 🔝

We had the full day tour of Jerusalem in late February and although it unfortunately rained on and off during the first half of the day (nothing we could do about that) Amir was an incredibly upbeat and positive guide. He was funny, knowledgable and endlessly passionate about Jerusalem. The tour exceeded our expectations thanks to Amir! They made sure to pick us up at a nearby hotel and drop us off at our hotel at the end of the day.

On 16.06.2022 i've booked the Old and New Jerusalem Full-Day Tour with BeinHarim Tourism Services. A big thanks to the representative Avi Tsaba, for the kindness, the wonderful tour, his humor and all the support he offered me in Yad Vashem. I was very lucky to have such a great guide with such skills. He was a caring person not just another tour guide. Feel confident about choosing Bein Harim and if you are lucky enough you'll meet Avi too.
