Pass the Garden of Gethsemane, where it’s held that Jesus prayed before his arrest. Next, visit Old Jerusalem to view the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) and Via Dolorosa, where Jesus is thought to have walked to Calvary. See some of the stations of the cross and view the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built on the believed crucifixion site. Then, pass Jerusalem’s Byzantine-era main street (cardo) before driving on to Bethlehem. Here, visit the Church of the Nativity to see where Jesus is believed to have been born, and discover the adjoining Catholic and Greek Orthodox churches and Manger Square—Bethlehem’s spiritual heart and home to the Mosque of Omar. Your tour concludes at your Jerusalem hotel.

I was in Israel for the first time on a business trip for a week with a colleague and we spontaneously decided to go on a day trip to Jerusalem and Bethlehem with Bein Harim Agency. What we didn't know was how lucky we were with our guide Ami Bar Gil. I am very grateful that he introduced us to this extraordinary place. With his positive and friendly manner and his profound knowledge, he knew how to bring history to life without becoming pathetic or one-sidedly religious. He managed to do the almost impossible and get the entire group (a whole bus full after all) through the chaos of Jerusalem's Old City without anyone getting lost. He also brought us closer to all the sights with interesting details and pictorial explanations. Afterwards we visited Bethlehem, where the group was split up and handed over to two local guides, which I consider an extremely fair gesture towards the locals. You could tell that Ami had the welfare of the local population at heart as well. We always felt safe and well looked after. I would also like to mention the bus driver, who always drove safely and calmly. This is not a matter of course, as we experienced on another trip to the Dead Sea. Thanks to Ami and the Ben Harim team for allowing us to have this experience. I would wish it on anyone seeing Jerusalem and Bethlehem for the first time and with limited time. It motivated me to come back and experience more.

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Israel, and the reason is our tour guide, Tomer Gluck.
We were looking for a tour that would allow us to visit key historical sites and have someone explain the key facts about them-Tomer surpassed our expectations way beyond!
If you are looking for a tour that is highly entertaining as well as deeply informative, this one is for you. Tomer is in a league of his own, sharing his extensive knowledge of history, architecture, the diverse culture of Israel, all in a captivating, comprehensive style with great humor and vitality. It is obvious how passionate he is and how much he loves guiding, his enthusiasm is contagious! Another huge plus, he is great in handling a large group making sure for everyone’s safety and well-being. The sights on this tour are breathtaking, truly awe inspiring and beautiful in a unique way with their compelling stories that will give you a glimpse into this country’s soul. So here, if you want to have fun, if you want your children to fall in love with history, book this tour with Tomer, and watch ancient Jerusalem come to life!

Last month I visited Israel. It was a fantastic 4-day trip full of positive emotions and amazing experiences.
I took a full day trip from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem in order to explore the country and see some of the holiest places in the world with my own eyes.
We had a very entertaining tour guide - driver who, besides knowing the history of the country and being able to answer any questions from the group, was also a real entertainer. Honestly, Yoav could take a second job as a stand up comedian. As a group, we had so much fun together!
I loved the trip. I wish the traffic wasn’t as bad and we would have more time to wonder around and explore the old Jerusalem. Definitely 5 out of 5 and hope to be back soon!

If I could say it in one word: Amazing. Ami was one of the best tour guides I had so far. He is funny and careful and as a Teacher of Archaeology, he really knows his stuff. He took us to Bethlehem and Jerusalem the old City and showed us so many details, and shared so many insight stories it was fantastic. During the tour, he not only talked he also opened space for discussions and sharing thoughts from the group so that everyone could bring something maybe meaningful or interesting. At the end of the tour, He negotiated with his boss to bring us directly to our hotel not where we started but where we stayed so that we saved around 170NIS A fantastic experience and as we will come back for sure I will make sure to book him again. Thank you so much, Ami

The day trip in Jerusalem and Bethlehem was brilliant. our tour guide Itamar Buk was great, he provided detailed knowledge and insights of all the places we visited as part of the tour. What was great was he provided a detailed introduction and explanation of the places before we arrived. I would highly recommend the tours and if you are lucky enough to get Itamar you will have a great time !

TOMER you are the BEST!
If we could put a higher score we would do it happily!!! The tour is an unforgettable experience! The history the architecture and “the spirit”of Jerusalem are quite complex and I would say that is extremely important to do your first visit with an organized tour. You get an excellent insight and really feel the true vibe of what is going on there! BUT our tour guide Tomer made the whole difference. Passionate knowledgable making it pleasant with a great sense of humour he is simply Charismatic! Ask for a tour with him!!! Regards From Greece!!!

This tour was soo good! Our tour guide, Yaov, was really nice and made the group (<15 people) feel engaged. The tour felt well prepared and we were able to go to all the key sites. We also had time to go souvenir shopping and go to a fun café for a bathroom and coffee break. This was my first time in Israel and I learnt a lot and felt safe. Overall I'm really happy I went on this tour and would recommend!

Super moving tour as a Christian. Jerusalem is a fantastic place with unbelievable vibes + the number of information depends on how much you are willing to digest for such an important place for all beliefs for centuries. Avi managed to make it fun and super insightful. I definitely recommend this tour that I took pretty much last minute. Very good value for money.

Disappointed with choice of restaurant for lunch, the place was gloomy and food looked unappetising, however the restaurant around the corner was bright with great views and excellent food. We also paid 1/4 of the price including beer. that was the in,y dissapointment as the four was great

Thanks Kerry for sharing this 5 star rave review of your tour with Zahi. He deserves your acknowledgement for the excellent and professional job he does with his travelers. Providing interesting informative commentary and with his engaging persona and passion. Lunch stop as a group is recommended however not mandatory, people who go off to eat elsewhere ,certainly can, at their own responsibility to return to the group on time etc. We eat a restaurant that can cater for groups, sometimes nearby places are full.We have a specific shedule and this location takes care of us as a group.(You can we are sure ,undesrtand this as for us as the tour operator we need the least possible complicating logisitic that can cause delay..)

I had the pleasure of being with my family on a tour by Bein Harim Tours. The driver, Mohammed, and our tour guide, Raffy, were experts in the field. Mohammed drove efficiently, while Raffy entertained us during our ride to Jerusalem. While on tour, he pointed out several spots that are historical, and helped us navigate all the historical events, through out the duration of the tour. I was so impressed the he can speak multiple languages! His English is excellent. Raffy made our tour enjoyable and educational. I have other sights that I wanted to see in this trip and will definitely use this company again.
