It was an amazing experience! The trip it's worth every penny. Everything was well organised, they were at the pickup spot in time, and we left Tel Aviv at the scheduled time. We had 3 guides all through the day! First one from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, second one (Allan) in Jerusalem and one lady in Bethlehem! The first 2 were outstanding, especially Allan! He is very knowledgeable, funny and smart! He took us into a story of Jerusalem 500 - 2000 years ago! The places we saw are also very interesting and full of history and spirituality! If I would have to point minuses of the trip, those would be the fact that the time in Bethleem was very short, the guide (lady) even though she was nice and full of good intentions, didn't speak a good English and seemed in a hectic rush. Also, another minus is the fact that being a lot to see for one day, it gives you the feeling that you are always running between objectives.

Jerusalem and the Dead Sea were brilliant. Bethlehem wasn't so good. Didn't get to see anything there. We should of spent more time in Jerusalem visiting the markets etc. Also there was no toilet on the bus. You're not on there for hours, but you never know! It's an early start, and you didn't stop for lunch until 1 pm so we took sandwiches and ate on the bus.
