This was a great overview of 4 important sites. Gaya, our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. The description says meals are not included however, they have a planned meal that you pay for - they should include this in the description to make sure you have enough cash. The only hiccup was at drop off when Other travelers had to catch a cab and left everyone else stuck on the bus - good that they helped those people but should have someone else wait instead of holding up everyone else.

Aviva was spectacular. She was like a walking encyclopedia for History and spoke 6 languages. She makes this tour great. The sites were beautiful. All around excellent day.

Our guide Ben was just great. We would have liked to have seen the harbor in Akko, but we still recommend the tour 100%. Rosh Hanikra is definitely a new highlight.

We were treated to a very eclectic small group of different nationalities and a very cultured guide again, well done Samuel

Very experienced, patient guide who gave us an unforgettable experience in the Galilee region, I highly recommend it!
