What people are saying about Old City, Jerusalem

This experience was something out of the ordinary. Our first guide Amir was absolutely fantastic. He told us not only about Jerusalem and Bethlehem, but also about Israel where we got to learn a lot. When we come to Bethlehem there will be a new guide who comes and has a different approach. Unfortunately, he had not eaten all day and it was noticeable when he got into a dispute with one of the participants. Very unprofessional unfortunately. The exclusive 3 course dinner was the biggest disappointment. We come to a restaurant that is perfectly located in Bethlehem and very close to the large church where the midnight mass was. It was like coming to school again where we had to go with the tray and pick up food that was really nothing further at all but rather bad. The experience overall is very positive and this is largely due to the guide Amir who is by far the best guide I have ever met and I have met many. If you have the chance, you should definitely go on this trip.
