This tour was by minibus rather than coach. The driver was also the guide. The pick-ups took longer than we would have liked, but once we arrived, we had the benefit of small group flexibility. The guide was knowledgable and informative, his English was excellent. Overall, a really great introduction to Jerusalem.

Good trip with a great guide

Great and interesting tour with an experienced guide. Took us to Mount of Olives, Room of Last Supper, King David tomb, Chuch of Annunciation, Kotel, Church of Sepulcher and Yad Vashem Museum. Our guide -Yehuda - told all the history, he answered all questions. All that in a day! I can recommend this tour for religious ppl.

Bad organization

After I was not picked up at the hotel, I called the rent a guide office. I was told that I was not at the pick-up point on time, that other customers were picked up. It was only when the hotel reception said no (the day before there was the same incident) that I was taken to the waiting group by taxi. The group consisted of approx. 25 participants - anything but a small group! The tour was very messy. A daily schedule (breaks, times of respective stays) was not communicated. We were literally smuggled through and there was no time anywhere. Three group members were lost on the way. Nevertheless: overall an experience and a trip. The Yad Vashem + Children's Memorial were very impressive! The guide was nice and easy to understand.
