    My tour guide was very acknowledge but she shouldn't go with the time because she rushed us badly. I think Viator should extend the time for this tour, they time they give is not enough for pics. Beside that the tour was average good. Food was good as well, they picked a good restaurant.

    This tour totally missed the mark. It started with a late hotel pickup and an extremely slow time at the transfer point. We finally got started at the Yad Vashem memorial when our “guide” spent 5 minutes talking about 1 of the memorials and then pointing to the museum telling us to meet him in 1 1/2 hours at the exit. He then took us to the old city, circling the city twice looking for twice. We went to a late lunch and finally got to see the old city at 3PM. We spent no more than 10 minutes at any of the important sites. It was running so late they extended it to six, but by that time half left the tour. Terrible guide! I have booked many tours through and this one really missed the mark. Going back again tomorrow to do it on my own.

    We had a lovely guide who tried to keep us all together. The sights were great, but there were too many people to really be able to take it all in and enjoy everything.

    The tour program is great. Tour guide was very knowledgeable as well. The reason for 2 stars is because I've booked the tour in English but it was bilingual, English and French. There were 12 English speaking tourists and one French speaking. The tour guide had to explain everything twice, once in English and once in French and that's sort of ruining the whole dynamics of the tour. Imagine 50 of the tour is spent on something that you didn't agree/pay for. Some parts of tour felt rushed as the tour guide had to squeeze review of the placed on both languages.

    Tour was average. Thought we were going to Mount of Olives but went to Mount Scopus instead. Didn't feel tour was worth price.

    The tour was ok, but I think we spent more time on the Christian sights than I would have liked. The tour guide also made jokes about Jews, which as a Jew, I didn't appreciate. I also didn't appreciate being taken to a restaurant and given a dirty look when I said I had brought my own lunch. Finally, we spent more time at lunch than at Yad Vashem which is terrible! The tour was too rushed and not well planned.

    Overall great tour of Jerusalem. We were picked up on time and returned to our hotel at the end of the tour. Comfortable bus with a/c. Friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. Lunch in the old city was a bit over priced. Only 2 complaints - There were many sites to see and I wish there was more time to see them as we felt a little rushed. 2nd, this was supposed to be an English only tour and somehow it turned into both English and Spanish. We felt the guide tended to cater more to the Spanish speaking tourists as she too was of Hispanic decent. Other than that it was a good tour.
