    The tour was very informative, and the tour guide very helpful. It was memorable experience. I would highly recommend this tour, for religious or non-religious people alike.

    Our guide Eli was very knowledgeable. We covered a lot of ground - Mount of Olives: Dominos Flevit, Chapel of the Ascension, Church of All Nations, Gethsemane, then we walked all the way to the Via Dolorosa and covered many of the stations, we walked through the four quarters, lunch at a restaurant in the Christian quarter with a great view of the Al Aqsa mosque, and ended at the Upper Room where the Last Supper took place. As another reviewer pointed out, the Holy Sepulcher was not part of the tour. We had already seen it as part of another tour Jerusalem Old and New and also had the opportunity to spend some time in the Old City without the crowds so we took this tour on our last day to make sure we did not miss anything and sure enough we were able to see some sites we had previously missed. At the end of the tour we skipped over from the Upper Room to the Abbey of the Dormition next door which is very beautiful and moving. I would have wanted to see the Church of St. Peter Gallicantu where Peter denied Christ. We also did not see the pools of Bethesda and Siloam. Also you do not get to see the Lithostratos in the Ecce Homo convent where Jesus was tormented by the Roman soldiers. So take this tour to see important bullet points but do your homework and give yourself extra time to explore on your own, otherwise you will miss some of the most important Christian sites.

    It was an amazing experience with a personable and knowledgeable guide. His depth of knowledge, and the teaching materials he brought along enriched the experience. I enjoyed the time for prayer and moments of reflection. I did and still do feel that day!

    This tour was average. While u got to see the places outside the city on the Mt of Olives(which were good), once you entered the OlD City, how do you not include in this tour the most important location the Church of the Holy Sepchulre where Jesus was crucified and buried. Guide had no explanation.
