Our guide, Avi was kind and fun. He took the time to answer all our questions and gave an interesting insight into the life in Old-Jerusalem. He gave us recommendations for our further stay in Israel and we left Jerusalem with the feeling of having gained a good overall knowledge of its history.

I was so positively impressed by the tour with Avi. He explained us thoroughly all the important locations of the city, answered all of our questions (a lot!) and gave us insights from his personal experience. I definitely recommend this tour.
