Yael gave a really fascinating and insightful tour of Tiberias taking me round all of the places of interest throughout Tiberias' long history. She is clearly very passionate and knowledgeable about Tiberias and took great pleasure in showing me round. We ended up in a lovely local juice shop owned by a very freindly couple for a refreshing pomegranate juice and she showed me to a delicious falafel place for lunch and pointed me in the right direction for my onward travels. 5* tour!
