Our experience in Jerusalem
5 / 5
Alina , 15 Dec 2015
Our first trip was to Jerusalem and The Dead Sea, it was a long day but very worth it. Jerusalem was fantastic and swimming in the Dead Sea was a once in a lifetime experience. The tour was well organised and on time. We had a few issues crossing the Egyptian-Israeli border but they were soon resolved. My only criticism is that the tour was very 'Jesus' orientated and I would have preferred a more generic historical tour of the city.
