    Jerusalem Dead Sea Tour from Sharm El Sheikh by Bus reviews

    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.

    This excursion is an excellent value, BUT you must manage your expectations. Sharm-Club books this excursion for a Jordanian tour company. We were warned in advance by the Sharm-Club representative that there would be delays at the border and we would feel rushed during the trip. It took 4 hours to cross into Israel and 3 hours to get back into Egypt. Because of the long delay at the border, we were rushed in Jerusalem. But, our guide Zuki, was excellent. He knew many of those in authority in the most Holy places and was able to squeeze us in with less waiting than most. He was knowledgeable and took great care of us. You really need 2 days for Jerusalem. I hope to come back again and hire Zuki as a private guide for us.
