A Recent Review of this tour

From our first contact with Charlie, he was very responsive and helpful. He's a very knowledgeable guide and adapted the tour to our interests. Most importantly he's a really nice guy and made the day we spent touring the Old City interesting, informative and fun. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Israel!
