Date: Feb 22/20

We were a group of 20 and booked Yousef via this website for a full day tour starting from Jerusalem covering Bethlehem, nearby areas of interest and travelling up to the Dead Sea and through the city of Jericho. From the moment we made this booking Yousef was very helpful with putting together an itinerary that worked well for us and his tour guide price was very reasonable as well. Yousef has a wealth of knowledge and advised us about each of the sites. We would highly recommend Yousef as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr.Abdul Kabbiri I was honored to meet you and meet your wonderful family . Thanks a lot for your review and for booking my service. Hope to meet you again and do much longer tours .... With you the best . Regards

Yousef is extremely knowledgable regarding the history of Jerusalem and Israel. The tour of the Old City of Jerusalem was very informative and relaxed. Best of all, Yousef is very flexible with the pace, direction, and timing of the tour. I would recommend him to anyone visiting an historic site in Israel.

Truly a one in a lifetime experience you will be forever grateful for! The world history is in front of you to see and touch! The stories of the bible are alive. Everything you read and know about Jesus is here plus so many other things you never knew. Yousef is a kind, patient and caring tour guide.

He also went out of his way (after the tour) to help us fix us broken phone we nee

Date: Nov 14/19

We were extremely grateful when Yousef happily agreed to re-arrange the itinerary of this tour completely as a result of a very late request. It is no exaggeration to say that our trip to Israel would not have been half as good had we not had the good fortune to be accompanied by this lovely man and excellent guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gavin... Thanks a lot for your review. It was my pleasure being with you and I hope we will meet again .... God bless you and happy new year for you and for all your family . Yousef

Tour: #465745, Day Tour to the Dead Sea and Massada., Jerusalem, Israel    view tour
Date: Nov 13/19

Yousef got us to Masada in time to avoid any queues and went directly to the plateau. Unhurried and informative tour of the fortifications. As things got busy we descended in the cable car without waiting. Got to the bottom and could hardly move for the crowds waiting for the car to the top. On Yousef's advice we went to a public beach on the Dead Sea. Beautifully clean, all the facilities you'd need and practically deserted. Yousef has to be one of the most skillful and savvy guides on this entire site.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gavin jones Thanks a lot for the fantastic reviews ...really I appreciate it so much. thanks so much for your warm words and for your generosity I enjoyed your company and was honored for meeting you. good bless you and hope to see you next year in Jerusalem. My best wished for the new year and merry Christmas to you and to all your family

With over 20 years experience of taking tourists around the old city it didn't take Yousef long to work out what we were most interested in seeing, when we needed a break and the types of places we wanted to eat. Along with an uncanny ability to sense the needs of his clients he also possesses an almost supernatural talent for avoiding crowds, congestion and queues. Yousef also ensured that we made the most of public transport and avoided any cultural faux pas. Superb tour and an outstanding guide.

Date: Oct 27/19

This private tour was the absolute highlight of our visit to Israel! Yousef knows all the stories from the Bible, historical events, traditions, current day living and politics, and is very easy going and sociable! He individualized the tour to our interests. It was fantastic and very comfortable! I and my teenagers learnt so much. I just regret I didn't book more tours with Yousef in Jerusalem - so worth the extra cost vs an ordinary group tour. HIGHLY recommend to learn from Yousef - we loved it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Good afternoon dear Mrs Svahn, I appreciate so much your review and your warm words . I have no words to answer your great review, and I am so happy that you come back home with great memories about my country I hope you will comeback soon with your great kids that will be for sure great sons for you . God bless you . Regards

We had a great walking tour with Yousef around the Old City. He is very knowing of all the relevant historic events, and was very well prepared. He quickly understood which kind of group we were, and what our specifics needs were. Further, he is very pleasant to be with. All in all - a perfect tour guide.

My husband, young adult son and I were so pleased with this tour! Yousef has a tremendous understanding and knowledge of the history and breadth of the challenges of this ongoing conflict. It was an incredibly eye opening experience for which we now a much better sense of both sides. Additionally, we were able to respectfully discuss the issues when we disagreed with each other's positions. I highly recommend this tour!

We did several tours during our stay in Israel, but none covered as much as we did during our amazing West Bank day with Yousef. He has significant site/historical knowledge and an intimate familiarity with the workings of the sites. He was able to get us to the front of lines and into places at just the right time before they closed for services. We highly recommend Yousef's Bethlehem, Jericho, Dead Sea tour. This tour also includes the Jordan River baptism site and Qumeran.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Wyott Russell I appreciate so much your review and my apology for the delay .. I want to thank you so much for booking my service and giving me the chance to meet you. I hope one day we meet again .....as we say here... Next year in Jerusalem :) my best wishes for the new year regards

I booked Yousef for a one-day private tour of Jerusalem. Yousef is extremely knowledgeable on the history, politics, religion and the local culture of the area. We spent the day walking through the old city and also visited the Mount of Olives. He quickly picked up on what I was most interested in and focused his tour to make it as interesting as possible. I would highly recommend Yousef.

We recently returned home from a very special vacation in Israel, Turkey, and Greece. Our experience with Tours By Local in Israel- Jerusalem was very positive. Yousef, our guide went out of his way to make our trip memorable. He was organized and informative. Our only regret is that we needed more time. I highly recommend Tours By Locals. Thanks again Yousef for a great time!!! April 24-May7, 2019

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs.Mr Adams, I am so glad to hear from you through tours by locals. Really I appreciate your review .

We enjoyed our trip with Youssef to Bethlehem and the Church of the Nativity, Shepherds' Fields and Milk Church. The Walled Off Hotel is a must-see - take tea and a walk in the museum. The separation wall itself is quite shocking. Youssef was very knowledgeable and led us skilfully through the crowds and gave us much to think about. We would ask Youssef again when we return.

We had a fantastic day with Yousef in the West Bank. He's really a wonderful guide who tailored the journey to our interests. We visited the Taybeh brewery and winery and had a delicious lunch at their hotel. Yousef also took us into an olive grove to meet the producer and workers and have tea with them. Seeing Ramallah and Bethlehem and the wall was all very interesting and eye opening. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Yousef.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Stuart .. Really I appreciate your feedback, thanks a lot. I enjoyed your company and it was my honor to tour with you some parts of the west bank area . I hope to see you again one day ....and soon . My best regards Yousef
