Great Day Tour Providers in Israel

My husband and I arrived Jerusalem on a Friday afternoon and started looking at the different day tours available. We called Compass and the gentleman on the phone was very polite and helpful. We booked a tour to Masada and the Dead Sea for the next day. The tour arrived right on time and the guide was very professional and knowledgeable. The day ran very smoothly and I highly recommend this tour company. Their prices are also very competitive with all other tour companies we looked at.

Buenas guías Jerusalén Belén.

Tomamos el tour a Jerusalem y Belén, Ofir, el guía de Jerusalem fue muy atento y paciente, con mucho conocimiento y hablaba muy bien inglés y español. Giorgio el guía de Belén, también muy amable y al que se me nota la pasión por el tema que expone. Todo el tour es muy completo, solo recomendaría llevar comida en la maleta porque solo se para a almorzar y da mucha hambre en los trayectos

4 Tours with Compass from Tel Aviv

I was recently in Israel and had a few days to visit the sights. I booked 4 different day tours with Compass and completely enjoyed each tour. Each day the tour picked me up at the hotel and brought me back at the end of the day. There is quite a bit of traffic in Israel so expect to have some delays.The tours are reasonably priced and offer a great variety. The tour guides were courteous and professional. I would definitely recommend this company for tours of Israel.

Excelentes guías turísticos

Tuvimos el placer de viajar a Israel el febrero unos excelentes guías turísticos nos llevaron a realizar recorridos por Jerusalem, Massada y Belén. La atención fue de primera, en un perfecto español los tres guías diferentes que nos atendieron demostraron además de buenas maneras un profundo conocimiento de las atracciones que recorrimos. Recomiendo ampliamente a esta agencia.

We went on the Christian Israel Tour. It was a fantastic experience. Our tour consisted of six people and our tour guide/driver. He was fantastic, and it was the trip of a lifetime. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this tour and go!

We joined the trip from Jerusalem and took off to Masada fortress and then to the Dead Sea. Our tour guide, Lea, is crazy and experienced guide, she explained everything we needed to know, but she also gave her personal, subjecitve touch to some historical facts. We had like 3 hours of free time at the Dead Sea, when no one is bugging you, what's also great addition to this trip.

Seriously one of the best tour guides I've ever had. He knew where the crowds would be and had us on an opposite route so that it was rarely crowded when were at a site. He was incredibly knowledgeable and we all had a brilliant time.

Increible tour altamente recomendado

Fue una experiencia increible, el guia fue atento y amigable en todo momento, a pesar de que era grupo de ingles y español no hubo ningun momento en que se perdiera alguna explicacion, los lugares que visite realmente valen la pena, habia escuchado noticias acerca de que la logistica del tour no era la adecuada, sin embargo no fue asi, visitamos los puntos turisticos con tiempo suficiente.
