Group tours depart from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Herzliya and Netanya. If your hotel is in one of these cities but is not on the list, please contact us by email and we will provide the nearest pick up location with directions.
Most tours are conducted in English as the main language, and in an additional language such as Spanish, French, German and Russian. You can find your desired language while registering for the tour.

Yes. The cost increases because the tour prices are based on pick-up and drop off in the same location. If there is a change in the drop off location, the tour price changes.

Good question. The benefits of private tours are a free and complete choice of the sites, hotels, duration of the trip and more. The benefits of groups tours are mainly financial - sharing with other passengers allows travel at lower prices, there are a variety of tours available daily, and you can save on transfers when moving from city to city (for example, you can start the day at check-out from the hotel in Tel Aviv and end at check-in to the hotel in Jerusalem), and most group tours guarantee departure from 2 passengers.
