We collect from most of the hotels in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, as well as from the major hotels in Netanya and Herzliya. Simply select your hotel from the list of hotels while registering for the desired tour and wait in the hotel lobby at the time indicated. The driver will pick you up from the hotel lobby.
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. On some of the tours with languages other than English the prices may change. In addition, for each tour you can find an organized table detailing the days the tour is operated and in which languages.

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. However, in most cases the cost will be lower than that of a taxi between cities. An excellent option for saving time on transfers.
You can take one suitcase with you on business class tours and up to 2 suitcases on economy class tours. Please coordinate the number of suitcases you intend brining with the office by using the special comments box.

The difference is in the number of participants on the tour. The business class is a minibus with maximum 19 seats and economy class is a bus with maximum 50 seats. The tour route and languages are identical for both.
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.
Till 48 hours prior to tour commencement – $20 per reservation.
