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.
