I cannot stress enough how terrible this tour is. It was hot and for a bus that doesn't fill up, why are the seats so uncomfortable? The bus does a terrible job navigating the city streets. Many of the interesting things in the city aren't really viewable from places a bus like this can drive (this applies in and out... More

Unfortunaely there is only one us so if you get off you would have to wait 2 hours to get back on. It would have been better if the bus had gone all around the outside of the Old City.

We tried to take this bus twice, first lining up at the time our hotel advised us to only to discover there was no service the first time. The second time we lined up at the correct time and the driver told us the tour was finished and might resume on Sunday. "Might resume"????? Absurd. Really bad. And because it... More

This is a "cheap" and easy way to get oriented to Jerusalem, hear a bit about the city and its neighborhoods. A great first day option to get a feel of the city before any major touring.

Oh My God! Please, please don't go on this tour bus. A) it's only one bus a day so is not hop on hop off as advertised and as you would experience in other cities. B) I wanted to learn about Jerusalem and its thousands of years of history, not when the local police station was built. C) between the... More

This was a very disappointing experience in an otherwise perfect trip to Israel. The audio did not work which was the whole point of the ride. The driver tried to convince us that we just needed to use different earphones, but clearly the problem was with the narration system and many of us on the bus had the same complaint.... More

Wanting to enjoy an afternoon of sightseeing to get the lay of the land in Jerusalem, we found our way to the bus stop for the "red tour bus" and waited over an hour and it never showed. Infact, the four days we spent in and around Jerusalem we never did see it and no one could explain where it... More

I recommend everybody to take this city bus tour if they want to get a real feel of Jerusalem. It has almost 24 stops and you can get off and on but there are only 5 daily tours. Sevice is good and the price is relatively modest compared to other services in Israel. The expalantions of the hot points in... More

If you are planning to do this just do the tour without hopping on and off then try to get to the first stop of the day for the first trip of the day. The schedule later in the day was appalling - nothing like the timetable. We were early for the time on the schedule, but the bus finally... More
