Super knowledgeable, responsive, and helpful

By: Glitterati

Very knowledgable, extremely responsive when we had minor emergencies, lovely to work with. They checked in on us several times during our trip to make sure that everything was running smoothly, and to see if there was anything else we might need. They were very helpful when we had a medical issue and needed to make itinerary changes on the fly. They helped make fantastic arrangements for us, and it was the best trip we've ever taken. We recommend them very highly.

Kenes Tours was absolutely amazing!! Our guide Zak Savin was incredible. His knowledge and ability to help us connect to every location we visited was simply amazing. Nathan worked with Linda Scroggins and was able to plan an absolutely life changing trip that we will certainly never forget. Can’t say enough good things about my experience with Kenes Tours!!

Great tour

Kenes Tours Israel provided a wonderful tour guide, Ami, and an incredible itinerary for our Jerusalem tour. We were able to tour Gesemanie, the sermon on the mount, Golgotha, and the Holy Sepulcher. The tour guides car had a refrigerator in it, and it was well stocked. The entire experience was top notch. I highly recommend Kenes Tours Israel.

David was fantastic! Gave us a good background on political scene without expressing his personal views. An extra educational experience!

David was an extraordinary guide. He was well versed in both the history and the cultural aspects of Israel. He recommendations on what to ware and to keep well hydrated were also important. I would certainly recommend David to any future person seeking to experience Israel.

I hit submit too quickly regarding Margaret. She was great on the actual trip. Always had a smile, energetic, friendly, all good traits. Always positive. I can’t really respond to kenes tours but if tour guide, David, is a reflection of the firm then they’re great.

Jordan Petra Wadi Rum, Amman 2019

By: V

Reviewed on: 04 Feb 2019

We had the WORST tour guide named Malek I have ever had. He didn’t speak at all on long bus trips when he could have told us about Jordan’s rich history. He was 45 minutes late taking us into Petra with no explanation and apology. He smoked next to us when we were walking. He was more a facilitator than a guide. The bus driver was friendlier than Malek was. So so disappointing. I had been to Jordan before, and learned so much about this wonderful country. Sites were amazing in Jordan.

Jerusalem/Bethlehem/Caesarea/Dead Sea Tour

Our contact was Aliza and our amazing guide was Moshe. Everything went according to the written itinerary and more.! We were educated by the most knowledgeable and passionate Israeli guide! We learned more than we thought possible and enjoyed very vigorous walking tours through the streets of old and new Jerusalem and our pace and need for stops was always a priority for Moshe. He was able to accommodate our small group of 4 and provide a awesome experience! I would highly recommend Aliza and especially Moshe for any tour when visiting Israel.
