In Israel, the cost of living is about twice what it is in the USA.
For example, a gallon of gas costs about $9. Taxes in Israel are about 50%.
Our rates are very competitive with other private tour guides. However, at the end of your tour, we know you'll agree that the experience was well worth the price!
Not included with your tour are any site entrance fees (depending on what we do on your tour), overnights, meals and tips.
Over night fees for the guide may be added (hotel, B&B) when staying outside of Jerusalem.
Tipping works differently in different countries, and we are often asked if it is customary to tip in Israel. The answer is yes.
Beyond that, we are are also asked about a fair amount to tip a guide. In general, 20% (or about $100/day) is considered a fair tip.
