Tour guides in Israel

Traveling on brief 4 day trip to Israel. Staying in Jerusalem at the Norte Dame of Jerusalem/in Old City.

We are looking to hire a guide to show us around the Old City and nearby sights; plus a guide to take us to Masada/Dead Sea and also to Galilea.

Does anyone have recommended guides or other advice?

It sounds like you are trying to do too much. It's 2 to 4 hours to drive from Jerusalem to the Galilee, depending on what you want to see, more if you hit traffic. That makes for a really long day trip.

How much time do you actually have? Are you staying 3 nights? What time do you get to Jerualem on day 1 and what time do you leave on day 4? That's only 2 full days, barely enough to see the Old City and visit some of its sights and spend a day at the Dead Sea.

There are several excellent guides recommended on the Israel Forum on
