Highly Recommend
diana_t, Apr 2024
Due to the war, the tour was a tour to Bethlehem only. It was nice having a private tour like to the places listed. The Church of the Nativity, the milk grotto, and etc was such a spiritual and amazing experience that I do not think anyone will ever have. I had the place to myself. It was so beautiful. Thank you to Elias for everything. He was so funny, a comedian, informative, chill, and awesome guide. Helped me a lot on this trip. Thank you. I can only imagine what it would have been like if I was able to go to the other two locations. Highly recommend this tour!!

Guider was providing vivid guidance which coming out of his life, not just memorized from books. Definitely, now I know a company recommendable who are planning trip to israel.
Excellent guide Elias
Hernando_R, Sep 2023
The tour guide Elias was excellent, we really like him. The tour to Bethlehem was very nice and informative but the second part to Jericho did not enjoy it much.
Very significant Bethlehem, Jericho and Jordan River Tour.
Valerie_L, Sep 2023
Bethlehem due to the significance of this town in my religion. The guide, Elias was super knowledgeable, I highly recommend him! He has great humour as well. Photos included are of the Judean Desert after descending from Jerusalem, Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, The Milk Grotto, Sheperd's Cave and our guide. Jericho, though the oldest city in the world, is like an unexplored hidden gem, we observed beautiful archeological findings. Photos of Elisha's Spring Fountain, Hisham's Palace with all the mosiacs. Visiting the baptismal site at Qasr al Yahud was extremely special for me.
Very nice experience
Enoch_G, Sep 2023
The tour guides were factastic, both in the morning and afternoon. They made it fun but also had a lot of really good information to share. They also new how to keep the group organized and stay on schedule so that we weren't waiting around too long for the next activity. Highly recommend the tour.
Beautiful!!!
Vincenzo_N, Sep 2023
beautiful tour, the places visited together with a very professional guide, helped to fully experience every corner of the holy land
Great way to see Bethlehem and Jericho
Alan_K, Sep 2023
Our guide was great for the Bethlehem portion. The Jericho portion was good but if I had to decide between the two, the Bethelhem portion was best. Would highly recommend this tour if you want to see both sites. We felt very safe the entire time.
Intensive but worth it
Tom_M, Sep 2023
This is a real tour de force of Christian religious and other historic sites in the West Bank, including Bethlehem, the Judean desert, the River Jordan, and several sites around Jericho. It’s a long trip - I left my hotel in Tel Aviv at 05:45 to reach the pickup point on time and got back at 21:00 - which was much longer than I expected. However, if you’re up for an intensive day in a fascinating region - then this is the trip for you. Bethlehem tour guide Elias was a particular star.
Amazing

Best Tour Guide Ever!
Rex_B, Jun 2023
Everything about this tour was excellent and memorable. The tour guide Elias gave us very good information in a clear and entertaining way for each place we visited. He was very nice and conscientious of the needs for his group, especially for those who had a hard time walking. He provided extra transport for those who can't walk for long distances when going uphill like in the church of nativity area which we haven't experienced from any other tour guide.
Fantastic Tour
Lucy_M, Jun 2023
This excursion was a great crescendo to my Israel trip. It was very inclusive of many sites I wanted to see. The guides were very knowledgeable and personable.
One in a lifetime experience.
Claire_A, Jun 2023
All places in Jerusalem that i went to are memorable to me. It's the place where our Lord Jesus Christ was born, baptized, and died. It's an incredible and soul warming ecperience.
Fantastic! The guides...

Fantastic! The guides were brilliant and the experience is a memory we can never forget - fully recommended
Inatentive, rushed and un-informative
Matthew_H, Jun 2023
The entire first half of c the tour was rushed to a degree that made it completely unenjoyable. The morning guide seemed in a hurry to get it over with, was far more focused on making sure everyone kept up with him than allowing even a few free moments here and there for photos and seemed to just be going through the motions in regards to the descriptions and history of Bethlehem. The afternoon portion and guide were much better run and presented This guide was engaged and seemed to actually care about something other than getting finished. BTW, we have been traveling around the world for 10 months and have taken dozens of these types of tours arranged through Viator, Trip Advisor and others and have never been even the least bit dissatisfied before.

Travis_C, May 2023
Elias is a wonderful tour guide. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and committed to making sure that everyone feels included. Additionally, the people of Palestine are extremely generous and kind. Overall a great experience.
Wonderful day in West Bank
tlblume1, May 2023
The guide was excellent. He gave great information about the sites we saw, was funny and answered all our questions. He shared with us his experiences living as a Christian in Palestine. He is definitely a great representative of the company and Israel. The time allotted for each site was adequate and I didn't feel rushed. It was a long day but a great day. Would totally recommend this tour.
We had a great time, and...
