Unforgettable experience, would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience Jerusalem and Bethlehem highlights in one day. We were 4 people so we asked to skip the Dead Sea (as we already saw this) and personalize the tour for our needs, and they accommodated our request. Our guide Wassim Suliman even spoke perfect Italian and he was the absolute best - he provided super clear and detailed explanations of the history of the Holy Land, answered all our questions, made us skip the queues in the Holy Sepulcher and just made the whole day so enjoyable and memorable! We will never forget that day!

The reps were amazing so much know ledge about the history which I wanted . I was just sad that we only had 20 minutes in the Dead Sea as we didn’t arrive there until 4.25 pm . I think we shouldn’t have spent so much time in Bethlehem eating as we could have ate in the Dead Sea and people could have chosen to eat if they wanted to .

We had a great time the guide including the bus drive we’re great a lot of information and had great people on the tour with us.

The company organising the trip and the guide himself were both well organised, well informed and the trip was good value.

Amazing sites, extremely knowledgeable and engaging tour guides, well worth the trip!
