Super day, super interesting visits with interesting exchanges with our guide. It is still a brief overview, so we could not go to the cellar of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. Breathtaking landscapes with our awesome Georges guide! I highly recommend.

Great tour if you only have one day to see it all. BEWARE: lunch is not included and the only place they stop for lunch is a location with only one restaurant and no other food options available. They will charge $16/ 60 ILS for a mediocre lunch buffet.
