What people are saying about Bethlehem
Guide was not the very best, time given for HOLY CHURCH of sepulchre was too little just 40mins, considering the huge crowds and the importance of this church, the long distances we travel to come n expenditure involved, we certainly wished to see Jesus tomb, in the bargain we got late coming out, and our guide had left us behind, we missed the bus, without a phone we requested a shopkeeper and contacted the company, we were surprised with thr promptness that the company contacted us back and kept a taxi waiting for us and helped us join the bus again. However the tour ended much before time within 8hrs when we were told 11hrs, hence we feel at least 1hour should be given for thr holy church of sepulchre considering the crowds there to worship and waiting in line for Jesus tomb.
The tour starts early but that's understandable since there's a lot of territory to cover. I really enjoyed Jerusalem - a person could spend several days exploring the sights, but for a view of the highlights and historical/religious perspectives like I wanted, this was perfect. Bethlehem felt a little less structured and there was a fair amount of time spent trying to park the coach when I thought we could have been touring. Still, the Church of the Nativity was worth it. Finishing up at the Dead Sea was awesome and there was enough time to enjoy it and relax a little (i.e. get a drink or two) before the journey back to Tel Aviv. Good value.
Noam hat a lot knowledge and explained a lot about all kind of things! Best informed tour guide I’ve ever had! Tour was some time a little bit rushed because some attendants kept staying behind and we had to wait- even Noam keeps saying that they please stick to the group... you never know who you get in your group. Jerusalem and Bethlehem was amazing! More time at the dead sea would have been better. Food was okay. Place upstairs is better...maybe with more time and a menu to choose..
Very strong experience, the guide in Jerusalem loved his job and he loved to speak, we get an overview about the country, I learned the problems and a lot of information about Israel and Jerusalem. But we rushed and we had no meal until Betlehem in the evening, so you should take your own lunch. Also count with a different weather in Jerusalem, there was 10 degrees less than in Eilat!
Well organized an well timed your. The tour guide was excellent looking after each and everyone in the group( 18 oeople). The visit to the holy site was arranged very well, barely 15 minutes waiting time. Considering that it was a Sunday, when masses are regularly held, it was perfect timing.
