The tour was jam-packed but organized (only minor delay at start due to bus assignment). Organizers did their best to meet the itinerary. There are some additional entrance fee at Monastery at Mt. Temptation via cable car (~40 NIS), and Old Jericho Ruins (~20 NIS). Overall, the event was worth it.

This was a jam-packed tour of Bethlehem and Jericho. We got to see a lot and the tour guide was very good at explaining everything. The only weird thing is having to go back to Jerusalem meeting point before going to Jericho for the second half, that was a bit of a waste of time.

Everything organized with the minimum of perfection and attention to detail. Maximum punctuality on departure, we were pampered for the entire duration of the journey with air-conditioned buses and bottled water always available. The guides were very well trained. Extra lunch was brought to us at an average price. Really recommended tour!
