Full description
Bethlehem offers even the non-believers amongst us a breathtaking and educational day trip from Jerusalem. First, we'll drive to Bethlehem and visit the Church of Nativity and Manger's Square, for a look at Jesus' birthplace. Your guide will also stop with you for an overview of the Shepherd's field before returning to Jerusalem. As you drive through the Judean desert, stop by the Good Samaritan Inn before heading on to Jericho, one of the oldest cities in the world. Here, it's easy to imagine what life might have been like 2000 years ago when the wise men headed on their way to meet the newborn baby Jesus. We'll also stop at the Zacheus Sycamore for a view out at the Mount of Temptation, where Jesus is said to have been tempted by the devil. This ancient site has over 25 ancient cities and is still being explored.

    Very Informative and Accommodting

    The tour was great. I especially liked when they accommodated my request to see the Milk Grotto which was not in the actual tour itself. A lot of driving but worth it. Wish we would have briefly stopped at the Dead Sea I stead of driving by. The place we stopped for lunch was a nightmare. No organization...a bit of a free for all. Terrible food. It would be great if the tour company found another nicer less chaotic spot for lunch.

    Good guides, Bethlehem better than Jericho to visit.

    The guides were good and competent especially in Bethlehem but the forced tour in the tourist restaurant and even more in the souvenir shops sponsored by the guides with very high prices and tourist things I did not like.
