Dia was a very accommodating and easy going tour guide. He tried his best to ensure that everyone was enjoying their visit to Bethlehem. Eventually, we were brought to the Elijah Tour shop and greeted by Elijah himself. Everyone was very friendly and kind. You should really join the tour with them.

This was an excellent tour, well timed and made better by a capable and experienced local (Elijah Tours) guide and the special Church guide. Our tour guide was always eager to explain, using his knowledge as well as his local roots and sense of humor. Our tour was never boring, and also very filling with the tasty treats brought along by our tour guide.

Elijah is a very good operator and the guide that day (Bowers if I get his name correct) made it even more special and kept feeding us all the time. One area of confusion was that at the King David's hotel since there are so many tour operators it is very difficult to find yours as there are no placards or information readily available.
