Awesome Experience
Erwin_C, 03-08-2022
Very organized tour. Guide was awesome. I was expecting a big group of tourist but we were only 5 in the van. Very good company and staff
Unexpected, full and incredible day!

Judah Tours and their people treated us incredibly! The guide for each part of the day was knowledgeable, generous, and each were great hosts! On the drive, we made small stops at some Banksy paintings and got to learn more about the Israel-Palestine border and learn about the personal perspectives and impacts of a complex situation.

In the afternoon, since we had a small group, they gave us a near-private tour and added in lots of extra stops along the way that we didn’t expect to get to beyond the Dead Sea!

The whole day was a treat and the entire team was kind, professional and generous. I wouldn’t hesitate to book with them again and recommend them to others!

For anyone else wondering:
- morning - drive and visit the 3 churches in Bethlehem and a walk along the historic road, included stops at the border and a rooftop view for coffee
- mid-day - stop at an olive wood carving factory, were given lunch there
- afternoon - separated into our various groups (some returned to Jerusalem, the rest of the group by the remaining tours we booked). We were transferred to a private driver who drove us to some various sights, ending at the Dead Sea.
- the Dead Sea is more of a “float” and you can’t stay in long, so we really only stayed around the water itself for 20-30min. They do have showers and areas to change there, bring a towel and bathing suit

Great tour. Only complaint was van was 30 min late for pick up after Dead Sea then broke down to hotel causing extra 30 minute standing around waiting.

Experience was very good couple of events to note
1. This was an English speaking tour to Christian sites and so did not appreciate arabic Music on the bus which sounded very much like muslim prayers
2. Our vehicle broke down on return from Dead Sea, but they were quick to get a replacement
interesting trip, friendly guides, bad organisation
