Bethelehem unforgettable
Luiz_I, 27-12-2022
The tour is unforgettable, everything that was expected happened. A single slip was the delay of Jericho's guide but when he showed up he did the job.
Exactly what we were looking for
Martin_H, 18-12-2022
We enjoyed this trip very much thanks to our experienced and knowledgeable guides Johnny and Amir. They exceeded our expectations. The organization was very good, and there's an option to buy a tasty meat or veggie lunch sandwich.
Wow, just wow!
Brian_B, 18-12-2022
The entire day was meaningful and exciting to visit the historical places of ancient Israel and Jesus' life. Seeing the actual places of these historical stories brought a tangible feel to them. The guides really knew how to avoid the crowds and explain the historical, religious, and cultural importance of each site. I now have a real place in my mind while reading these events in the Bible.
The guide and time of visit make a huge difference.
Tara_Z, 28-12-2022
The sights we visited were all incredible. We were fortunate to be in Bethlehem after Christmas as we were able to see everything without huge crowds. Our morning tour guide was difficult to understand and hard to hear but led us around knowledgeably. Our afternoon guide to Jerico and River Jordan (Amir) was excellent - knew the history, spoke clearly and loudly, and answered many extra questions. His young energy and passion for his country were evident.
