Outstanding tour
Linda_G, 12-04-2022
Both of our guides were very knowledgeable and interesting. They explained everything and answered all our questions. George, our guide in Bethlehem, spoke Aramaic and said The Lords Prayer over us in Aramaic. We visited the grotto where Jesus was born as well as all the other locations on our itinerary. We were given food and drink surprises and got to visit the local people. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour. Nothing negative to say about it.
The best experience of Bethlehem in half a day

Wonderful trip. Tour guides were very nice and helpful. They showed us many fascinating sites, and provided us with delicious snacks and hot beverages. This was the best experience on a guided tour that I have had.
Great tour - highly recommend!

This was a wonderful tour of Bethlehem, milk grotto,Shepards field, associated history, and a great chance to see the surrounding communities. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable locals who were extremely welcoming, kind and gracious. We also appreciated the opportunity to learn more about Palestinian culture.
Great tour, great hosts/guides

We enoyed the tour with the family of three being our guides. We felt part of the Palesitinian community. Value for the money was good.

Apart from the visits to the grotto, churches, shepherds fields and the fences, we were treated with local delicacies. This was not at a store, so it we did not experience a dressed up sales event but rather an exchange of cultures.

Yes, the tour ended at a local souvenir shop of the community, but this was limited to just 20 minutes with no pressure at all. And to our suprise at the end of the tour there wasn't even an opportunity to leave a tip.

This was illustrative for the good vibe during the trip.
Excellent Bethlehem tour, detailed and smooth
