  • The tour was AWESOME. My husband and I toured Bethlehem and Jericho on December 2, 2017. The tour was full of exciting, memorable and historical sites. On this full day of touring we visited Bethlehem and Jericho, the oldest city in the world, we saw the oldest Sycamore tree, which Zacheus climbed in order to spot Jesus. We also rode the cable car passage up the Mount of Temptation where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch on the mountain. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who have plans to visit Israel.

  • 3.5 stars. Had to wait too long on the pick up and transfer service. Tour didn't seem as organised as the others. Costs of the souvenirs on the Bethlehem tour were at a much higher price than what obtained For the same product on the Jerusalem side - although we were advised of the contrary.

  • An amazing tour, this experience allowed us to see and experience both biblically significant places with such ease. I don't know that we would've been able to visit these places on our own particularly because of the nuances of traveling inside the Palestinian controlled West Bank. Visiting Christ's birthplace was an experience we will never forget. Our guide was very informative and patient with our questions. Taking the cable car up the Mount of Temptation for lunch afforded us with sweeping views not only of Jericho but the Dead Sea as well.

    The only aspect that somewhat put a damper on an otherwise humbling experience of being at the very place where Christ was born 2000 years ago was the circus-like atmosphere. There was no crowd control whatsoever in a place mobbed by tourists. Hence, people were just jockeying for position and pushing and shoving. While that was beyond this tour operator's control, it made the experience a tad unpleasant it magnified humankind's worst behavior in a place where we were supposed to revere Christ. Otherwise, this tour is highly recommended and worth it!

  • Fabulous tour. Staff/tour guides were very knowledgeable and pleasant. Tour co was on time and bus exchanges going into the Palestinian territories were seamless. Felt comfortable all the time. Bethlehem was so interesting and Jericho was amazing. Great lunch on Mt. Temptation and tram ride up the mountain were worth the added cost. Really enjoyed the day.
