  • The actual sites were great to see. It was great to luxuriate in the Dead Sea, and Jerusalem was really interesting. Bethlehem is not all that exciting, but it was nice to see as a little kicker at the end.

    I gave this tour a low rating not because of the sites, but because of the actual tour. We were constantly switching vans some without working air conditioning and people were getting on and off. It was rather confusing, and for the final drive back to Tel Aviv they did not even have enough seats in the van for everyone someone was sitting on the floor.

    Between seeing the Dead Sea and Jerusalem, our van broke down. This happens, and another van was called out to pick us up. I understand that unforeseen events happen. My issue related to what followed. Our time in Jerusalem was cut in half, so we were rushed through the sites. We were also told that no one was allowed to stop at any store or stall to purchase any items. When one person tried to buy something not after browsing - she literally saw an item as we were passing a stall and wanted to take one minute to purchase it, she was told by out guide that she was not allowed and if she did this she would be left behind.

    I can understand that we were on a tight schedule, so we were forbidden to shop. However, our next stop was Bethlehem. When we got there, we were told that we had arrived in Bethlehem early and we could not go to the Church of Nativity yet because it was not open yet but that we could wait in a restaurant where we had stopped. This sounded odd as it was nearly 4:00 in the afternoon - how could the church not be open yet?

    As it turns out, it was not a restaurant it was a shop. However, the items in the shop were of much poorer quality than what was in Jerusalem, and it was 5 to 10 times as much. It became very clear very quickly that we were forbidden to shop in Jerusalem so we would spend our money in this shop. I have been on tours that take you to shops to spend money usually because the guide gets a kick back from the shop for doing this. However, this is why I went with Viator, because I did not want to have to deal with such scams.

    After all of this - the van breaking down, a rushed Jerusalem tour, being forbidden to shop in Jerusalem, and then being forced to spend 30 minutes in a shop in Bethlehem with poorly made and incredibly expensive products - Viator did nothing to compensate us for this. Apparently, this type of tour is business as usual for Viator.

    I will say that our guide/driver in Bethlehem did stop at an extra site requested by a passenger on the way back, and this proved to be one of the best parts of Bethlehem, so I should point that out to be fair.

    The sites are great - I highly recommend seeing them. However, if you are booking with Viator because you want piece of mind that a truly professional operator will be handling your tour, you might be surprised.

  • It was a very nice experience although the driver was very quiet, he did not say a word. The experience in the Dead Sea was very interesting not to be able to sink. Jerusalem was fantastic.

  • Long trip with changes in tour guides. They forgot about lunch and we finally had lunch 9 hours into the tour in a small café. We were all exhausted and famished. Asked several times when we were going to eat if it was at the Dead Sea since there was a café there. Waiting 9 hour is just a little to long in that type of environment. Driver spoke on phone a lot during our tour. The guide through Bethlehem was interesting.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Fabulous tour and knowledgeable guides in all places. Microphone in bus was not working well which could then not be heard at back but that was minor. There was no stop for lunch which was not ideal and then at app.17.00 in Bethlehem we were directed to a cafe. Did not want to eat at this time as wanted a proper meal back in Tel Aviv but there was no option but to wait for 30 minutes.
    All in all a good trip covering many places but would recommend bringing some food along .
