The hub of religious activity in Bethlehem is Manger Square which is flanked by the Church of the Nativity and also the Mosque of Oman - a site of importance for the many Muslims who live in the city.

At the Manger Square you can walk on the ground where Jesus was laid down after his birth.

  • I missed the trip and therefore cannot comment.

  • Lovely trip. Amazing to see the actual birthplace of Jesus, as well as the field where the shepherds were. We were lucky and didn't have to queue for too long 45 minutes to get into the Church, but be prepared for longer waiting times. Our guide was very informative. Lots of changing of coaches but still very enjoyable.

  • I enjoyed the tour of Bethlehem. I found the pick-ups with all Viator tours to be punctual and easy during the change over of vehicle. It was a fairly fast paced tour but enough time was spent at each site. As the half-day tour was combined with another full-day tour, I was expecting to be back in Jerusalem earlier than we arrived as we were not supposed to be stopping for lunch I thought but we did so because of the full-day tour group were with us sharing the coach. Therefore, I was not back to Jerusalem until about 1:00pm when I expected to arrive back at 1:00pm, to spend the afternoon at the Israel Museum.

  • This was an incredible experience, particularly with the transition from the Israeli controlled side of Jerusalem through security to Bethlehem. I can not imagine visiting Bethlehem unguided. It is worth it simply for the access and time saving.

  • For a half-day trip it felt rushed. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. I like the skip the line for the manger site.

  • The tour is interesting. The guide was helpful. But working with Viator is a nightmare. They're extraordinarily disorganized, e.g. regularly missing morning pick-ups. We booked five trips with Viator and each time we had a huge problem. They'd forget to pick us up, then send a frantic taxi to get us, as we went careening through the streets in the cab while other the other tourists already on the bus waited for us to arrive. Another day they told us the wrong start time so we missed the tour entirely!

  • I enjoyed this tour however I booked an English speaking tour and as there were several Spanish speaking people on the tour who had also booked an English speaking tour and could speak English our guide presented the tour in Spanish and then English. She spent the majority of the time speaking in Spanish and also answered all of peoples questions in Spanish, so I felt like I missed a lot of information, which was very disappointing.

  • Great experience. As a Christian, going into Bethlehem is a must if you are in the area, despite the potential danger. I would note that the Palestinian tour guides and drivers are awesome. Despite being victimized by their Israeli employers, they are upbeat and do a great job explaining the area's history. I was most upset at how Israel treats and puts Trump-like walls around the Palestinian towns and how inhumane they treat residents when they build settlements. Imagine some jackass trying to move in his family into your backyard and fencing your home in to protect his family from the backlash you may inflict on him.

    This may not be the forum to get political, but I was amazed at how Jews, who were victims of the Holocaust can be so cruel and treat others as bad as they do as occupiers. Shame on us all for allowing this to continue.

    Also as posted in my other reviews on tours with this company. Avid their VIP upgrade at all is a rip off. You get nothing other than paying more that everyone else on the tour.

  • This was our first trip of the holiday and it was excellent. Our guide gave us a first class account of everything. Booked a number of trips with Viator and all were very good. Would definitely recommend.

  • This was a great short trip to Bethlehem. We saw all the important sites. Our guides, Itamar and Nabil, were excellent!
