What You Can Expect
Explore the Church of the Nativity and the Grotto, the cave in which the birth of Jesus of Nazareth is believed to have occurred. Manger Square is where the majority of religious activity in Bethlehem takes place, with the Church of the Nativity and the Mosque of Omar, the oldest and only mosque in the old city of Bethlehem and a site of great meaning for the Muslims who live in the city.
See where Jesus was placed in a manger after his birth and visit the Milk Grotto, where Jesus, Mary and Joseph took refuge before they fled to Egypt following Jesus’ birth. It is said that while Mary was nursing Jesus here, a drop of milk fell to the ground, turning it white.
Stop by local Greek and Catholic churches before going to Shepherds’ Field — an angel is said to have announced the birth of Jesus here.
The tour concludes with a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels.
Highly recommended. This trip was very interesting, good organized and we had lovely guide.Thank you Michael.
We booked a tour with Bein Harim, which assigned us to Yoav Malachi. First, pre- trip communications was excellent. I had a lot of questions and they responded promptly.
On the day of the tour, Yoav picked us up on the appointed time and even helped us with an issue in our rented apartment, which is another story. He was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. He also attempted to accommodate my overly ambitious plans to see everything. He actually could've gone on to show us more but we were tired towards the end of the day and we just wanted to go home and rest. That being said, our tour was great. We learned a lot, met a fascinating gentleman at the Chutch of Holy Sepulcher, and enjoyed our visit in old Jerusalem.
Highly recommend Yoav at Beit Harim.
The guide did an excellent job. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Friendly and informative guides. Really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it.
Great trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us unique insite to the sites and surroundings. The transport was comfortable. The guide gave us clear direction at transfer points that helped us accross the borders easily and safely.
Having been to Bethlehem on a previous tour ( with a different company) we consider that this tour of Bethlehem was very informative and presented with knowledge of all the places we attended, another good guide explained all places well.
All went perfectly smooth! Our guide was really great and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend this Bethlehem tour.
This was a great trip. Covered all the major sites. Guide was very knowledgeable. After the trip, went to a gift shop, where everything was overpriced, but there was no pressure to buy.
Very well done tour. We packed a lot into a half day tour, and our guide was especially good at helping us negotiate some of the crowded venues.
