You get to see just Bethlehem and the most important sites in Bethlehem, just a simple, relaxing, half-day tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, super friendly, told us lots of amazing stories, saw a side to Bethlehem that I thought I'd never see! My advice to people booking this tour is that it might be a little easier to book on any day other than a Sunday cause the Church of the Nativity was VERY crowded, and also BRING YOUR PASSPORT

Very good tour...lots of information and biblical places. Good introduction to Jerusalem I would recommend to come back one more day by yourself to see more and slowly.... The guide was pretty good but would be helpfull if he speaks a little bit more slowly.
In Bethlehem very interesting the visit but shocking how dirty can be the West Bank of Israel...something difficult to understand having in consideration the number of tourists that they recieve annually.
Be aware of the hot summer in this country if you do not handle high temperatures well.
My boyfriend and I really loved this tour!! The guides (both in Jerusalem and Bethlehem) were really good. The guide Norbert seemed really passionate about what he was doing and we liked listening to him. I would recommend this tour.
Nonstop excitement! Guide Amir was an absolute wealth of information. Picked us up right on time at our hotel. Bus was comfortable and we pretty much saw everything there was to see in Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Walked all over the city. Great lunch with a fantastic view of the city of Jerusalem. Would do it again tomorrow if I could.
Excellent exploration of three main sites in Bethlehem and usefully dropped off in Jerusalem to make your own way back I recommend the train as it goes through some epic countryside.
A really good day trip. The driver/guide Ron was very good - especially as he had to improvise. It was the Orthodox Easter and the Christian Quarter was closed so we were unable to see the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. However, King David's tomb and the Room of the Last Supper were worthy replacements.
Lunch at Bethlehem was well organised and the opportunities for shopping were appreciated.
I was collected on-time by the tour bus at the collection point which was a two minute walk from my central Jerusalem hotel.
Remember to take to your passport as Bethlehem is located in the West Bank and you actually have to leave Israel to visit it.
We changed guides once we were in the Palestinian Territories and our guide Elijah, a Palestinian Christian, was friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to see all the main sites and secured access for us to the Grotto of the Nativity.
The tour ends in a local gift shop where your purchases help to support local Palestinian Christian families and most people on the tour bought one or two items.
My only complaint about the tour, and the reason that I didn't give it five stars, is that I would have liked to have been taken to the so-called Separation Wall to take a few photographs.
Great tour! Itamar, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable.
I took a star off for 2 reasons:
1. The lunch place we were taken to was not good. Expose tourists to better and more authentic lunch places.
2. The Bethlehem part of the tour felt a little tense and not pleasant. I wish it was under the Israeli authority that way we would have had a more consistent experience.
The guide was knowledgeable and showed us the main sights in Jerusalem. However, she didn't count us properly and lost me, it took me 30 min of wandering alone through the small streets of Jerusalem to find the group and I was very worried as I did not feel safe alone. In that sense she did her job poorly. I had to phone the agency to get her mobile number and agree a place to meet. Not cool. The ride to Bethlehem was short, we only saw the nativity church and an overpriced souvenir shop.. and the local Bethlehem guide did not speak much about the sights.

Loved the dead sea floating experience! I tried really hard to drown but I just couldn and #39;t. Lol!
Wasn and #39;t a huge fan of Masada but I guess that and #39;s personal preference.
Jerusalem and Bethlehem were super cool. Our guide was very informative and funny.
If you go with a group, you have to put up with group activities. In this case, it meant spending more time shopping for knick-knacks and waiting for bus transfers than I would have otherwise enjoyed. The guide was great, and the itinerary was decent. The addition of Bethlehem - wasn't really worth it in retrospect - stick to the Jerusalem itinerary unless you have a strong reason to want to see the church of the nativity...
Had a great tour with our guide, Amir who was very informative. As Bethlehem is in the Palestinian territory, we were turned over to George for the tour in Bethlehem. I loved the tour and would recommend it to anyone visiting Israel.
Out of the 4 tours that I booked with Viator,this one was the most enjoyable thanks to our guide Yoav. He made it educational, fun and exciting. I highly recommend it. Bethlehem was also a good experience. This is a must do tour if one is in Israel.

Sachi (excuse my spelling) was the BEST tour guide. I loved this historic and entertaining tour. The Western Wall was the highlight as well as the fresh squeezed pomegranate orange juice along the path to the Church of the Holy Sepluchre. Bethlehem was a little less impressive but a must see.
It's a good tour, very nice experience. We walked all four quarters in the old city of Jerusalem. The tour to Bethlehem also went smoothly. The tour guide is very responsible. The only thing is that the time that we spent in Jerusalem is relatively short. Maybe a full day tour at Jerusalem will be better.
It was ok...Bethlehem itself is a big disappointment but the driver and guide were very good,,,
We had a great day and after booking Masada and Dead Sea with you the other day we were pretty sure we would: Norbert, our guide, was extremely attentive and he shared his knowledge of the place accessibly. He even took care of one French speaker which was great! We saw as much Jerusalem and Bethlehem as the time allowed and came back home filled with impressions and memories! Highly recommended!
Please don't worry if your pick up coach is delayed upto 45 mins .. as they have to stop pick up many others. Long long queues at Bethlehem to get anywhere. Our guide to Jericó was amazing but the palastinian guide was well something else!
A very well organized trip.
