En principo el tour se retraso bastante en su hora de comienzo.Es un tour corto pero que no esta mal. El problema fue la sra.guia que parecia llevaba un turbo puesto y con ganas de acabar. Casi no podiamos hacer foto. No dio ni 5 minutos para disfrutar de los lugares. Explicacion y a lo siguiente. Yo se lo dije. Eramos solo 6 personas .y no me dejo saborear ni recrear el lugar. Se detuvo mas tiempo en la tienda a la que nos llevo que en el tour. Ella decepcionante y encima pidio propina. Vamos...
Era un tour en español pero en realidad pusieron un guía que hablaba en inglés y en español .Muy desprolijo. Luelgo el tiempo fue escaso ya que el guía nos llevó corriendo en todos lados .Luego estuvimos esperando casi media hora para regresar y nos llevó a un negocio de ventas de souvenirs adonde perdimos casi una hora en vez de aprovechar ese tiempo en los lugares que visitamos
La visita a Belen es muy recomendable si bienes solo por horas el hecho de cruza a Palestina le da a uno otra vision de la region. Si bien las visitas a los sitios son muy cortas en tiempo le dan a uno oportunidad de estar alli.
If it had been any other day I am sure we would have been able to see the cave. The day we went, Christmas Eve, it was a zoo. I don't think Christmas Day is any better. There was a 3 hour line. We did see the church and the holiday parade.
OK tour but the transportation is not great. We were told that they would pick us up at 8:30 AM at our hotel. A Taxi pulls up late and tells us he is taking us to the tour start. We get to a location and the taxi drive tells us to get out and the tour will start here. There were lots of groups of people all going to tours in different parts of Israel, so we had to keep asking around for the Bethlehem tour. We found the right person and he put us in a van with a few others and drove us to a hotel in Jerusalem were we waited another half hour for a different van to come get. That van took us half way to Bethlehem where we met another van and a car. The van could only hold six so our group split up between the car and the van. We were wondering if we would ever make it to Bethlehem but we eventually did. We visited the Shepherds field and cave and the Mary's Milk Cave. The guide provided very little information about each of the sites but you did get to see them and walk around. We went to the Church of the Nativity which was in use because our tour was on Sunday. The guide took us in part of the church and initially said we couldn't see any more because the church was in use. We also wouldn't be able to see the birth cave of Jesus because the line was too long, our group of 8 was too big, and the tour of the birth cave wouldn't be able to start until after the church service was open. Our guide found another guide who could take part of our group and we eventually were able to see the cave but we had to tip the other guide at least 20 shekels per person.
We ended the tour at a store in Bethlehem were the put strong pressure on you to buy things that are expensive and then to eat at a restaurant. I wouldn't do a tour with this group again but we did get to see all the important sites.
The trip was good and the guide excellent. However, and this was mentioned by our guide, it is NOT recommended to do this trip on a Sunday as the Church of the Nativity is crowded and there are restrictions in place for seeing it all
Terrible. More interested in the souvenir shop. We waited an hour there. No one buying but still waited. The had to walk up to Church. Church under renovation. Can’t see much. Catholic Church closed until 2 pm so missed it. Guide no history at all. Said Jesus born lived and died.Well not good enough
