Great tour and guide. Managed to cover a lot in a short time. Would highly recommend if you are limited with time.
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
great tour see the church of the nativity where Christ was born and the milk grotto and sheperd's field a great 1/2 day tour
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.
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.
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.
The trip itself was great and informative but we had to wait maybe half an hour or so for another people to join our group at Jerusalem University. Also at the end of the tour, the driver did not send back to our respective hotels only dropped us at Jaffa Gate. Which was in turn okay for me and other guys as we wanted to go to Church of Holy Sepulchre for another self-tour.
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.
Not bad, the Bethlehem side guide was very good. Avoid doing this on Sundays, hard to get into several sites due to masses being done.
Enjoyable tour for the short time we had. Guides and driver were pleasant and imformative.
It was good. Some unpleasant experience was attempt of the driver of the companyto avoid to drop us to the hotel claiming that his engagement is to bring us to the hotel from wherethe bus starts the tour, and to make us to pay additional for taxi to bring us back to the hotel althought prior booking this tour I checked wheter it includes hotel drop off where I stay and from where I was picked up.

Good tip, guide turned up on time but a certain amount of messing around while they bundle you in to the correct coaches at a distribution center on Mt Scopus. The guide was very good at getting us around lengthy queues at the Church of the Nativity but then forced us into a pricey Palestinian tourist-tat shop, telling us they were going to give us free mint tea as "traditional Palestinian hospitality".
