Great and safe driver who told us a lot about the places we passed. He stopped several times to let us make pictures. He made the trip very comfortabel and interesting for us. We had a great local guide in Bethlehem who told us a lot about the history and the local situation and showed us around to the interesting places. The Dead Sea was a special experience and so was Jericho. We had a long and exciting day. Thank you all for making this happen.

The bus and the guide were great. We left on time from the starting point and our guide in Bethlehem really went out of his way to show us everything. Very long wait in the church. Then to a souvenir shop, which in my experience is a bit of a waste of time. Although the Dead Sea was very impressive, we were in the most filthy part that exists. The accommodation was fine and you could shower and change clothes here, but the beach was very dirty. Plastic and other waste everywhere.

Great trip. Bethlehem guide knew a lot about the history. Dead Sea is also very cool to float in. Unfortunately, the driver did not adhere to the agreed collection time at the Dead Sea. He was supposed to be there at 2:40 PM, but only came on at 3:10 PM. Because of this we were waiting 30 minutes for nothing. Also did not apologize for this. We also thought it was a shame that there were few collection points and delivery points.
