We went on the tour with our two children. Everything went very well. Of course, everything is only briefly touched on in the short time available, but it's worth it. The price is high but you will be competently and safely guided through the sights. Insights into nature, politics and religions are offered. The guide, who also prepared lunch in his house (that was sensationally good!) was very easygoing and extremely individual to the group. We recommend the tour for a quick look at the sights of the West Bank.

This was a great tour. They picked us up in an tour bus with A/C and usb ports to charge your phone on the bus. We had lunch at a buffet place which was nice and they give you plenty of time to buy souvenirs when you are in Bethlehem. My tour guide, Jano Gleizer, is the best! Very informative and has a very outgoing positive attitude that made the tour that much better.

I found this day to be amazing. The Guide was one of the best , knowledgeable with great sense of humour - he made the trip for me .

My guide was Kamal and he was incredibly Knowledgeable and I found the entire tour interesting and informative

The guide was simply brilliant, however the driver was totally oblivious, I would never go up with this person
