excellent guide

I got a spectacular guide, really one of the best guides I've had on any tour. Amro (that's his last name) is a super well-prepared, well-studied guide, he knows how to explain in an extraordinary way, he spoke objectively about super-sensitive topics without taking sides, he opened a space for questions and answers that was most interesting because he is very prepared and it's also funny, I learned a lot.

The tour is operated by Tourist Israel tours. They haven't organized it well and we didn't have time to visit Qumran. The bus arrived half hour later than it supposed to and we were taken to a shop with souvenirs first thing in Bethlehem before visiting anything. I had to wait like 40 minutes so the bus take us to the Nativity Church. The driver was rude with everybody stressing the guides with phone calls and putting pressure on them. Otherwise the places we visited are fascinating and the guide from Jericho was really nice and give us a lot of information about the place. I recommend booking a half day tour for Bethlehem as the 1.5 hours allocated on this tour is not enough and a full day tour to Jericho, Dead Sea and Qumran.
