Excellent tour with lots of unexpected treats!! We saw everything on the itinerary and more! Elias was a terrific guide, and George was also fantastic at the Church of the Nativity. There was no line for the nativity grotto, and we were able to go in and spend time there without a crowd. We saw lots of Banksy’s original street art, had the chance to try authentic falafel, Arabic coffee, baklava, za’atar pizza, and shop for genuine handmade gifts and souvenirs that were very fairly priced. After Bethlehem, half of the group split for the Dead Sea, and the rest of us went to Jericho and the baptism site of Jesus on the river Jordan. The driver was also equally knowledgeable about everything on the tour, and was kind enough to drop me off directly in front of my hotel at the end of the day. It was a well run and highly organized tour with expert guides and quite a few lovely surprises. The hospitality and experience were five stars!

Seems like this service was subcontracted to Eliat tours I believe, and we glad it happen because we ended up having a great local touch experience with the tour guys. Cetri, I believe is his name was great and knowledgeable and with a lot of patience. Great way to see Bethehelem and Jericó.

The tour was really amazing! Boaz is a great guide, patient and friendly. Always giving us something to try and experience the city. He was with us during the morning part and gave us a lot of information - religious, political and cultural. During the afternoon, the guide was good too, nothing to complain about. Fortunately, we got to see the grotto at nativity church and did everything as planned.
