Our guide was very helpful and knows the stories very well, the only downside was that they only gave us 20 minutes to spend in the Jordan River, we wanted to get baptized there, but due to time all we could do was look at it. We understand that this tour was informational only. So if you're taking it because you'd like to spend time on the Jordan River, make sure you're taking the right one.

its okay, guides were informative but too fast, too fast that we did not have chance to give tips, warning for rest room in jordan river, its too dirty , they could ask tourist for entrance fee to help maintain, you have to be patirnce in visiting the manger, you have to wait for the mass to finish in order to go inside

The tour was jam-packed but organized (only minor delay at start due to bus assignment). Organizers did their best to meet the itinerary. There are some additional entrance fee at Monastery at Mt. Temptation via cable car (~40 NIS), and Old Jericho Ruins (~20 NIS). Overall, the event was worth it.
