Beautiful tour to discover Bethlehem but above all the church of the Nativity. Most of the tour takes place at the church, and a small part dedicated to the city. The guide was very knowledgeable and knew how to entertain the group by managing everyone's needs in the best possible way.

Almost perfect

I really enjoyed the tour. Good guide with a wide knowledge. A lot of valuable and interesting information - both about main attractions in Betlehem, as well as some socio-political context. The only one thing was missing, was a bit more free time in the city. A 30 minutes longer free time and it would be perfect.

A terrific tour, no mucking about; Ashraf knows his stuff and ensures you get into the right places to get through lines quickly. Other tour guides defer to Ashraf; you’ll see what I mean when you visit the church if the nativity. Best value for money.
