  • Jerusalem: Bethlehem and Jericho Day Tour

    1. Jerusalem: Bethlehem and Jericho Day Tour

    After being picked up from Jerusalem, travel to Bethlehem where you will meet your guide before heading into the old city of Bethlehem. Enjoy a guided visit to the Church of the Nativity. Continue your tour with a visit to the Milk Grotto Church before riding to the city of the shepherds, Bayt Sahur where you will visit the Chapel of the Shepherds Field before getting to visit an olive wood factory where you will see artisans crafting wooden sculptures.  Then journey through the wonderful Judean Desert to the lowest point on earth. Have chances to stop and take pictures at the sea level point in the desert overlooking the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, Jericho. Stop and have lunch then pass the Mount of Temptation and drive into Jericho where you will see some of the famed sights in the city including Zaccheus's Tree that is mentioned in the bible.

    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.

great great tour! Boaz is an incredibly interesting person who is knowledgeable about a variety of subjects! I asked him sensitive questions about life as a Palestinian and he answered me not only honestly but also very objectively. His knowledge about the history of Bethlehem and the bible was impressive! great hospitality

The guide did not take us to the queue to watch the manger when we went to the church of nativity, but at the same time, we would not waste two hours in line, and we could see more different scenery. Of course, it depends on your purpose.

Fabulous tour and guide - it was a shame that Qasr el Yahud was closed as it would have been fab to visit!

It was so good. A very attentive guide who explains well. Everything was perfect for a pleasant day

I recommend Elijah Tours in Jerusalem. Everything went as agreed and is organized and correct.
