Full description
Bethlehem offers even the non-believers amongst us a breathtaking and educational day trip from Jerusalem. First, we'll drive to Bethlehem and visit the Church of Nativity and Manger's Square, for a look at Jesus' birthplace. Your guide will also stop with you for an overview of the Shepherd's field before returning to Jerusalem. As you drive through the Judean desert, stop by the Good Samaritan Inn before heading on to Jericho, one of the oldest cities in the world. Here, it's easy to imagine what life might have been like 2000 years ago when the wise men headed on their way to meet the newborn baby Jesus. We'll also stop at the Zacheus Sycamore for a view out at the Mount of Temptation, where Jesus is said to have been tempted by the devil. This ancient site has over 25 ancient cities and is still being explored.

    Good

    Good tour. Wether was too hot in Jericho (+43C).

    Information from the guide was good. Choice of restaurant for lunch does not accept credit card - bad! Some people couldn't eat like this. The time in Bethlehem was only related to the church, not downtown. In Jericho the highlight of the chairlift was not used - bad. Nice tour without a real highlight - a shame
