A terrific tour with plenty of time to enjoy the wonderful Historic and religious sites of Jerusalem and Bethlehem. An absolute must-do tour if time is short when visiting the Holy Land. Apart from the relatively short drive from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the majority of the time is spent following a very knowledgeable guide. To meet the agreement requirements between Israel and Palestine, a switch in vehicles and guides is required, but don’t worry, it is seamless and well coordinated. The driver, tour bus and guide in Bethlehem are equally skilled and conversant. A 5-star tour!
David Ringler is an awesome guide. With a group of 7 friends, we needed to leave a little later, no issue. The program was very fluid, adjusting to our needs. He is very upbeat and knowledgeable, speaks 7 languages and is very sociable. Even though no food/beverages were included, he bought water, beer, shisha... He will make sure the car is cool when you get back. He will get you to the quiet beach at the Dead Sea. Make sure to carve ample of time out, his stories might take a little longer than you've planned time for! :-)
Both guides were excellent. Gerry accompanied us for the entire day and the guide for Bethlehem did the Church of the Nativity part of the tour. I can't remember the name of the Bethlehem guide (it was a girl in her twenties). Both were very knowledgeable and friendly.
The tour is really good. In my personal opinion I think there is not enough time for both places. If you have more time , take two different tours. There is a lot to see in old Jerusalem. You want to spend more time there.
