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!

Great tour

We had a very good time and the choice of the small group tour made it easier for us. The only flaw is the speed with which you can see Jerusalem, but in half a day it is actually difficult to visit everything in detail. Excellent guide, both in terms of preparation and willingness to create a good group

Great guide, great Jerusalem

Great small group tour with very good guide. Especially Jerusalem is highly recommended with a guide. Hotel pickup and drop off very good. We personally didn't like Bethlehem. Only the Church of the Nativity can be seen. The bus must be changed at the Palestine border. New guide and different driver. After that we were pushed into a souvenir shop that we didn't want to go to. The guide and driver helped in some cases, which didn't leave a good impression. The prices in the store were absolutely overpriced.
