The Basics

Jericho offers a bounty of historic landmarks, including the Monastery of the Qurantul, the spot where according to the Bible, Jesus resisted Satan after fasting for 40 days in the desert, and the 5th-century St. George’s Monastery, built into the cliff face, with its beautiful mosaic floor. Visitors can also see Nabu Must Mosque, the site where Muslims believe Moses was buried.

Bethlehem, Jericho & Jordan River Tour from Tel Aviv
Really good: 1 Jericho was brilliantly delivered by a very knowledgeable tour guide who knew a great deal of historical facts 2 Qumran was informative, but could do with a better tourist facilities i.e. open the restaurant a bit earlier in a day 3 Dead Sea was OK but could do with a bit of cleaning - the beach was filthy 4 Bethlehem was lovely despite the Church of Nativity being in the middle of restoration. I'd happily do this tour again.

Bethlehem & Jericho Full Day Tour from Jerusalem & Tel Aviv
Guide for Betlem was really good and funny! We did an interesting walking tour in the historical center of Betlem and see also the Nativity Grotto. Amazing also to see the Banksy graffiti. The company gave us a lot of gifts, food tastings, wooden cross or star and a sandwich with falafel! Gerico portion was unguided and really poor. I believed to see the monastery but it was not included. All the rest was really perfect!

Full-Day Bethlehem, Jericho, and Jordan River Tour
Both Boaz and Mohammed Khadri were really knowledgeable about the history, culture and religion of the towns. They were both very warm, cheerful, passionate and funny. Even the guide specific to The Church of the Nativity, was excellent. The tour takes you into the heart of the towns...and the most amazing thing is how well people with different views co-exist. Thank you! Palestine will always be in my heart!

Full-Day Bethlehem, Jericho, and Jordan River Tour
Absolutely excellent experience - the guys on the tour were brilliant, informative, friendly, warm... I felt like I gained a great insight to all of the sights, felt safe throughout and thoroughly interested. We got given a few freebies to try - the falafel given was the best falafel I have ever eaten.

Tel es-Sultan

Jericho is often referred to as the earliest known site of human civilization, and the ruins of Tel-es Sultan tell the story. The ruins of dwellings and stairways here date back 10,000 years or more, and give visitors a look at what else might have been. The remains of a tower at Tel es-Sultan suggest Jericho may have been the world’s first fortified city.
