    Highlight of Visit
    Bryan_M
    , Jun 2022
    Our guide from Elijah Tours was outstanding - very knowledgeable, informative, and engaging without being overbearing. This was easily the highlight of our trip. Our Mercedes van was very comfortable, and the small group size was just right. We saw the major historic sites in Bethlehem, learned about the culture of the region, and had time afterwards to explore Jerusalem on our own. It was very easy and enjoyable to take the train back from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv at the end. Highly recommended.

    The tour was exceptional. They picked us up on time from a central location in Jerusalem. Our guide was knowledgeable, and gave us a wonderful insight into the Bethlehem from a historical and religious perspective. We made a short stop in a cafe in Bethlehem - had very good coffee and got to see the vehicle that Pope Francis rode in during his visit to Bethlehem. Truly one of the best tours I have been on. Not to be missed if Bethlehem is on your itinerary.

    We had an awesome and fun-filled experience with our tour guide! Seeing the place where Christianity started and the birth town of Jesus will leave you amazed in every way possible. I’m so grateful to see Bethlehem - our guide knows very well of the town’s history, chapels and he’ll make sure to bring you to a souvenir shop afterwards! Right on!

    Best Value for money Tour of Bethlehem

    Our tour guide Samir was friendly and full of knowledge. He was a pleasure to spend time with. The sites were amazing - seeing the birth place of Jesus, the resting place of the three kings and Shepards was all absolutely fascinating. The tour was well organised and I would highly recommend for solo travelers.

    Excellent Tour and Sights

    I had an excellent tour with Zuluf. Due to tourism being low during COVID-19, Bethlehem just opened back up. I was extremely fortunate that I booked on a Thursday because no one else was on my tour but myself. I got to see so much and had the experience of being able to walk right in to some sights that typically take hours to see or limited times on how long you can spend there. Zuluf was extremely knowledgeable and filled me in on a lot of history. He also asked what I wanted him to focus on and I said whatever he could tell me. He also sent me photos from all the sights were taken. I highly recommend visiting Bethlehem with Elijah Tours.

    The half-day tour was the best investmest I made during my trip to Jerusalem! The tour covered the most essential places in Bethlehem and the tour guides as well as the driver did their best to offer an unforgettable experience. It needs to be said that due to Covid and a lack of other tourists, I received a very personalized tour, but I am sure that bigger groups get just as much out of it. Especially the Church of Nativity was an impressive place, for religious and non-religious people alike.

    Very enjoyable and knowledgeable guide. Gave plenty of context for the city, region, and history. Didn't feel like missing the grotto was a negative. Came away with much more understanding of the experience in the West Bank while also seeing important Christian sites. Highly recommend.

    A perfect half-day tour. The guides manage to cram a lot of interesting stuff about Bethlehem and the surrounds in the tour. We had three guides, each one versed in the area, the West bank and the Church of The Nativity. They also feed us well with local food. Highly recommended.

    Bethlehem is very charming. I’m definitely glad I made the trip. The tour started off with checking out some of the graffiti on the wall at the West Bank which I found very interesting. If you are into Banksy, you can check out some of his work. All of the guides were super friendly, informative and even funny! They were very patient and I didn’t feel rushed at places we stopped. There was enough time to have a little mooch around the area. Our group was very lucky in that the queues to view the spot where Jesus was born and the manger weren’t too long. So we were able to go in, see, touch the stone and take pictures. I don’t think this is usually part of the tour as the queues can be long. I did not have expectations of this going in, but felt very fortunate for the experience. You need not fear going hungry, even if you skip breakfast due to the early start. They provide many opportunities to sample local food including bread, baklava and falafel. I thought it was a great mix of visiting historical sights and getting to see the countryside and surrounding areas of Bethlehem. It was short, sweet and definitely a good way to spend half a day!

    This was by far the best tour I've ever been on. The guides were super lovely and kept giving us falafel, breads, sweets and we even got some lunch (which we didn't think was part of the tour!). The Palestinian people were very friendly and it was a true privilege to see the 'other side' of the wall. The tour itinerary was good too, taking in the main sights of Bethlehem.

We covered everything on the itinerary and more. We were able to try local foods and drinks. We also stopped to see some of Banksy's famous murals, which was great. A great way to spend the day!
