Superb day organized by the agency Elijah Tours. We highly recommend. George and Amir were excellent guides providing a wealth of very interesting information. The mini bus was in perfect condition, the driver very careful and friendly. There is a lot to see and do, so the day is a bit rushed, but the different sites follow one another very well and you don't see the day go by. Lots of little touches offered during the day (coffee, baklava, falafel sandwich, small wooden crosses...). In short, an excellent moment in perspective!

In Bethlehem you have to be aware that there are long waiting times in the Church of the Nativity before you get to the Grotto of the Nativity. >>Outflow of mass tourism. If you wait there too long, you may not be able to visit the monastery in Jericho. It closes around 3:30 p.m. It all depends on the skill of the guide whether he can manage the whole program.

really enjoyed. The company was super punctual. requests.. they give us a script, a script of how the day will be, the order of stops, length of stay in each one.. and the guides were super polite, mastering the subject well. I liked it a lot, and I found the company very organized, the van we were in was super spacious and very comfortable, clean. nothing to complain. all very cool.
