    Seems like this service was subcontracted to Eliat tours I believe, and we glad it happen because we ended up having a great local touch experience with the tour guys. Cetri, I believe is his name was great and knowledgeable and with a lot of patience. Great way to see Bethehelem and Jericó.

    The tour was really amazing! Boaz is a great guide, patient and friendly. Always giving us something to try and experience the city. He was with us during the morning part and gave us a lot of information - religious, political and cultural. During the afternoon, the guide was good too, nothing to complain about. Fortunately, we got to see the grotto at nativity church and did everything as planned.

    An interesting trip with nice and well-oriented guides in Bethlehem. However, the second part, a ride to Jericho and a few points along the way - slightly underdeveloped. The driver hardly spoke English and no additional questions could be asked. It was also slightly chaotic when changing means of transport. However, overall - I assess it well :)
