Tour started 2 hours later than advertised time due to traffic and poor planning. The first site was missed as a result without a mention although we would have had time if the mandatory stops in the tacky religious tourist shops in both Jerusalem & Bethlehem had been dropped instead. Bethlehem was most disappointing. We went all the way there to go to the Church of the Nativity only to find it too overcrowded to visit the cave. Instead we wasted more time in an overpriced souvenir shop. We didn't even get to walk anywhere. The guide was ok from a knowledge viewpoint but the poor planning of the tour route had us stuck in traffic for over an hour when we could have walked the route and had much better views. I booked a walking tour the next day with a local company which was significant better organized and focused on walking rather than sitting in a mini bus to get from site to site. We saw everything plus more.

La visite de l'église de la nativité nous a imposé 2h15 de queue du au nombre impressionnant de visiteurs simultanés. Il y avait beaucoup trop de tours organisés qui se sont retrouvés au même moment pour la visite. Ce temps passé, a obligé notre guide de faire la visite la vieille ville de Jérusalem au pas de course. De plus demandé au guide d'assurer deux langues, anglais et français, prend également beaucoup trop de temps. Il faut proposer des tours avec une seule langue.
