Amazing experience of true Middle East hospitality. Great and very well prepared guide with huge historical knowledge who helped to understand all the points which we were passing on our way. Also special thanks should go to the drivers who were very kind, talkative and straightforward in sharing insight of the West Bank reality of daily life. Highly recommended!

We started at 1pm which was a great time, not so early for our little kids. We explored the Shepard's field, cave, church of nativity and went inside underneath the church where Jesus was born, milk grotto. Tons of people as we went on Christmas day, the guide lost 2 people but quickly found them and arranged for them to meet at the church from the Shepard's field. The only thing I think they can do is make a discount for children. We had a 2 year and 6 year old and they paid full adult prices.

Tour guides were amazing. Elijah Tours taught us so much about things that happened in biblical times and tied it to the way they live in Bethlehem today. They were generous, kind and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. It may have been the best tour I’ve ever been on, and I’ve used Get your Guide in many countries. I was a little scared to go to the West Bank, but they were in constant communication with people before our next stop to make sure everything was safe. I don’t remember our 2 guides names, but it was on December 24th, and they were fabulous.
