Descubra los orígenes de diferentes religiones y culturas en esta asombrosa excursión de un día a Jerusalén y Belén. Estas antiguas ciudades de Tierra Santa le aportarán una fascinante mezcla de gente, visiones e historias, lo que la convierte en una excursión de día obligada en Israel.
If you are looking to book a tour of Jerusalem and Bethlehem I recommend that you request Yuval Bigio as your tour guide. He is multilingual and very knowledgeable about the sites that we toured and has a very good sense of humor.
This was supposed to be an English speaking tour but was actually a combination English and Spanish tour which made every explanation take longer. Our guide in Jerusalem was knowledgeable but not sympatico. Nevertheless, we saw all the Jerusalem sites in a very large group of more than 40. The Bethlehem part was very disappointing since it was Sunday and the church was busy so that we could not go into the caverns below. I do not think this tour should be scheduled on Sunday. The problems were that the tour group was too large and that the scheduling on Sunday was poor for the Bethlehem part.
We had an amazing experience on this day tour. Our tour guide Norbert was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The bus was very clean and comfortable. I would definitely use Viator for any future tours and highly recommend!
Our tour guide was horrible. she was scattered and rushed us through everything. One of the people in the group had been to Israel before and he was extremely unhappy with the information she gave us. there were about twelve people on the tour altogether and no happy faces. do not recommend.
I wouldn't wish this trip on my worst enemy. From the beginning, I knew it wasn't going to be great. We got picked up promptly at 8:30am, as promised. However, it took AN HOUR to get everyone in the correct vans and the tour to start. From there it felt very rushed. The guide was giving us information about things very obvious to anybody who knew anything religious I grew up going to church every week but would not say I know much about the bible. However, I pretty much knew most of what she went into detail about - and the things she did not explain when asked about I know the story, but we don't have time. We also back tracked a lot which she explained was for good reason but to me it was more of an annoyance. Lunch was not explained well so us when we got there and were rushed around trying to eat quickly to go. Our guide explained the entire menu to us - but the workers told us we had only 3 options to choose from. We went to 2 different gift shops and many of the people on the tour thought we HAD to purchase something from these stores. Not many people actually wanted to buy anything and I am very upset we spent about 30-45 minutes in the 2 gift shops but only had 15 minutes to tour a church. We also lost 3 of the people from our tour so that look a lot of time to find them. And then it was never explained well but 4 people in the tour just left after lunch and didn't go to Bethlehem with us. Not sure why?? THEN, as if it could get any better, we went to Bethlehem. When we arrived, we were told we were going in different vans than the one we had used all day? Our tour guide didn't go with us - but we got a new tour guide? We also all couldn't fit in one van so we went in two? With two new drivers? None of this was explained why. We went to the oldest church in the world but again - rushed through. He said he wanted to show us other things but it was closed so no. And we didn't even get to see where Jesus was born because it would take to long. By the end of the tour most all seemed annoyed. I am very confused about it still. It was not organized at all and a waste of my day. And money. DO NOT TAKE THIS TOUR.
Jerusalem tour difficult due to crowd sizes. No headsets, guide hard to hear. Bethlehem bad because we were held at a gift shop for at least 30 min. Finally went to manger site, had to look at it through a pinhole because it was too busy, we were rushed through that. Awkward situation. Guide there very difficult to hear. Had a good time just walking around on our own today, saw lots more on our own.
