We had an initial admin glitch, so I would recommend dropping them an email the day before to confirm your name & attendance for the tour (we were missing on the list which caused a bit of confusion on the bus). That was quickly resolved and our day began.

We went to the Bethlehem, Jordan River and Jericho tour which was awesome. So much to take on board, so much to see/hear/do. our guides were phenomenal - from sneaking us in to places, to giving us local food to try like fresh dates, the best falafel I have EVER eaten, hummus, breads.....

I highly recommend buying from the tourist shop - they were the best prices we came across through our whole trip and I really wish I’d bought more of the Dead Sea products (my skin felt lovely after)

This tour made me feel like we got to see, hear and taste local life. What more could you ask for from a tour!?! Thanks Elijah tours!

Elijah Tours was very responsive when I asked for information prior to booking this tour. My main goal was to take the cable car in Jericho to visit the Mount of Temptation monastery, and Elijah Tours delivered on that. That was a great experience! The tour was well organized in the sense that the various drivers necessary were punctual and well coordinated. We were a bit surprised that the Jericho part was not guided (unlike the Bethlehem part where we did have a guide), but we had a nice driver who took good care of us. We took this tour on March 9, 2022, shortly after Israel reopened for tourists, and there were only 6 people on this tour, and only the two of us did the Jericho part, so we were riding around in a private car with just our driver. It was a bit wild, but it worked!

We used Bein Harim tours, and the guide was great. He spoke English, Spanish, French, Hebrew, and Arabic. The difference between Bein Harim and a different tour company is that we only changed vehicles once, and that was in Jerusalem. Once in that vehicle, we drove to Bethlehem, and subsequently Jericho without having to change vehicles. One other company told me we would have to change in Jerusalem, and at Bethlehem make a short walk across the security zone and board a difference vehicle in Bethlehem. We'd have to reverse that once leaving Bethlehem. We did not have to do that, and we did NOT want to do that. Our driver (different than our guide) drove us the rest of the day in that vehicle until returning to Jerusalem. Bethlehem was a busier city than Jericho, though not nearly like the crowds in Jerusalem. For Jericho, we watched a 10 minute movie prior to going into the ruins. The ruins in Jericho are rustic, and archaeology remains in progress. It is easy to see the different layers of discovery, the different layers of civilization. The tower is easily seen. You are permitted to walk up to the ruins and spend time thinking about Jericho being one of the first communal gatherings of the human race.

This review is a bit delayed (sorry!) but this tour was great. Lots of fun and the pace was good. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and I really enjoyed all the stories they told.

In the morning we had Moses. Then in the afternoon there was a local guide from Bethlehem called Boaz (the teacher)... he's an archeologist. Both of them were wonderful.

We had 3 different tour guides - each an expert in their area, and all were very good. But Rami Ahmed, and Elias Boaz were both truly excellent. They had lots of energy and made a pouring wet day still fun and interesting. Thanks for a great, interesting and enjoyable day!

I was very impressed with this tour! The tour included pick up from Jerusalem, visiting a park, Bethlehem, Jericho, and us forcing a stop at the coffee shop Stars & Bucks. It was incredible to see so many historic sites. Our tour guide was Aboud (sp) who did such a fantastic job. He explained to my friends and I all the different places we toured through, the relevance, and assured we were guided through the line in order (there were some pushy other tour operators in the area). You get to see where Jesus was born in Bethlehem as well as a trip down to Jericho, river of Jordan which is the oldest city in the world. I believe our drivers name was Nadir who was also fantastic and played great tunes in the car rides. Be sure to stop at Stars & Bucks too while in Bethlehem! It wasn't part of the tour but my friends and I requested a quick jaunt in to see the knock off coffee shop which was cute. Hopefully you will get Aboud and Nadir as your guide and driver. They were great.

As an evangelical christian, I definitely recommend this tour. It makes for a long day, but we saw many incredible biblical sites and Boaz had tons of insight to share. We learned a ton!

Let me start with the positive - Boaz was awesome tour guide and his helpers in Bethlehem were friendly, informative, and helpful. They answered questions and were VERY gracious, providing different breads from local bakeries to the entire group. He was also incredibly patient with a couple of the children who were also parrt of the group.
Unfortunately, the driver picking up a couple of us from TLV, while safe, didn't understand us and provided no information. Similarly, the return trip was relegated to a taxi. The Jericho component of the trip was SELF-GUIDED. I would recommend that this component be substituted for soemthing else more worth your while. The Elijah spring was interesting, but the mechanical pump made me question anything regarding authenticity.

Thank you, my friend, for taking time and leaving a review, even though we believe it is not fair, it is Clearly Advertised that Jericho is Self Guided - the Tel Aviv is just transportation and Also Jericho is Self Guided Driver only as it says on the Itinairy Online, We are very happy you had a great time in Bethlehem, but the things you are not happy with are not included with this Tour Itinairy so we can't do much about it, We finished Everything as the Itianairy state and more - have great day wish you all the best

My dad and I had an amazing experience with this tour. Everything happened the way expected, with no hiccups. Our tour guide (which I cannot recall his name, just remember that he mover recently from the US to Israel), was amazing. He took time to share his experience and also to present all the uniqueness within Israel.

This was an extraordinary tour, brilliant guides, Unbelievable hospitality, very informative and I could follow only in superlatives. Couldn’t recommend them enough. The majority of the group went only for the Betlehem tour, only 4 of us wanted to go to the Dead Sea, so they took us only with a private car. Our second guide took us to places that were off schedule but he thought were beautiful and he was so right!! One of the most memorable days 🙏🏻
