very nice and interesting tour!!
May 2021 • Friends
Amazing!! Elias was a very good and nice tour guide. Me and my two friends went on the tour in early 2021 while the country was still closed to tourists. Even though it was just a small group of 3 of us, Elias still arranged all of the transportation to/from Bethlehem and gave us the tour despite it not being enough for him to make a real profit. He was super accommodating and gave us snacks, and little souvenirs. The tour was very interesting and informative. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to tour Bethlehem.

Awesome tour with great guides
Feb 2020
This was one of the best tours I have been on in any city. The tour guides were very knowledgeable, professional and did a great job explaining the history of all the sites visited. We were picked up and dropped off in Tel Aviv, which worked out very well. At first I was a bit hesitant about taking a tour in the Palestinian territory, but soon found that the people of Bethlehem were very warm and welcoming and I very much enjoyed my visit. This tour is a must if you are in the area!

I thought the tour guides were engaging and enjoy what they do. I was happy to meet them and I hope to visit again soon. I liked that we got to go outside the van and explore the town a bit. Thank you!

Nice trip
Feb 2020
First of all book your trip in advance from your travel agent, Expedia or trip advisor because it’s cheaper. You are travelling to the Palestinian territory so you need a passport. We were a bit reluctant to go on this trip but it was a very safe trip, people were very nice in Bethlehem, very welcoming. The trip is very interesting for religious or non religious people. Our guide in Bethlehem was Christian which was surprising. The only gripe was that we had to change about 4 coaches to get there and back but it was still worth it.

Feb 2020 • Couples
This tour is one of my favorites! Boaz (George) was incredible. He did an amazing job showing us Bethlehem and making the Bible come to life and offering amazing bread and traditional treats along with it. My husband and I will never forget it. The other two guides where also amazing, the one that showed us the Nativity church sang the Lord's prayer in Aramaic, which was the language that our Lord Jesus Christ spoke! That was truly amazing. Over all an incredible experience. THANK YOU ALL!

We are so glad that we booked this trip and saw many important places of Bethlehem! Boas was our gentle tour guide - he did an excellent job and gave us a good insight on Palestinian issues, beside explaining the locations! If we were his flock, he'd be a good shepherd :)

Great way to explore Bethlehem!
Jan 2020
We really enjoyed the half day that we spent with the team at Elijah Tours & Travel! Different parts of the tour were led by different guides and all of them were very friendly and provided good information. It was very convenient to depart from the David Citadel Hotel. Bethlehem is only about 30 minutes away and the tour covers all the important sites that are there. Be warned, Bethlehem is quite commercial, but as a Christian I couldn't imagine being in Jerusalem and not take the time to see the birthplace of Jesus. Overall it was worth it. This tour includes a nice break at a cafe and a free falafel at the end of the trip that was the best I've ever had. The stop at the olive wood factory provided a nice opportunity to buy some souvenirs and support the local economy. There was no pressure to buy which we appreciated after the hounding that we experienced in the Old City. This approach actually made us want to spend our money.
