This tour, planned at the last minute for us, far surpassed our expectations. We got to see almost every site we had hoped to see, and our tour guides were amazing - knowledge and experience made the entire tour fun and educational at the same time. I would totally recommend this tour to anyone who has never been to Israel & Jordan or who wants to learn about the most important cities and places of the country.

Jerusalem Bethlehem in one day

★★★★★

It was a one day tour. I was picked up promptly and driven to the meeting place, in Tel-Aviv. We were all then boarded our respective tour busses. I enjoyed the day, very much. Our tour guid/driver, was very knowledgeable and kind. He explained everything to us, properly. We visited the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, with George, our local guide there. He was very good. The rest of the day, was lunch in a nice place in Jerusalem and walk through the Christian quarter, visiting the church of Sepulchre, where Jesus died, as the legend tells us. No complaints, I was picked up and drivers to be pick up place, promptly. Excellent one day trip.

Our expectations were really exceeded by this tour. We started with 7 days in the amazing Tel Aviv. Our hotel was located 5 minutes walk from the ocean. The atmosphere was so awesome and the weather was great for a swim in the warm Mediterranean water. Our experience was really jaw-dropping and we will definitely be using Israel Compass Tours again in the future 🙂
