Overview

Spend a day exploring the historic cities of Jericho and Bethlehem on this 8-hour tour from Jerusalem. Drive through the Judean Desert en route to Jericho. Enjoy the surrounding scenery as you head to Jericho, the oldest city in the world. After touring the city, you will head to Bethlehem, and view the shepherds' fields.

Get picked up at your central Jerusalem hotel and begin the trip toward Jericho, driving through the Judean Desert. Along the way you pass the Good Samaritan Inn before stopping at sea level to take in the magnificent scenery that surrounds you.

Arrive in Jericho – considered to be one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world – and admire the lush greenery that is in stark contrast to the dry desert you have passed through. Visit Zacchaeus’ sycamore fig, one of the city’s most famed attractions, before moving for an overview of the Mount of Temptation, where Jesus was tempted by the Devil. Your time in Jericho also includes a visit to Tel e-Sultan, an archaeological site that has uncovered more than 20 settlements dating back thousands of years.

Leaving Jericho behind, venture to Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus Christ and the childhood home of David. Your excursion takes you to the Church of the Nativity and Manger Square. Leaving the city, you observe the numerous shepherd fields that surround Bethlehem before making the journey back to Jerusalem.
