We booked on to do the half day Bethlehem tour from Tel Aviv with a drop off in Jerusalem. We were picked up on time from our pick up location and taken to Jerusalem where we then joined a larger group on a coach. Elias delivered our tour and it was incredibly insightful and pack full of fascinating information! Not only this, but Elias was absolutely hilarious and without him, the tour would not have been the same! Thought the tour, Elias stopped and treated us to falafel and Arabic coffee, both of which were delicious! Elias, you’re incredible at what you do and are an incredibly friendly and funny guy. Thank you for such a fantastic and informative tour, we will definitely be recommending to friends and family!
