Good lineup of places to see and good information from the tour guide. But the time should be extended slightly to allow more time to enjoy the stations of cross, more time to to see and less time in shops for souvenirs. I wouldn’t have mind to pay a little more to spend more time but within one day still.

The tour was very well organized and conducted from start to finish. We were able to visit all the sights that were planned and the obligatory stop at the souvenir shop was fine at 15 minutes, especially since the shop employees were not pushy at all but very polite and reserved. for lunch there was a choice of three dishes, all of which were reasonably priced and very tasty. we had two different guides because the Israeli guide is not approved for the Palestinian area. Both George and and especially Dotan were outstanding!

Overall good trip. We covered a lot in just a few hours, however we would have preferred to have a little more time to explore both Jerusalem and Bethlehem. Our guide was very skilled with good knowledge of the various sites. We enjoyed the historical facts and stories he provided, but for some of the stops seemed to drag out a bit, eating into the already limited time we had to actually enjoy the sites. Would recommend the trip - you will see the most important sites, but be mindful that you will not have time to explore on your own.
