Why we chose this tour

If you dream of walking the way of Jesus, our Historical Bethlehem, Jericho and Jordan River tour is for you. Perfect for both the history fanatic and the Christian pilgrim, our tour brings the stories of the bible to life by taking you to the core holy sites of Christianity including the Church of the Nativity and Qasr el Yahud, Jesus’s baptism site.


On our Historical Bethlehem, Jericho and  Jordan River Tour, you will take a step back in history and visit some of the most essential cities and sites in Christianity. You will start the day in the holy city of Bethlehem, Jesus’s birthplace. You will pass by Banksy’s famous Walled Off Hotel where, time permitting, you’ll have a chance to stop and photograph the artist’s controversial work. You will visit a local artisanal gift shop where you will enjoy tea and coffee and learn about the local crafts in a fascinating presentation. Following the visit, you will take a guided tour of the Church of the Nativity, where Jesus is believed to have been born. You’ll visit the Chapel of the Milk Grotto, another sacred Christian site.

Leaving Bethlehem, you will continue to the oldest and lowest city on earth, Jericho. You will ascend by cable car to take in sweeping views of the scenery and enjoy a guided tour of the Mount of Temptations monastery, an ancient Greek Orthodox monastery. A stop at the Gallery of Temptations will allow you to sample local delicacies like sweet dates and sesame halva. Finally, you’ll make your way to Qasr el Yahud along the Jordan River, where Jesus is believed to have been baptized. Our Historical Bethlehem, Jericho and  Jordan River Tour tour offers a convenient way to visit all of these religious sites in one day without hassle.
