Full description
What better place to celebrate Christmas than in the holy land itself? Begin the tour with a beautiful view over the entire city of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, and then enjoy a short drive around the Old City walls, taking in the lovely panoramas of the Kidron Valley and the Garden of Gethsemane. Then enter the Old City itself, and embark on a short walking tour through the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Continue the tour with a drive to the legendary city of Bethlehem, stopping briefly at Evil Mountain for an illuminated panoramic view of the city. Once in Bethlehem, visit some authentic Christmas souvenir stores for light refreshments, and then sit down to a festive dinner at a local Bethlehem restaurant. Once you're finished, make your way to Mangers Square to view the Mass service on outdoor screens.

This experience was something out of the ordinary. Our first guide Amir was absolutely fantastic. He told us not only about Jerusalem and Bethlehem, but also about Israel where we got to learn a lot. When we come to Bethlehem there will be a new guide who comes and has a different approach. Unfortunately, he had not eaten all day and it was noticeable when he got into a dispute with one of the participants. Very unprofessional unfortunately. The exclusive 3 course dinner was the biggest disappointment. We come to a restaurant that is perfectly located in Bethlehem and very close to the large church where the midnight mass was. It was like coming to school again where we had to go with the tray and pick up food that was really nothing further at all but rather bad. The experience overall is very positive and this is largely due to the guide Amir who is by far the best guide I have ever met and I have met many. If you have the chance, you should definitely go on this trip.
