    Almost perfect

    I really enjoyed the tour. Good guide with a wide knowledge. A lot of valuable and interesting information - both about main attractions in Betlehem, as well as some socio-political context. The only one thing was missing, was a bit more free time in the city. A 30 minutes longer free time and it would be perfect.

    The guide is very good and the visit to Bethlehem is beautiful, in particular the basilica of the nativity, minus the cave of the holy milk. Precious descriptions of the guide on the situation of the Arab-Christian community of Bethlehem and Palestine
