Our Bethlehem, Jericho, and Jordan River Tour is available three times per every week starting from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, visiting three of the region’s most interesting destinations. We start the day with a glimpse at the new Bethlehem, passing through the famous Banksy hotel for a short photo stop (time permitting). After that, you’ll visit a local artisanal shop, which will include a tea/coffee break and a presentation about local Palestinian crafts. Continue to a guided tour of the Church of Nativity, the very site where Jesus Christ was born, followed by a short walk through the streets of the old city.

Leaving Bethlehem, you’ll descend to the lowest region on Earth: towards the city of Jericho, which is thought to be the oldest city in the world. Ascend via cable car to marvel at the spectacular view of the lush oasis and enjoy a guided tour of the beautiful Mount of Temptations monastery. A short stop at the Gallery of Temptations will give you the opportunity to sample local dates, halva, and other delicacies. Next, head to Qasr al-Yahud Baptismal Site, where according to tradition, Jesus was baptized. Our one day tour of Bethlehem, Jericho, and the Jordan River is an absolute must for any traveler who wants to explore the rich history and beautiful landscapes of the Holy Land!
