Our unique Christmas Eve in Bethlehem Tour for Midnight Mass also visits Jerusalem on the eve of the day when it all began. Available from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Herzliya on December 24, this holiday tour takes you through the Christian religious sites in two notable locations – Jerusalem and Bethlehem, two important cities connected to Jesus’ birth. The tour begins Christmas Eve day in Jerusalem, entering the Old City, where you will wind your way through the narrow streets to arrive at Via Dolorosa and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. After visiting these important and meaningful sites, you will exit the Old City and begin your drive through the new city of Jerusalem, passing the old Bethlehem Road en route.

Entering Bethlehem, you will begin to feel the Christmas spirit come to life as the city is decorated with lights and banners, and festive vibes fill the air. We will take you to enjoy a holiday dinner followed by free time in Manger Square to enjoy the festivities and view the Midnight Mass. Following Mass, you will be transported back to Tel Aviv, Herzliya, and Jerusalem after a special Christmas Eve in Bethlehem and Jerusalem, with unforgettable memories and a Christmas experience unlike anything else.

Our unique and memorable tour, available only once a year with guaranteed departures. Our tour price includes all transportation, guiding and a festive dinner. Unforgettable memories are guaranteed on this once in a lifetime tour experience. Looking for something to do Christmas day? Our tour pairs perfectly with our Christmas Day in and around Jerusalem tour – book each tour individually, or together as a package experience, including hotel. Spaces are limited so book early to be sure you won’t miss out!
