    I had an excellent tour with Zuluf. Due to tourism being low during COVID-19, Bethlehem just opened back up. I was extremely fortunate that I booked on a Thursday because no one else was on my tour but myself. I got to see so much and had the experience of being able to walk right in to some sights that typically take hours to see or limited times on how long you can spend there. Zuluf was extremely knowledgeable and filled me in on a lot of history. He also asked what I wanted him to focus on and I said whatever he could tell me. He also sent me photos from all the sights were taken. I highly recommend visiting Bethlehem with Elijah Tours.

    The half-day tour was the best investmest I made during my trip to Jerusalem! The tour covered the most essential places in Bethlehem and the tour guides as well as the driver did their best to offer an unforgettable experience. It needs to be said that due to Covid and a lack of other tourists, I received a very personalized tour, but I am sure that bigger groups get just as much out of it. Especially the Church of Nativity was an impressive place, for religious and non-religious people alike.

    Very enjoyable and knowledgeable guide. Gave plenty of context for the city, region, and history. Didn't feel like missing the grotto was a negative. Came away with much more understanding of the experience in the West Bank while also seeing important Christian sites. Highly recommend.

    A perfect half-day tour. The guides manage to cram a lot of interesting stuff about Bethlehem and the surrounds in the tour. We had three guides, each one versed in the area, the West bank and the Church of The Nativity. They also feed us well with local food. Highly recommended.

    Bethlehem is very charming. I’m definitely glad I made the trip. The tour started off with checking out some of the graffiti on the wall at the West Bank which I found very interesting. If you are into Banksy, you can check out some of his work. All of the guides were super friendly, informative and even funny! They were very patient and I didn’t feel rushed at places we stopped. There was enough time to have a little mooch around the area. Our group was very lucky in that the queues to view the spot where Jesus was born and the manger weren’t too long. So we were able to go in, see, touch the stone and take pictures. I don’t think this is usually part of the tour as the queues can be long. I did not have expectations of this going in, but felt very fortunate for the experience. You need not fear going hungry, even if you skip breakfast due to the early start. They provide many opportunities to sample local food including bread, baklava and falafel. I thought it was a great mix of visiting historical sights and getting to see the countryside and surrounding areas of Bethlehem. It was short, sweet and definitely a good way to spend half a day!

    This was by far the best tour I've ever been on. The guides were super lovely and kept giving us falafel, breads, sweets and we even got some lunch (which we didn't think was part of the tour!). The Palestinian people were very friendly and it was a true privilege to see the 'other side' of the wall. The tour itinerary was good too, taking in the main sights of Bethlehem.
