Day 1 Bethlehem - Jericho(18530 km)

Guests will be picked up for this tour from their hotels in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. We will make our way to Bethlehem, stopping first in Manger Square where we will visit the Church of the Nativity, one of the world's oldest still-functioning churches, which is compromised of two churches, the Basilica of the Nativity and the Church of St. Catherine, as well as a crypt, called the Grotto of the Nativity, the cave where it is believed that Jesus was born. The exact spot where he is said to have been born is marked with a 14-pont star on the floor.

Afterward, we will visit the nearby Milk Grotto, where Mary nursed her newborn son. A Franciscan chapel is built above the cave. On our way out of Bethlehem, we will stop to take in a view of the Shepherds' Fields and the small church there.

We will then depart towards the Judean Desert, stopping en route to visit the Inn of the Good Samaritan, a 19th century Ottoman Turkish building that is now a large mosaic museum. From here, we will have a breathtaking view of landscape of the desert below us. We will then proceed to Jericho, where we will visit the Zacchaeus Sycamore, an old tree that has Biblical significance.

We will then visit the Mound of Ancient Jericho, where 25 settlements have been excavated, the earliest dating as far back as 9000 BCE, offering a unique picture of the different historical and pre-historical settlements of the region. Leaving Jericho, we will return to Jerusalem, and guests will be dropped off at their hotels. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off.
