Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus is a top destination for Christians visiting Israel. Bethlehem Tours provide you with a safe, convenient and stress-free way to enjoy this holy site. Bethlehem tours take you to Manger Square; the Church of the Nativity, built around the Holy Grotto where the nativity occurred and St Catherine’s Church. Some Bethlehem tours include the Milk Grotto where Mary nursed Jesus or Shepherds’ Field where shepherds watched their flocks on the first Christmas Eve. If you have limited time you can fit in a half day tour to Bethlehem. Other one day Bethlehem tour options combine Bethlehem with nearby destinations like Jerusalem or Jericho. There are multi-day tours that include Bethlehem in their itineraries along with other attractions across the country. If you are in Israel during the Christmas season join a tour that includes Midnight Mass in Bethlehem’s Manger Square. There are ship-to-shore Bethlehem tours for cruise passengers arriving in Ashdod or Haifa and a two day tour to Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Dead Sea.
Bethlehem tours include a pick-up and drop-off service at convenient locations in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Natanya and Herzliya. There is air-conditioned transportation. Bethlehem is located in an area under Palestinian Authority so a passport is required to cross the border post. You will have the assistance of our tour representative when crossing the border and the tour is subject to Palestinian Authority regulations. Once across the border you will be met by a professional local tour guide.
