What To Expect - Bethlehem Day Tour

This one-of-a-kind Bethlehem Full Day Tour will take you from Jerusalem or Tel Aviv through the Judean Hills towards Bethlehem - The same route Mary and Joseph took when they journeyed to Bethlehem over two millennia ago. The beautiful, biblical landscape will charm you, as we reach the first stop: The Palestinian Separation Wall with its world-renowned graffiti, done by Bansky himself. You’ll see his cutting-edge creations, which convey ant-war messages in his unique, humorous style. 

After a quick stop at the Banksy Shop, we’ll continue our voyage and reach the biblical Shepherds' Field - where the angel appeared to the Shepherds (Luke 2:8-14) and announced the birth of the Savior, Christ the Lord, in nearby Bethlehem. This site is marked by the lovely Chapel of the Angels, designed by Antonio Barluzzi - and its beautiful murals will provide you with great photo ops. 

Next, we’ll head out for Bethlehem itself, and after a short drive, we’ll reach the Milk Grotto; this sacred landmark is where Mary nursed baby Jesus while hiding after the nativity. After learning more about this place’s special traditions and cultural impact, you’ll be taken to Manger Square, a holy nexus for Christians from all over the world. 

Time permitting, we’ll walk around the area and even visit the Bethlehem Market with its loud, colorful atmosphere - before reaching our main attraction: The unforgettable Church of the Nativity, marking the blessed birthplace of Jesus. 

The Church complex is kept by separate Catholic, Greek, and Armenian castodies, and while other tours are bounded by local availability, your group will go in and experience this holy site to its fullest: you’ll see the Grotto in the Grotto of the Nativity with its famous star on the marble floor, and sanctuary lamps hanging above; you’ll see the exquisite interior, covered in gold-hued mosaics; And enter the Chapel of the Kings at the northern transept of the church, where the Three Wise Men came to witness the nativity (Matthew 2:1-12).

After learning more about the site’s surprising history, you’ll head back to the spacious tour bus, and drive back to the departure point while enjoying more of the area’s amazing views - A perfect ending for a perfect guided Bethlehem tour!
