Our Bethlehem, Dead Sea, Jericho, and Jordan River Tour is available twice every week starting from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, visiting four of the region’s most interesting destinations. We start the day with a glimpse at the new Bethlehem, passing through the famous Banksy hotel for a short photo stop (time permitting). After that, there will be a short visit to a local artisanal shop which will include a tea\coffee break and a presentation about the local crafts. After that we will continue to a guided tour of the Church of Nativity, followed by a short walk through the streets of the old city and a visit to the Milk Grotto. Leaving Bethlehem, you’ll descend to the lowest region on Earth, towards the city of Jericho, the oldest in the world. Ascend via cable car to marvel at the spectacular view of the lush oasis and enjoy a guided tour of the Mount of Temptations monastery. A short stop at the Gallery of Temptations will give you the opportunity to sample local dates, halva and other delicacies. Next, head to Qasr al Yahud Baptismal Site, where according to tradition, Jesus was baptized. Finally, visit the Dead Sea, where you’ll enjoy the facilities of the beach and have the opportunity to float in the waters, immerse in the muds, and enjoy the year round climate that makes this region so special.
