Bethlehem and Jericho Day Trip

  • 9 hours
  • Hotel pick up

Visit some of the most fascinating Biblical sites on this trip to Bethlehem, the birth city of Jesus, and Jericho, the oldest city in the world.

Itinerary

After collecting you from your hotel around 9 am, we will start our journey to the birth city of Jesus.

Our first stop in Bethlehem will be the tomb of the matriarch Rachel, where traditionally many Jewish women come to pray for fertility or a trouble-free birth.

We then visit Manger Square which is home to the Basilica of the Nativity and the grotto which the Bible describes as the birthplace of Jesus. Before leaving Bethlehem behind, we will climb up to Shepherd's Field, the place from where the pastors set off to honor the nativity of Jesus.

We will continue traveling through the Judean desert until we reach the Inn of the Good Samaritan, the scene of the celebrated parable of Jesus.

Our next stop is Jericho, considered the oldest city in the world. Here we will encounter the sycamore tree from which Zacchaeus witnessed Christ passing through the city.

To finish the visit in the best possible way possible, we will ride the cable car (not included) to the top of the Mount of Temptation where you will be rewarded with impressive views of Jericho, and the desert landscapes that surround the city.

After 9 hours exploring the essential places in Bethlehem and Jericho, we will return to Jerusalem and drop you back at your hotel at the end of the evening.
