You will meet your driver at the Abraham Hostel Jerusalem lobby or the Carta Parking Lot (Jaffa Gate) upon request. You will relax in the air-conditioned shuttle on your way to an enriching half-day tour in the holy city of Bethlehem. You will arrive at your first destination, the sacred Church of the Nativity, where you’ll meet your guide, a West Bank local and expert. You will explore the birthplace of Jesus and one of the oldest churches in the world.
You will then take a short walk to the Grotto of the Lady Mary, a large underground cave with a Franciscan chapel built above it. Immerse yourself in the site where it is believed that Mary and Joseph took Jesus and sought refuge from King Herod before fleeing to Egypt.
Shepherd's Fields on the outskirts of Bethlehem will be next on the itinerary, a popular pilgrimage site where you’ll see a number of beautiful shrines and chapels. After an exciting morning exploring the highlights of Bethlehem, the shuttle will await you for your ride back to Jerusalem, with drop-off at Abraham Hostel Jerusalem.
