Very educational and fun
Jan 2019 • Couples
So, to begin, expect to change vehicles many times due to entering PLO Authority controlled areas which Israeli drivers are not permitted to do. It's actually fun if you spend time talking to your drivers who are very willing to share their point of view (which is exactly the point, here both sides with AN OPEN MIND!)

Also, they do not explain on the description that the tram to the top of Jericho and lunch are not included in the price listed. It's $20 US per person if you are part of a group, which we were.

You get to see the sights listed but may have to wait in line depending on how busy it is.

Excellent views and panoramas!

Highly recommended.

Jericho was great
Overall the tour was ok. Jericho was by far the highlight. The views and history were amazing. Bethlehem did not live up to expectations. We had a different tour guide who, for such a large group, spoke too quietly so a number of us felt like we missed out on information. This part of the tour felt very rushed and we spent far too long in a souvenir shop too. Jericho saved the trip.

Very disorganized
The whole tour was disorganized from start to finish. I was switched from vehicle to vehicle all day long without being told what was going on. I had 8 different vehicles and 6 different leaders/guides. None of them bothered to tell us what was happening. They just kept saying "get in this car", "wait here, someone will pick you up". I got so frustrated by the end of the day that I was ready to go back to my hotel before the tour finished. I spent about 80% of the time being driven around and only about 20% of the time actually seeing any sights.

The tour guide in Jericho spent 10 minutes explaining to us all about the cable car to Mount Temptation: how long it takes, where it takes you, what you will see, the path to the monastery that you need to take etc. Then he took us to the ticket office and told us to wait for him. After 10 minutes of waiting, I asked him if we were going on the cable car, he said "no, get back on the bus, I'm taking another group". So why the heck did we waste 20 minutes for an activity that was not covered in our tour?!?

Do yourself a favor and use another tour company for this trip. It's not worth the money I paid.
