This was a great tour. They picked us up in an tour bus with A/C and usb ports to charge your phone on the bus. We had lunch at a buffet place which was nice and they give you plenty of time to buy souvenirs when you are in Bethlehem. My tour guide, Saul, is the best! Very informative and has a very outgoing positive attitude that made the tour that much better.
Wonderful time
