Bethlehem Jericho Dead Sea & Jordan River Tour from Jerusalem

    What to Expect
    Make your way to a central location in Jerusalem for 7:30am departure to Bethlehem, the historic birthplace of Jesus. Stop for a guided tour of the city—starting early means that you’ll get to visit the main sites before the busiest times of day—and see the Church of the Nativity, a UNESCO-listed church originally commissioned by Constantine the Great.

    Continue to Jericho, the lowest city on Earth, and take a guided tour of the city and the Mount of Temptation, the traditional site of Jesus' temptation in the Book of Matthew. From Jericho drive to Qumran, where the Dead Sea scrolls were discovered between 1946 and 1956. The visit to the Dead Sea scrolls site is optional and at your own expense, and you’ll also have free time to buy lunch onsite.

    The final stop of the day is at a private beach by the Dead Sea: try floating in the super-dense water, cover yourself in therapeutic mud, and enjoy the desert sunshine by the shore. After your time on the beach, make the return trip to Jerusalem, where this tour concludes at 4:30pm.

    Our guide George Rabe was great. He gave us a lot of free time to take pictures and he gave lots of useful information. It was fantastic tour because we were not forced to enter shops as many tours does.

    Thank you so much, Hardeep G, for your review! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your tour visiting Bethlehem, Jericho, the Dead Sea and the Jordan River. It sounds like it was a meaningful and informative experience, especially while in the West Bank area. Thanks for your note about the heat at the Dead Sea, while we encourage everyone to bring flip flops especially during the summer months when the sand and salt at the Dead Sea are very hot. In any case, we're glad you enjoyed the experience and thank you for choosing the services of Tourist Israel.

    Wonderful Tour! You get to see some of the most important holy sites in Israel and Palestine and also get to see the wall separating Palestine and Israel and the political tagging on it that speaks against walls and separating an "us" from a "them." It's a great way to immerse
