The tour was excellent, as I really wanted to see the Greek Orthodox monastery - I did not like the first guide injecting one sided politics into the tour - many were uncomfortable, otherwise the tour was very good.

Can't give anything but a great review for this tour. I changed the plan slightly with the help of the guides, who were helpful, knowledgeable, funny and inclusive.
I've read reviews of some tours being too political etc. But I and our group found Boaz very open but respectful and not political, in fact spiritually enlightening would be a good explanation, he qouted from Bilble(s), Koran and Torah. We even got the Our Father recited in Aramaic, the lanuage Jesus would have spoken.
The amount of food tasting, sweets and coffee supplied, we were brought into Bethlehem with open arms!!
One of the childern of a really charming family on the tour, kept calling it "the best tour ever", they had done several tours already this week!!
We were immersed in the history and life in Bethlehem from long before Jesus was born to the modern day!
Jerico and the baptismal site were items in there own right, things and places I wanted to experience, but we were spoilt in Bethlehem, even getting into 2 grotto's; the Church of the Nativity and the grotto in St Catherine's where St Jerome translated the bibles and was originally buried.
We were very lucky, most of the time you don't get into one grotto with the crowds or booked for masses, to get the 2 was special.
No more to say, except thanks Boaz, Moses and Elijah Tours for your hospitality and sharing your knowledge of your iconic city!!
