Tour description

Bethlehem, a hidden gem of a city thriving over several hills south of Jerusalem. The construction of this majestic city goes back to 2000 BCE, and it has since held a pivotal and crucial position during the course of history.
During our humble tour, we will not only voyage through space, but also through time, from the mighty ruins of the Canaanites, through the birth of Jesus Christ, to a mixture of cultures and religions and a struggle towards awaited peace.

🟢First: we will visit the highlight sites of the city;

  • The Nativity Church 
  • St. Catherine Church 
  • Alomary Mosque 
  • Milk Grotto Church

🟢Second: we will march through the captivating streets and alleys of the old city to experience a Talhami life;

  • Alnajme street 
  • Bethlehem flea market (optional)
  • Almadbase square (public market)
  • The old neighbourhood

🟠Third (optional): we will end our tour by experiencing local food the local way, standing before a beautiful view of Bethlehem;

  • Local falafel and hummus 
  • Traditional shawarma 
  • Nuts
  • Traditional tea over a beautiful view (our gift to you)
  • Palestinian pastries 

Note: during the tour, you may stop at any point (e.g. souvenir shop, local market, etc.) you prefer.
