Go back in time to visit several ancient sites on this 10-hour small-group tour to Bethlehem and Jericho from Tel Aviv. Take in amazing historical highlights, such as the birthplace of Jesus Christ and Zacchaeus’ sycamore fig.

Your journey begins, after getting picked up at your central Tel Aviv hotel, with a drive through the Judean Desert toward Jericho. Along the way, you will pass the Good Samaritan Inn before stopping at sea level to enjoy the magnificent scenery.

Arrive in Jericho, one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world, and admire the lush greenery that is in stark contrast to the dry desert you have passed through. Visit Zacchaeus’ sycamore fig, one of the city’s most famed attractions, before moving on to an overview of the Mount of Temptation, where Jesus was tempted by the Devil.

Your time in Jericho also includes a visit to Tel e-Sultan, an archaeological site that has uncovered more than 20 settlements dating back thousands of years.

Venture next to Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus Christ. Your excursion takes in the Church of the Nativity and Manger Square. On the way out of the city, you will see the numerous shepherd fields that surround Bethlehem. 

Please note: Cable car passage up the Mount of Temptation in Jericho is not included in the cost of this tour.
