All quarters revolve around Manger Square.

Important - The tour doesn't include any obligatory stop at local souvenir shops. Our guide will be happy to take you through a local recommended shop but only if this is what you want.

Our next stop will be the Milk Grotto, which is dubbed a sacred site because tradition serves that the Holy Family took refuge here before their journey into Egypt. According to tradition the scraping from the stones are known to enhance the quality of a mothers milk and therefore boost fertility.

Next we will visit Shepherd's Fields, which is located in an old Christian village known as Beit Sahour. It is believed that the shepherds who lived there in ancient times saw the Star of Nativity. In Beit Sahour we will launch at a wonderful restaurant that serves excellent local food and offers beautiful relaxed view of the Judean Dessert (Optional, not included in the price of the tour). 

After lunch we will visit the Separation Wall, which separates Israel and the Palestinian territories and see some of the famous graffiti done by local and international artists. You will learn first hand about the current political and day to day hardships of life in the West Bank yet without getting political - this is not a political tour. 

Our next stop in our tour is Herodion, one of King Herod's palaces and where his tomb was finally discovered. Here, King Herod's architects sculpted the mountain itself to make it symmetrical to the Palace. From the top of the fortress you can enjoy the stunning views of the Judean Desert, the Dead Sea, Bethlehem, and the suburbs of Jerusalem. You will continue to Wadi Kelt, which is a Valley that stretches all the way from Jerusalem and ends in Jericho. It is home to the oldest Jewish Synagogue in the world and the pictorial Greek Orthodox Monastery of Saint George.

The tour will end in Jericho, one of the most ancient cities in the world which is famous for the biblical epic siege that the sons of Israel have imposed upon it.  The city is filled with ancient and current Jewish, Christian, and Muslim heritage.
