We already spent a few days in Israël, and this tour gave us a nuanced view of the country we visited and made us better understand this complex conflict that is so relevant to the politics of today, even for people living hundereds of miles away. The guide gave a personal as well as broadening explenation about the conflict and life behind the wall. It was touching and enlightening, a must for anyone who visits the country of Israël as well as Palestina. We recommend it to everyone.
Thank you Dani.
Amazing price. Knowledgeable local guide. Customisable. 10/10. If you are going to Bethlehem you should book this tour!
My husband and I did this tour a few days ago and we are so happy that we booked it. Before we left Ireland we spoke with Dani and he told us his family has a hostel there so we booked it. The House of Peace is a lovely family-run business very close to the centre and a great price. The evening before the tour we met Dani and asked him for advice on how we could get to the Dead Sea. He ended up customising the whole tour with us so that we could do everything we wanted, even though we only had a day.
While we were on Dani's tour we saw other tour groups arrive from the bigger cities and are led to the main religious sites and are quickly put back on the buses. We couldn't help but think they missed so much of what Bethlehem had to offer. They also would have paid a lot more so we felt very lucky to have found this tour.
Dani took us to Aida refugee camp where we met locals and saw their amazing graffiti murals. He then brought us to Banksy's Walled Off Hotel which was decorated brilliantly and had a fantastic museum inside. He also drove us to Manger Square so that we could visit the birthplace of Jesus. After this we left to go to Jericho, the longest continuously inhabited city in the world... 11,000 years! We also visited the Sycamore tree and the river Jordan where Its said Jesus was baptised. It was amazing to be within 5 metres of the Jordon border.
We then drove to the Dead Sea to float in the salty water and give ourselves a mud body mask. Our skin was super soft after!
Dani then drove us to a town to catch a bus to Jerusalem and he waited with us until it arrived.
This is a unique, interesting and fun tour at an amazing price. Dani is really smart and a lovely guy. He even played the piano for us and he's very talented!
We loved touring Bethlehem and other parts of Palestine with him. We will definitely be back and we will 100% book something with Dani again!
Dani es un chico encantador, comprometido y apasionado de su trabajo. Uno de los que, como muchos de nosotros, sueñan con el fin de este conflicto a través del diálogo y el conocimiento y son estas firmes convicciones las que hacen de este tour una experiencia tan especial. Con él descubrirás la parte más cruda y humana de Palestina, recorrerás sus calles conociendo su historia pasada y su situación presente y, sobre todo, volverás con tu corazón rendido a este hermoso pais.
You can only submit a review or rating of an experience to Viator if you were the person who made the booking through Viator. Before publication, each review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information for each of the following criteria: who, what, how, and when. If the system detects something that contradicts our publication criteria, the review is not published. When the system detects a problem with a review, it may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site. In some cases, we will also send you an email asking you to validate your review before it is published. All you need to do is click on the link provided in the email. After publication, our team checks each review reported to it as not meeting our publication criteria. Tripadvisor reviews that appear on the Viator site are subject to the same checks and moderation processes as set out above. It is not necessary to have booked an experience through Viator (or Tripadvisor) to submit a review of an experience to the Tripadvisor site.
Viator wants to make your searches as relevant as possible. That’s why we offer many ways to help you find the right experiences for you. On some pages, you can select how to sort the results we display and also use filter options to see only those search results that meet your chosen preferences. You’ll see explanations of what those sort options mean when you select them. You’ll see some experiences with a “Promoted” badge, which means that the operators of those experiences have agreed to pay Viator more to have their experience highlighted. If you see an Experience Award Winner label, the award is based on average review ratings, share of bookings with a review, and number of bookings through Viator over a 12-month period. The importance of any one factor over any other in a sort order varies, and the balance is constantly being reviewed and adjusted. We’re always updating our systems and testing new ways to refine and improve your results to make them as relevant as possible to meet your needs.
