Start at the famous Church of the Nativity, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s built on the spot where Jesus was born: it’s the world’s oldest church in regular daily use. Visit the Cave of St. Jerome, below the church, where he translated the bible. Visit the Church of St. Catherine and the Milk Grotto Church. Short drive to Beit Sahour, considered the city of the shepherds. Visit the Shepherd’s Field, where the angel appeared to the shepherds and told them about Jesus’ birth.

Relax in air-conditioned comfort as you drive towards Jordan River. Along the way, you’ll pass by various religious sites: St. Theodosius’ Monastery, where some believe the wise men hid from Herod the Great after they visited the baby Jesus in Bethlehem, and al-Eizariya, which is Lazarus’ village.

Visit Qasr el Yahud, the baptismal site in Jordan River and a chance to renew your baptism if you wish. Continue to Dead Sea where you will get the chance to float in the lowest and saltiest sea in the world. Dead Sea is full of minerals and its mud is very good for the skin.

Drive back either to Checkpoint 300 or your Bethlehem hotel, where your tour will finish at 4pm.
