The tour with the guide, Hazem, who organizes the tours together with Michael, was better than perfect!! Without him, it should be impossible to visit various places in Jericho and Bethlehem in a day. You must visit Hisham's Palace and a lookout point to see St. George's Monastery. Also, he provided very interesting talks at every sites and even during driving.
Another fantastic point of his guide was that he respected my preference and style of sightseeing. He did not force me anything. He did not push me to, for example, buy some souvenirs (but, of course, you can step in some shops if you like). He kept asking me what I want to do and what I am interested in. He understood my style, and he made time for me to take some photos and to look around alone at every sites. So, the tour was stress-free!! I relaxed very much during the tour.
You may think about that the tour is more expensive than other bus tours when you take this tour alone. I would say that it is worth paying for this tour!!

Michael helped us design a tour of just the things we wanted to see in Jericho, Bethlehem and the surrounding area. He planned out everything ahead and checked with the sites we wanted to visit to make sure they would be open and then checked in with us a few days ahead of the tour to make sure we were all set. The day of the tour everything went smoothly and we were able to experience everything we wanted to do and more. Since Michael was born and grew up in Bethlehem and has been doing tours for many years, he knows many of the people at the sites we visited personally and thus can arrange a personal experience. I have never experienced a tour so well thought out and organized.
Michael provided explanations of the history of the people of Palestine form the beginning which helped us really understand the significance of the sites we visited along with the current situation. Perhaps most important was that Michael took the tine to understand what we wanted to learn about and our touring style and adjusted his approach to meet our needs.

My husband and I hired Michael for a full day private tour of Jericho, St. George’s Monastery, and Bethlehem. We had an AMAZING experience. Michael is very knowledgeable in the rich history of the area and of all of the sites that we visited. As we drove us to our various destinations, Michael explained the area that we were passing through and shared information about life in Palestinian from antiquity to present. Once at the sights he led us on a journey through time. His insights on the places that we visited made history come to life. Aside from learning about the Palestine of old, we were able to better understand the struggles that exist today, and see them through different eyes. Thank you, Michael, for our unforgettable tour, and treating us like personal friends. Our tour with Michael was a true highlight of our time in Israel. One of the best tours I have ever had anywhere!!

Michael is great and we had a wonderful time seeing the sights we wanted to see and more. I am usually a bit wary of such high ratings but with Michael, this is definitely true. He is very patient and knowledgeable and able to show us the sights and share insights in a warm and informative way (easier . It was such a welcomed change after our experience with other guides in our earlier part of the trip. The day went by much quicker than expected since we enjoyed ourselves so much. We highly recommend Michael!

Michael was awesome from the moment I contacted him about the Bethlehem, Jericho, Mount of Temptation tour to the moment he dropped us back at our hotel. He was super flexible when we had to increase the size of our group a couple of times including last minute additions. He didn't just repeat a rehearsed speech but was interested in our diverse backgrounds and was then able to cover a wide range of topics to address our interests from the historical, cultural and political perspectives. It was the very personal touch that made it so special. His driver Sammy who picked us up and spent the day with us was equally personable. I can't recommend Michael and this tour enough.

Michael was an exceptional tour guide. He communicated well, was efficient and took us to a number of interesting places. Some we asked to see, others he suggested. He picked us up from our place in Jericho and dropped us off after a full day touring to get our connection to Bethlehem. If you are thinking of visiting the West Bank I would suggest you do 2 things. Firstly make Bethlehem your base for a few nights as it’s a great little town and secondly book Michael in advance. He was fabulous.

This was an excellent tour in the West Bank. Michael was an amazing tour guide- he is very knowledgeable of history of the area as well as biblical events, and offered a lot of insight into life in Palestine. We enjoyed visiting such a variety of sights in just one day- the separation wall, Banksy art, church of Nativity in Bethlehem, Mount Temptation, Jericho, and of course floating in the Dead Sea! Thanks Michael for a wonderful and enlightening day!

Why ANYONE would come to the Holy Land and not spend a day with Michele is beyond me.

The ease of going through checkpoints to see, taste and learn from a man who knows much and is a delight to learn from.

From biblical knowledge to historical expertise to political astuteness, one of the best guides we have ever had.

Simply a great day!!

You know that a guide is a good one if you feel like you made a new friend after the tour. It really felt like touring with a friend rather than a guide. Knowledgeable, friendly, patient, flexible, and listening to our wishes and plans. I can 100% recommend Michael. He is happy to customize the tour to your needs.
