Michael J.

Bethlehem, West Bank

I am a licensed local Christian tour guide from Bethlehem.

I love my city, here I was born, grew up and studied among my family and friends. I love to bring my city alive and I love to meet new people from different cultures and different background from all over the world to share stories and experiences and enjoy life. Our world have lots of amazing and interesting things but it's the people who bring it to life. Everyone I meet is new and refreshing.

I tailor made my tours to the interest of my guests. I do religious, historical, adventure and hiking tours. I'm passionate about what I do and I love to help people. Nothing is more fulfilling than being part of a team with similar interests, and among friends that values your efforts.

I work with small groups, families and individuals and make sure they get the most of the tour. My tourists always say that I make them feel like they're with a friend who knows perfectly the job of a tour guide and very knowledgeable. I am always on time and well prepared to meet them and show them around as a friend not as a customer and I always make sure they are happy and satisfied.

I am always flexible and I make sure to give you the time to explore and ask questions way more time than actually was arranged and never push you for anything.

I look forward to meet you.

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a great tour experience with Michael. He was friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, and helped us avoid the large tour groups at the various stops. He made us feel like VIP tourists! The restaurant he took us to has the best Falafels in the region. What a treat! Thank you Michael.

I am a Palestinian licensed tour guide certified by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities of Palestine. My license number is 140271.


I'm a licensed guide in Palestine only but not Israel but I can arrange transportation and pick ups upon request for individuals, small and larger groups and can arrange a separate driver if necessary.
