Michael was there to meet us at the checkpoint between Israel & Palestine, & he drove us to the sites in Bethlehem that we wanted to see. Michael is an amazing tour guide & I could not recommend him more. He really brought history to life for us, & took the time to thoroughly explain the history & the importance of each site we visited. I did the tour bus to Israel & Palestine last year, and the difference between a private tour & a bus tour cannot be measured. I would use Michael again in a heartbeat.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Candace, I am glad that you enjoyed my tour. Greetings to your mother and thanks for the review. You are always welcome back again.

We had a wonderful day with Michael in Bethlehem. He arranged for a driver to pick us up in Tel Aviv and take us to Bethlehem. He took us to all the important spots and educated us on each. We also visited an Olive Press museum, mosaic workshop, and an icon art school! As a Christian, being able to visit the site where Jesus was born was very special but VERY crowded! Michael guided us through it very well. We enjoyed eating lunch with him and would recommend him to anyone!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan for the nice words. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour and I hope to meet you again.

My son and I had a wonderful tour of Bethlehem last week with Michael who is a very safe driver. He is a cultured, warm young man with a vast knowledge of the holy sites he took us to. Adept at avoiding large tour groups, he ensured we saw everything in peace that allowed us to experience the calm ambience of Bethlehem. It's a very safe place to visit. Everyone we met was welcoming. Don't miss the "Christmas House" gift store with the beautiful wood carvings. Highly recommended tour. Thank you Michael!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joss, Thank you for your reply. It was a real pleasure to meet you. You are great people and you are always welcome whenever you come again and I hope one day I will be able to make it to Australia and I will definitely contact you. All the best

While visiting family in Israel, my husband and I wanted to spend a few hours touring Bethlehem. We decided this at the very last minute and I was lucky to find Michael and that he was available. From the initial communication all the way through the end of the tour, Michael was professional and wonderful to work with. He gave us a private tour and we felt like locals walking through the attractions and the city. He is also very educated about the city and Israeli/Palestinian history as a whole. It was
