We enoyed the tour with the family of three being our guides. We felt part of the Palesitinian community. Value for the money was good.
Apart from the visits to the grotto, churches, shepherds fields and the fences, we were treated with local delicacies. This was not at a store, so it we did not experience a dressed up sales event but rather an exchange of cultures.
Yes, the tour ended at a local souvenir shop of the community, but this was limited to just 20 minutes with no pressure at all. And to our suprise at the end of the tour there wasn't even an opportunity to leave a tip.
This was illustrative for the good vibe during the trip.
