Celebrating Christmas in Israel and Palestine is one of the most magical moments for every Christian.
After all, there is no better place to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ then in the town where he was born.
Christmas in Israel is less common as a result of the dominant Jewish and Muslim population and yet it has so much to offer.
In areas with large Christian population such as Haifa, Nazareth, Jerusalem, as well as in many Russian neighborhoods, you will find many of the holiday’s symbols.
However, each group has different traditions so some of you might find them unique and unfamiliar.
Therefore, Christmas in Israel is both exciting and unique.
In addition, there is a great importance in finding the right tour guide for this mission.
Getting a certified guide is very important but isn’t necessarily enough to maximize the spiritual experience.
Holy Land VIP Tours offer you the opportunity to visit the mentioned places, on a Private Christian tour.
Also, all the tours are led by our certified, local Christian guide.
Any certified guide can conduct a tour in those places, but only a Christian one can truly understand each place’s importance for our faith.
Also, we are one of the only touring companies which operate in both Israel and Palestine without switching guides.
As a result, our tours are flexible and customizable in accordance with your needs and desires.
Christmas in Bethlehem – the best place for Christmas in the land of Israel and Palestine

The celebrations are held in the town on three different dates:
