Ben Gurion International Airport is located to the east of Tel Aviv. There is public transportation (shared taxis, in Hebrew 'sherut') to the major cities in Israel. To get to Bethlehem, you can take the Nesher sherut to Jerusalem and ask the driver to drop you off at the Ecumenical Institute Tantur. The ticket costs NIS 45 -60 .- (see below for information about the currency). Tantur is only a 10 min. walk from the Gilo 300 Checkpoint at the entrance to Bethlehem. You can ask the driver to drop you at the checkpoint, but not all drivers might do so. On the other side of the checkpoint, you can take a taxi to our Guesthouse which costs NIS 20-30.-
if you are travelling from Jordan then take a service taxi from the Allenby border to Jerusalem, to Damascus gate. From there take bus 21, as above.

Below is information in Arabic explaining how to get to the Guesthouse – to show if your taxi driver doesn't know where the Guesthouse is in Beit Sahour (obviously only use this in Palestine…):
