    interesting day; a reasonable 'taste'.

    a supporting map to assist spacial awareness would be helpful- at times it seemed we were crisss-crossing the desert; also some historical factual notes to assist (altho I did some apres trip desk research to supplement)...the guide in this instance could have been more dispassionate so not to infuse with his own bias which was quite evident. overall despite a confused presentation of the political, historical, and geographical it was worthwhile, but with specific focus these tours could be more meaningful..

    Open-eyed tour!

    Kamal, our fantastic guide, gave us an extraordinarily interesting journey about the history, religion and politics of the West Bank. In addition, he allowed us to know a little of his life and his family with a delicious lunch at his home. I value his equanimous view and encyclopedic knowledge shared with kindness and interest. Thank you very much!

    Very animated tour

    Long journey that flew by. You manage to see a little of Bethlehem, Jericho and Ramallah in one day. If you want a more extensive visit, you could do this tour by yourself, but it would take a few days. With this tour you can get a quick view on these sites. Our guide, Kamal is a very colourful person who knows how to keep topics interesting. A tasting of local bananas, the best dates and a meal at his home were included in the tour and we loved it! It is safe to conclude that we recommend this tour, especially if you’re limited in time.
