This was the most interesting day tour in a small group during my stay in Israel/Palestine. The Christian Palestinian guide knew how to convey history, religion, culture and the current political situation with his extensive knowledge and put together an extraordinary tour in a short space of time. He made this day a fascinating journey between biblical history and the stark contrasts of everyday life in the West Bank. He also invited us to his home for a fantastic lunch, which was included in the tour booking. He explained the constellation and thus the intentions of the individual politicians/countries very well with a lot of background knowledge. We were in Ramallah, Jericho and Bethlehem and also looked at the wall and the Bansky Wall off Hotel. Highly recommended! The tour was just a few days before the terrible attacks of October 7, 2023.

The tour on the West Bank was wonderful. Our guide Kamal was a magnificent guide. He gave us insight into the life on West Bank. We visited Jericho and Bethlehem but couldn’t go to Ramallah because of an incident that happened the day before. Our guide gave us good information about the history; Biblical and political. Kamal was full of serenity, objectivity and with a perspective from both sides, in spite of living himself under those circumstances. We had a wonderful lunch at his home. The last stop was at the West Bank Wall which had a deep affect on us. We cannot recommend this tour enough. Thank you Kamal.

The experience was unforgettable, mostly thanks to our guide Kamal. Every sentence and consideration he did were worth writing them down and they specially resonate these days, we were there only a week ago. Hope you are all keeping safe.

Great guide, ready to answer questions and the explanations were good and interesting. Always looking out for the passenger safety. Also the people at the desk are friendly and ready to help

Fantastic tour; I'm sure we couldn't do it now, so sad. We are grateful that we were able to go when we did. Amazing sights.
