What people are saying about Tel Aviv

The Palestinian (Greek Orthodox) guide could tell us a lot about the history, politics, own personal experiences as a Palestinian and biblical history of/in this area of the West Bank. In Ramallah we had delicious ice cream and falafel. Lunch at Bethlehem was very good. Could also be vegan if you wanted. No queue at the birthplace of Jesus. The story about Jericho was interesting, but the place itself less so. There would be a very nice unique mosaic floor nearby, which would be more worth visiting. Feet in the Jordaan and there was the possibility to visit a museum about Palestinian history in Bethlehem, near the "wall". All in all very satisfied.

Due to the short opening hours of the border crossing, the time in Jordan and Petra was limited. But thanks to the excellent job done by the driver, the tour guide and the other people involved I got the most out of the time that was available and had a great experience.

We had very little time because it was only one day, I recommend two days! The very friendly taxi driver the very polite guide. An unforgettable experience

Very interesting experience showing the reality of West Bank

Great experience. Beautiful places and a great guide.
