My experience was fantastic. A really fun day meeting very friendly people and gaining a lot of insight into past and current socio-cultural climate in Israel and Palestine. You can see so much in one day! The driver was especially kind, and had a lot of interesting things to say about life in the region today. It took away a lot of the misconceptions given by western media. It was a really informative day, yet very chill and relaxing. One thing to keep in mind is that the stops on the tour are subject to change depending on weather, problems at the checkpoint and groups. They kind of mixed a few people together and combined our tours (also because it was raining so some stops were closed). If you're flexible and dont mind that things could change on the day, it's a great experience. However, if you have a very specific need to see a certain site, I would recommend getting in touch with the tour company the night before the tour to check what their plans are.

Beautiful experience. The driver who accompanied us throughout the day was very good, he explained a lot of things and made a couple of beautiful detours (for example the panoramic sunset over Jerusalem). The guides spoke excellent English and were very knowledgeable. Too bad for the timing, because all the guides ran a lot and the explanations proved to be a little too hasty. I would prefer a more complete overview of Bethlehem (even independently) rather than touched and escaped as it was.

The tour we had taken was only in English but we found ourselves together with that of the Spaniards, they will have done it for convenience, the guide was prepared. The return was by taxi, not bad, we only had to discuss with the driver to let us leave our hotel and not in the main street
