This visit is a must to more fully understand the Israeli-Palestine situation. It's so much richer than just seeing Bethlehem as a half-day from Jerusalem. Our tour guide was well-informed and candid. Seeing "the wall" is stunning (stop at the Banksy museum store while there). The biblical sites are fine and in my opinion pale in comparison to driving through the countryside, seeing the Bedouins and getting a sense of how different conditions on the ground are. I was concerned the tour would feel exploitative, like visiting the reservations of Native Americans in the US but it wasn't like that at all. I am so glad I did it. Side note, the temperature was much chillier than in Tel Aviv so check the forecast and plan accordingly.

The seven-hour tour flew by. The tour was varied and - in addition to the obligatory highlights that you know from travel guides - you really saw some corners that you "normally" don't reach. Great.

Gripping and fantastically good experience that gives a deeper insight into Palestine and the situation there. Our guide was engaging and answered all our questions.

Excellent content. Alina, our guide was very knowledgable , and very friendly. Had a lovely day and met really nice people on the tour

Wonderful experience with a very special guide. Thank you, Adina. You are beautiful!!!
