We went on the tour with our two children. Everything went very well. Of course, everything is only briefly touched on in the short time available, but it's worth it. The price is high but you will be competently and safely guided through the sights. Insights into nature, politics and religions are offered. The guide, who also prepared lunch in his house (that was sensationally good!) was very easygoing and extremely individual to the group. We recommend the tour for a quick look at the sights of the West Bank.

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.

Really interesting trip. I particularly liked the Ramallah part of it to hear a side of a situation one rarely does. Our guide, George, was fantastic. I felt comfortable asking him challenging questions and he didn't shy away from anything. We saw so much and were taken great care of.
