Amazing tour of Palestine
FabrizioAngelo_O
, May 2020
It is not easy to create a narrative around Palestine that is not too bias by the conflict with Israel and all the horrible things Palestinians have suffered and continue suffering, but the guide we had during this tour did a great job. The story he told across Ramallah, Bethlehem, Jericho and the Jordan valley was very interesting and captured our attention. We were very unlucky with the weather - it rained the entire day and Ramallah was hit by terrible winds, but in spite of the atmospheric issues we had, the tour was amazing. Highly recommended, especially if interested in knowing more about Palestinian people, history, nature and cities. The most touching thing, which I highly recommend not to miss, was the Bethlehem wall. It makes you think on how in a world in which we should create bridges among people, there's someone that builds walls forgetting that, as recent history thought us, walls are made to be torn down.

Informative and well arranged trip with great guide and driver

This was a great, informative trip and I really recommend it. It gives a nice crosscut of the rather varied history in the region. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fair, and the route worked to fill in the day without making it too full. I joined the group in Tel Aviv and got off in Jerusalem, so for those of you who want to see both cities this is a good option. It starts and ends at the same hostel in both places.

Palestine Tour

Tour actually was fine but I wanted to really see Jericho which is why I took it, basically just a quick visit to the tell and moved on down the road. For the rest it was fine, lunch was ok. We had a cold nasty rainy day but we did get to see everything as advertised so really no complaints other than that.

Hey Joanne! Sorry to hear that the rainy day negatively impacted your tour. Our Best of the West Bank tour is a highlights tour of the area, which allows you to see many different sites in the West Bank in only 1 day! Our stop in Jericho is a quick visit to the archaeological remains of the oldest city in the world. Hope you can join us on a tour again soon!

The guide was funny, knowledgeable and generous. He bought us lots of fruits when walking through the market. Lunch was delicious. However... - we didn't get to take the cable car and visit the monastery in Jericho; - we didn't get to go inside Yasser Arafat Museum. Only outside to take photos with the soldiers... There's not much details on the tour description either. Try not to join this tour on Fri, as the towns are very quiet. Almost all the shops are closed. We did visit Church of Nativity and the West Bank barrier which was highlight of the trip.

You must see the West Bank to get another viewpoint of what's going on in Israel. My favourite part was the 2 km walk through Ramallah. Also first time ever the 'free meal' on a day trip was actually good. We eat in Bethlehem in a local restaurant. The guide was good, but I think he could speak more. There were drives between the sight with long 'dead' periods. He could tell more stories about the West Bank. Also when we were picked up from Abraham hostel in Tel Aviv we were not briefed where to go next. The driver listened some music during the trip to Jerusalem and at the hotel they didn't recognized our Viator ticket just after a manager came. So what this tour is missing is more information and more clarification on the road. The highlights of the tour is the Bethlehem wall and the Ramallah tour, but it is important to understand what is on the both side of the Bethlehem wall
