Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
We are sensitive to the issues and concerns that surround this topic, and we understand that this tour may not be suitable for everyone. We strongly believe that the purpose of this tour is to educate people on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with firsthand knowledge from the local guides.
What You Can Expect
Since the early 20th century, Jewish and Arabic national movements have struggled to attain sovereignty for their people in this region of the Middle East. Hebron's population is split between Palestinians and Israelis living in two divided sectors: H1, controlled by Palestine, and the much smaller H2, administered by Israel.
Your visit begins on the Israeli side of Hebron, onboard a bullet-proof bus, with your expert guide — an Israeli Jew — who provides a narrative of the cultural, religious and political tension from his people’s perspective.
Arrive at the Jewish side of the Tomb of the Patriarchs, home to the symbolic tombs of Abraham and other biblical figures, all said to be buried in the cave beneath. Then tour Jewish settlements of the city to see important landmarks such as the Avraham Avinu synagogue, the hilltop Tel Rumeida archaeological site, the Shavei Hevron Yeshiva community center, and the Beit Hadassah museum.
