What You Can Expect

Hebron Day Trip from Jerusalem: Israeli-Palestinian Sites

Learn the complex story of the fights between Israel and Palestine from two different local guides

Jewish and Arabic national movements have struggled to gain authority for their people in this region of the Middle East for many years. Hebron's population is split between Palestinians and Israelis that live in two separate sectors: H1, which is controlled by the Palestine National Authority and H2, by Israel.

Your tour into this region begins with meeting your guide, who takes you on public transport for about two hours to the city of Hebron, located in the heart of the Judean mountains.

Start on the Israeli side of Hebron with an Israeli-Jewish guide who will speak of the variety of tensions that exist from his people’s perspective. Take a bulletproof bus to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the world's most ancient Jewish site and the second holiest place for the Jewish people, after Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Explore Jewish settlements and visit landmarks like Tel Rumeida, an agricultural and residential area believed to be the location of biblical Hebron and others.

Then, travel into the H1 sector to meet with a Palestinian guide for the second half of the tour. Enjoy an optional lunch at a Palestinian family’s home followed by a tour of the main part of the city. Talk with local residents about the difficulties of living in this volatile region and visit the Muslim side of the Tomb of the Patriarchs, also known as the Ibrahimi Mosque.

Your full-day (11 hour) tour concludes here with transportation back to Jerusalem.

A brilliant and thought provoking day in a totally divided city.
I had heard a lot about Hebron, mainly a bias view on how badly the Israeli's are treating the Palestinian's so I wanted to hear both sides of the story and find out the truth of the situation. So this 'duel narrative tour' was ideal.

We met Gabriel, our Jewish guide, he gave us a brilliant insight into the conflict and how this the people of Hebron were trying to deal with it. So we got on a bullet proof bus to make the journey from Jerusalem. When we reached Hebron, Gabe intoduced us to Mohammed our Muslim Palestinian guide who took us through the check point. Here we walked through a beautiful old part of the city and talked to several people who said how much the Jewish people had persecuted them and were ruining their lives.

We then came back, through the check point, to the Jewish part of the city. Gabriel showed us where the Palestinians had murdered Jewish people, including a baby and 6 students and where a teddy bear had been stuffed with explosives and placed in a playground!! We were introduced to a Jewish lady who told her own story and gave her views on how this situation could be resolved. What a day! So interesting hearing both sides. One side will not accept a resolution, the other side want nothing but peace and a way to live together as one nation.

Could not fault the day.
