The tour was fantastic and informative. There was a good balance of religious sites and modern Palestinian locations. The end of the tour was the show-stopper, worth it just for that part.
Amazing and informative tour! the tour guide was very knowledgeable. The only opportunity to learn a little about Palestinian struggle.
Don Tamer Halaseh, tour guide, was excellent, he made our visit to the West Bank a unique, pleasant great experience, we would like to go back and explore more. Thanks!! A to the tour guide.
first, you start the day, passing by a few checkpoints along the 425 mile west bank barrier wall, then you will go to ramallah, then jericho and then the river jordan for a mini baptism. after a pit stop at the river, you will have an arab style lunch of muqluba a massive pot of rice, chicken and cauliflower in bethlehem. after lunch and a visit to the church of nativity across the street, you end the tour with the bethlehem checkpoint/barrier walls where you have a chance to test out your spray painting skills. this tour is definitely worth it: i learned so much about palestinian culture and history from our kickass knowledgable tour guide, tamer and i got to see pretty much all of the west bank within 10 short hours. the place is very volatile with someone getting stabbed/gunned down pretty much every day but not once did i feel like my life was in danger.
Fantastic. Saw what I would never have expected in a muslim state. Didn't know Palestinians are so friendly and modern. Never felt in danger. The tour guide was fabulous - even bought us some local snacks and bananas at his own cost, without any expectation of gratuity
Not sure why I'm the first to write this review. I visited the West Bank last Saturday October 17 2015, amidst growing violence between Israelis and Palestinians. Our guide, Tamer, was fantastic and not once in the tour did I feel unsafe or threatened because of all the media outbursts on how dangerous things are. Tamer periodically checked his iPad and phone to keep in touch with any new developments so that we were not close to anywhere unsafe. He was not only extremely well-balanced in his knowledge of both sides of the conflict, but also had a great sense of humor and entertained all sorts of questions. I loved Palestine!
