Our guide, George, was absolutely incredible - highly knowledgable about the history and culture, really thoughtful in helping us experience day-to-day life, and, let's be honest, herding 33 humans can be way more painful than he made it seem. He was also super open to answering all our questions ... we learned more in 8 hours than we have in all our years of schooling, and definitely more than mainstream media cares to share. Plus - lots of historic sites, a yummy home-cooked meal, and the Banksy hotel!

Enjoyed since minute one this trip. I was very interested in the West bank situation, and walking around with our guide around Ramallah was the best experience ... He explained quite well all the situation in Palestine, their way of leaving and how they organise their daily life.... Lunch in a Palestinian house was a highlight.
Don't doubt it, this full day trip is perfect to combine with the typical trip to Israel.

Incredibly knowledgable, Housam gave us the background and the current situation.
At the Church of the Nativity, he went beyond his responsibilities and helped speed up the hundreds of people lined up ahead of us waiting to enter the cave beneath the church.

Great tour, well organised. Makes you realise you cannot trust mass media. Eat all the proffered goodies, especially the pastries the best in the world!
