the tour guide achraf is a professional. he lives in bethlehem has a lot of knowledge about the history and situations. the places you visit are busy and popular. I wanted short and beautiful that's what I got. if you want more time per place, I would choose to conduct the tour with a private driver. max 15 min per location.

interesting day; a reasonable 'taste'.

a supporting map to assist spacial awareness would be helpful- at times it seemed we were crisss-crossing the desert; also some historical factual notes to assist (altho I did some apres trip desk research to supplement)...the guide in this instance could have been more dispassionate so not to infuse with his own bias which was quite evident. overall despite a confused presentation of the political, historical, and geographical it was worthwhile, but with specific focus these tours could be more meaningful..

Open-eyed tour!

Kamal, our fantastic guide, gave us an extraordinarily interesting journey about the history, religion and politics of the West Bank. In addition, he allowed us to know a little of his life and his family with a delicious lunch at his home. I value his equanimous view and encyclopedic knowledge shared with kindness and interest. Thank you very much!
