This West Bank Tour package is made up of three separate day tours, each starting and ending in Jerusalem. You can take them in any order you wish, depending on the days you choose.
The first tour is a general introduction day called ‘The Best of the West Bank’, which covers a number of important cities and towns. We start in Bethlehem with a guided tour of the city, and visit a few of the sites associated with Jesus, including the Church of the Nativity, the Milk Grotto and the Shepherd’s field. We’ll also visit the separation barrier, a prominent and controversial feature of the entire West Bank, and walk through the old city, stopping for a delicious Middle eastern lunch. Then we drive to Jericho, stopping by at Qasr el-Yahud, a baptism site on the Jordan River. We’ll move on to Jericho itself, and take a cable car up the Mount of Temptation which is the ancient site of the temptation of Jesus by the devil. The tour finishes in Ramallah, the lively, vibrant West Bank city, which we will explore before summing up the day and returning to Jerusalem.
The second tour is the Nablus and Jenin Tour, going up to the north of the West Bank. On this tour, we’ll discover some hidden corners of the West Bank, allowing us to understand the complex situation even better. We’ll visit Jenin, a Palestinian refugee camp far in the North of the West Bank, see its cultural center and tour around the camp and bustling markets. We’ll visit Jacobs Tomb, a site which is considered holy by Jews, Christians and Muslims, and then head into the old city of Nablus itself, an exciting old city, full of markets, minarets and tasty food. We’ll visit a hamam (old bathhouse), a traditional soap factory, as well as other sites in the city. We’ll visit the Samaritans who have been living around Mount Gerizim for millennia, as well as see a tahina factory, and taste their produce. We’ll stop for lunch during the day at the village of Zababdeh.
The third and last part of the package is a unique tour focused on one city – Hebron. The Dual-Narrative Hebron Tour is a great way to access one of the most special and most complicated cities in the world. Two tour guides – a Jewish settler and a Palestinian resident – show you their sides of the city and tell you their story. At the center of Hebron is a huge monument holding the tombs of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (and their wives), holy to both Jews and Muslims. The two communities have a long and turbulent history in the city, and the two guides will guide you through their versions of that story, as well as showing you the sights, sounds and smells of the city.
The three tours complement each other and each one adds another part to the complex picture that is the West Bank. You’ll come out more experienced and more knowledgeable, and have great stories to share.
