Highly recommend! Our group of four people thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Hazem. His car was clean, comfortable, safe, and had good AC. His concise, yet complete, overview of the history of the establishment of Israel was one of the best we’d heard (delivered enroute from the meeting at the checkpoint to Hebron).
He was easy to communicate with before, during, and after the tour.
He doesn’t push a viewpoint on you, but also doesn’t pull any punches about the realities of life for people in the area. We thought he balanced really well between covering history and culture, along with sightseeing and the chance to shop at places with local goods, along with explaining daily life in the area. He clearly knew a number of lunch options and took us to a great little shawarma place (not some overpriced tourist spot with way more food than anyone needs).
A couple of us had self-guided in Bethlehem before and there was value in going with Hazem in terms of local knowledge beyond what’s in guidebooks. I’m also happy that we used a local, Arab guide instead of a guide or group who’s not even from the area. We would definitely tour with Hazem again!

Hazem was very informative and kind. He gave us an amazing experience of Palestine. He was very fast in replying to our emails. He answered all our questions and took us to amazing local restaurants. We felt like locals discovering Palestine with him.

I’ve had the pleasure to go on several private tours with Hazem over the years.
His knowledge of Palestine and its history is spectacular and unmatched. His personality is so contagious that he’ll have you dancing, learning and laughing the entire trip.
If you want a truly unforgettable experience, Hazem is the best choice. He is by far the best tour guide I’ve had. I highly recommended him!

I highly recommend Hazem and Discover Palestine! Hazem is very friendly and you can tell he really enjoys showing people his country. He is knowledgeable of current and historical events and can give you context on any area you visit. He takes the time to carefully explain the details of life in Palestine and welcomes any questions. It is important to visit the West Bank cities with locals who understand the culture and the conflict. Discover Palestine provides a memorable and meaningful experience and I will definitely use them again.

We had an unforgettable experience on this tour with our local guide Hazem.

From the beginning, all communications with Hazem were prompt, clear and professional. It must also be noted that we booked this tour on a whim the day before and Hazem was quick to respond and had it organised - for this, among many other aspects, we are grateful to him.

We managed to cover all the listed places in the itinerary and we even had a lovely local lunch in Bethlehem. Hazem was very patient with us as we took time to purchase items in some stores - we never felt rushed. He is also clearly well known in the area as he greets and is greeted by locals and other tour guides. A special shoutout to Bassem at the Olive Wood Factory who made us feel right at home as a fellow Kiwi.

Hazem is excellent and very deserving of his 5* rating. He is open, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about his country, culture and history. His first-hand experiences are invaluable for a tour of this nature. We really appreciated the care he took when taking us around Hebron and Bethlehem; we felt completely safe and at ease with him.

We cannot recommend this tour enough - this was one of the best tours we have been on and we would book again through Discover Palestine in a heartbeat. We would like to thank Hazem from the bottom of our hearts for being a wonderful host, guide and friend. Hope to see you again in the future, Hazem. Many thanks for everything.

I spent a fantastic day with Hazem. As a solo traveler, it was a real privilege to be taken to these amazing locations by someone so friendly and knowledgeable.

Hazem was able to give me a good understanding of the historical, political and religious background, though of course just one day isn't nearly enough time to cover everything!

Hazem even introduced me to some of his friends and we enjoyed time in a coffee shop in the Aida refugee camp, talking to people who lived and worked there.

All communications from when I booked the tour to the morning of the tour were extremely clear and helpful, meaning that we were able to meet at the right time and place with no problems at all.

This was certainly the highlight of my trip and I only wish I could have had a longer tour, but I will just have to go back and explore more of Palestine with Hazem.

I wholeheartedly recommend Discover Palestine to anyone thinking about visiting Palestine. A trip to the region just wouldn't be complete without it.

Thank you again and I hope we meet again in the future.
