    What to Expect
    Jewish and Arabic national movements have struggled to gain authority for their people in this region of the Middle East for many years. Hebron's population is split between Palestinians and Israelis that live in two separate sectors: H1, which is controlled by the Palestine National Authority and H2, by Israel.

    Your tour into this region begins with meeting your guide, who takes you on public transport for about two hours to the city of Hebron, located in the heart of the Judean mountains.

    Start on the Israeli side of Hebron with an Israeli-Jewish guide who will speak of the variety of tensions that exist from his people’s perspective. Take a bulletproof bus to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the world's most ancient Jewish site and the second holiest place for the Jewish people, after Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Explore Jewish settlements and visit landmarks like Tel Rumeida, an agricultural and residential area believed to be the location of biblical Hebron and others.

    Then, travel into the H1 sector to meet with a Palestinian guide for the second half of the tour. Enjoy an optional lunch at a Palestinian family’s home followed by a tour of the main part of the city. Talk with local residents about the difficulties of living in this volatile region and visit the Muslim side of the Tomb of the Patriarchs, also known as the Ibrahimi Mosque.

    Your full-day (11 hour) tour concludes here with transportation back to Jerusalem.

    From start to finish, an incredible inside look at the most hotly contested city between Israelis and Palestinians. Both guides, Eliyahu and Mohammed, provided in-depth analysis of life on both sides of the checkpoints. As advertised, we learned more about the situation in one day...More
