Most Helpful Positive Review
Reviewed 12 December 2013

I took two separate day tours with two different Green Olive guides to Bethlehem and Hebron. These were two truly outstanding, fascinating, and eye-opening days, with excellent guiding, a great itinerary, and well organised. The visit to Hebron was, in particular, extraordinary, particularly having the...More

We were rather disappointed with the tour. At the beginning it all went well - we were picked up in Jerusalem, transferred to the checkpoint and then awaited by our Palestinian guide. As planned, we visited a refugee camp and a Palestinian organization. We had...More

One of the best tours I've done. Very informative local guide Mustafa, filled us in on ancient and recent history in the area. Learned a lot and gained great insight into the plight of palestinian's in the area. Would highly recommend touring with Green Olive.

Beware! I felt this tour of the West Bank (Bethlehem and Ramallah) was an over-simplification and completely one-sided version (pro Palestinian) of a deep-rooted conflict that exists until today and of course has historical causes. While interesting to tour the area, the constant bombardment of...More
