I went on the Bethlehem/Hebron tour . It was one of the best tours I've ever done. We had a very good guide, always ready to answer our questions (also the critical ones). The tour left such an impression to us, that one month later we are stiil talking about it. If you have the change to go on one... More

As an American woman traveling solo -- it was very important for me to visit Palestine and to see for myself. Green Olive Tours creates an incredible safe opportunity for you to visit and speak and experience Palestine. Our guide Amer was exceptional. Our tour was only two people -- so we had a very intimate experience as we explored... More

I did the Ramallah / Bethlehem tour and it was overall a fantastic experience. I don't typically do tours but made an exception due to a recommendation from a friend and due to the travel warnings in the area. The guide was fantastic - really fun, passionate and engaging. I learned a lot about the region and enjoyed the personal... More

Appreciated the "facts on the ground" from Palestinians' perspective. Gained a clearer understanding of what is happening in Hebron. Disturbing, heart-breaking, and needs to be seen and talked about.

While visiting relatives in Israel, I decided to explore some of the Palestinian areas. So much interest and perhaps misinformation about the Palestinians and their situation, so wanted to see for myself. A day trip not enough to have more than a superficial impression but I am very pleased that I went. Superb, low-key, small group tour with Green Olive... More

I am generally not a tour person. However, I took the Old City Tour, the Greater Jersualem Tour and a one day tour to Bethlehem. Noam, the tour coordinator immediately replied to my emails / queries and gave me clear advice. That is extremely appreciated! I love the philosophy of the Green Olive Tours which is looking to create bridges... More

We took a 9 day tour with Green Olive Tours. Prior to making the booking we deliberated as to whether we would get "value for money". We're now back home and can definitely recommend Green Olive tours: Israel/Palestine is so complicated you need people with local understanding to help you unravel the events. Green Olive not only provides a variety... More

This is one of the best tours I've ever taken. Had to wake up at 5:30 a.m. to catch a bus to get to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv to make it to the tour in time and it was totally worth it! Samer was an exceptional guide and he really did a great job breaking down the history of the... More
