      The absolute best experience and highlight of our trip
      Hazem is the most knowledgeable, engaging, and kind tour guide I've ever had. Our experience visiting these remarkable places would not have been the same without him. He is deeply knowledgable about politics, history, religion and is an incredible storyteller. It was so nice to be able to take our time and learn things at our leisure, stopping at different small places along the way. There are so many details about these holy and historical places that Hazem points out that are so fascinating and really demonstrate his knowledge. It is a very different experience than going with those big tour groups, which are often impersonal and you really don't learn as much. A private tour with Hazem is worth *every penny* and you will leave knowing so much more about Palestine and seeing places you would have never been to on your own. In addition to the Jericho and Bethlehem tours, we also did private tours of Nablus, Ramallah, and of Jerusalem's old city. A tour with Hazem is a MUST! He is really the best.

      Great day in Jerusalem and Bethlehem!
      Hazem was fantastic. So incredibly knowledgeable and made it such a great day. It was my birthday and it was well spent. It was hard to fit everything into one day but Hazem made sure I had all the high points it information. We hit it off well and by the end of the day, we decided we’re cousins. Would recommend Hazem to anyone!

      Bethlehem and Jerico
      Hazem was the perfect guide for our visit to Bethlehem and Jericho - gracious, welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable, besides being accommodating. Not only did we visit the historical religious sites of the Nativity and Shepherd’s Church, as well as the Jordan River, but sites in-between. We saw and lived actual history too along the way and between the Occupied Territory and Israel proper. Can’t thank enough, highly recommend.

      A unique and thought provoking day
      Thank you very much Hazem. We had a fascinating morning with you - we really appreciated your extensive knowledge about Bethlehem & Christianity. We also feel very grateful to have received such a clear, dignified and personal explanation about Palestinian history and current living conditions on the West Bank. We wish you and your family well Arohanui Juliet & Hamish

      Fantastic experience with amazing guide. A must-do tour!
      This tour was super interesting. Hazem knows a lot about the areas we visited and was accommodating to include other site visits in the tour on our request. He explained things in great detail and was fun to be with. We had many great laughs, but he also does not shy away from serious topics which gives you a different point of view on the Palestine-Israeli relationship in past and present. Super interesting tour and I highly recommend doing a tour with him. Thank you Hazem. We are still processing the overload of impressions and information.

      A great, informative experience
      We took a private half day tour of Bethlehem with Hazem in August 2023 meeting on the Palestinian side of check point 300. The bus and checkpoint crossing were very straightforward. Hazem is incredibly passionate, knowledgeable and open to any questions. We enjoyed an extremely informative tour, with great communication and flexibility from Hazem before and during. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Highly recommended

      Knowledgeable and enjoyable guide
      Hazem is a wonderful guide. We met him in Bethlehem for our Jericho and Jordan River tour. He provided a truly customized experience for us and was mindful of all the details (clean car, water, comfortable pace). My husband and I always forget to take pictures, but Hazem snapped a few photos of us and sent afterwards. It was a very thoughtful gift at the end of an enjoyable tour. We would book Hazem again for future tours.

      Happy and Sad
      Happy and Sad          A pilgrimage to Bethlehem is every Filipino's dream. Our dream came true last week and our guide, Hazem Bannouri gave us a very interesting insight about this city. An affable guy, he knows the history of the Church of the Nativity and Shepherd’s Field in Beit Sahour the by the palm of his hands. We are truly grateful to him. But, we also felt very sad when we visited the UN Aida Refugee Camp. We already knew that not all is well between Israel and Palestine, but seeing the realities of war 1st hand and innocent victims of this (children) made us very sad. My family and I will include Israel and Palestine in our prayers. Both are very wonderful countries and, we hope that true peace will come to this place someday. Incidentally, we Filipinos call this place, the Holy Land.  Shalom, Inshallah, God Bless! -George, Jennifer, Isabella and Aaron Hizon from Manila, Philippines

      Jericho, Hebron & Bethlehem Private Tour with Hazem Bannoura
      If you are looking for a wonderful, kind and knowledgeable local guide—Hazem Bannoura is truly an incredible guide. We were able to tour Bethlehem, Hebron & Jericho. His knowledge and love of history made the day so interesting. He was able to help us minimize lines in Bethlehem and since he grew up in Bethlehem knew of the perfect places for meals, hotels & was well liked by other guides and security personal we encountered. He is a very safe driver and gave us the tour we asked for. Taylor made for what we were interested in. Thank you Hazem. We will be using this tour guide again when we travel back to Israel next year.

      Getting to know how the life is in Bethlehem
      Hazem is a great guide, full of knowledge about the situation and the people here. He has a very reflected opinion and offers an interesting perspective on living here in an area full of people hating each other. He surely gives you a lot of insights into life in Bethlehem and the area. Surely not a classical tourist tour but if you want to hear what people actually think here, I would highly recommend going with him and talking with him.

      An amazing tour in Jericho and Palestine
      We spent a beautiful day in Palestine and, in our tour, we also visited Jericho with Hazem. I recommend everyone to schedule a guided tour with Hazem, an expert and prepared guide.

      Bethlehem walking/driving tour
      Hazem ably led my 69yo mother, and three of us on a driving/walking tour of Bethlehem with great care. Ensuring physical challenges on Mum were not tolling, he also allowed me to move ahead of the car with my DSLR. Much like a dismounted patrol and support vehicle, as we toured the wall, the streets and he told us of his stories in the city. Meanwhile the girls enjoyed the comfort of the car and Hazem’s knowledgeable narration. As a local of Bethlehem, it was humbling to know the long lineage his family had in the city. Some 1500 relatives still lived there. His kind approach to leading us was warm and provided a sense of security, in an otherwise tense surround. I would happily return for a longer tour with Hazem, to see more of the city. Definitely a “recommend” from me!

    My mother, sister and I did a day trip with Hazem and we could not recommend him enough. He is a wonderful, friendly and passionate guide.
    It was an incredible tour: insightful, interesting and importantly we felt safe the entire time. Hazem had an incredible amount of knowledge and was able to answer every one of our questions throughout the day.
    He also took us to one of the best places for lunch.
    Thank you so much for a wonderful day :) it was so lovely to meet you and spend the day exploring Bethlehem with you.

    We had a wonderful experience with Discover Palestine. Hazem was so incredibly helpful and showed us some of the most important and beautiful places we've ever seen. He was patient with us, incredibly responsive, and his knowledge about his country and its history is amazing. We are so grateful to Hazem for a memorable experience.

    My partner and I took a one day tour of Hebron and Bethlehem. We could not have been more fortunate to have Hazem as a guide. Hazem was incredibly knowledgeable, accommodating, and had command of his work. It was great to have Hazem lead and engage with the locals. You can tell that Hazem is well respected and that helped us have a great tour. We took a detour for food and they even had great admiration for Hazem. It was wonderful. We had a once in a lifetime trip and it could not have been possible without Hazem.

    One of the best tours we’ve ever taken. Hasam personalized our tour to include places tourists are usually unable to access. Occupied territories, places like Hebron and surrounding areas under complex access requirements. We had an extended day, including major Bethlehem sites. Hasam is an extremely experienced local, speaking perfect English. Well worth the cost. Also got us last minute into The Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem, helping us understand Palestinian refugee issues for the first time..

    Hazem is a very smart tourguide. He knows nearly everything about every single stone in Palestine and surrounded areas. It’s easy to talk with him and he is very good in explaining (sometimes in a funny way:)), because he is an excellent (and openminded!) Englishspeaker. Thank you so, so much for this unforgettable experience, Hazem.

    Loved every minute of the tour. My guide Hazem was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. The rich history and culture in the holy city is fascinating. I was not only amazed by the historical/biblical sites, but also was touched by the local Palestinians hospitality, how generous and welcoming they were. Thank you Hazem and your family for this wonderful experience. Highly recommended!

    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!
