Hebron Day Trip from Jerusalem: Israeli-Palestinian Sites
From $82.00
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Gain a better understanding of the conflict between Israel and Palestine on this dual-guided, full-day tour of Hebron in the West Bank. The city is divided into two sectors: one is controlled by the Palestinian National Authority and the other by Israel. Explore both, first with an Israeli-Jewish guide, then with a Palestinian guide. Learn about the struggles in this Middle Eastern city. Visit the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the world's most ancient Jewish site, explore various neighborhoods, speak with locals and enjoy lunch at a Palestinian family’s home.
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.

Excellent Tour - particularly Jewish side

This was a "Dual Narrative" tour - the morning led by a Jewish tour guide, the afternoon by a Palestinian Arab tour guide. I love history and am a "facts and figures" kind of person - so I much preferred the morning tour, where the...More

a closeup look into a complex situation

We went on the Hebron "dual narrative" tour with Eliyahu and Mohammed. It was very well organized and provided fascinating insights into the rich history of the city, complemented by firsthand accounts of the current situation from very differing perspectives.

Fascinating tour

The highlight here is the guiding and being told the narratives. Eliyahu took us through the Jewish history in great detail. He is incredibly knowledgeable. The visits to the relevant sites brought it alive. A few highlights included local graffiti, the Cave of the Patriarchs,...More
