I’m a local person and I was amazed to learn new information about Bethlehem and about its market. Had a very interesting tour thanks to Nadine and Fadi, who are both highly passionate about what they do. Their warm and close relationships with market suppliers, adds up to the cozy and lovely atmosphere of the experience. Thanks a lot my dears, and will make sure that others, locals and internationals, enjoy the richness of what you kindly offer :)

Although I'm a local but I've been only a few times to the market 'souq', which is like a 15 minute walk! Once I heard about Farayek I was curious and excited to experience such a tour; a tour for food. Actually sharing delicious healthy food with other people in the tour is what made us become friends. And yet, being accompanied with amazing leaders who had everything organized, had opened my eyes even as a local to some info I would've never known about if I didn't join the tour. Totally recommend this tour to every individual! THANK YOU FARAYEK!!!!

We had read about the tour in the Sunday Times. It delivered ! chef Fadi gave a great show and tell in the markets of Bethlehem... so many tasty morsels as we went along, and then a taste of the season 3 course meal. Couldn’t recommend more highly.

The experience of touring the market of Bethlehem, accompanied by the best chef and the great team of Farayek, is definitely a must! Through the culinary tradition it's possible to reach an excellent approach to Palestinian identity and understand the Palestinian history. Farayek will give you the chance to go through every corner of the market by trying natural products. This experience ends with an amazing lunch prepared by a master of the kitchen, Fadi Kattan, who will use the products purchased during the walk. I strongly recommend this fantastic experience!
