Green Olive Tours has departures from Ramallah, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, & Tel Aviv. The company is a cooperative of Israelis and Palestinians, and is a social enterprise focusing on cultural and people-to-people experiences in Palestine an Israel, visiting religious and historical sites, villages, refugee camps, and off-the–beaten track locations.

Our guides are knowledgeable and illuminate the culture, politics and history of the Palestinian and Israeli people. Each day-trip is unique. You might find yourself having lunch with a Palestinian or Bedouin family one day, then meeting a Samaritan priest the next. We offer daily tours and multi-day experiences that include home stays in Bethlehem and Palestinian villages. Our tours benefit the local people.

Green Olive have extremely skilled tour guides who will take care of you, but open your eyes to the situation in the West Bank. You will get to see all the places of historical interest, of which there are many, while also seeing the existing conditions for local residents. This area is no Gaza and completely safe for tourists and... More

I took two tours with Green Olive while staying in Jerusalem and they were both 100% worth it. Eye-opening and honest. Would recommend this to all travellers that are curious about understanding the region.

I took a few of the tours with them: Tel Aviv all day tour, Hebron, Nablus & Jenin, Bethlehem and Jerusalem. All tours are informative, try to escape from the tourist traps and the guides are more than eager to answer any of... More

They tour opened my eyes to the brutal reality of... More

I toured Bethlehem and Hebron. It was fascinating. Our guide was very informative and very upfront with his opinions on the political situation. I highly recommend this for tourists who are mostly seeing the Israeli side of things, to get an authentic Palestinian viewpoint.

Recently took the Gaza tour. A good informative tour, the high point of which was a photo op at the Gaza separation wall. Also the rocket museum in downtown Sderot was incredible. We went on a slow day, but did get to talk to some NGO personnel who were coming and going from Gaza and that was insightful. This is... More

We contacted Green Olive Tours after checking the reviews on a quite a few tour places. We were pleasantly surprised when a brand new bus arrived to take us on our tour. Compliments to our driver for the safe and courteous transport. Our first tour guided spoke very fluent English and was able to answer all our questions. Many thanks... More
