This was a really good tour in that we were able to learn a great deal, see the different sites and living conditions, and put it all in a historical context. It was put together in a very creative manner so that it could be clear and both the video and audio were sharp. The Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and the answers to the questions added to the experience. I would highly recommend supporting this group and if you want to learn about Palestine, sign up for a tour!

Took my first online tour with Green Olive Tour. The guide Alex was very sincere and the tour was very educational. A great entry point to understanding this highly complicated region. I look forward to joining a physical tour after COVID and definitely gonna educate myself through more of their online tours in the upcoming days. The participants are curious and we had good discussions. Felt like back to the classrooms again haha.

I have joined a number of virtual webinar day tours in the last two months. They are well done in terms of blending stills, video and live talk. This group balances the three key elements of Israel-Palestine - Jewish/Israeli, Palestinian and Muslim/Christian in their staff and in their tours. They also provide a variety of fair trade Palestinian goods such as famous Mejoul jumbo dates, olive oil products and beverages.

We spent four days in the West Bank with Green Olive Tours and it was a worthwhile experience. Our tour guides Yamin and Mohammed were wonderful. Yamin took care of our accommodation and needs during our stay and was so helpful. As a tour guide, he was upbeat, friendly and engaging. Mohammed was knowledgable and informative. Both of them provided a wealth of information on the Israeli-Palestinian situation that allowed for an in-depth perspective on the reality of living under occupation. We also had the privilege of staying with a Palestinian family for a couple of days and they made our stay so much more meaningful. I have been on many tours over the years but Green Olive stands out for me in terms of its unique educational and cultural experience. Overall, we learned a great deal during our time in the West Bank and would highly recommend Green Olive Tours on any visit to Israel.
