Went on a tour to Hebron with Yaniv. The present situation of the area is dismal and bleak. The guides merely present the situation to you but provide no solution nor hope for peace. Yaniv was able to get permission from two soldiers (doing military...More

Happy to have you along on the tour. 'One sided' - but of course. We present the issues through a prism of democracy and human rights, rather than through the strident nationalism that pervade some other tours. _____ Fred Schlomka, CEO
