    I enjoyed walking The stations of the Cross leading to the Chirch of the Holy Sepulcher. The line to see the tomb of Jesus is quite long so I wasn't able to go in because we did not have enough time. Avi our tour guide speaks good English and he really made sure that the group stayed together.

    Journey across the rocky Judean Desert from Jerusalem. Apart from an adventure, you will see the cave where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered by a Bedouin shepherd boy. Apart from the numerous caves, there are many ancient monastic ruins dating back to the early Christian period.

    Myself and my friend took the Ramallah and Bethlehem day tour. Firstly, following our late booking the night before the tour which turned out to be to late, Green Olive kindly offered to organise a private tour for the following day, which they did not have to.

    Anas, our guide was extremely knowledgable about the history of the Palestine and the specifics of the legal and cultural situations on the ground, it was great to hear about the Israel-Palestine situation from a Palestinian perspective.

    Anas was also extremely personable, despite the tour lasting from about 08:30-15:30 (I believe this would have usually ran longer however it was Eid on the day of our tour meaning that roads were less busy) there was never a lull in conversation, Anas took us to a great shawarma spot in Bethlehem away from the touristy area, after asking us what we would like to eat, and provided us with water on a hot day.

    I can’t recommend this tour enough!

    We did the 'Introduction to Palestine: 4 Day Adventure' with Green Olive Tours.

    Highly recommend this company and their tours. Our package included taking part in some of their one-day tour groups, so we saw a wide variety of places and activities offered by them, and at every stage Green Olive made it worth our time and money.

    The real thing to commend are the guides, all super professional, informed, friendly and funny. Never once felt we were being rushed, often including some short detours if something caught our eye, and self-direction in terms of what shops we wanted to stop in or places to eat lunch. Nothing was too much trouble, and we were well informed all the way. If safety is a concern for you, I would also say we felt completely safe the whole time.

    We stayed in a family home in Palestine as part of the package, and this too was very welcoming and comfortable.

    This is a political tour, so do expect to find out in depth about the situation in Palestine from a Palestinian perspective. It may be challenging and at times include upsetting information, but that is the reality and Green Olive do not shy away from that. If you're looking to find out more about Israel/Palestine, its history, society, politics and people, then we would highly recommend!

    We are a pastor and wife from Grand Rapids Michigan. We hired Michael for the day and had a wonderful time with him. He is warm, personable, and very wonderful. His knowledge and understanding of the Bible and history helped our ministry in great ways. We highly recommend him.

    We enoyed the tour with the family of three being our guides. We felt part of the Palesitinian community. Value for the money was good.

    Apart from the visits to the grotto, churches, shepherds fields and the fences, we were treated with local delicacies. This was not at a store, so it we did not experience a dressed up sales event but rather an exchange of cultures.

    Yes, the tour ended at a local souvenir shop of the community, but this was limited to just 20 minutes with no pressure at all. And to our suprise at the end of the tour there wasn't even an opportunity to leave a tip.

    This was illustrative for the good vibe during the trip.

    Hazem was an amazing guide. He took us around the city. We felt very safe. He gave us a full understanding of the Palestinian Israeli conflict and told us a lot of amazing stories. He took us to the Vinyard restaurant, and we had Maklouba, a local Palestinian food. Highly recommended.

    I have gone on two tour with Saeid in the West Bank - specifically Area C and Bethlehem. For our first tour my sister and I didn't want to be the usual gawking tourists and religious sites and nothing else, so Saeid gave us a personalized tour. This tour included:

    - Organizing a taxi service to pick up and drop off, to and from, Jerusalem to meet him at the checkpoints.
    - Going through Area C leading into the desert to meet with an incredible Bedouin family who was generous with sharing their summer home with us and their tea, serious coffee, and fresh lebneh and yogurt from their own goats.
    - A 4x4 jeep safari-esque drive through the desert that only Hanan, our Bedouin family driver, clearly showed us that the Bedouin people are the only ones who could navigate that terrain. Leading up to the most incredible high spot overlooking the dead sea and Jordan.
    - A visit to the Mercaz Karama, The Dignity Center.
    - A driving tour through the settlements in Area C, including Gush Etzion.
    - A big lunch in Bethlehem, followed by a walking tour by the Wall, UNWRA Aida refugee camp and the Banksy Hotel.

    When I returned a few years later end of 2022 with a friend, Saeid was the first person I called. This tour included:

    - By request, another 4x4 jeep ride through the desert with tea made right there at our favorite spot on the cliffs overlooking the dead sea again. (It was so worth going back twice) Standing in the back of the jeep, wind in my hair, sand as far as the eye can see. One of the best things ever.
    - A nice hike that he led through the tunnels to the top of the Herodion Palace for some wonderful views and history
    - Church of the nativity (my friend wished to go) but with a nice stop out at the cafe and craft shops around the area.

    Of course, all of this is just a nutshell of what we did on the amazing tours that Saeed put together for us. On a personal note, I found Saeed to be kind, thoughtful, open, protective, and just a pleasure to be with. Support locals, and support bighearted people like Saeid who believes in all peoples' dignity, Jews and Muslims and everyone. I recommend him and his personalized tours greatly - even if you do just want to visit the religious sites. 😉

    I didn’t know what this tour is going to cover so I also booked a Full-Day Bethlehem, Jericho, and Jordan River Tour on a previous day. It turned this West Bank tour cover all sights of previous day’s tour plus more. It covers West Bank neighborhoods, Ramallah, Palestinian street art, yasser arafat mausoleum besides church of nativity, Jericho and Jordan river. The guides are excellent.

    We booked a trip with Dani based off finding him online and we are glad we decided to make the trip with him.

    He picked us up from the bus station and proved to be a friendly bubbly and knowledgeable guide.

    Hebron was an eye opening experience and we were very glad we went and got to see what people are experiencing day to day. We won't spoil it but if you have the time definitely go check it out with Dani.

    We loved the little touches with the food stops and would highly recommend his service to others.

    For what you pay vs doing a group tour with lots of people it's a no brainer to book a private tour with this great guide!

    Tour operator Gadi was friendly, extremely knowledgeable and accommodating throughout our private tour. His knowledge of Jerusalem was exceptional and his way of incorporating many viewpoints/religions/cultures was very respectful and greatly appreciated. He knew just how to go through Jerusalem to see the most, with short cuts and special side trips. Our driver was also accommodating even stopping and getting us umbrellas when it threatened rain. He dropped Gadi off and took us to meet our guide Saed in Bethlehem and then returned us to Gadi afterwards. He knew how to avoid traffic well on our return home. Saed was also friendly and knowledgeable and helped us obtain a particular souvenir we were looking for in Bethlehem.

    Incredible experience!! From planning the trip to the tours and coordinating with the team, Green Olives were amazing and accommodating.

    The tours provided all the relevant context of the occupation of Palestine, which is essential to understand the current situation. These were backed by facts and stories and personal experiences of the tour guides who shared how they continue to live under oppression and apartheid.

    Our experience with Yamen in the west bank was incredible, as a local of Bethlehem he provided an essential personal touch to the experience. You felt you were with a local hero was committed to supporting Palestinians in need and in the refugee camps. Very positive energy and accommodating, and strong understanding of the history but also shared the small details that impact palestinian livelihood.

    Alaa, who was our driver throughout the trip, was also very impressive with his history and facts. He shared his experiences which really deepens your understanding of how palestinians are living under the brutal occupation.

    Overall, hats off to Green Olive tours. Their mandate in tours is very clear and plays a vital role on the question of Palestine. Their planning is flexible and seamless, they make everything easy for you from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. The staff are incredible, friendly and go above and beyond on your trip.

    100% recommend and essential to experience to truly understand the truth and correct the narrative on the illegal occupation. Thank you Green Olives!! Keep doing what you are doing.

    I highly recommend this tour for Bethlehem and Dead Sea. The tours run by Judah Tours and they communicate well. The buses start on time and the guide Elias was funny, very knowledgeable. One of the best tour guide we had in Israel. You can bring towel from hotel because they charge 15 shekels for towel rental. The lunch choices were chicken shawarma (40 shekels) or falafel sandwiches. I like falafel sandwich (25 shekels). They both come with drinks. We went to olive wood factory, and the store was great. I bought some souvenirs and the store brought free gift for us to take like wooden crosses, Christmas ornaments. Thank you.
