Excursão na margem oeste de Jerusalém
Vá para Qasr-el-Yahud, um local nas margens do rio onde se acredita que Jesus foi batizado por João Batista. Ouça atentamente enquanto seu guia explica mais sobre a importância bíblica desse lugar santo e, em seguida, continue até o local da antiga Jericó, que se acredita ser uma das cidades mais antigas do mundo. Explore ruínas fantasmagóricas descobertas pelos arqueólogos, algumas datando de 9.000 a.C.
Viaje até a cidade palestina de Ramallah, considerada a capital não oficial da margem oeste. Caminhe pelas animadas ruas e visite o túmulo do líder palestino Yasser Arafat, que foi sepultado em um mausoléu aqui em 2007.
Quando você chegar a Belém, desfrute de um almoço em estilo árabe em um restaurante local antes de explorar esta cidade santa. Veja a Igreja do nascimento, considerada o local onde Jesus nasceu, e visite a Gruta do Leite, cujas paredes supostamente tornaram-se brancas com uma gota do leite da Virgem Maria quando ela alimentava o menino Jesus. Passeie pela antiga cidade e pelo colorido mercado, e veja o Muro da Separação que divide a cidade de Israel.
Ao voltar, pare no Campo de Refugiados de Aida, criado na década de 1950. Visite seu vibrante centro de jovens para saber mais sobre as atividades que ele oferece para mulheres e crianças do acampamento antes de retornar à Jerusalém. Seu passeio termina com o desembarque no ponto de partida original.

This was our first visit to Israel. We wanted to learn as much as possible about the country and history and about significant biblical sites. Our visit would not have accomplished this without our visit to the West Bank. The tour was incredible. Our guide, Kamal, was funny and extremely informative. He is highly interactive (and we were grateful for the other guests’ knowledge of the Bible so they could more intelligently guess answers to his questions - it got us off the hook :). Our guide was Palestinian and his insights and perspective regarding his and his family’s lives as Palestinians living in Palestine (West Bank) will open your eyes, as will the tour itself. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in better understanding the very complex situation between the Israelis and Palestinians and for anyone interested in seeing first hand what life is like in Palestine. Among other things, you’ll see the oldest city in the world (Jericho), dip your feet in the Jordan river, see the birthplace of Jesus, and see, first hand, Israeli settlements in Palestine as you drive through the West Bank. An amazing experience that I will never forget. Brush up on your biblical knowledge of significant places in the Bible and a bit of the history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict before you go if you want to deepen your experience....or just show up (like we did) and you will learn a great deal. We had about 18 people on the tour in total and we were in a brand new vehicle, which was really nice, and our guide spoke excellent English. Thanks for the incredible tour.
We travelled on 8/1/19. We were made to feel safe, we were educated and looked after. The destinations were well selected, we enjoyed Ramallah and Arafat’s tomb. Our guide was very informative and the personal stories added to our learning. The guide made the tour! Thank you!
Great experience. Food was great. The lunch was in the tour guide’s home and his mom made awesome local food. Awesome tour guides. I highly recommend this tour!
While the locations were interesting there was not enough background on history. too much present day politics and not enough on the history of the locations. Also spent 1.5 hours at the Wall which, in my opinion, only merits 10-15 minutes. The restaurant for lunch was very good with excellent service. Our family took a vote and we are saying 3 stars because we wanted more history. The time spent at the Wall was not a good end to the tour either.
I would say beyond a shadow of doubt this is a MUST do!!! Make sure you don't sell yourself short by only staying in Israel. The sights and sounds of the West Bank were phenomenal!!! Palestine was awesome! The food on this trip was fantastic as well! It is a long day but the sights you get to see are once in a lifetime!!! We had a FANTASTIC tour guide and driver!!!
This was a great experience. Border crossing was fast and the Palestinian tour guide had a great sense of humor in explaining the conflict between Israel and Palestine. I was happy to visit the tomb of the late Palestine leader and talk to the solders guarding the tomb.
The trip was good. The bus needs to ensure the microphone works properly. Was hard to hear tour guide at times. Tour guide needs to stand and face passengers when talking. He had great stories. Oh and please dont rush passengers when visiting nativity in Bethlehem. The guide our tour guide used to lead nativity scene tried to discourage us from waiting in line. Said it would be 3 hours. The wait was less than an hour. Many of us wanted to see thane actual spot so please dont rush us. Thx
This was really a great tour! Tamer was friendly, informative, sassy, and balanced in his presentation. We saw a good mix of the political Ramallah, Arafat's tomb, separation wall, historical Jericho, and seasonal/religious Jordan River, Church of the Nativity. It was a small group, which made it easy to move around places and pleasant at lunch. Anyone who goes to Israel should try to see how the other half lives, and this tour is a good way to start.
