On your tour of Hebron with a licensed guide you will get the best perspective of current affairs in the Middle East. You will enter one of the holiest cities in Judaism and Islam, hear from both sides, and will get a balanced insight as to the problems, life in Hebron and what the people deal with every day.
The first part of the tour will be in the Jewish section of Hebron. On your tour, you will enter Hebron in a bullet-proof bus, visit the Tombs of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob, and Leah, also Adam and Eve, that are all said to be buried in a cave. Next, continue on to tour the neighborhoods of the Jewish settlers, the Avraham Avinu Quarter, and a restored synagogue. You will also visit the Museum that is about Jewish life in Hebron before the 1929 riots, the Beit Hadassah. In Beit Romano tour the Shavei Hevron Yeshiva and the hilltop of Tel Rumeida, the archeological site from the Bronze Age. You will also visit the tombs of Ruth and Jesse from the bible.
As you cross to the Palestinian side, a Palestinian guide will take over the tour and you will enter the busy city center. There is an option to enjoy a home cooked lunch, made by a Palestinian family. Then you will have a chance to speak with the locals and walk up to a rooftop to get a full view of the city. You will learn about the conditions and difficulties of the residents and shop owners and then tour the Muslim side of the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the Ibrahimi Mosque.
