What to expect

The unique Hebron dual narrative tour is renowned for exploring both perspectives and narratives of the complex Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in one of the most volatile and divided cities in the Middle East. Visit this special city, one of the four holy cities in Judaism and a sacred place in Islam.

The Hebron tour splits the day in two - you'll spend the morning with Jewish 'settlers' in the city, and the afternoon in the Palestinian part of the city. By hearing from both sides, this tour will give you a balanced insight into life in Hebron, the city of Abraham, and the site of the burial place of the Biblical Patriarchs and Matriarchs.

Leaving Jerusalem, you'll head south into the hills of Judea, arriving in 'H2', the Israeli controlled area of Hebron, the largest city in the West Bank in a bullet-proof settler bus. You will visit the divided Tomb of the Patriarchs, home to the symbolic tombs of Abraham, Sarah, Isaac, Rebecca, Jacob and Leah – even Adam and Eve –, all said to be buried in the cave beneath.

Next tour the Jewish 'settler' neighborhoods of the city, visiting the Avraham Avinu Quarter and restored synagogue, the Beit Hadassah museum about Jewish life in Hebron before the riots of 1929, and the 'Shavei Hevron Yeshiva' in Beit Romano. You'll also visit the hilltop Tel Rumeida, site of a Bronze Age archaeological site, army base, and the tomb of Ruth and Jesse from the Bible.

Crossing over into the Palestinian area, you'll be met by a Palestinian guide and enter the bustling city center. Enjoying an optional home cooked lunch with a Palestinian family, you will have the chance to speak with a variety of locals.

After lunch, you will climb on top of a family home for a rooftop view of the city, learn about the difficult conditions of Palestinian residents and shop owners living in close proximity to the nearby settlements, and visit the Muslim side of the Tomb of the Patriarchs, known as the Ibrahimi (Abraham's) Mosque.
