This visit is a must to more fully understand the Israeli-Palestine situation. It's so much richer than just seeing Bethlehem as a half-day from Jerusalem. Our tour guide was well-informed and candid. Seeing "the wall" is stunning (stop at the Banksy museum store while there). The biblical sites are fine and in my opinion pale in comparison to driving through the countryside, seeing the Bedouins and getting a sense of how different conditions on the ground are. I was concerned the tour would feel exploitative, like visiting the reservations of Native Americans in the US but it wasn't like that at all. I am so glad I did it. Side note, the temperature was much chillier than in Tel Aviv so check the forecast and plan accordingly.

Very nice day, very good meal, we visited the West Bank in very good conditions. Jéricho, Ramallah, Bethleem and the wall ... The very competent guide but for us French it is very difficult to understand his English. ... To note sometimes a humor on his part a little "limit". But overall a very nice day. What was missing was a stop in the shops of Bethlehem for about half an hour. What was not bine is that we had to pay a taxi to get to the meeting point !!! the other excursions that we did during the week, we were picked up near our hotel. l0 we had to pay and make 4 km !!! to get to the meeting point.
