Alternative tours

There are some alternative tours departing from Jerusalem. Most of them are operated in English.

Through those activities, you can study Palestinian life under the Israeli occupation from the view of the residents.

We recommend those tours because we can understand what is happening in Palestine, besides the holy places and ruins.

Destinations and prices vary. Check operators’ websites before coming.

For example, a half-day trip costs up to 200 NIS, full-day trip about 400 NIS.
