Encounter Palestine Tour

We offer two tours. The first, featured here, explores the West Bank, where you will see the wall and checkpoints, meet with Palestinian and Israeli politicians, discuss the realities with Palestinians whose lives are blighted by occupation, and learn about the impact of Israeli settlements.

Our programme for tours

We stay in Bethlehem, a wonderful historic town with a good choice of street food and restaurants. Other highlights include the museums and Banksy’s Walled Off Hotel. We enjoy a packed itinerary, including expert briefings, seeing the Israeli Wall, checkpoints, and visiting communities struggling under the pressure of occupation.
