Join us for a magnificent unfiltered excursion into the Israeli Palestinian Conflict. Visit both sides, Arab and Settlers who live in unrecognized villages, speak with the inhabitants and touch the conflict without the media’s propaganda.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the most, if not the most famous conflict in the world today. But why in every media platform, political debate or street conversation; the conflict comes up?
Come along and check it yourself! We promise you all the media platforms, politicians or the UN cannot give you what we can.
An in-depth look.
The truth is that one cannot understand a situation without getting down and dirty, and believe us when we say this “conflict” has more than two sides to tell.
This is your chance to get up close and personal with the people behind the news in the most talked-about region in the world:
The Hebron Mountain Range in the South West Bank.
We’re going to pay a visit to a Palestinian Bedouin family AND the Jewish settlers.
Two different, separate worlds living door to door, fence to fence.
Even if you’ve explored a different culture or two in your travels, this tour will take you into the heart of one of a unique societies in the Middle East and will give an insight into the lives of the locals.
