Green Olive Tours has departures from Ramallah, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, & Tel Aviv. The company is a cooperative of Israelis and Palestinians, and is a social enterprise focusing on cultural and people-to-people experiences in Palestine an Israel, visiting religious and historical sites, villages, refugee camps, and off-the–beaten track locations.

Our guides are knowledgeable and illuminate the culture, politics and history of the Palestinian and Israeli people. Each day-trip is unique.

Did both tours , the settlement tour was half day Bethlehem/ Ramallah a full day . It was helpful to do both as we picked up two different perspectives . Both guides were helpful and frieTndly and the people we met enroute equally friendly .

We toured two full days with Green Olive Tours--one day in the Old City and East Jerusalem and the second day in the West Bank including Bethlehem and Hebron. Both tour groups were small leaving lots of space for questions and conversation and both guides - one Jewish and one Palestinian- were super knowledgeable without being the least bit boring....

As a neutral party to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, I felt I very much needed and lacked the perspective provided by the tours offered by Green Olive. I spent 2 days with them: first going to Jericho, Qumram, Dead Sea, and second to Bethlehem and Hebron. I have been deeply touched and disturbed and changed. As a foreigner, I was allowed... More

Thanks KooChoLondon. I am happy you took our tours. One small followup to your comments. Israelis are indeed allowed into most of the West Bank. Outside of East Jerusalem, there are about 350,000 Israelis living in West Bank Settlements and they are permitted to travel freely to and from Israel, and also within about 60% of the West Bank, known...

We did the one day tour of Bethlehem and Hebron. There were only three people on our tour so it was very personalized. Our tour guide was raised in Bethlehem and had a thorough knowledge of the area and its history. We visited a church, synagogue, and mosque so had exposure to multiple religious perspectives. This takes you to areas... More

Went on a one day bike tour around Jerusalem. It's difficult in Israel to get an objective tour about the politics of this country but this bike tour did the job pretty well. The guide was absolute amazing and got us through the most interesting neighborhoods (and checkpoints) which you don't get to see if you just do the inner... More

A few days ago I did a 1 day cycling tour around Jerusalem, including the Palestine territories. Our guide was great. He knew a lot and he changed the route a bit according to what interested us most. Would book again and would definitely recommend!

I went on the tour of Hebron- just Hebron. The idea of it was entirely to gain political perspective, not sightseeing. So we had an Israeli ex-military guide (not Breaking the Silence but similar perspective) whose name I can't remember, and a Palestinian guide named Mohammed (SP?). They traded off at points because there are places Palestinians cannot go, and... More
