Travel from Jordan

Im going to Jordan, 10th-23rd November. I would like to do a 3-4 day tour in Palestine while im there. Is it easy enough to leave and return to Jordan.

Can anyone recommend a tour company that does short tours.

Hello Ela,

It's easy to travel between Jordan and Palestine. While in Palestine you can visit Bethlehem, Jericho, Hebron, Nablus, Taybeh, Ramallah and other cities.

A good company that does daily and private tours is this one:

toursinenglish.com does get good reviews. Just note that they are political in nature in that they don't take a balanced view towards the Israeli/Arab conflict. I'm not saying not to use them just wanted to let you know because if you're not looking for that point of view you would want to avoid them.

Abraham Tours (from the Abraham Hostel in Jerusalem) offers a 1 day dual narrative tour of Hebron. Here you would get to see both sides of the conflict.

I am now making arrangements to go into the West Bank to do research on collective trauma in a couple of days, and I have been told by a couple of very well connected people in the West Bank, who regularly arrange tours, that it is not safe to travel to Hebron, Nablus, and Jenin and that only Jerusalem and Bethlehem are safe. One suggested that even there it would be ideal to delay the trip for a week or two, which at this stage will cost me significantly. The Israeli Defense Force raids and curfews are just too extreme now. But I am also wondering if their aggressions have inflamed Palestinian frustrations in such a way as to also present travel dangers. Thanks for any helpful tips you can offer.

Israel proper is safe, including Jerusalem (which is not in the West Bank).

I would postpone a trip if you plan going to multiple cities, the Israeli security forces are searching for the three Israeli teenagers whom were kidnapped a week ago, so you might be faced with a lot of extra delays and checking when moving around. Naturally, the searching can also cause frictions from Palestinians.
