Detailed Description

After being picked up in Jerusalem, you will pass through the settlement of Pisgat Ze’ev, and travel to Ramallah, entering through the checkpoint into the neighborhood of Kufr Akab. The Separation WALL divides the neighborhood from Jerusalem although it is part of the municipality and the residents pay city taxes. You’ll visit Arafat's Tomb and walk the streets of this bustling city, now the de-facto Capital for Palestinians in the West Bank

After departing Ramallah you’ll travel through the Judean Desert, passing the settlement of Ma’ale Adumim, and Bethany, the site of the Tomb of Lazarus. You’ll travel part of the way on a shared Israeli/Palestinian highway, and then through Wadi al-Na'ar on roads that are restricted to Palestinians (and tourists).

Through the southern West Bank en-route to Hebron you’ll see more Israeli settlements, Palestinian farms and villages, and learn about home demolitions and travel restrictions that the Israeli authorities place on Palestinians living in the area. Inside Hebron the group will visit the Ibrahimi Mosque, and the city's market where Israeli settler strongholds have squeezed the life out of the formerly thriving area. You will walk though the market with time for shopping.

Both cities are administered by the Palestinian Authority while being isolated from Jerusalem due to Israel's construction of the 'Separation Barrier', hundreds of checkpoints, 'Israeli only' roads, and restrictions on travel into Jerusalem.
