This tour includes all the elements of the all-day tour to Hebron, plus a visit to the Palestinian village of Beit Ummar. The village is situated in the Gush Etzion settlement block about half-way between Jerusalem and Hebron. After leaving Jerusalem you'll travel to the west of Bethlehem, through a large and formidable checkpoint, and enter one of the most fertile areas of the southern West Bank. You'll see numerous settlements, Palestinian farms and villages.

On arrival at the village of Beit Ummar you'll meet Mousa abu Maria, a leader of the committee that runs the Center for Freedom and Justice in the village. You'll learn about their work in resisting the occupation through non-violent means, and take a tour of the village. You'll see the farmland that is being confiscated for settlement expansion, and view the nearby settlements from the villager's perspective. Then back to Mousa's home for lunch.

In Hebron you'll visit the the Ibrihimi Mosque (Abraham's Tomb) and walk the old city. You'll meet a Palestinian family and learn about the impact of the local settlers on their life. It is also possible to visit one of the famous Hebron glass workshops, or a local kafiya factory. There is flexibility on this private tour, and changes can be made to suite your needs.
