Overview
Delve into the fascinating West Bank on this enlightening full-day trip from Jerusalem. Traveling with a guide, see the fabled Biblical sites of Bethlehem and the spot where Jesus is said to have been baptized on the Jordan River. Explore the vibrant town of Ramallah, and see the tomb of the Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. A visit to the crumbled ruins of one of the world's oldest cities, Jericho, plus a tasty lunch and a stop at Aida Refugee Camp all add further memorable touches to this compelling tour.
Highlights
  • On a Jerusalem tour, learn about life in the West Bank
  • Includes a Palestinian-style lunch in a Bethlehem restaurant
  • Travel by climate-controlled vehicle to keep cool and comfortable
  • See sites of Biblical and historic importance
What to Expect
At a central location in Jerusalem, board a climate-controlled minivan for the trip to the West Bank. Upon arrival in the Palestinian community of Ramallah, walk through the town to see the tomb of Yasser Arafat, who once lead the Palestine Liberation Organization. You’ll visit the ancient ruins of Jericho, one of the world’s oldest cities, then pause at Qasr al-Yahud, the Jordan River site where Jesus is believed to have been baptized. Next, head to Bethlehem for a Palestinian lunch in a local restaurant. You’ll also visit the Church of the Nativity and the Milk Grotto, and then see the “separation wall” that divides the city from Israel before returning to Jerusalem.

A really interesting and full day tour of the West Bank, including Bethlehem, Ramallah and Jericho. The highlight of the tour was the amazing walled off hotel museum. We really recommend this tour.

Well.. 70% time of the tour you spend on a bus. It wouldn't be that bad, since the views of the desert are stunning, but our bus had annoyingly dirty windows!! :( The stops at the attractions take 15 minutes (!!) on average. Hurry! Hurry!...More

Abraham Tours offers a trip to Hebron. They also have a multi day trip option. I found the Ramallah visit quite rushed however

This tour is very safe. It is open to all nationalities, except for Israel passport holders (special rules for them entering occupied territories). You won’t be asked about your religion.
