If you want to visit Israel, embrace also its complicated history and politics. Abu Hasan will explain it from a different perspective and show you places probably not mentioned in regular guidebooks. Daring and authentic.

Any trip to Jerusalem will be wonderful. There is so much history to absorb and retain. Keep your personal items close, travel with another if at all possible. Use your common sense and keep a positive attitude.
