We had an unforgettable experience on this tour with our local guide Hazem.
From the beginning, all communications with Hazem were prompt, clear and professional. It must also be noted that we booked this tour on a whim the day before and Hazem was quick to respond and had it organised - for this, among many other aspects, we are grateful to him.
We managed to cover all the listed places in the itinerary and we even had a lovely local lunch in Bethlehem. Hazem was very patient with us as we took time to purchase items in some stores - we never felt rushed. He is also clearly well known in the area as he greets and is greeted by locals and other tour guides. A special shoutout to Bassem at the Olive Wood Factory who made us feel right at home as a fellow Kiwi.
Hazem is excellent and very deserving of his 5* rating. He is open, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about his country, culture and history. His first-hand experiences are invaluable for a tour of this nature. We really appreciated the care he took when taking us around Hebron and Bethlehem; we felt completely safe and at ease with him.
We cannot recommend this tour enough - this was one of the best tours we have been on and we would book again through Discover Palestine in a heartbeat. We would like to thank Hazem from the bottom of our hearts for being a wonderful host, guide and friend. Hope to see you again in the future, Hazem. Many thanks for everything.
