Hi I am Mohammad from Palestine. My story begins in Couchsurfing in 2009 I hosted and showed my city to a lot of visitors and friends from then, I got more experience in knowing what people are interested in when traveling and visiting my city. . For me it's more than just a tour, it's more like being an ambassador to my country, so I started to work at hostels making Couchsurfing meetings and become a tour guide. I always think my city has a lot to offer more than just sightseeing. So lets discover my city together!

I wanted a feel for Ramallah, a taste of the city and of the people and culture. Often tours are just that, walking and pointing without the emotion and personal experience of the guide offering nuance and flavor. This was the opposite of that. Of course, it is difficult to much in a few hours, but Mohammed helped me to see him, who he is and his city through his eyes. I loved it.

A spirited dive into Ramallah and Al-Bireh. Mohammad first asked if we would like to learn about the culture, the food, the politics, the history or all of the above. I learned a lot about the differences between the two places, about the different foods at the markets, the geographical layout of the 'twin cities' and the politics by which they rub along together, from a century ago to present day. A really in-depth discovery full of valuable information, most of which did not feature in my guide book at all. Highly recommended.
