Tour description

The free walking tour begins at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. We'll explore the church's exterior and take photos. Continuing to Aftim Restaurant, famous for its falafel, I'll share insights about the area. You can even try the delicious food. Walking along Al-Mahd Street in the old town, I'll discuss the region's history and current circumstances. Our next stop is the occupation apartheid wall, adorned with drawings. At The Walled Off Hotel, housing Banksy's art, I'll explain its significance. The tour ends conveniently in the city center. The focus is on history and culture, not religion. I'll stay connected and help lost tourists find their way.
No need to worry about getting lost – the tour concludes right next to the hotel. Stay connected with me, and I'll make sure everyone finds their way and leaves with unforgettable memories! 🙌🫶

We are 4 Irish girls and had a fantastic tour with Ghadeer. She was so informative and knowledgable. She had a great understanding of the history and culture of Palestine and her English was perfect to communicate it to us. She answered all our questions. She brought us to a lovely spot for lunch and viewpoint as well! Would highly recommend to anyone travelling into Palestine.

Ghadeer is an amazing guide. She is warm to be around and speaks perfect English. She has a deep knowledge that she is happy to share - not only about life in Bethlehem, but Palestine in general. Would definitely recommend a tour with Ghadeer!
