Our alternative tours programme includes in-depth study tours which go beyond the traditional tourist sites as the political realities that affect Palestinians and Israelis are explored. Participants witness the situation on both sides of the divide and travel to different geographical areas. Unique opportunities are provided to meet ICAHD staff and other key leaders to gain first-hand, in-depth knowledge and some of the latest analysis. Participants also meet extensively with Palestinians to hear their stories.
An overwhelming experience, in which one sees both the best and the worst of the human condition compressed into such a tiny region in space and time. One of the best things I have ever done. Tony J – New Zealand
I can’t imagine any way to spend ten days in the Occupied Territories and get a better or more valuable insight into what the Western media isn’t telling us about the plight of the Palestinian people. Nick S - Australia
I have no hesitation in recommending this tour. I have read extensively on the subject but nothing could prepare me for what I witnessed. The tour operators are professional and have a great deal of knowledge on the subject. Combined with the organizations and people that we met it provided me with a much greater understanding of the situation. It also provided me the knowledge and confidence to publicly speak on the issue and spread the message from the Occupied Palestinian territories whenever the opportunity presents itself. Mark E - Canada
The Tour schedule was put together brilliantly and with deep insight. There were opportunities for us to meet a number of Palestinians and support agencies, from which one could begin to understand something of the terrible reality of the Occupation – at least from an observer’s viewpoint. Interwoven with these events were informative talks, advice, debriefing and discussion sessions, and meetings with Israelis involved in the resistance struggles. Plus downtime in Palestinian cultural settings. The tour was sensitive, eclectic and powerful. An entirely unique experience. Thank you so much. Judy G – England
