Make your way to a central location in Jerusalem, then board a climate-controlled minivan for the trip to the West Bank.
You’ll pause at Qasr-al-Yahud, the Jordan River site where Jesus is believed to have been baptized, and visit the ancient ruins of Jericho, among the world’s oldest cities. Upon arrival in the Palestinian community of Ramallah, walk through the town to see the tomb of Yasser Arafat, who once lead the Palestinian Liberation Organization.
Next, head to Jerusalem for a Palestinian lunch in a local restaurant, visit the Church of the Nativity and the Milk Grotto, then see the “separation wall” that divides the city from Israel. Before returning to Jerusalem, tour the youth center at the Aida Camp, which was founded in 1950 and is partially surrounded by the West Bank Barrier.
