We did a full day tour of Bethlehem, Mar Saba and Herodian. Hazem was an excellent guide. He was full of knowledge and interesting facts and his delivery of information kept us interested and engaged throughout the entire day. He was very open to all of our questions and patient whenever we wanted to spend some extra time at any sight. We were a bit nervous, as it was our first time visiting the country, and Hazem was very reassuring and made us feel safe. We would highly recommend him as a tour guide to anyone wanting to visit Bethlehem and it’s surrounds. Thank you for a wonderful day.

To say that this trip was eye-opening was an understatement. I was a staunch Christian but it wasn't the Church of Nativity that blew me away, it was the wilderness of Kidron Valley, the hospitality of the Palestine people, the contagious smiles of the street vendors and the small museum at the Walled Off Hotel that left a lasting impression. It's such a lovely and safe place. I am glad that I went and I will go again.

We were in Palestine for a few days over New Year's Eve 17/18 and Hazem was a great tour guide which introduced us in the history and culture of Bethlehem and the surroundings. He is very good informed and gave our trip a wonderfull atmosphere. After our trip we had a deeper understanding of the place and the people living there.

My small group of ladies and I recently took a tour of Palastine with Hazem. I wanted to understand the past and present history of the region from someone who has grown up there.

Hazem first off is a fun person to spend time with. He also has done a great job of building a tour that simultaneously gives visitors an overview of the history of the region, the current relevant information, hits the top sites, top foods, and leaves you ready to learn more. What I also liked about this tour is that Hazem invites local voices to share their own stories along the way. I would recommend anyone who likes to learn culture to book a tour with Hazem. In addition to the above, he was an excellent communicator from the first contact to the last.

We were connected to Hazem through a friend to see Palestine through the eyes of a Palestinian. While I read BBC News and Al Jazerra, I was overwhelmed by the stories of those living in Bethlehem and Hebron. Hazem did a marvelous job leading us around and showing us the sights.

We booked a private tour with Hazem. This was the best tour of our entire trip! We divided our day between the history/current events of Palestine and the religious history/locations of Bethlehem. Hazem is passionate about his country and is a great story teller/educator. He met us the minute we crossed the checkpoint and took great care of us the whole day! I’m often asked if we felt safe so I will share that we always felt save. I really enjoy the benefits of a private tour over being with 100 others. The private tour offers the chance to truly talk and get to know your guide. By the end of the day we felt we had made a friend in Palestine. I highly recommend Hazem as a guide, we wish we had met him earlier in our trip so we could have planned additional tours. Meeting others and understanding different cultures is why we travel and this experience will be one remember!

Literally the highlight of our trip. I can't believe there are only 22 reviews. Hazem is a hidden gem! I wish we could have been with him for a week. We had 2 full days in Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Hebron and Ramallah. He was so nice and kind, like a family member. He was super knowledgeable about the history of the area and the current status. I honestly can't say enough. The teens loved him too. I would love to go back for another tour. We traveled for 18 days and nothing compared with his tour. Both days we had a clean van with AC (group of 6), water, and a driver. It made it so nice to learn and discuss things while we drove, let alone the curb side pick up service. He recommended great stops that the family would enjoy and worked out an itinerary in advance based on what we were looking for. We stopped at great places for lunch and he recommended other places for dinner, shopping, etc. Book a tour, it was worth every penny. 10 stars!

Hazeem was excellent as a tour guide. He is considerate, careful and has a depth of sensitivity and understanding through which he is able to bring historical and human understanding to the area. It is helpful that he knows his way around and we were able to jump the line at critical points when, otherwise, we would have been waiting for hours. Not to be missed.

During our visit to Israel we were told that we could visit Palestine only if the conditions permitted.We were lucky and getting in touch with a driver who has the permission to drive into the Palestinian territory was not a problem.The Israel West Bank Barrier seperates Jerusalem from Palestine and along this wall has grown mistrust and mutual hatred.
Other than the churches in Bethlehem and Jericho just driving down the place gives you a feel of the place.Political posters and poverty all around makes you feel that there's a lot of difference between the two sides of the wall.We can only pray for Palestine...Let peace prevail!!!
