Amazing experience. Eli shared so many insights and gave us a lot of important historical background. We were also able to meet with an Israeli settler and her talk was so interesting we all decided to take a later bus home! Mohamed and Tarek captivated us with their personal experiences and really brought to life the Palestinian view.

This Hebron Dual Narrative tour was very informative and offered great insight into this separated city. Unlike other tours this one was split in two. The first part of the day was with a Palestinian guide who gave her narrative and perspective on Hebron and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The second part was with an Israeli guide who gave the Israeli perspective. Because of this the trip to Hebron was nuanced and enabled us to form our own understanding of this complex city. Both guides were very kind and professional, thank you Leena and Eliyahu!

I have toured extensively in Israel over several decades, but had never visited Hebron. In part, this is because many (most) tours to Hebron go with a very specific and usually extreme (right or left) bias. I had no interest in either of those approaches. I feel so fortunate to have found the Dual Narrative tour that Abraham Hostel offers. Eliyahu Mclean, who conceived of the tour, was a truly excellent guide from Jerusalem and through the Jewish sites and into the Jewish area of the Cave of Machpelah. He approached all questions with a level of honesty and humor that made this very complicated topic understood by our varied group. The sites and people that we met with gave their own perspectives and were generally honest in acknowledging that there are other points of view. Our guide on the Palestinian side, Mohammed, was excellent as well. Sharing lunch in his home was a special added touch. Again - I can't say enough good about this tour. If you are someone who wants to learn, or someone who passionately loves one community or the other but still wants to learn about the alternative narrative on the opposing side, this is for you as well. Be prepared, though, it is an emotionally exhausting day as well!

This was a great tour and I really recommend it. We took public transport (tram and bus) to Hebron which was easy and comfortable. Our Israeli guide accompanied us and gave explanations on the journey to Hebron and delivered us to our Palestinian guide, then collected us again to guide us in the afternoon. Both guides gave reasonably balanced explanations and introduced us to people who live and work in Hebron. It was fascinating to see the differences in the various areas in the city.
Lunch was tasty and plentiful, provided by a Palestinian family.

There is nothing better than this, to be in person to hear both side of the stories, Eliyahu did a great job and he is amazingly and knowledgeable and very friendly. I am really thankful for his effort to put this tour together. He is such a gentlemen for letting Mohamed tell the stories first. The tour gave a good insight of the whole situation that the media does not tell. The opportunity to tour the area and historical tomb was great. I would strongly recommend the tour.

I found Eliyahu's tour very informative and inspiring. It really out the situation into perspective and gave me a sense of both sides of the Israeli Palestinian conflict. A very valuable experience, I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to understand the complexity and the confusion of this Middle East conflict.

I loved the tour. It was really insightful to go to Hebron and see the reality with my own eyes, and hear the stories directly from the people who live them daily. The dual narrative tour does what is expected from it and presents both the Israeli and the palestinian version of the conflict in a very interesting way. Both guys are extremely friendly and nice. Definitely recommend it.

Gives a good insight of both sides and an interesting tour around Hebron. Thanks to Mohammad and Eli for being great guides. I would have loved to also speak to some Palestinian residents of Tel Rumeida. I know there was probably not enough time for everything, so priorities are necessary. I recommend!!

Don't normally write reviews but feel compelled to because this ought to come with a PSA. Went on a Hebron "dual narrative" tour, expecting slightly biased narratives from settlers and Arab Palestinians. While most were under the impression the guide the group spends most of the day with would provide a more even-handed position, ours, Josh, told several utterly outrageous lies to exonerate Jewish nationalist extremists of acts of terrorism (he attributed the Hand in Hand firebombing to Muslims when it was carried out by Jewish extremists, and claimed the massacre of 29 unarmed worshipers in the Ibrahimi Mosque might have been preemptive self-defence against a pogrom, among other falsehoods, stand out the most). I spent most of my degree studying the conflict and knew enough to correct what he said to a few people who were sufficiently unknowledgeable to be otherwise taken in by his lies. I raised this concern with the Abraham tours, and they responded saying anything the guide says, no matter how extreme, falls under the banner of "narrative" and that's the point of the tour. However, claims of the kind exampled above go well beyond "narrative" into complete fiction designed to push an extreme militant Kahanist ideology. For Abraham tours to defend their employment of someone they know to be an apologist for terrorism is outrageous. They would not employ someone who defends Hamas' suicide bombings, and they should not be employing Josh.

Firstly, I will make some comment about Abraham Tours and then the tour we went on itself - the Hebron Dual Narrative Tour.

Abraham Tours:
* Excellent website with clear descriptions of what each tour involves and costs.
* Great communication when I had some questions.
* Easy to find just near Davidka Square, Jerusalem (Abraham Hostel)
* Great value tour considering we were on the go all day, and had transfers to and from Hebron.

Tour:
* This tour has two guides, roughly half a day each. We had Eliyahu in the morning and Mohammad in the afternoon.
* Each guide tells you about the various histories of their people (Jews and Muslims) related to this ancient city (Hebron) and also a lot about the current conflict between peoples in this region.
* The tour visits significant sites, especially the Cave of the Patriarchs where the tomb of Abraham is located. On the day we were there (two days before Yom Kippur) only Jews were allowed in to the holy site, which meant we witnessed Orthodox Jews praying in the Muslim mosque - surreal and incredible to say the least. Muslims have a similar monopoly over the site for ten days during Ramadan.
* We walked the streets of the old city to visit Jewish settlements and also the old markets where mainly Muslims live.
* We ate a hearty lunch in the home of Mohammad's parents and got to interact with their family.
* We had plenty of opportunity to listen, learn, reflect and question the situation (both historical and contemporary) in Israel and the disputed territories.

At not time did I feel unsafe or out of place on this tour. If education and information is what you're after, then this is the kind of tour for you. You will certainly come away with more questions than answers, especially after hearing both sides of the argument from an Orthodox Jew and a Muslim. This is really the point of difference of this tour perhaps compared to other tours that might claim to do similar things. For that reason, I could not recommend Abraham Tours and the Dual Narrative Hebron tour highly enough.
