Imagine floating in the Dead Sea, touring the holy sites, climbing Masada and visiting the Tent of Nations on the West Bank. Those are only some of the extraordinary experiences to be discovered on the Hands of Peace Multi-Narrative Tour of Israel and Palestine.

Accompanied by both Palestinian and Israeli guides throughout the tour, you’ll explore the Holy Land’s rich cultural and religious history, while diving deep into the region’s complex political realities. This approach is a favorite of anyone who is interested in the multiple and sometimes conflicting narratives that course throughout the region. Unlike other tours, you’ll connect with Palestinian and Israeli alumni and their families from Hands of Peace, offering a personal connection to explore shared values and build lasting relationships.

An Optional 5-Day Extension to Jordan will take you on the winding paths of Petra to view the amazing rock-cut architecture of this ancient trading post dating back two thousand years. You’ll enjoy the thrill of a Jeep tour in Wadi Rum, the warm hospitality of dinner with a local family, and strolling through unrivaled Roman ruins with an expert Jordanian guide.
