Come experience the Dual Narrative trip that Forbes, CNN, and the United Nations have all praised!
Take a fresh look at an ancient land, with this groundbreaking multiple perspective tour of Israel and Palestine. Facilitated by two guides, one Israeli and one Palestinian, experience the sacred shrines, cosmopolitan cities, and scenic landscapes of this diverse region through the eyes of its residents. Beginning with the religious histories of Jerusalem, continuing into the villages of the West Bank, and ending on the shores of the Mediterranean, this tour offers travelers the opportunity to meet local politicians, artists, journalists and activists, learn about contrasting national narratives, and explore future prospects for justice, security, and peace in the region. With a unique approach that accesses contemporary issues through personal storytelling relationship-building, and facilitated discussions with conflict resolution professionals, the tour features a diverse array of guides and speakers—Israeli and Palestinian, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Druze, conservative, moderate and progressive. Discover how conflict affects environmental concerns in the Dead Sea Valley, enjoy home-cooked cuisine with local families, and enjoy bustling and colorful bazaars. With time for discussion, reflection, and fun, join us for this unique trip that both explores the complex issues facing Israel and Palestine, and celebrates the hospitality and vibrant cultures of her local communities.
