Palestinian city circled by the wall, checkpoints and Jewish settlements
Ramallah is the cultural, commercial and governmental hub of the Palestinian Territories, alive with liberalism and intellectualism. It is a loud, vibrant city from its historic market to its chaotic bus station and its hip downtown to its towering, glamorous hotels. Almost operating within its own bubble, Ramallah is an eclectic hub of activity and continues to evolve with each day. Many of its residents are refugee families from Jerusalem and elsewhere in Palestine, who were forced to seek new lives in Ramallah and in doing so made it the Palestinian Authority's de facto capital.
The tour will discover Ramallah city modern and vibrant life, and around the refugee camps, as well the paradoxical reality of walls, fences, checkpoints and Jewish settlements.

Bassam was an excellent guide, he went above and beyond what we expected of him. We opted for a walking tour of Ramallah where he tailored the trip to our needs and interests, was flexible with start and end times and made us feel comfortable and relaxed during the tour. Highlights include: political and geographic info, British mandate era house tour, Yasser Arafat mausoleum and museum, old city tour, refugee camp tour by refugee family. All 6 of us had an fantastic and insightful day. Highly recommended
