Two study tours and walking the Green Line 2009

See the situation on the ground and receive analysis from Israelis and Palestinians who work to see the end of the Occupation with a just and sustainable solution for people on both sides of the divide.
Visit Palestinian hospitals, clinics and teaching establishments. Have the opportunity to compare treatment offered in Israeli and Palestinian hospitals. Also meet key leaders and specialists from a variety of organisations working in the field of human rights and international law. Hear from the local people.
During this nine-day clinicians’ study tour at the beginning of May, stay in Bethlehem and East Jerusalem hotels and travel to the surrounding locality as well as to Hebron, Ramallah, Jaffa and Palestinian villages.

“It is always possible to comment on political situations in distant places but to do so with conviction needs an opportunity to come face to face with the realities of everyday life, and to meet people on both sides of the conflict. This tour enabled me to do just that with regard to the health care situation in the Occupied Territories.” Prof John Yudkin, London November 2008
The tour is being coordinated with Physicians for Human Rights – Israel, the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, the International Medical Educational Trust 2000 and British Doctors for Palestine. It is administered by Experience Travel Tours. Cost: £1223, incl. BA flights, full tour programme, hotel accommodation on half board basis sharing a twin-bedded en-suite rooms, tour leader, guides and tips.

In order to strengthen the voice of the international community, Experience Travel Tours encourages people to visit the Occupied Territories and Israel to be an eye-witness to the situation on the ground. No amount of reading, attending lectures or watching films can convey an accurate understanding of the “facts on the ground”, which are crucial to any program of advocacy. Our study tours bring visitors to meet with key people from both sides of the divide examining several aspects of life today in Israel, Jerusalem and Palestine. The tours provide a unique opportunity to gain first-hand, in-depth knowledge of some of the latest analysis.
Our next ten-day study tour takes place in mid May. Participants will stay in Bethlehem and East Jerusalem hotels with outings to Hebron, Ramallah, Ni’lin, the Judean Dessert, Lod, Jaffa and villages in the West Bank. Be guided by staff from the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD) and receive the latest political analysis. Also meet other organisations such as Defense for Children International, Badil, Wi’am, Machsom Watch, Zochrot and more. Visit The Future School for Girls in Beit Hanina and Bethlehem University. Cost: £1225 including BA flights, full tour programme, hotel accommodation on half board basis sharing a twin-bedded en-suite rooms, tour leader, guides and tips.

“For anyone concerned about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict the participation in such an extraordinarily well and comprehensively organized tour of ETT is a MUST.” Helga Dahne, Stuttgart November 2008

Established in 1999, Experience Travel Tours specialises in issue-based tours taking you to places you would not otherwise see, helping you understand the nature of the Occupation and what must be done to achieve a just peace in Israel and Palestine.
