Alternative Tours, Volunteering and Work Experience in Palestine and Israel

Many groups now run regular or occasional tours to Palestine and Israel for those who want to understand the conflict in the region. Some are day trips, suitable for those who are already in the region; others are more serious ventures organised by twinning groups, alternative travel agencies, solidarity groups and the like. Here is a listing of those we currently know about.

Have a look at the subpages to find out about a number of fascinating tours. But beware: the information on these pages may well be dated. Always follow through to the groups’ websites for the latest details.

And before doing that take a look at Bradt Guide Sarah Irvine’s November 2011 Guardian article 10 Highlights of Palestine. And (Aug 2012) Zochrot’s Guide to the Nakba – see Zochrot below). And, if you can bear it, and want to know about new ways of marketing tourism in Israel itself, take a look at our post Visit Israel: play at killing terrorists!
