Visit Palestine: Tourism, Travel and Tour guides
Show Notes

This week we finish the last semester of the tour guide program at the Bethlehem Bible College.  With twenty Palestinian students I have been studying for two years to get the tour guide diploma. This diploma will allow us to apply for the exam of the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism. If we pass that exam then we will become licensed tour guides.

In this episode you can listen to our program manager and teacher Haytham Dieck and ten of the tour guides students who are graduating from the Bible College.  They tell you about their favorite places to visit in Palestine and their passion for the history and heritage of their country. Most of the conversations with the students were recorded during a walk around Bethlehem.

We hope that soon it will be possible again for individual tourists to come and visit Palestine. If YOU are interested to visit us, write an e-mail if you want help to plan your visit or if you would like to register for a (tailor-made) program. We are hopeful that several people will join in the end of October for the olive harvest season and it would be great to get a group of travelers together to organize some tours and activities.
