While this journey includes several multi-night stays, the itinerary is busy with long travel days and many visits, including longer walks in historic centres, often with rough surfaces and stairs, etc. We will visit areas in the West Bank, with political unrest.  If required, we will adjust the program to ensure the safety of all our group members. Guests must be active and in good physical condition to fully enjoy the journey.
