This trip aims to give you an exciting, diverse and well-rounded experience of a country’s cuisine. While we endeavour to cater for specific dietary requirements (let us know in advance), some meals and food activities are set in advance and may be difficult to adjust. In many countries dietary restrictions are not common or well understood. Come with an open mind and open mouth, and you won’t be disappointed!
The West Bank is full of welcoming people, markets and food. It's also one of separation and hardship, however, so crossing through the area can be confronting.
This is a politically sensitive region, and we do our best to provide a balanced overview. We ask that travellers keep an open mind when they visit.
