We visited several ancient holy sites throughout our trip, which helped provide context for the region’s present day challenges. Our tour guides, arranged for us by HLT, were knowledgeable, friendly, and balanced in their explanation of the historical facts.
Our visit to Bethlehem was a highlight for many in our group. Throughout our stay in the West Bank we were treated to the outstanding hospitality of our hosts, and exposed to a variety of Israeli and Palestinian perspectives. These opportunities to engage with people on the ground made our experience especially memorable and meaningful.
The HLT staff ensured the comfort and safety of our group, and were very responsive to our requests from start to finish. We deeply value and support the critical work that HLT is doing to foster healing in the region. Thanks to the help of our friends at HLT, our trip proved to be a trans-formative experience for our participants. We look forward to working with them again in the future!
“What an amazing trip! I can't imagine one better planned than the enriching experience put together by the Holy Land Trust. It went beyond my expectations for a visit to the major Holy Sites, as well as on-site visits with individuals and organizations on both sides of the Israeli / Palestinian conflict. I highly recommend the services of the Holy Land Trust.” -- Tori, trip participant
