Been There – reviews of To Be There programmes
This was certainly the most amazing trip and experience of my life. I appreciate all your patience and I am very grateful for your help.
There were many moments that made this trip memorable. The overwhelming memory is the warmth and hospitality of the Palestinian people … The itinerary was very full and we covered a lot of ground … the highlight of the trip was just being able to ‘chat’ and share lunch with the family who we had supported when planting olive trees … Everything about this trip was superb and made it excellent value for money … I think the best reflection of how we feel our trip went is that we are already looking to return with the October programme.

The trip was very good … I really enjoyed it … It was clear that the tour is well planned and thought out. Each stop illustrated a point and showed something new.

The tour was amazing for me, super organized, a lot of information in an entertaining way communicated … My expectations were totally met, because it is so hard to get a geopolitical overview by yourself without a car and a well informed local in this hilly surroundings of Bethlehem and now I have a much clearer image in my head of what is going on by concrete examples.

Even if I had read a lot about the situation and knew many people from Palestine from before it was a very emotional and striking experience for me to actually see the physical signs of the occupation, the most obvious one of course being the wall. And I think the best feedback you could have is that I keep recommending people.

We all have a responsibility to educate ourselves on the subject of Palestine and “To Be There” is the best way to do it! Our learned, articulate, and spirited guide added historical detail to the geographical realities we experienced in the present, so that the beauty and trauma of this land came alive for us. The stories of Palestine will always travel with me.
