Overview

My free walking is a personal initiative that started in January 2015. To see the city of Bethlehem and any other city in the West-bank, to educate yourself about the political, cultural, and historical aspects of the region please join us every Monday at 11 - 13:30 for the free tour, or on Thursday and Saturday for the group tour on the same hours which is gonna cost 75 Shekels pp, the rest of the days are open for private tours across the west-bank. The free tour is based on donations so your generous donations are highly recomended. minimum number of participants the group and free tours is 3, otherwise we have to get to an agreement, make sure to check our website for any changes and make sure to confirm your reservation either through freebawt.weebly.com (Email-Whatsapp). Transportation can be organized from and to any place in the holy-land, we also organize hiking, camping and many other fun activities. Contact us and I promise you will never regret it.
