While the world calls this the West Bank, the Judean Mountains are an area full of Jewish History. In fact, we the Jewish people take our name from this region which the Romans called Judea. I customize every tour to your interests and needs. Here are some of the sites that can be included in a tour of the Gush Etzion and Hebron area.

Sites You Can Include in this Tour:

There’s enough to do in this area to fill several days. Here are some samples of sites and attractions that can be integrated into a tour in this area. Usually there’s enough time in a full day tour to do 4-6 of these items.
