Discover Bethlehem, learn about the history, heritage and the reality of daily life under military occupation.
Kristel is a tour guide and historian and she produces a weekly podcast called Stories from Palestine. The tour takes you to the Shepherds fields in Beit Sahour, a coffee stop at Singer Cafe, the old city of Bethlehem with the Star Street and the Nativity Church, both of which are on the UNESCO world heritage list, the Milk Grotto where Mary nursed baby Jesus and miracles happen! And then we visit the Walled Off Hotel, a project by graffiti artist Banksy, we see the wall and its impact on the locals in Bethlehem and we visit Aida refugee camp. During the tour Kristel will introduce you to the Palestinians from Bethlehem and you can hear their stories.
