This will be an amazing 11-day trip with our friends at Zaytoun based in the kitchens, restaurants, and markets of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nablus and Nazareth, where you can begin to understand the issues around the kitchen table.

“You can disagree about the facts, but you can’t argue with my taste buds.” Taste of Palestine participant

What you need to know
Change The Record

Our Palestine travel programme is a vital part of our Change The Record campaign with its call for full equal rights for everyone who calls Palestine/Israel home. This trip will include time talking through some simple ways in which participants can respond to what they have experienced and we will provide opportunities for people to explore this further once they have returned home.

We closely monitor the advice and guidance on travelling to Israel and the West Bank. If the guidance changes, we will adjust the trip accordingly as the safety and well-being of participants is of paramount importance to us. 

Offsetting Emissions

Amos Trust is very conscious of the environmental impact of flying. We believe that the importance of our travel programme in promoting Palestinian rights warrants these flights, and we seek to ensure that we make the best possible use of them.

We offset the carbon burnt on our trips through a tree-planting programme with our Nicaraguan partners CEPAD, and offer all participants the chance to do the same. A return flight from London Heathrow to Ben Guirion airport in Tel Aviv emits approximately 1.2 tonnes of CO2. We calculate the full carbon compensation cost for this journey to be £30.
