APAN (Australia Palestine Advocacy Network)

- Community Announcement -

2020 Study Tour to Palestine
26 January – 2 February 2020

APAN’s unique study tours witness, share and learn about Palestine and the Palestinian people through interactions with Palestinian and Israeli communities and experts, Australian Ambassadors, United Nations officials, human rights organisations, visits to Australian-funded aid projects and much more. If you want to learn about the myriad contemporary – and historical – issues of the modern Middle East, this Study Tour is for you.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A different kind of travel – An APAN study tour gets you beyond the headlines. Meeting extraordinary people in extraordinary places, you get to ask your own questions, debate and make up your own mind.

Our groups are small, averaging 8-12 people, allowing you the time and space to engage with the people and the issues, providing a more enriching travel experience.

You don’t need to be an expert in politics or foreign affairs to join us. APAN study tours are working tours designed for people with an active interest in Palestine, the Palestinian people and peace in the region. We provide pre-tour briefings and useful reading lists to help you get the most out of your experience.

We plan and operate all our tours – We don’t rely on destination tourist companies to do our work. We explore, research and set up all our own tour activities, and our expert consultants can help you get to wherever you wish to go in the region.

Value for money – APAN study tours are run at cost and come at one low fee. The tour fee includes your international economy-class airfare, in-country accommodation in your own single room (4 star bed & breakfast hotels), in-country transport, most meals, pre-departure briefing and information booklet, and access to the experts and experiences other tours don’t visit.

DETAILS

Tour cost: A$7,000 per person

A $200 non-refundable deposit is payable on registration.

Costs include one international economy-class airfare ex-nearest Australian capital city, in- country accommodation (4 star bed & breakfast hotels with your own single room), in-country transport, most meals, pre-departure briefing and information booklet.

Costs exclude Australian domestic airfares/accommodation/transport to your international flight and travel insurance. There will also be some optional day trips at minimal extra cost, such as to the Petra archaeological site in southern Jordan.
