What To Expect - Gaza Strip Envelope Private Tour

This Private Tour in the Gaza Envelope is designed to give participants a deeper understanding not just of the event of October 7th but the conflict between Israel and Hamas since 2006 Beginning the day, we will drive south along the coast, past Ashkelon and Ashdod, towards Israel’s border with Gaza and view the separation fence.

Arriving at Netiv HaAsara, a moshav attacked by militants that day, we will view the Erez crossing, where up to 20,000 Palestinian workers would pass through each day, en route to work in Israel. From there, we will journey onto Sderot and tour the city, looking at areas particularly and the subsequent street battles between local Israelis and militants.

Continuing south, we'll arrive at Nahal Oz, where both the Military Base and the kibbutz’s perimeter wall were breached. After lunch at one of the local kibbutzim, we will travel onto Kibbutz Be’eri, heavily impacted, walk around the remains of burned-out homes and hear stories of those who witnessed these tragic events.

Afterward, we will travel on to Rei’m, the site of the Nova Festival massacre, where around 340 young people were slaughtered. The area has now been cleared and we will tour the memorials to the victims, each of whom has been given a name and photograph.

Following on, we will visit an ancient synagogue close to Nirim, dating back to 5 BCE and look at its magnificent mosaic floor, then continue onto Ofakim and walk the ‘Path of the Heroes’. We will learn the story of Rachel, one of the town’s heroines, who managed to survive death that day by virtue of her extraordinary resourcefulness.

Finally, heading back north, we’ll stop at Moshav Tekuma, to observe what is now a ‘car graveyard’, full of motor vehicles that were set alight that day.
