Our Palestinian colleagues
Guiding in places under control of the Palestinian Authority (PA), aka Area A, like Bethlehem and Jericho will never be done by  an Amazing Jerusalem guide. The guide will be with you, but let the guiding be done by a Palestinian guide with a license from the PA. If you decide to go to such a place with another company, please ask them about their policy, Palestinian guides are not allowed to guide in Israel, refusing to use them on their own ground, to save a few dollars, is a practise that is still very common.
Kudos ang hugs from our Palestinian colleagues if you do.
