383 From Tachana Merkazit (3rd floor) - it's bulletproof. Depends who you ask if it's safe or not. I think it is and have walked all the way from Mea'aas Hamachpela to Tel Rumeida, Avraham Avinu neighborhood and Tel Chevron. If you're OK walking through Damascus Gate then you should be fine with that - there are way less arabs walking through the streets there.
You can book a free tour on this website https://www.parks.org.il/en/reserve-park/tel-hebron/. You meet them in Chevron. There are plenty tours available.
Buses come quite infrequently - about every 60-90 minutes so make sure to check beforehand.

Mini TR:
I missed the 383 by a few minutes, so I ended up taking the 381. 381 makes more stops and it is a longer ride. It went all around Kiryat Arba before making its way to the Machpela. It was my first time in Kiryat Arba and until now I never realized that it is such a large, beautiful and modern place.
They ask for the Tav Yarok to get into the Machpela. I gave them my NYS Excelsior Pass and they accepted it. There were very few people - maybe 6-7 - inside the entire Machpela. There was no minyan for mincha.
I walked towards the cemetery. All stores, buildings were closed. Most of the time I was the only one there. Then a few Jewish kids showed up riding two donkeys. Kipa, tzitzis, payos, and two donkeys, it looked hilarious. Other kids who had no donkeys had to suffice riding bicycles.
I waited in vain for bus 381 at the bus stop next to the cemetery, it never showed up. I walked back to the Gutnick Center, had some pizza and ended up catching 381 an hour later from the Machpela.
I only saw a few Arabs, few visitors and mostly soldiers.
It was a great day trip, although I am sure I would have seen more with a guide.
expenses: 32 Shekels for the bus
30 shekels for pizza + drink
15 shekels for a Chevron key chain

I have a driver who wants to take me to Maarat Hamachpela and then to the Yam Hamelech from there.

Would anyone know if that would be safe now?

I don't think Hebron is any less safe than usual.
