Israel Travel Tour Highlights
This comprehensive program is designed for those seeking an in-depth look at Israeli culture and history. An orientation tour in Tel Aviv, including a visit to the Diaspora Museum, will familiarize you with this thriving city. Depart for Tiberias, stopping en route at one of Israel’s premier archaeological sites in Caesarea, the port city of Haifa and the timeless city of Akko. From your base on the banks of the Sea of Galilee in Tiberias, visit important sites such as Upper Galilee, Golan, Nazareth, and Capernaum. From Tiberias, head to Jerusalem to tour the Old City, the Holocaust Museum, and the Mount of Olives. The next stop is the famous Dead Sea which is too salty for plants and fish to live, and can easily make any human buoyant. Explore the Qumran caves where the Dead Sea scrolls were discovered, visit a traditional nomadic Bedouin home and hike to the peak of Masada on the way to Eilat, Israel’s southernmost city. Spend three nights in Eilat, where you can relax and, if you wish, take an optional day trip into Jordan to visit the famous ruins at Petra.
