Touching down in Tel Aviv, we begin our exciting 10-day Israel tour by exploring the many museums and attractions in this modern city with a unique mix of European and Middle Eastern influences.
As we make our way through the ancient land, we come across Biblical sites by the dozen, such as the city of Jaffa, the location that Jonah was swallowed by the whale.
We see Caesarea, the region once inhabited by Pontius Pilate, governor of Judea at the time of Jesus Christ and Tabgha, the place where Jesus performed the miracle of the loaves and fishes near the Sea of Galilee.
We see the site named in the Book of Revelations as the place for the coming Armageddon, where good and evil will fight in the final battle for mankind, to name but a few.
We see the remnants of 5,000-year-old early Bronze Age temples, underground Crusader cities, and stroll the streets of Jerusalem, where reminders of the three religions that shaped this part of the world - Islam, Judaism and Christianity - lie at every turn.
Edita M. (San Bruno, US)
I am very much impressed about this tour. Everyone liked my pictures that I've posted. I am lucky to see the Holy Land. I did a side sightseeing tour and went to Jericho - saw the Judean dessert (very surreal) and Church of Annunciation, and city tour. Plus, I understand about the West Bank, Golan Heights, life in the Kibbutz and especially about the life of Jesus and the bible. It is one of the tours to do in your lifetime. Lorna (tour leader) is very professional. Can explain the historical sights. Have a sense of humor. Very articulate. Fits well her personality.Thank You for all your help.

Our rating "Level 2" on this tour refers to its ambitious nature, full days, possibly some early starts, and plenty of time spent on your feet. Many sites visited are LARGE; surfaces are uneven and sloped, and stairs will factor into our visits; heat can also be a factor in some locations which can, over time, cause fatigue. If you rely heavily on a cane or any other mobility aid, we regret that this tour would not be suitable.
Though baggage handling is available throughout, you must still be able to fully manage yourself and your things, especially at airports.
