Detailed Program

Day 1

Welcome to Israel

Your tour guide will meet you at Ben Gurion airport and to celebrate your visit we’ll go directly to Neot Kedumim where you will have an opportunity to plant a tree and enjoy other activities.

The First Hebrew City

We begin our tour in Jaffa, one of the world's most ancient ports. Enjoy the art galleries, cafes, and boutique shops which are all part of today’s Jaffa scene.

We will continue to the first neighborhood of Tel Aviv, Neve Zedek. This pretty area is packed with beautiful buildings, arty boutiques and stories about the establishment of the ‘White City’. It is home to many artists, poets and intellectuals including the famous artist Nahum Guttman and author Shai Agnon. Tel Aviv is named the ‘White City’ due to the large number of buildings built in the unique form of the Bauhaus architecture. In fact, Tel Aviv has the highest number of Bauhaus buildings in a city in the world. Rothschild Boulevard is a great place to view and understand this type of architecture.

If it is Tuesday or Friday we can walk along to the Nachalat Binyamin craft market. The atmosphere is like a street party – with colorful stalls, cafes and street entertainment. You can pick up unique hand-made mementos from the artists themselves.

We then go back to the future with a visit to the Innovation Center, which tells the story of the Start-Up Nation and explains the Israeli narrative of innovation, technology, and entrepreneurship.

We’ll continue to explore the City of David – the “original” Jerusalem, where it all began. We’ll walk through a tunnel dug in Biblical times to bring water to Jerusalem – it was engineered so well that it still works today (pending weather conditions prepare to get wet or walk the dry tunnel) or walk through the more recently discovered Pilgrims Tunnels which will take you from the City of David to the Southern Wall excavations near Robinson's Arch.

Following a spiritual visit to the Western Wall we’ll go on to tour the Jewish Quarter, to see the Cardo, an 1800-year-old shopping mall still in use today and the Broad Wall, remains of the First Temple Period city wall. We will continue our walk through the Christian and Armenian quarters of the old city which will also include Mt Zion, the site of the Tomb of King David, who made Jerusalem his capital, and on the way experience the delights of the oriental bazaar - admire the wares, taste the delicacies, and smell the spices.

Masada Rocks and the Lowest Place on Earth

After breakfast, we’ll drive to the Dead Sea and soak up the relaxing, ethereal atmosphere of the area before arriving at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Masada. We’ll take the cable car up to this ancient fortress, built by King Herod. It’s a most amazing experience to wander around the ruins and hear the stories of determination and heroism.

Lunch will be at one of the hotels on the banks of the Dead Sea and afterward, you’ll have a chance to experience floating on your back on the lowest, saltiest body of water on earth. It is an incredible natural phenomenon and “swimming” in the Dead Sea is one of those experiences that cannot be put in words – you just have to try.

This magical experience combines the past and the present with bringing to life the Biblical stories of Kind David and Jerusalem using the most powerful modern technologies available.
