This full-day tour takes you to the gems of Israel’s western coast. Departing Jerusalem in an air-conditioned coach transfer to join the tour in Tel Aviv .

Head up the coast, via Tel Aviv, to the ancient Roman capital of Caesarea. The splendid harbor is located about halfway between Haifa and Tel Aviv and has a long and extraordinary history. Developed from a modest Phoenician port by King Herod into one of the grandest cities of Palestine, it survived until the 13th-Century when the Baybars of Egypt destroyed it.

The ruins are impressive and include a mighty aqueduct and one of the largest amphitheaters of the Roman era. Take a leisurely walking tour of the archaeological excavations before continuing up the coast to Haifa.

Israel’s 3rd city boasts panoramic views of the Mediterranean and the city itself from one of its most significant sites, the Baha’i Gardens in the Baha’i World Center. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will have your photo opportunity and take in the view before proceeding to Rosh Hanikra.

Explore the limestone grottoes of Rosh Hanikra on the border with Lebanon. View the beautiful white chalk cliffs facing the sea. continue to Acre at the northern extremity of Haifa Bay.

One of the oldest continuously inhabited sites in the Western Galilee, the city’s story is as fascinating as it is long, and you will have time to wander through streets that have seen the footfall of Greeks, Byzantines, Arab Crusaders, Ottomans and the British.

Great trip, but felt rushed.

The sights were quite nice, but I felt that the guide rushed us through everything. As always there were people holding her up. My previous few days was with a West Bank Muslim guide so hearing the Israel guides version was interesting. Would have liked some more time at Hafia.

It’s what it says on the tin-great tour, great guide

Fantastic tour-visiting those places are highly recommended for anyone who is into history and archaeology. There aren’t many places where you can see roman mosaic and crusader fortresses at the very same spots. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, really enjoyed listening to the history of Israel. One thing that was a bit odd for a european: at the end of the tour we felt like we were pushed for tips a bit too harshly. But other than that it was a genuinely fantastic and very enjoyable tour.

Interesting places, guide needed better people skills

We had been on a fantastic tour with the same company earlier in the week. Unfortunately, this tour was not as good because the guide’s manner was not conducive to helping us learn about the places. If we asked questions we were put down and quite frankly made to feel a bit daft. The places were amazing, but I think the trip would have been much better if the guide had a better attitude. I contacted the company by email after the trip, but have not heard back from them. It is a shame because we had a wonderful guide and wonderful trip previously.
