1. Galilee Culinary Tour: Full-Day Including Cooking Class
This full-day culinary tour mixes the old with the new. You’ll visit an organic winery that’s located next to a 300-year-old olive press. See hand-made chocolates produced just 5 miles away from a village where you’ll learn to prepare authentic Galilean Arab foods as they’ve been prepared for hundreds of years. The Galilee is often described as the Provence or Tuscany of Israel. The region is rural, green, and boasts top quality, locally grown agricultural produce. Olives, olive oil, fruits, and vegetables have been staples since biblical days. In the past few years numerous small boutique businesses have emerged, producing gourmet products ranging from cheeses, meats, breads and conserves, to beers, wines, and liqueurs. A typical trip to Israel doesn’t usually include an opportunity to meet Israelis in their homes in the Galilee and learn about their food and culture. On this unique excursion, you’ll learn how they've lived for hundreds of years and how they live today. Your guide will show you a slice of Israel that is authentic, interesting, and different to what most tourists see.
