Why we chose this tour

Our Classic 8 Day Israel Package will take you to visit all of Israel’s highlights, from the depths of the Dead Sea to the heights of Masada and beyond. There is so much to do and see in Israel, and you’re not going to want to miss any of it. Feel connected to Jerusalem's holiness, discover the modern metropolis of Tel Aviv, and experience the beauty and history that is so engrained in this tiny yet magnificent country.


Our Classic 8 Day Israel Package is the ultimate Israel vacation. It encompasses all of the country’s top tourist attractions in one jam-packed, action-filled week of fun, adventure, learning, and raw beauty. Get your pen ready, because you’re about to cross off some big bucket-list items. Always dreamt of standing in front of the Western Wall or walking the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre? You’ll be doing all that and much more.

 

Israel is a land of contradictions, where one city completely negates the next. You’ll go from visiting one of the holiest cities in the world to eating world-class cuisine and partying it up in Israel’s most liberal city, Tel Aviv, the city that never sleeps. You’ll explore the white Bauhaus-style architecture scattered throughout the city and eat your way through the mouth-watering food at the Carmel Market, Tel Aviv’s open-air market and food heaven.

 

Outside the captivating cities, you’ll visit a myriad of ancient ruins, the most impressive being Masada. Follow the way of Jesus, visiting his birthplace of Bethlehem, his childhood hometown of Nazareth, and dipping your feet in the same waters that Jesus is believed to have walked on thousands of years ago. You’ll float on your back in the salty Dead Sea waters and take photos of yourself covered in healing muds – a true right of passage on your Israel vacation. You’ll have free time to shop till you drop and get to know Israel’s nonstop nightlife culture. Most importantly, you’ll go home with an arsenal of great memories and photographs, and even some Israeli slang like “yalla” and “sababa.”
