JERUSALEM

"3,000 years with no place to be
And they want me to give up my milk and honey
Don't you see, it's not about the land or the sea
Not the country but the dwelling of his majesty
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
Fire not gonna come from me tongue.
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
Let my right hand forget what it's supposed to do."

 

Many people know this song, performed by the Jewish Rapper Matisyahu but not all know that some of his words were written 3000 years ago, by King David himself (Psalms 137).

 

While touring in Jerusalem we can discover and follow the kings and common people who had been living here for thousands of years. We can focus on biblical sites and stories, or archaeological sites from the days of the Second Temple, or enjoy seeing both history and Jerusalem in its glory in 2019!  Just name your passion and we will follow it in Jerusalem: An amazing water tunnel, vibrant markets, ancient walls, unique synagogues, hidden caves and tunnels in the Old City, the Western Wall, reuniting the old city in 1967, the Holocaust Museum, beautiful viewpoints and much more...

 
OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM

"So much to do so much to see"
We can encounter Jewish history all over the beautiful land of Israel:
We can enjoy a day or two in the Golan Heights and see one of the most ancient synagogues in the world, tell the miraculous story of the Yom Kippur War  at a special viewpoint overlooking Syria (less than 2 miles from the border), enjoy a chocolate factory and winery and hike to a beautiful natural spring.


In the Galilee we can visit the mystical city of Tzfat and its unique synagogues and special Kabbalistic artists, enjoy hot springs or kayaking in the Jordan river or swimming in the Kinneret (The Sea of Galilee).

THE MEDITERRANEAN COAST

We can visit Rosh Hanikra - the suggested place of entrance point to Israel of Abraham 3800 years ago, and walk through the special natural made Grottos at the site.

 

We can enjoy Akko (Acre) with its Medieval remains and the Ramchal synagogue and amazing Crusader fortresses and underground tunnels which were declared a UNESCO Heritage World Site. We can cruise in a very fast Tornado boat (an all family experience!) see the Bahai gardens in Akko and Haifa, a true wonder and the most important place in the world for the Bahai religion, enjoy the  Druze Market and hospitality.

Heading towards Tel Aviv we can visit Caesarea - the place where the great revolt (66-74 ce) started, and where Rabbi Akiva was, the city was built by King Herod 'the builder' who left his fingertips on the magnificent Theater (still active today!), go to the 2000 year old port and see the Crusaders city as well.


Tel Aviv and Jaffa are definitely worth a visit- fabulous Museums from contemporary art to the Palmach Museum (under ground army in the days of the British Mandate), from the most modern and open city in Israel (and in some criteria in the world) to the traditional markets such as the flea marketSarona marketShuk Hakarmel and the art and crafts fair at Nachalat Binyamin.

 
 
THE JUDEAN DESERT

Only a combination of desert scenery, dry climate and history in its making could have left us such special sites such as Masada - where the last struggle against the Romans was at the time of the Great Revolt, Qumran- where the Dead Sea scrolls were found, or Ein Gedi- where King Saul had met David next to surprising waterfalls and an ancient synagogue with remarkable Mosaic 1600 year old floor. We can also access the point in the Jordan river where the sons of Israel entered the land of Israel and then, stop and enjoy floating in the Dead Sea - the lowest place in the world with nice beaches and a lot of the famous mud of the Dead sea and more. 

THE NEGEV

If you think Ben Gurion's airport tells you about the first prime minister of Israel, wait until you visit his home in the desert and the new exciting Museum which recently opened there. A visit to Mitzpe Ramon - a quiet town which sits next to a Crater!  Hiking, rappelling, practicing shooting with a real bow and arrow, jeep rides and camel or donkey rides are only a small part of what we can see and do in the area.

EILAT

In the southern city of Israel the sun always shines and luxury hotels can make your vacation truly relaxing.  The Red Sea attractions include swimming with dolphins, walking on a see-through floor over a unique Coral reef which will expose us to thousands of colorful fish just beneath our eyes. Renting a speed boat or snorkeling will make sure all members of the family will have an experience to remember.

A BAR OR BAT MITZVA EXPERIENCE

Have a special tour, tailored especially to your family with all the small things that only you (and I) can know that you want.  
Whether for you and your family it's all about surprising your son with rappelling down a 75 foot cliff in front of the walls of Jerusalem or zip line over a main road, while making sure you will have whatever it takes to make sure both the grandparents and the granddaughters will have a great time, great food, an authentic experience and most important – A unique experience that fits your dreams and wishes!
