A fascinating tour of the Holy Land, this 8 day exploration of Israel takes in many of the ancient and important historical and religious sites of this unique country. We will experience the cosmopolitan buzz of Tel Aviv before moving on to the excavations of Caesarea and Megiddo and the beautiful port of Haifa. We then take a boat ride across the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum and also visit Tabgha and Mount of the Beatitudes as well as the beautiful Golan Heights. We move on to Nazareth before continuing south along the shores of the River of Jordan to Jerusalem where we will explore both the Old City and the New City before visiting Bethlehem. After a drive through the Judean Desert to Qumran we will head to the shore of the Dead Sea to float on the strange salty waters.
