What You Can Expect
Continue to Haifa, Israel’s third city which is set on and around the magnificent Mt. Carmen. The most striking landmark here is the immaculate Bahai Gardens, created as a tranquil memorial to the founders of the Baha’i faith.
From here you will travel up towards the Lebanon border to the rock formations of Rosh Hanikra, where impressive white cliffs meet the Mediterranean Sea. The action of the sea on the soft rocks has created a rich labyrinth of caves and limestone grottos, which you will have the chance to stroll around and explore. The Rosh Hanikra grottos are part of the Achziv Natural Reserve, and you may be lucky enough to catch sight of loggerhead turtle and bats – two examples of the native wildlife in this place of natural wonders.
Your day trip from Jerusalem concludes with a visit to the city of Acre. The city is often referred to as Akko, which means ‘until here’, illustrating the fact that it was historically the furthest point of in the Israeli Kingdom. Here you will visit the Crusader underground city and crypt, a complex world of underground tunnels and halls which were used by the Knights of St John as their headquarters. Before heading back to Jerusalem, you will walk back through the Old City Market, where can pick up a souvenir of your day of discovery.
Oh my the amphitheater and the Hippodrome all in one stop and it is still there. Pontius Pilate attended events here. So did Herod the great. Fast forward to the Crusaders and you have seen real history where it happened.
Israel is so rich in history but you only assume it's biblical - this tour offers an insight into other influences - roman, ottoman and the crusaders. The guide was very knowledgeable. The icing on the cake were the rosh hanikra grottos and you don't realise how close you are to the Lebanese border. Early start to the trip but worth it
nice trip good tour guide
This was very informative trip. Our guide was excellent. Very well organized.
Places are very interesting but guide is boring
Once the early morning round of hotels was done, with all the formalities, the trip from Tel Aviv up the coast to Akko was wonderful, each site being a great pleasure. It was a varied and interesting day and the guide was well informed and helpful. The one drawback was the evening traffic back, around Tel Aviv, making it a very long 14hour day for me by the time I was returned to Jerusalem. Organizing a rendezvous outside the Tel Aviv busy area, to allow Jerusalem and Tel Aviv patrons to be returned separately to their hotels, would improve the day a lot. Overall, a great tour.
After our shocking experience with our Ben Hareim tour to Jerasalem and Bethlem we nearly did not go on this tour although we had already paid for it! As it turned out it was quite good although we were forced into a hot and crowded and over priced restaurant for lunch.
If ratings were based on just the guides I would give every trip I took in Israel 5 stars. But when you add in the disorganization of the local operator the ratings drop. Late morning pick-ups, confusion over who was going where, a woman who comes in to the room shouting names and never introduces herself or company ; not very professional in the operations. The actual tour is wonderful.
The tour was ok. You could remove the trip to Rosh Hanikra as there is nothing to see there.
This was very very rushed. We barely had anytime at any one place to enjoy it. This should really be split into two days.
