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 Baha'i 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 Tel Aviv 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 Tel Aviv, you will walk back through the Old City Market, where can pick up a souvenir of your day of discovery.
The tour sites visited were excellent and interesting but it was just a pity that the tour guide, Eli, was not very knowledgeable and did not give us sufficient insight of the places visited. Also the place he selected for lunch was rather expensive for the food offered.
This was one of the best tours I've been on. The guide (Tamar) was supurb. Imagine a woman in her seventies scrambling over ruins and through caves and explaining all the history, archeology, geology and the plants along the way. She even sang to us on the way back. Rosh Hanikra is beautiful, as are the Bahai gardens.
