The tour was well organized, and very pleasant. good guide, and all 3 places were very interesting. an easy way to visit these sights.
Norbert did a great job leading this tour both in French and English. We sort of rushed through Caesarea, as we only saw the Roman part, not the Byzantine or Crusader areas, but Caesarea is so large, when my husband and I went on our own a few days before, we managed to spend about 4 hours there, so I can see how that can be a tour on its own. Rosh Hanikra was stunning and it was exciting to get to be that close to Lebanon. The ruins in Akko were fantastic and so interesting. Norbert did a great job of explaining everything. Lunch could have been better but it is hard to find a place that can quickly accommodate so many people! Of all the ministry of tourism approved gift shops we were taken to on all 4 of our tours, this was definitely the nicest and most interesting. I would definitely recommend this tour - thank you Norbert!
The tour was very well run, with pick-up, drop-off, lunch, and all other logistics handled perfectly.
All the destinations are fantastic, but we only got a few minutes at the Baha'i gardens; I'd have preferred to skip this stop in favor of exploring the hippodrome at Caesarea. But that's a quibble
Another excellent tour. Very knowledgeable guides. A long day but worth it
The Bahai Gardens and Rosh Hanikra was absolutely stunning! The views were simply breath taking!
This tour is a nice break from all the religious tours, which of course are important in their own right. You'll see sites of historic significances (more so than religious) and they are quite varied. Caeserea and Acre (or Akko) are fascinating and delightfully diminutive. The trip to Rosh Hanikra, while a natural beauty, was easily my least favorite part of this trip, yet the farthest point. But one of the most interesting stops is not listed in the tour's title: The Bahá'í Gardens. Stunningly beauty. An oasis of peace.
Because we stayed in Tel Aviv we didn’t spend as much time picking up and dropping off people which was nice, giving us more time at the actual sites. We did have a required stop for lunch with no other options. Tour guide was great, would recommend for an affordable tour.
A varied day trip from ancient to modern,covering Caesarea with Herod the Great's palace and the Roman remains to the Lebanese border being guarded by some very young people with very modern weapons. Haifa and the lovely Baha'i gardens deserved more time and the time for shopping in Akko deserved a lot less time. The Crusader castle is spectacular and we could have explored it a lot more. The trip to the caves of Rosh Hanikra was interesting - careful as paths in the caves are slippery.
Great trip! Wish we could have gotten off the bus to take pictures at the Acqueduct and the bottom of the Bahai Gardens, but other than that it was a great trip!
Very informative and encompassing! We got to see and enjoy a lot.
Solid tour that hit the highlights. Our lunch on your one ended up with the entire group being seated at a,place that charged 3x what other locations in the market did. Tour guide was knowledgeable but lacked people skills.
It's a nice tour, but like guided tours you have to follow the group and it can go a little bit fast. I didn't like that we expended more than half an hour in a store (obviously commission for the guide) and then we were hurried in everything else.
The tour overall was good, but didn't leave much time to self explore. Would have been good to have an extra 30 minutes or so in Caesarea to walk around on our own. The tour guide we had was very knowledgeable.
It was a great disappointment that we did not visit the Bahai Gardens, but the day was full and we felt a bit rushed anyway.
the visit to Acre was extremely interesting, but the side trip to Haifa was not worth the time, and the brief visit to Caeserea was a bit too rushed to be worthwhile. The caves at Rosh Hanikra are worth the extra travel time... perhaps if they put a bit less in this day's excursion, more time could be spent on fewer sites
Tour started very well but it became less interesting as it was ending. Lunch was too low-cost. I know that people in tours have different budgets but I took 3 consecutive tours and I ate shawarma the 3 days!! Van was broken in the way back and the guide couldn't control the situation as she was getting upset when people started complaining. A couple was lost during a museum visit and the guide took all the rest to look for the lost couple. Then she wanted me to step right beside her, even I was not part of the lost couple. Worst thing of the tour was the broken van and the lunch
This was a full day tour. The tour covered everything as advertised and more. ( I would rate the tour as excellent if it was not for the transportation issue). The guide was excellent! My only complaint was the bus! We were stuffed on the bus and it was very uncomfortable. I would not recommend this tour for anyone that needs leg room!
I have taken 5 tours using this company and the bus was always an issue. Being on a bus for an entire day, we should not have to be stuffed in a small bus/van.
There wasn't enough time at each destination. The tour leader did not seem knowledgeable about what we were seeing.
It was an ok day trip but is a pity that Haifa and Rosh Hanikra they give about 10 to 15 minutes only which are the best part of the tour in my opinion. Also when complaining this to the driver and the fact he left us in a store for over 20 min he offended me in Hebrew (that I dont speak) but someone else in tour understood and not only told me but complained about it to him. Very disappointing.
You always know what tours are about, going in group, spending little time in each location and spending a long time in stores, but this was too much.
The guide was in a hurry in every place we went, gave small explanations -which most of the time were just a repetition of the written signs you could find or just absolutelly inaccurate- and as soon as he finished talking we had to move to next site without even have time to take photographs.
Stores and lunch where obviously a different thing, those where long and paused, I brought my own lunch and had it in the bus (I advise you to do the same) and used lunch time to go and explore by myself, which was an excelent idea -even went into a place that according to the guide was"closed" when asked if we could visit it during the tour.
On the possitive side, the places you go to are really nice and worth visiting, my advice would be to rent a car, biy the fodor's guide and do it by yourself, I did that when visiting Nazareth, Tiberias, etc and was much better
The views where really nice
