Overview

Delve into three of Israel's historical port cities and the enchanting Rosh Hanikra grottos on this full-day trip from Tel Aviv. Traveling by air-conditioned coach with a professional guide, stop to visit the archaeological relics of ancient Caesarea, a port built by Herod the Great and home to the ruins of a harbor and Roman amphitheater. Visit Haifa to see the exquisite Baha’i Gardens, stroll around the sea grottos of Rosh Hanikra, and stop in the timeworn port of Acre to explore its Crusader tunnels and vibrant Old City Market.
  • Full day trip from Tel Aviv to Caesarea, Haifa, Rosh Hanikra and Acre
  • Walking tour of the ancient ruins and and the Roman theatre at Caesarea
  • View the Bahai gardens from Haife
  • Explore the Rosh Hanikra Grottos
  • Discover the Crusader underground city and crypt at Acre
  • Transport by air conditioned coach
  • Hotel pick-up and drop-off
Hop inside your air-conditioned coach at your central Tel Aviv hotel and set off on your full-day trip to discover some of Israel’s ancient port cities and coastal highlights.

As you travel, listen as your guide talks of the region’s ancient history. Hear about your first destination, ancient Caesarea, where the remains of a grandiose port city built by Herod the Great, line the Mediterranean shores.

Visit the Caesarea National Park to see the timeworn ruins of Herod’s harbor, the Roman amphitheater and other relics, and learn how the port was named after the Roman emperor Caesar Augustus.

Continue to Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, situated between Mt Carmen and golden Mediterranean beaches. Hear how this picturesque city is home to the headquarters of the Baha'i faith, and view the magnificently terraced Baha'i Gardens, topped by a gold-domed shrine to Bab, the faith’s founder.
Travel on to Rosh Hanikra in the Achziv Natural Reserve, where the sea has carved beautiful caverns from the white cliffs. Admire the turquoise-water-filled grottos and with luck, glimpse the loggerhead turtles and bats that frequent this protected area.

Next, continue to Acre, an important port-city in ancient times. Hear how its Hebrew name of Akko means ‘until here,’ reflecting its location at the furthest point of the land of Israel, and learn about its Greek, Roman, Crusader and Ottoman roots.

Explore some of the archaeological treasures in the UNESCO-listed Old City, including the Crusader underground tunnels used by the Knights of St John. Then, stroll around the bustling Old City Market to browse the stalls selling spices, herbs and trinkets.

Perhaps snap up souvenirs (own expense) here and then travel back to Tel Aviv, where your trip ends with a hotel drop-off.

A Perfect Day trip from Tel Aviv

View ancient Roman ruins, the ancient city of Acre and more on this day trip up the coast. Our group was small; our guide excellent.

Pleasant photography tour

Low key photography tour. Caesarea is full of replicas and underwhelming compared to other historical sites you can spend time on. The other stops are good for photography if you are into that, otherwise they are light on content. 4 stars instead of 3 because the guide was knowledgeable and the group lunch was very good (make sure to bring a 50 shekel bill per person).

Over priced, under delivered

Couldn’t recommend. I booked this tour because I had interest in seeing the ancient Roman city of Caesarea which was built by King Herod and the site of St Paul’s trial in Acts. It’s a good thing I read the Wikipedia page because our guide clearly did not and barely mentioned anything more than the bare minimum. After that it was entirely down hill as for ELEVEN HOURS I was then taken to see some gardens I couldn’t go in, hunch through freezing caves with 4 ft height clearance, and then taken to a very dicey, dirty city that apparently was one important to the crusades (again the info was not all that forthcoming from our guide so I can’t expand). I also second what many people complained about that the barely optional lunch we were swindled into felt low quality and overpriced especially considering this tour was already 2x the price of any others I did while in Israel. I also filled out the box when booking listing my dietary allergies which weren’t mentioned or accommodated in the slightest. I did see sites that I wouldn’t have gotten to see otherwise... and given what I saw that would have been fine too. Skip this tour and take yourself to Caesarea after reading the Wikipedia page. I’ll wager any of those pristine beach front cafes next door have a great lunch to offer.

Great tour

The tour was great. I had booked a few months earlier and the company sent me the meeting location. I emailed again two days before to confirm the time, but didn’t receive an answer. Luckily we had gone with the company the day before so I assumed we met at the same time. Other than that I enjoyed the tour and highly recommend.

This tour was very well organized - we had rains but that was no fault of the tour :-). Our guide was very good and knowledgeable. Areas that can be better: - The lunch was at a pre-selected place by the tour company (not included in the rate). The price seemed very high for the food (in comparison to what is available in the market in general - 40 INS for falafel with pita and salad and 50 INS for chicken shawarma with salad and pita) - the tour company can do a much better job at negotiating better rates - The time at Rosh Hanikra was very less - we were given 45 mins but with the rains, we couldn't walk fast as everything was slippery and we didn't manage to see the main Grotto - The tour landed up being almost 12-13 hours due to the traffic in Tel Aviv on the way back - again this is not within their control but a heads up will always help

Caeserea, Rosh Hanikra and Acre Day Trip from Tel Aviv

Pick up was within 10 minutes of the set time. Then we were taken to a meeting spot where everyone was placed on busses going to the different tours. Our experience was a bit mixed. Our guide was Inna. It was raining and extremely windy at Caeserea so we raced through this first stop. By the time we got to the remains of the aquaduct, the rain had stopped and we spent an appropriate amount of time there. The stop in Haifa looking down on the Bahai Gardens was very pretty. The driver purposely stayed in the round-about at the base of the garden so we could all get pictures looking up. We then drove up to Rosh Hanikra but because of the earlier storm, the ocean was too angry for us to go down to the Grottos. Very disappointing. We were able to look over into Lebanon before heading to Akko. At this point we were pretty hungry, In Akko we were taken to a pre-arranged location for lunch. I knew that lunch was not included in the price. We were offered a vegetarian lunch of falafel and hummus or hummus, falafel and schwarma. Vegetarian was 44 shekels and meat was 55. They push you to sit and eat there, but you can go anywhere you want. Akko is a town so there are plenty of places to eat. The tour continued after lunch with ruins, tunnels and caves. Our guide spoke fast and the walk was long but there was a lot to cover. A few times I felt as though she was racing through but overall she did a good job.

Our tour was fantastic mostly because Lorne was the best tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and adds just the right amount humor and spice to his presentation. He is very good about keeping the tour on track and letting people know that if there is free time they need to be back at the specified time. The bus was comfortable, the tour itself was incredible and it doesn't get better then having Lorne for your guide!

The guide was very helpful and prepared so that we could appreciate the history and the landscape of the three places. If you love nature, beauty, history and architecture this trip may add a wonderful day to your israel experience.
