What You Can Expect

Caeserea, Rosh Hanikra and Acre Day Trip from Tel Aviv

Bahai Garden

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2018

This was a really lovely day out. We kept to a good pace and got to see some great places. The cavernous Crusader underground buildings and tunnels at Akko a cable car down to the caverns at Rosh Hanikra, the much bigger than expected ruins of Herod the Great's palace at Caesarea and the informed and interesting commentary by our guide all made for a highly recommended day. It is a mixture of historical periods and, with the additional first hand experience of modern Israeli history from our guide, made this a history buff's dream trip. Even if you are not really into history the sights and experiences are worth the trip. A nice lunch of local fare too.

This was an excellent full day tour of the north west coastal area of Israel. Our guide Ozzy? was very knowledgable and despite his being 75 years old was full of energy! This was a very efficient way to see many sights in one day. This tour is highly recommended.

Very interesting and well paced tour. We definitely learned a lot more than we would have exploring on our own. Also, our tour guide was very mindful of finding shady spots for us on a hot day, which was definitely appreciated. Would definitely recommend this tour to others.
