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.

Tour was very rushed.The group size (around 30+) was too large, making it difficult for all to stay together at the sites and hear the guide. Inadequate time was provided for the lunch stop.The lunch itself was not included in the tour price, offered very limited menu options, and was expensive. The "English-speaking" guide had a somewhat limited command of the English language, leading to confusion about historical names and places.

Our DayTrip along the mediterranean coast of Israel to Lebanon border was really great experience. We saw Caesarea, Haifa, Akko and Rosh haNikra. Spectacular aqueducts, grottos , stunning castle of the templars. We and other Guyz :- were absolutely impressed, how great and how professional was our trip guided. Lorne was an excellent Guide, he showed us all these sites using really big dose of humor mixed with hundreds of interesting historical and political facts -Lorne has unbelievable historical knowledge. Great Job Lorne, many thanks!!!

The amount of history and culture wrapped in this one single day is amazing. The guide was knowledgeable and generally pleasant enough, I wish he gave more of a guided tour of Akko, instead of just letting us roam and figure it out alone. My only worry was that the mini van was rather dirty and old and the driver was a maniac, made risky choices in traffic like heading straight into a roundabout with 0 care about priority and missed slamming into the side of another vehicle by 10 cm or so and only used the turn signals twice, once in Caesarea and once in Akko. It's true that most people in the middle east drive rather recklessly but me and a British passenger both sitting right behind the driver had shocked faces every couple of minutes seeing how the driver negotiated traffic.

Unfortunately, the tour didn't allow us to spend any time at Baha'i gardens, just let us gaze at the gardens from outside for 5 minutes. The tour didn't stop at the Greman colony either. Rosh Hanikra is a nice place, but I have seen a lot better, and won't spent 2 hour driving there and back if it was my choice. Old Akko is very interesting, I wish we could spend more time there.

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.
