Itinerary

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.

Great Tour for the North
Alexandra_M, Jun 2022
Amazing tour to some of the highlights in the North. The guide Daphne was friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of these areas but could be a little on the quiet side. Nonetheless great guiding and tour.

Pleasant photography tour
Chris_T, Feb 2020
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
Natalie_M, Feb 2020
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
Alanna_P, Jan 2020
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.

Including the hotel pickups & Drop offs, the tour was neatly arranged. The tour is designed with consideration to traveler's comfort.
Good tour with the right mix of attractions
PALLAVITA_S, Jan 2020
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
Cheryl_K, Jan 2020
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.
Amazing experience
MICHAEL_A, Aug 2019
Amazing experience we had an incredible tour guide he’s so knowledgeable and funny. The places were gorgeous!
Great tour and an amazing tour guide
Jerry_K, Jul 2019
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!
Thousends years of history in one day
mariapia_s, May 2019
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.
A fabulous interesting tour
Judianne_J, Apr 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip around Caesaria, Haifa, Akko and Rosh Hanikra. Our tour guide Nicola was excellent. She was knowledgeable, friendly, interesting and accommodated our eating issues without any problem at all. It was a very busy day but she kept us amused with history, politics and lots of interesting stories. I’d highly recommend this trip
Affordable and informational
Dream56676644296, Jan 2019
Took the day trip to north of Israel. Pickup and drop off was flexible, price was cheap, the guide was personable, knowledgeable, and didn’t let the group linger.
Great sites but luckily weather was great
Henry_J, Jan 2019
Great tour/sites but may not be great if weather is not good. Lunch was not worth the extra money charged.
Great Day
Jonathan_P, Dec 2018
Terrific guide and driver. Did a good job of keeping group moving. A very interesting and fun day. Highly recommended
Excellent
Global63569166713, Dec 2018
The tour guide was fantastic, very confident, very informative with a lot of energy and we were given so much information everywhere we went. It was a terrific tour. I would recommend it to everyone.
Disappointing
LynneH_K, Nov 2018
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.
Amazing
Shannon C, Oct 2018
This tour was wonderful. All the sites were beautiful. I loved seeing everything and our guide was very knowledgeable!
