Non-stop overnight flights direct to Tel Aviv
Arriving in Tel Aviv, IBMT staff will provide personalized service and attention from day one. Right from the airport, a comfortable tour bus provides transport to Tel Aviv for a restful night. The following day, it’s a leisure day to explore Tel Aviv with its extensive beaches, fabulous restaurants, and tourist sights throughout.
Driving north to Caesarea, Haifa, and Acre
In Caesarea, touring includes the ancient Crusader excavations, the Roman aqueduct, and the amphitheatre. In Haifa, there’s time to explore the history of illegal immigration during the British mandate period. Then to Acre, where the Old City is recognized as a World Heritage Site. Finally, overnight at a Kibbutz guesthouse.
Down south to Masada and the Dead Sea
The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth, and with super-high salt concentration, it’s super-easy to float. The remnants of Masada are the next amazing experience - ascending by cable car and exploring the fortress, the synagogue, and the bathhouses. The next stop is at a local hotel spa for a "swim" in the mineral-rich Dead Sea.
Safed - one of the most spiritual of cities
As one of the four holy cities in Israel, Safed is the centre of Kabbalah, with palpable spiritualism and a picturesque artist quarter. This is followed with a tour of the Golan Heights and a visit to Tel-Hai, commemorating the 1920 battle of Josef Trumpeldor. The day is completed with a restful overnight at a kibbutz guesthouse.
Jerusalem - with many centuries of history
For Jews, Christians, and Muslims, Jerusalem is of the deepest significance. Touring with IBMT encompasses all of Jerusalem - the Old City; the Wailing Wall; the Al-Aqsa Mosque; and the Dome of the Rock. Jerusalem offers travellers a cross-section of religion, history, and culture – for many, this is truly their highlight in Israel.
