Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Begin your Israel Escape in Tel Aviv and enjoy a welcome dinner together with your Tour Director and traveling companions. In Jaffa walk around the beautifully restored port—starting point for medieval pilgrimages to Jerusalem. Continue your guided tour of Israel through the Holy Land to Caesarea, and journey to Nazareth in Galilee to visit the Church of the Annunciation. Stop in Cana—site of Jesus’ wedding miracle turning water into wine—on your way to historical Haifa. A wealth of fascinating visits awaits you: the Baha’i Shrine; the Mount of Beatitudes, and Capernaum—all sites where the story of Jesus unfolded, the Valley of Elah where David slew Goliath, the Valley of Ayalon to hear the story of Samson and Delilah, and a serene cruise on the Sea of Galilee. You’ll also visit the birthplace of Jesus in Bethlehem. Stay four nights in Jerusalem to discover this symbolic city. Embark on a moving excursion to Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial. Visit the Israel Museum containing the Shrine of the Book, and the Dead Sea Scrolls—the oldest biblical manuscripts in the world. Visit the Old City, the Garden Tomb, and take in the view from the Mount of Olives. See the Garden of Gethsemane, follow the Stations of the Cross along the Via Dolorosa, and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre at the site of the crucifixion. View the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock mosque, and visit the Western Wall, the most holy shrine in Jewish religion. Also visit the fortress of Masada—a historic site for Jewish faith. The experience of floating in the buoyant salt waters of the Dead Sea enriches the wonderful memories already collected during your inspirational Israel Escape!

Welcome to Tel Aviv! Enjoy this evening’s welcome dinner with your traveling companions and Tour Director. (D)

Day 2: TEL AVIV–JAFFA–CAESAREA–NAZARETH–CANA–HAIFA.
Stop in Jaffa for a walk through the beautifully restored ancient port, where medieval pilgrims started their strenuous 2-day trek to Jerusalem. Then, continue your tour of the Holy Land to Caesarea, the perfect place to learn about the Roman and Crusader presence in the country. Visit the ROMAN AMPHITHEATER and the impressive CRUSADER FORTRESS, and admire Herod’s stadium and harbor. On to Nazareth in Galilee, to visit the contemporary CHURCH OF THE ANNUNCIATION. Then Cana, site of the first miracle where Jesus changed water into wine at a wedding. To this day, many couples renew their wedding vows at this sacred place.

Day 3: HAIFA. EXCURSION TO THE MOUNT OF BEATITUDES–CAPERNAUM–SEA OF GALILEE.
Start your day with a visit to the golden-domed BAHA’I SHRINE, the world center of Baha’i faith. Heading towards the Sea of Galilee, visit the MOUNT OF BEATITUDES, where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount. Then proceed to CAPERNAUM, where Jesus recruited his first followers among the fishermen. Via the ruins of Kursi, arrive at the Jordan River and visit the BAPTISMAL SITE, followed by a relaxing [LF] CRUISE on the Sea of Galilee. (B,D)

Day 4: HAIFA–VALLEY OF ELAH–LATRUN–BETHLEHEM–JERUSALEM.
Drive into the ancient land of the Philistines and the Valley of Elah. Stop at the site of David’s victory over the Philistine champion, Goliath, and hear about this biblical event. Later, hear the tale of Samson and Delilah as you travel through the land of the Dan tribe to the wide Valley of Ayalon. At strategic Latrun, visit the MONASTERY OF THE TRAPPIST MONKS. Stop en route for a breathtaking panoramic view of the Holy City of Jerusalem, considered one of the oldest places in the world, with a history dating back as far as 4000 BC. Proceed to Bethlehem and see Shepherd’s Field, where the angels announced the birth of Jesus. Next, visit the CHURCH OF THE NATIVITY, which stands on the site where Jesus was born.

Day 6: JERUSALEM. EXCURSION TO THE OLD CITY.
This morning, visit the GARDEN TOMB. After viewing a stunning panorama of the city from the revered MOUNT OF OLIVES, start your guided walking tour. Via the Chapel of Dominus Flevit, designed in the shape of a tear drop to symbolize the tears of Christ, arrive at the GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE, where Jesus prayed the night before his arrest. Nearby are the Caves of the Assumption of Mary and of the Betrayal. Follow the Stations of the Cross along the VIA DOLOROSA to Golgotha, and visit the CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE.

Day 7: JERUSALEM. EXCURSION TO MASADA AND THE DEAD SEA.
Drive through the Judean wilderness to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on the surface of the Earth. Enjoy the scenery as you follow the road between the salty water and majestic desert mountains. Catch glimpses of the caves of Qumran, where the precious Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Ascend by cable car to the spectacular cliff-top FORTRESS of Masada, and hear how 960 Jewish zealots preferred death at their own hands to the indignity of surrender to overwhelming Roman forces. Around lunchtime, reach one of the comfortable Dead Sea resorts and experience the feeling of buoyancy in the heavy water. Return to Jerusalem to enjoy a farewell dinner with your traveling companions to commemorate an unforgettable journey through the Holy Land. (B,D)

After our stay in Tel Aviv, accomodations were mediocre, clean but nothing impressive. Our main guide was very good and informative, but the guide in Bethlehem was all about us spending money at one his jewelry and souvenir connections. The special dinners and lunches outside of the hotels we stayed at were mediocre.
