These tours will take you through the land where Jesus was born, where he preached all the way to the site of his crucifixion, ensuring that you have truly memorable experience.

Geographical Marvels

Still wondering what to do in Israel? You will be amazed how Mother Nature has blessed Israel with numerous marvels. Among them there is the Dead Sea, the lowest point of the world. Due to excessive deposits of minerals in water, life cannot be sustained here. Hence, the name Dead Sea. The Red Sea, named so after the coral reef, is a treat to eyes. Near the Red Sea is Eliat which is famous for its underwater observatory, upscale resorts and spas and various adventure sports. Other spots that you must not miss out on are Ramon Crater- world’s largest crater and gorgeous beach of Tel Aviv. Whether you are taking group tours to Israel or opting for Israel private tours, you will be taken to all these spots.

Historical Spots

Holocaust is another aspect without which Israel tour is incomplete. To pay homage to the six million Jews who fell prey to the Holocaust you must visit Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. It is a 45 acre land that houses library, museum, monuments and exhibition halls. Overlooking the Dead Sea, there is the fortress of Masada where thousands of Jews chose to commit suicide but did not surrender to the Romans. This is an integral part of Israel private tours as well as group tours to Israel from foreign countries.  

And then there is the vivacious and exuberant night life of Tel Aviv. From dance centers, theatres, galleries to clubs and bars, there is everything you may need it call it a day. And you will wonder why you ever thought what to do in Israel. Undoubtedly, Israel is the most underrated yet rich tourist destination.
