Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join tour Tel Aviv

Join your tour in Tel Aviv and check into our hotel. Tel Aviv sits proudly on a 14km stretch of beach along the Mediterranean Sea, and the city is informally broken into two distinct areas; the modern city with skyscrapers, bars and a wide beach boulevard and then the historic port city of Jaffa featuring narrow walkways and many little places to try delicious hummus. A walk between the ancient and modern is really enjoyable along the beach paths.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hotel

Single room available

Swimming pool available

Meals Provided: None

Day 2 - Tel Aviv city tour, then explore Old Jaffa, Caesarea and Haifa

Israel's second largest city, Tel Aviv was originally founded at the beginning of the 20th century on the outskirts of the old port city of Jaffa but as Tel Aviv has grown Jaffa has immersed into the city boundaries too, creating a city with wonderful contrast. After breakfast, we'll start our walking tour of Tel Aviv to see examples of the impressive European-influenced 1930s architecture, the fashionable neighbourhood of Neve Tzedek and the charming, ancient port area of Jaffa.

Around mid-morning we'll travel to the archaeological park of Caesarea that stands about one hour outside of the city and boasts Roman ruins including an amphitheatre, pillars and frescoes dating back some 2,000 years. We travel along Israel's northern coast and journey to the historic city of Haifa, where we take in the panoramic views from the slopes of Mount Carmel and see the Bahai Gardens.

Finally late this afternoon we will make our way to Kibbutz Degania Bet about 90 minutes north-east, near to the Sea of Galilee. In Israel today kibbutzim communities have evolved from when they originally began in the early 1900s, however, the values of fair pay, shared commodities and everyone being equal. There are strict rules on who can join a kibbutz community and many kibbutz have their own speciality when it comes to making money such as agriculture, innovation or technology. This evening, we'll eat in the communal dining hall with the residents.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Kibbutz

Single room available

Swimming pool available

Meals Provided: Breakfast and Dinner

Day 3 - Visit Sea of Galilee and holy places of Capernahum; afternoon tour of Nazareth

Today we visit the Evangelical Triangle to the north of the Sea of Galilee, made up of three key religious sites - Tabgha, Capernaum and Mount Beatitudes. We'll spend around 30 minutes at Tabgha, where it is said one of the most significant events of the New Testament took place - the feeding of the 5,000. We will visit the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves, the Church of the Primacy of St Peter before visiting the Mount Beatitudes. We'll also spend a short while in Capernaum, the birthplace of St. Peter and the site where it is believed Jesus first started his ministry. Later this morning, we'll take a boat trip out onto the waters of the Sea of Galilee. The exact running order of this morning will be decided by our leader on the day depending on weather and visitor numbers to ensure the best possible experience.

This afternoon we will travel to Nazareth, Israel's largest Arab city. Sprawling down into the valley, the city is densely populated and feels a country away from Tel Aviv. The population is majority Arab, the city is humming with life on the Sabbath unlike many other cities in the country, and it's the best place to taste the Middle Eastern treat of Knafeh! The city is also home to the iconic Basilica of the Annunciation, where it is said that Angel Gabriel told Mary she would conceive and give birth to the Son of God. We'll also visit St. Joseph's Church before taking some free time to explore.

This evening we'll have dinner at the kibbutz.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Kibbutz

Single room available

Swimming pool available

Meals Provided: Breakfast and Dinner

Day 4 - Visit Jericho, the scrolls of Qumran and float in the Dead Sea

This morning one of the kibbutz residents will take us on a guided tour of their community so we can begin to understand their way of life and see some of the landmarks including the school and museum. There may even be time to pop into the chocolate factory and meet the chocolatiers.

Around mid-morning we will travel south for about one hour into the Jordan Valley, crossing the border into the West Bank. Our first stop will be in Jericho, where our leader will swap with a local Palestinian guide for a tour of the city. Lying amidst the hotly contested settlements of the West Bank, Jericho was the first city to fly the flag of the newly formed Palestinian state and its history stretches back some ten millennia. We will ascend via cable car to visit the Monastery of Temptation and it is here that Jesus was tempted by the devil during his 40 day fast. As well as the religious significance, the site also offers fantastic views over the valley below.

We'll later continue south for another 30 minutes to Qumran National Park, once the home of the Essenes, a strict and devout Jewish sect who lived in the area until early in the 1st century AD. It is believed that the Essenes were the authors of the 2,000 year old manuscripts found amongst the hillside caves in 1947, and after lunch here we will visit the local caves to learn about the ancient Dead Sea scrolls. Fortunately, our kibbutz for tonight is located just five minutes from Qumran and the shore of the Dead Sea, so later this afternoon, depending on the weather, there may be a chance to float in the iconic saline waters at the lowest point on earth before a short transfer to our Kibbutz.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Kibbutz

Single room available

Swimming pool available

Meals Provided: Breakfast and Dinner

Day 5 - Explore Ein Gedi, visit sky fortress of Masada and drive to Jerusalem

We'll have an early breakfast this morning for an 8am departure to Masada. After exiting the West Bank and approximately a two hour drive we will arrive at the foot of a giant rock plateau that juts out above the surrounding desert landscape. We'll ascend by cable car to explore the legendary fortress city of Masada, the last stronghold of the Zealots against the Romans during the First Revolt in AD 70. Steeped in history and shrouded in mystery our leader we'll tell the tales of this citadel, and there will be time to take in the stunning views of the surrounding desert, including the mountains of Moab and the Dead Sea. Once back on ground level, there will be free time for lunch before another short transfer to Ein Gedi Nature Reserve. Here we will take an hour long hike to a spring to enjoy this natural oasis in the middle of the desert.

Later this afternoon we will travel to Jerusalem, via the West Bank, our base for the next few nights; this evening there is the option of a light and sound show at the Tower of David.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hostel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 6 - Exploring Jerusalem

We'll have an early breakfast this morning before departing by bus for Bethlehem, about one hour's drive away. Along the way we will pass the Knesset - Israel's Parliament - and the Supreme Court. Shortly before arriving to Bethlehem we will cross the border back into Palestinian Territory and our leader will swap with a local Palestinian guide, who will lead us around the town that is an icon in religious history as the biblical birthplace of Jesus Christ. The Bus will park in the central bus station and we will continue on foot up a cobbled street to the Church of the Nativity before continuing by bus to the Shepherd Fields and the Milk Grotto.

Please note, Bethlehem can become very busy with tourist and pilgrims therefore we are unable to guarantee the time access inside each of the sites. Queueing times are unpredictable and areas have little shade so please be prepared for long waits if you wish to see inside the Church of Nativity and the Milk Grotto.

Later this afternoon we will return to Jerusalem and head to the old city for a guided tour. The oldest signs of settlement in Jerusalem date back 6,000 years ago but it's believed that historic Jerusalem as we know it now was founded around 4,000 years ago. The old city is a maze of narrow alleyways and cobbled streets lined with stalls, hole-in-the-wall eateries and colourful front doors, hiding religious treasures deep within. Late this afternoon we will aim to be at the sacred Western Wall to observe Shabbat services if time allows.

Accommodation:

Grade: Comfortable Hostel

Single room available

Meals Provided: Breakfast

Day 7 - Walking the biblical trail in Jerusalem

Today will be packed as we endeavour to take in Jerusalem's highlights with our leader. Jerusalem's history is one of passion, religion, war and controversy; destroyed twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times and recaptured 44 times. This morning we'll start with a drive up to the Mount of Olives up on a ridge above the city, it is from here that it's said Jesus ascended to heaven and this spot offers a superb view across the Old City. From the top of the mount we will descend to the foothills to visit the Roman Catholic Dominus Flevit Church, where we're told that Jesus envisioned the destruction of Jerusalem and wept. On our way back towards the city we'll also see the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations.

Around late morning to early afternoon, we will take transfer by bus back to the Old City where we'll continue exploring all afternoon on foot. Jerusalem is unique in that it is held sacred by the three great monotheistic religions of the world, Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Passing through the winding, cobbled lanes overflowing with street vendors and shops, we walk along the Via Dolorosa, traditionally believed to be the route taken by Christ on the day of his execution. We will follow the Stations of the Cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the holiest site in Christendom and the reputed place of the crucifixion, burial and eventual resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Finally we head up onto the slopes of Mount Zion, where we visit the tomb of King David, the beautiful Benedictine Abbey of the Dormition and the Cenacle, which since the 4th century has been identified as the site of the Last Supper.

After a packed day of exploring we'll return to our hotel for time to freshen up before our last evening of the trip.

In the warm, summer months Israel can get very hot during the height of the day, so lightweight and loose fitting clothing is recommended when visiting conservative areas. A hat and sunglasses are recommended.

Tipping

Explore leader
Tour Leader: In Israel, it is customary to tip the tour leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive. We would recommend allowing approximately $6-$8 per person per day as a guideline but this is at your discretion.
Local crew
In Israel tipping at 15%-20% is a recognised part of life across the service industry, including restaurants, activity suppliers, taxis and guides. Local staff will look to you for personal recognition of particular services provided.

Your leader will arrange a tips kitty for activities and services included in the itinerary, so we recommend you allow $45 per person for this tips kitty. For anything outside of the included activities and services, your leader will be happy to offer advice on tipping.

Accommodation notes

Throughout this trip the accommodation varies in style, standard and size.

In Tel Aviv, we stay in a boutique style accommodation in the city centre. The beach is just 5 minutes' walk away, the hotel offers an excellent breakfast and a roof-top bar is open during the warmer months.

Our kibbutz stays, offer an insight into a traditional and alternative way of living found throughout Israel. All rooms are spacious, clean and the kibbutz offer nice communal areas and swimming pools throughout the warmer months (subject to set opening times). At the kibbutz dinners will be served in a communal dining room where both guests and residents eat alongside one another on long tables, and you choose from a cafeteria-style buffet selection of hot and cold food.

In Jerusalem, we stay in a centrally located hostel, just minutes from Jaffa Gate into the Old City, in the post office building. We have graded the hostel as 'comfortable' because although the property features dormitory rooms, all Explore customers stay in private twin-share accommodation with en-suite. Whilst the rooms are small and simply furnished, they are clean and all feature private bathroom facilities, making it a great base from which to explore this historic capital city. There is also a large communal area with comfortable seating, a bar and their roof terrace is open during the warmer months. The main highlight of this accommodation is its central location, with many of Jerusalem's highlights just a walk away and access to the city's modern tram just 100m away.

All customers that travel on an Explore Group or Private Journey trip will be provided with a complimentary transfer, provided they arrive and depart into the designated airport or train station on the trip start and end dates. Generally the airport or station that Explore have selected will be the one that is closest to the town or city where the trip starts, or the one nearest to the joining point. It will be either an airport or train station but not both. The exception to this rule are customers who are booked on a trip where the joining and/or ending point is the airport or station. In this particular case there will be a specific time provided for when the trip starts and ends. On these particular trips, only one arrival and departure transfer will generally be provided for the whole group. Please see free transfers for terms and conditions.

These trip joining details are provided on a provisional basis and may change prior to this tour departing. Any changes to these details will be updated on this page.
For those not eligible for a free transfer the joining / ending time and location for your trip are detailed below:
