Itinerary idea in detail

With international flights from a choice of airports including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Tel Aviv. Arrive into Tel Aviv, where you’re met by a driver for the journey into Jerusalem. Then, once settled into your hotel, spend the rest of your day at leisure after your flight.

  • Today embark on a private tour of Old Jerusalem with your guide, visiting sites such as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Western Wall (Kotel), and viewing the Dome of the Rock from several points around the city.

  • Head into the West Bank area to explore Bethlehem, visiting Manger Square and the Church of the Nativity as part of your private tour. Later, you’ll return to Jerusalem for a private tour of Yad Vashem, Israel’s official memorial to Jewish victims of the Holocaust, and the Mahane Yehuda Market, where you can enjoy a few tastings from local food stalls.

  • This morning you set out along the Dead Sea’s shoreline to Masada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where Romans laid siege to a group of 960 Jews known as the Zealots. Following your exploration here, continue to the Dead Sea for lunch and a swim, before exploring Ein Gedi National Park.

  • Travel north from Jerusalem to Galilee. Along the way, you’ll stop in Zippori, known for being the place where the Mishna was redacted in 220 CE as well as the birthplace of the Virgin Mary. Next, stop at Nazareth to visit the Church and Grotto of the Annunciation, then, finally, visit Mount Tabor, believed to be the site of the Transfiguration of Jesus. You’ll then continue on to your hotel in Galilee.

  • Begin your day with an exploration of the area around the Sea of Galilee, including important Christian religious sites such as the Mount of the Beatitudes, Capernaum and Tabgha. You’ll then have time to tour a working agricultural kibbutz and learn about daily life as well as the history of the kibbutz. Afterwards, you’ll be driven on to Tel Aviv, which is less than two hours away.

  • Explore a bit of old and new today as you spend time in ancient Jaffa and modern Tel Aviv. Visit Jaffa’s historic port and Tel Aviv’s oldest district before making your way into the bustling modern heart of Tel Aviv.

  • Your private driver will collect you for the journey to the airport for your flight. Your return flight will arrive the same day.
