DAY 1 - Arrive Jerusalem


Welcome to Israel, where we'll kick off our tour in the City of Gold. In this religious centre of Christianity, Islam & Judaism, we'll begin with an included dinner to get to know each other, before a locally guided tour of this holy city tomorrow.

DAY 2 - Jerusalem


Today we’ll get to know Jerusalem a little better with a full day tour, uncovering secrets and culture that dates back thousands of years. We’ll discover the city's holy history and iconic sites, including the Jewish Quarter and the Arab Market, and visit Lions Gate, Dolorosa, and the Church of Holy Sepulchre. Tonight you have the chance to see the city lit up at night, with an optional light show.

DAY 3 - Jerusalem


For our second day in Jerusalem, you have the option to go beyond the monuments and dig deeper into ancient life, with a free day to explore. Maybe step back in history at the Israel Museum to view the Dead Sea Scrolls and see what the city might have looked like in ancient times with the Second Temple Model. Or take up the chance to visit the ancient fortress of Masada and float in the Dead Sea on our optional day trip, or foodies can opt to explore a new side to the city on a BiteMojo food tour.

DAY 4 - Jerusalem to Haifa


It's been incredible, but it's time to move on from Jerusalem and discover more of Israel. On our way out of Jerusalem, we'll make a visit to the sobering site of the Yad Vashem Museum and Memorial, also known as The World Holocaust Remembrance Centre.


Here in Haifa we'll discover life outside of the cities on a Kibbutz, a collective community way of living, unique to Israel. We'll enjoy a traditional dinner here at the Kibbutz and experience Israeli hospitality.

DAY 5 - Haifa to Tel Aviv


Waving goodbye to Kibbutz life in Haifa, today we have our sights set for Tel Aviv.

Tel Aviv

Bustling, modern, fresh and exciting, charming cafes rub shoulders with ancient monuments here in Israel’s second-largest city, translating to 'Hill of Spring'. After all the ancient history we've absorbed on this trip, you'll have the whole afternoon and evening free to orientate yourself into the urban vibes of Tel Aviv.

DAY 6 - Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv

Today we'll meet Doris Hiffawi as part of a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® experience and enjoy famous Anton coffee and sweets as Doris invites us to her home in the Ajami neighborhood of Jaffa. She will share her personal story of a Christian girl growing up in a Jewish, Muslim, and Christian area. Her heartfelt story shows the complexity of the mixed population city, speaks to the Arab Christian identity in Israel, and explores the true meaning of female empowerment in the area.The rest of the day is free for you to explore at your own pace, and in a city inundated with beaches, parks, museums, shopping centres and cafes, we promise you won't get bored. Keep it high energy with a day full of seeing the sights and sinking your teeth into Tel Aviv’s eclectic culinary scene, or slow it down with a day spent perusing boutiques with an ice cream in hand. An extra special option group dinner tonight eating in the homes of Tel Aviv locals will be our farewell to this incredible journey we've been on together.

DAY 7 - End Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv

It’s been one incredible adventure, but all good things must come to an end. After a hearty breakfast, we’ll say our goodbyes and swap details. We sense new adventures on the horizon!
