HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Explore the Negev Desert, spotting constellations unimpeded by light pollution, and spending a night under the stars.
  • Walk the Way of Sorrows – the path Jesus took to the crucifixion, according to the Bible, and see the empty tomb he is said to have risen from.
  • Stop by a social organisation and enjoy a drink of their local drop at responsible boutique winery that employs adults with disabilities.
  • Wash off the dust of the desert with a float in the salty waters of the Dead Sea – a surreal experience that has to be felt to be believed.
The Holy Land Highlights tour starts in Tel Aviv and ends in Jerusalem. The Holy Land Highlights is a walking tour that takes 8 days taking you from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and through other destinations in Israel.

A journey through the Holy Land is way more than just a pilgrimage. Entrenched in the ancient but emphatically modern in outlook, nominally Jewish but with lots of Muslim and Christian influence, the complexities of Israel and the Palestinian Territories keeps even the most seasoned history buff intrigued. Eat Israeli street food in Tel Aviv, check out the terraced Bahai Gardens in Haifa, run your hands over the Western Wall, stroll around Manger Square and head out graffiti-spotting in Bethlehem, take a dip in the salty Dead Sea and journey into the Negev Desert to spend a night under the stars. Israel and the Palestinian Territories have more than a bit of history, they are brimming with life.

“Absolutely the best tour I have ever taken. We visited the highlights of Morocco, covered many different regions of the country. I especially enjoyed learning about the Berber people and the Nomads. Our tour guide Mohammed was efficient, organized and attentive. He took care of each person in the group and made accommodations for everyones needs. Love, love, love this trip! It exceeded my expectations!!!”

We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.

Is this trip right for you:
  • As the days get warmer, temperatures can start to soar in this region. From April to October, to avoid the midday heat, we start some days very early (i.e. 5 am). Though we try to make things as comfortable for you as possible, please be prepared for these conditions.
  • Sites can get congested during peak travel periods with coaches of large pilgrim groups. We do our best to plan our visits around these times but sometimes it is unavoidable. There may be delays, queues and private services that prevent us from entering the site. Your trip leader will manage this as best as they can on the day.
  • Some of the sites we visit involve walking on rocky and/or steep hillsides, where there is often little or no shade. Comfortable walking shoes and a hat will make it easier to explore the sights.
  • Known as 'baksheesh' in the Middle East, tipping is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry. If you are satisfied with the services provided a tip is appropriate and always appreciated. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels.
  • With so much to see and do, Israel and the Palestinian Territories can sometimes be expensive. Expect to pay more than you would in other Middle Eastern countries for a lot of things. It might be a good idea to do some research about places to eat, for example, before you arrive.
