7 Day Israel Highlights
“While Jerusalem prays,” an old local saying goes, “Tel Aviv plays.” Israel’s two major cities are indeed a study in contrasts; sacred Jerusalem hums to the rhythm of religion and ancient history, while modern Tel Aviv throbs to the pulse of commerce and nightlife. Taken together, they offer a captivating glimpse into the old and the new, the hallowed and the hedonistic. Blending ancient sites, modern art, and a deep understanding of Israel’s complex history, this tour expertly bridges the divide.

After landing in Tel Aviv, the tour begins in the ancient city of Jerusalem, a sacred site to Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike. Here, you’ll take in the view of Jerusalem’s Old City from atop the Mount of Olives, then follow in Jesus’ footsteps through the Lion’s Gate and along the Via Dolorosa to the revered Church of the Holy Sepulchre, wander through souks to the Western Wall to the City of David archaeological site, all in the company of a private guide. Next, discover Jerusalem’s more modern side on a comprehensive full-day private guided tour of the New City – home to the Knesset, the Israel Museum (home of the Dead Sea Scrolls), and the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial – before visiting the ancient village of Ein Karem, a welcome respite from the bustling city. Later, explore the UNESCO-protected mountaintop fortress of Masada, where 1,000 Jewish Zealots kept 15,000 Roman soldiers at bay for two grueling years, then go for a restorative float in the saline-rich waters of the Dead Sea.

Next stop: the Mediterranean coast and Tel Aviv, where you’ll take a private tour of the ancient port of Jaffa, walk the handsomely restored streets of Neve Tzedek and the architecturally significant, UNESCO-protected “White City,” and learn about the vast Jewish diaspora at the Museum of the Jewish People. Finally, get an up-close-and-personal glimpse of Tel Aviv on a private tour of its cultural hotspots, including the Design Museum Holon, the Bauhaus Center, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, home to works by Chagall, van Gogh, Kandinsky, and many others.
