100 Tours in Israel

 

      In this section you can find a list of possible topical or regional tours – "100 Tours in Israel". In each tour there is a large variety of sites one can visit, so in fact each suggested tour is just a title at first, and its content will be made as a tailor-made tour for you, according to your wishes, the place you're staying at, the desired duration and intensity of the tour, the people of the group etc. Of course, a tour can be made as a combination of few tours from the following list, or each tour from the list can be prolonged to a tour of up to few days.

      Moreover, every tour will be made according to your wishes – for families with kids we can visit an amusement park, zoo or a chocolate factory, for art connoisseurs an art gallery, for extreme sports fan snapling or ski, etc.

      On one hand, many of the tours you'd find here focus on the most popular landmarks of Israel, and on the other hand many others are off the beaten track, and by no means this is not a comprehensive list of everything there is to do in Israel. Luckily for me and you, Israel has a great quantity and variety of amazing places to visit, even if many tourists do not get to visit them.

     In the bottom of every tour's page you'll find taglines describing it. There are geographical taglines (indicate the geographical area of the tour), historical taglines (indicate the era the tour is focusing on), topical (indicate the topic the tour is focusing on) or tour style (pilgrimage, walking city tour etc). Some taglines show the tour's importance compared to other tours – tours with "Most Visited" tagline are tours in sites which would be visited by most tourists in Israel, and "In-depth Tour" indicates that the tour goes into detail about a certain topic or a certain region.   

     You can browse through the tour list by using the taglines, and see for example all of the tours which are "Most Visited", "Christianity" or "Golan and Galilee". The full list of tags is on the side of the page.
