Tours which focus on sites and stories from the modern times, from the days of Zionism and the renewal of Jewish presence in the land of Israel, through the times of World Wars and the British mandate until the formation of the state of Israel and the wars during its existence.

  • The 20th century in Galilee was marked by the revival of Jewish presence in the land of Israel, and the struggle which led to Israel's independence. Neighborhoods and cities, sites and museums show us the events which were part of this fascinating history. 

  • The Independence war, the formative war of Israel, was a difficult and a bloody war. It's especially true about the area which is between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem (the road to Jerusalem and the Judean mountains on their two sides), and about Jerusalem itself.

  • Tel Aviv is the symbol of the modern day Israel, "the first Hebrew city", where the Declaration of Independence was signed, the cultural and the economical capital of the state and the city of the youth.

  • In the north of the country there are many cities, towns and village which played an important role in the history of Jews and Zionism: Zichron Ya'akov, with one of the oldest and the biggest venires in Israel, promenade from the 19th century and several interesting historica

  • The ideals of the Zionist movement included a change of the way of life of the Jews, which would bring the Jews back to agriculture and which emphasized social values of the movement.

  • Edmund Rothschild had an enormous impact on Israel's development during the repatriation waves in the late 19th and early 20th century, as he supported the foundation of many towns, settlements and projects.

  • Many people have contributed to the foundation of the state of Israel, and many sites tell us about the actions and the legacy of these people – Theodor Herzl, Joseph Trumpeldor, Ze'ev Jabotinsky, David Ben Gurion, Pinhas Rothenberg, Yigal Alon, Moshe Dayan and many others.

  •         The end of the 19th century was marked by the beginning of massive Jewish return to the Land of Israel, and many of the first towns and villages were formed near Tel Aviv of today – Rishon LeZion, Rehovot, Gedera, Mazkeret Batya, Ness Ziona and more.

  • Safed, one of the four holy cities of Judaism, is known as a spiritual and Kaballic center, with beautiful views and remains of a big Crusader center of the Templars. The story of battles over Safed during the War of Independence is one of the most interesting stories of that war.  

  • Zichron Ya'akov and Binyamina are located on the edge of the Carmel mountain, near the sea. They are famous for their wineries, when 3 of them are among the largest and the oldest wineries in Israel.
