What people are saying about Caesarea

An extraordinary experience! Very tight program, wonderful views, a lot of history (great presentation - even young people, like our 13 year old daughter, Amir Call Or, the full name of our guide, was able to inspire). Israel is explained and brought closer to you from a different perspective. Thanks Amir!

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided interesting and helpful information about the places we saw. We did not spend an excess of time in any of the shopping venues, which I appreciated since it gave us more time to spend at Caesarea and Acre.
