This trip is a great way to see the diverse natural and architectural splendor of the northern part of the country. We learned a lot, marveled at a lot, and really enjoyed the experience in the grottoes (it’s a fun walk through the tunnels—you’ll soon learn why). Our guide was very knowledgeable, too. At the end of our time in Akko, the guide went to the citadel without telling the whole group to join him, which was a little strange, but it was an overall incredible day.

Professional, well-programmed and well-timed. Go ahead and book. Amazing sights. An intact Roman theatre, chariot racing hippodrome, Herod's swimming pool and aqueducts, dreamlike Bahai gardens, a Crusader fort and grottos and a cable car right up on the Lebanese border.All highly interesting spectacles. Very knowledgeable guide with a great sense of humour.

extraordinary

Perfect except the food. The fantastic guide showed that he knew the subject well. The driver, without having seen the odometer, I think he was speeding.

excellent excursion

You can't get more out of it in one day. The guide Yuyal, excellent. Perhaps the tour should be done in two days.

This was an amazing trip with an amazing guide.

Very well coordinated. The guide & bus driver was very knowledgeable and a real pleasure to be with the entire day!
