Taking a Tour of Israel
What Natural Wonders Can You Find on Tours of Israel?
There’s a lot that can be found on tours of Israel, including great natural spots like the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth. There’s so much salt in it that even the worst swimmers will be able to float in it, and its mud is actually good for your health, thanks to the many minerals that is holds. The Makhtesh Ramon canyon is another great place to visit. Here you can see the many layers of the planet and the amazing story that they tell.
Are there Historically-Based Tours of Israel?
There are many tours that tell the country’s history over thousands of years, including day trips that go through Jaffa, an Arab stronghold during the crusades that’s now part of Tel Aviv, or a trip to Masada where Jewish nationalists famously committed mass suicide rather than surrender to the Romans, and tours of Jerusalem with the histories of many faiths, cultures and nations intertwined in one city.
Can I Go on Pilgrimage Tours of Israel?
Judaism, Christianity and Islam all have sites integral to their history and faith, and there are many tours of Israel that go to the holiest sites in these religions, from the Western Wall of the old Temple, the holiest site in Judaism, to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the tomb of Christ, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, one of Islam’s holiest sites outside of Mecca. All of these are in Jerusalem, and no matter what your beliefs, you will find yourself closer to God after visiting them. Christians can also visit the nearby city of Bethlehem, or head out to Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee to explore these landmarks and walk in the footsteps of Jesus.
