A World of Discovery

Israel Tours

With a long coastline on the eastern Mediterranean Sea and a small window onto the Red Sea at the Gulf of Eilat, Israel offers restful beach breaks as well as a fascinating history.

The three major monotheistic religions – Christianity, Islam and Judaism – all have ties to the region and the Holy Land is home to a vast mix of culture, making it a fascinating destination.

We offer a range of travel styles to Israel including guided group tours, private journeys and tailor made holidays. We also recommend combining a visit to Israel with a trip to nearby Egypt and Jordan.

We look forward to welcoming you on an adventure to Israel soon.

Israel Private Tours

As well as being a site of pilgrimage, the Sea of Galilee also offers a host of outdoor adventures in a gorgeous setting. The Dead Sea is well known for its therapeutic waters and a perfect spot for a bit of spa pampering and rejuvenation. If some downtime and R&R on golden sands appeals, Israel's Mediterranean shoreline offers beautiful beaches and coastal charm. It would be a sin to miss Tel Aviv (no pun intended!) - a cultural and vibrant beach-side city that never sleeps, renowned for its lively nightlife, wonderful entertainment, arts, festivals and gastronomy.

Fantastic ! Well organised and arranged. Topics of interest met all my needs. Great group of people.

Areas for improvement. I arrived two days too early because I was on my own was stuck in a hotel for two days because I wasn't sure of dress code etc to venture out. I had to get my own transport from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. I could have started the tour on the day which meant I had to visit the Dead Sea separately and pay an extra fee for it.

Overall great experience! ”

The tour through Israel was fantastic. We enjoyed every moment of it and the hotel was wonderful. Sharif our Tour Guide has a wide knowledge of the history of Israel and also the religious history of the country. Sharif's pleasant personality together with his knowledge of the country made it one of the most unforgettable holidays we have had in a very long time. We like to thank On The Go Tours for their excellent organization of the tour but most of all their Tour Guide Sharif Abdo who introduced us to the culture, the history and the feeling of the country and the people of Israel. ”

Highlights of a tour to Israel

We offer guide group based travel and private itineraries to Israel, including Nazareth, Galilee, Bethlehem and Jerusalem. With its colourful bazaars, tiny winding alleys and legendary sites like the Wailing Wall and the Church of the Sepulchre, exploring Jerusalem is like taking a step back in time. Israel is also known for its diverse and picturesque landscapes, from the Negev Desert in the south to the mountain ranges of Galilee, Carmel, Golan and the impressive Great Rift Valley and it offers a wonderful range of attractions. Nothing quite beats a bit of beach time R&R at the end of a cultural tour and we recommend combining a tour of the Holy Lands with a few days at Eilat on the Red Sea of a spa at famed buoyant Dead Sea.

Recommended places to visit in Israel

Temple of the Mount | Jerusalem | Israel
Holy City


At the forefront of Christianity, Judaism and Islam, Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities in the world and brimming with sacred sites, historic monuments and remarkably well-preserved architecture. Must-see sights include the beautiful Old City, stunning 7th century Dome of the Rock, revered Wailing Wall, Church of Holy Sepulchre, plus the amazing views from Mount of Olives.

Church of the Annunciation | Nazareth | Israel
Arab Capital


Best known as the home of Jesus and the Virgin Mary, Nazareth contains a number of Christian holy sites. The Old City has a charming architectural beauty with narrow cobbled lanes just begging to be explored, while modern day Nazareth on the other hand is a vibrant Arab city with a small town feel. Make sure you visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, St Gabriel’s Church and the Greek Catholic Synagogue-Church.

Tel Aviv Coastline | Israel
The White City

Tel Aviv

Arguably the trendiest destination in The Middle East, Tel Aviv is where you’ll find modern art galleries, cool cafes, artisan boutiques, fine dining and wonderful theatres. Set on a gorgeous stretch of the Mediterranean coast, this ever-changing metropolis is Israel’s cultural capital but despite its modern vibe you can still discover remnants of its ancient past in Old Jaffa, just south of the city.

Sea of Galilee | Israel
Pilgrimage site

Sea of Galilee

Best known for its Gospel associations with Jesus Christ, the Sea of Galilee is a natural pilgrimage sites for Christians, but there is so much more to it. As the largest freshwater lake in Israel with beaches, hiking trails and water sports, the area is also a prime recreational spot. Travellers will find the ancient fishing village of Capernaum and the holy city of Tiberias on its shores too.

Dead Sea | Israel
Bob like a cork

Dead Sea

Once one of nature’s best kept secrets, today the buoyant waters of the Dead Sea attract throngs of travellers every year in search of its therapeutic properties and astounding beauty. No trip to Israel would be complete without rejuvenating body and soul here – bob in its warm turquoise waters, slap on some mineral-rich Dead Sea mud and while away the day.

Bethlehem vista | Israel
Birthplace of Jesus


Nicknamed the City of David, Bethlehem is known as the cradle of biblical history and no visit to Israel would be complete without a stop here. The focal point of the city is Manger Square, where you can find the famous Church of Nativity, which Christians have long believed marks the site where Jesus Christ was born.

Hi Sarah. In between holidays at the moment (isn't life a bore :-). Had an absolutely wonderful and exhilarating time in Israel and the trip went beyond my expectations. The guide, Marc, was brilliant and extremely knowledgeable, and the small group of 14 got on famously, despite the varying age group (20 - 86) and nationalities. We were very lucky indeed. All in all though a most memorable trip, and I would definitely travel with On The Go Tours on a future occasion. ”
