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 group tours, private tours and tailor-made holidays. We also recommend combining a holiday to Israel with a tour of nearby Egypt and Jordan.

Fantastic guide

Fantastic tour - tough to make it better ”  

• Jul 2015

First and foremost, I have to express how much I loved my time in Egypt. I have done many tours in the past and this tour was the best to date. Momo the Tour guide was absolutely exceptional. His passion and incredible knowledge of both ancient and modern Egypt was infectious. He is a very proficient Egyptologist!

Initially when travelling to Egypt I held some reservations because of the media reports at the time. At no point during the tour did I feel in anyway unsafe or threatened. I found the people to be both friendly and welcoming.

Nothing was ever too much trouble for Momo. He consistently went out of his way to ensure we were informed and had a memorable trip. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Egypt and have already recommended your company to friends and family.

I would like to express my gratitude to Momo for making my time in Egypt so memorable. ”

I was impressed with Oreon the Israeli Guide how he was so informative, took care of us as a group. Made sure we were delivered to our hotels in tiberius, Jerusalem. Also with losing my mobile phone Oreon came with me to the Police Station and was very supportive.

He worked really long hours I was impressed with his going the extra mile.

Best guide I have had on a trip I only had one exploring holiday in Egypt with Louis Verne.It would be helpful if there was a small coach as the group grew in Jerusalem.”

Highlights of a tour to Israel

We offer group tours and private tours of 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. ”
