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.
Travelling beyond the sites, we've included a few interesting experiences on our group tours to Israel - walk the Via Dolorosa to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, head for the sandy white beaches of Tel Aviv, discover mouthwatering Middle Eastern mezzes, tape a dip in the mineral rich Dead Sea and try you hand at a pavement side game of backgammon.
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.

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. ”
