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.

I am yet to even complete the Egypt portion of my tour but I couldn't wait to feedback how wonderful it has been. The ancient sites are phenomenal and our exceptional guide MoMo has explained things to us with the perfect balance of information and humour. The group bonded early and we have laughed and journeyed together through this magical country. I've felt incredibly safe and MoMo has made a point of helping each group member at every stage, to ensure a fabulous time has been had by all. The professionalism, support and excitement that MoMo has maintained is second to none. I can't recommend Egypt enough and I would very much like to return soon to further explore this beautiful, mythical and ever changing country.”

Egypt was on top of our bucket list, prior to booking we were a bit hesitant due to safety concerns from family and friends, but any hesitation we had disappeared once we contacted OTGT, every person we interacted throughout the process have been nothing but professional making our trip a wonderful experience. From Charlie Bridger who assisted us with the booking to Abdulah, the Representative/Coordinator in Cairo who was very helpful until we met with our tour guide, Alam Mido.

Alam is a great asset to OTGT, Alam is passionate about his job, he without doubt was a key contributing factor to making our trip to Egypt exceptional and beyond our expectation. Alam not only delivered what is expected from him as a tour guide, but he did so with a caring and friendly attitude. Pyramids, Temples, cruising on the Nile and enjoying the Red Sea could not have been better than with OTGT. Thank you Alam, you are an extraordinary tour guide. "Shookram"

We highly recommend Egypt.

Recommended places to visit in Israel

As the cradle of three of the world's major religions, there's a staggering wealth of religious monuments and sacred sites to seek out in Israel as well as modern cities and attractive bodies of water. Here's our pick of the best to get you started.

Dead Sea

Dead Sea | Israel

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.

Sea of Galilee

Sea of Galilee | Israel

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.

Temple of the Mount | Jerusalem | Israel

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.

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

Tel Aviv Coastline | Israel

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.

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.
