Jerusalem

Located on the Judean Mountains Jerusalem has a history of over 4,000 years. Exploring Jerusalem is not an easy task to do on your own, considering its long history, its many sites of tremendous importance, the allies of the old city, and the many modern neighborhoods.
Even without touring Jerusalem, just being there and letting the atmosphere sink into you is quite an experience. No wonder some people report on the "Jerusalem Syndrome". Taking a guide, though, will help you appreciate every site visited to its full extent - the Wailing Wall, or the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the holocaust museum or the modern neighborhoods, the battle fields or the peaceful gardens.
A guide will make the rocks speak to you, so to say...
delivering such an important city to its visitors for me, is a great honor and a huge responsibility. See you in the Holy city of Jerusalem…

Judean Desert - Masada, Dead-Sea and Around

If you've seen Jerusalem already, this is the next thing to do, since you'll find here unique things to this area. The Dead Sea, you know, is the lowest place on earth (nearly 1,300 feet below sea level!), and you can actually float in it freely.

You'll drive right between two tectonic plates, you'll have chance to float on the Dead-Sea water and rejuvenate from its minerals.

You'll travel from one oasis to another, seeing Ibexesand Hyraxes, get to know the Essenes of Qumran and the Zealots of Masada, and see the more accurate location of the baptismal of Jesus.

This area of Israel, I must say, is my favorite. The tranquility you'll find there is quite unique, and the desert scenery makes you understand why monotheism started in the desert…

I'll be happy to accompany you on your journey through this dessert routes…

Galilee & Golan Heights

The north of Israel, with its Mediterranean climate, offers various sites to see. Israel is such a small place (about the size of New-Jersey, a quarter of Ireland), in a day through the Golan Heights and the Galilee, you'll travel around between the Mediterranean Sea, the border with Lebanon and the border with Syria, across the Jordan River.

The Galilee is mostly known in the Christian world, as the region where Jesus has spent most of his life, in the city of Nazareth, the capital city of the lower Galilee. Here Mary fetched water from the well named after her, and was announced by the angel Gabriel of the coming of Christ. In the nearby Kfar-Cana, Jesus did his first miracle, turning water into wine.
The city of Safed (Tsfat), being the capital city of the Upper Galilee, is the highest city in Israel and the center of Kabbalah (Jewish Mysticism), and is one of the most fascinating cities to visit.
The region is known for being populated with diverse cultural communities - the Druze, the Bedouins, Jewish "Kibbutzim", Muslim villages among others.
It offers also a visit to its many olive-oil presses or wineries, nature hikes (specially the Gospel trail, following Jesus Footsteps, from Nazareth to Kfar-Nahum, where his ministry gathred momentum).

Tel-Aviv Jaffa

Tel-Aviv – Jaffa.

Tel-Aviv and Jaffa belong to the same municipality, but are really two distinctive areas.

Tel-Aviv:  The "white city" that never sleeps…

Being the "secular capital" of Israel, Tel-Aviv offers plenty of entertainment and things to do for everyone.  Actually, the call for the establishment of Tel-Aviv, over 100 years ago, said "we need a New-York of our own!" that may put a smile on your face, as the population of the city of New York outnumbers the entire population of Israel. But never the less, I'm sure you'll find Tel-Aviv to be quite an apple, in its own way …

Jaffa: The place where St. Peter fell asleep on the roof and Prophet Jonah fled his mission

Jaffa, one of the oldest ports in the world, is today part of the modern city of Tel-Aviv.

Here, you can visit a variety of sites, tracing back the very beginning of the spread of Christianity to world, or the arrival of Jewish communities to their place of longing. Here you'll hear about the Egyptian rule, the crusaders arrival, the Ottoman period, and even about the visit of Napoleon to the city, or else enjoy its many galleries, scatered along its beautiful allies.

Bicycle Tours

Israel has many bicycle trails to offer, dessert trails, forest trails, downhill and up very steep ascents, short trails, or long trail, around the Sea of Galilee (60 km / 40 miles), or across Israel through the "Israel Trail" (Nearly 1,000 km / over 600 miles).
Israel is well organized for bicycle tours, with special accomodation for cyclers, repair shops along the way, marked trails and plenty of designated maps.
cycling is one of the better ways to travel, as you cover a lot of milage, without loosing the feeling of the land.
i'll be happy to accompany you on your physical journey through this hills, where emperors and kings once setteled...
