Classic Israel Trip Itinerary

The following suggested itinerary includes most of the highlights I recommend experiencing in Israel, especially if it's your first time here.

When we speak, we can discuss any necessary adjustments, and also add special activities such as: Israeli/Druze/Muslim cooking session, IDF training experience, a trip to Jordan, water sports, unique encounters with Israeli society, kibbutz tour, political lectures from experts, outdoor meals with a private chef, Dead Sea boating or kayaking experience, night safari in the Negev Desert and more.
