Our Caesarea, Wine Country, and Kibbutz Experience Tour starts from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Available with guaranteed departures, this is a special trip to some of Israel’s most exciting offerings. Start the day visiting a Kibbutz, a world-famous and unique form of collaborative community found only in Israel, most traditionally focused on agriculture. Tour the Kibbutz facilities and learn about the fascinating way of life from a local Kibbutz member. Next, continue to Caesarea, and visit King Herod’s Roman Port, a spectacular archaeological site which was once the world’s most advanced harbor, built by King Herod the Great. Tour Caesarea’s Hippodrome, amphitheater, and learn the history via a unique audio-visual experience. Next, head to the quaint town of Zichron Yaakov on the southern slopes of Mount Carmel, the heart of Israel’s Wine Country. Enjoy a wine tour at a leading Israeli winery as you learn the wine-making process, hear about Israel’s burgeoning wine industry, and of course, enjoy a wine-tasting to wrap up a day full of experience and memories.

With some of Israel’s greatest treasures included, our Caesarea, Wine Country, and Kibbutz Experience Tour is really one not to be missed. Providing a more off-the-beaten track and experiential flavor than a typical tour, this trip is self guided, however a local Kibbutz member will lead through their home, and a wine expert will lead through the winery and wine-tastings. This tour begins and ends conveniently from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and runs with guaranteed departures.
