DAY 1 - TEL AVIV
Upon arrival in Israel, you will be met by a Ya'lla Tours USA representative and transferred to your Tel Aviv hotel for overnight.

Start your tour with an orientation of Tel Aviv. Visit the Independence Hall, where David Ben Gurion announced the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Continue to Rothschild Blvd. and nearby streets to see some of the 4,000 Bauhaus buildings that make up the White City, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Then to the Palmach Museum to see, hear, and feel what it meant to be a youngster fighting for Israel’s independence.
End the day with a drive to Holon, 4 miles south of Tel Aviv, to visit the amazing Children’s Museum, where you may take part in either The Dialogue in Silence or The Walk in the Dark, whichever is available that day. Continue to the flea market in Jaffo. Browse the art galleries in Old Jaffo and make a stop at the nearby, beautifully renovated Tahana (old railroad station), with many upscale boutiques and cafes. Return to your hotel for overnight.

Depart Tel Aviv and drive along the Mediterranean coast to the ancient city of Caesarea, once the Roman capital of Palestine. Continue to Mt. Carmel and the city of Haifa. Visit the Naval and Clandestine Immigration Museum. Continue to Beth Shearim and see the Tombs of the Sanhedrin. On to Acko for a visit to the Knights' Halls. Drive north to visit the grotto of Rosh Hanikra.
Continue to Tiberias for overnight.

DAY 4 - TIBERIAS
Drive to one of the four holiest Jewish cities, Zafed, steeped in the mystical tradition of Kabbalah. Visit the art galleries and the ancient synagogues and meet David Friedman for a talk on Kabbalah.
Continue on the narrow road to Alma and Dalton and visit the Dalton Winery.
Continue to Nebi Yesha and an old British police station from which Arabs attacked Jewish villages until 1948. Heroic battles took place here. Visit the memorial, rarely seen by foreign tourists. Continue to Kibbutz Manara and take the cable car down to Kyriat Shmonah, a city that has suffered more than any other from attacks by the PLO and Hezbollah. On to Tel Hai, the site where Yoseph Trumpeldor lived and where he died in 1921, inspiring one of Israel’s greatest modern legends.
Continue off the beaten track of the Golan Heights by 4X4 vehicle and stop to gaze down over the Galilee as the Syrians once did. In the Valley of the Tears, hear the moving story of the brave Kahalani’s battle to secure the Golan Heights during the Yom Kippur War. On to Mt. Bental for an outstanding view of the Upper Galilee and the Golan Heights. Return to Tiberias for overnight. Visit the Caprece Diamond Center, and see Israel's largest export industry in action.

Walk the newly opened Pilgrims Tunnel direct to the Old City. Visit the Davidson Center and see a multi-media presentation about Jerusalem in the days of the Second Temple. Walk to the Western Wall, the holiest site in Judaism and the only visible remains of Herod’s splendid Second Temple. Walk through the excavated Western Wall Tunnel, huge arched spaces which link to a water tunnel cut through the rock to the north, apparently dug in the Hasmonean period (163 to 37 BCE). Drive to Mt Zion and visit David's Tomb. Take a walking tour of the Jewish quarter, including the Burnt House and the Herodian Quarter.
