A Fusion of ancient attractions & modern culture, which Israel is so famous for
Jerusalem, Israel's most populous city and capital, is overflowing with some of the country's most fascinating and fabulous sites. It is the perfect example of the merging of ancient attractions and modern culture which Israel is so famous for. The romantic Old City is the perfect place to learn about three religions that find their home there: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Our experienced tour guides know how to uncover the magic of the city and its historical development in the compelling and unique fashion, whether it's retracing the steps of Jesus in the Via Dolorosa or visiting King David's tomb. A stroll in the open market in the Muslim quarter is a wonderful place to buy some perfect cultural wares such as jewelry, spices, and trinkets and absorb the cultural smells and colors. Of course no visit to Jerusalem would be complete without an opportunity to partake in the authentic Middle Eastern cuisine that the city is famous for.

The Mamilla Mall, built from reconstructed historical structures, houses interesting boutiques and fine eateries; and is just another example of the harmony between ancient and modern which can be found in this beautiful city.

An experience that finds the special balance between religious and secular, tradition and openness, ancient ruins and luxurious boutique pampering that will leave you with a lifetime of memories.
The Dead Sea
An Oasis of luxury in the middle of the colorful sandy Israeli desert
The Dead Sea, the world's largest natural spa, located in the lowest point on earth, has been attracting visitors for thousands of years. Today it has become an oasis of luxury in the middle of the colorful sandy Israeli desert, with its beautiful hotels, spas, and restaurants. The mud there, with its high mineral content, has long been known to be an ideal base for skin treatments and beauty products. In addition to making you gorgeous, scientists have proven that the atmosphere has health benefits that can leave your whole body feeling more youthful and vigorous. In other words, it's the closest thing to the mythological fountain of youth. The high density of the water makes swimming feel more like floating in its crisp clear waters, which gives one a better opportunity to absorb the natural beauty of the surrounding area.
A rich historical center as well, the area affords many glimpses into the developing culture of the area in Antiquity. In nearby Qumran, ancient scrolls of the Hebrew Bible and related texts which were written as far back as 408 BC were found in caves, along with Roman currency. Also nearby, is the famous fortress of Massada which was built by King Herod, where Jewish zealots held out against the Roman legion in 70 CE. No visit is complete without a hike up to the wonderfully preserved remains of Ancient architecture which provides an insight into the long-gone civilization and a wonderful vantage point from which to see the natural beauty of the area.
