Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, no one knows how long it will be until we can fly around the globe to visit one another and take vacations, but now is a great time to plan your next trip to Israel. Dream about all the places that you want to visit, and speak to the experts at Shatour Israel Experience who can make it happen.
Visiting Israel after Corona
Throughout the Coronavirus crisis, Israel has shown itself to be one of the best prepared and safest countries, with excellent healthcare facilities. The country hopes to be open for business very soon, with plans in place to keep everyone safe and healthy. Because Shatour has always worked with families and small groups, we are uniquely placed to ensure that your tour of Israel is well-organized and hygienic, with your own private vehicle and guide.
First Visit to Israel?
If this is your first time in the Holy Land, we can help you pick out the unmissable sights to include in your itinerary. That probably includes not only the Old City of Jerusalem, with sites holy to the world’s three main religions, but also Jerusalem’s unique Arab Shuk and fresh produce market. For Christian visitors, we can guide you around Bethlehem and Nazareth, and explore the Galilee region where many of the New Testament stories took place. Historical highlights in Northern Israel might include the Sea of Galilee at Tiberius, the Templar Tunnels in Acco, the Roman Amphitheater at Caesarea, or Zichron Yaakov, particularly if you enjoy wine tasting.
Tel Aviv is Israel’s ‘Big Orange’ – the city that never sleeps! Here you can explore the Bauhaus architecture of the White City, or tour historical sites from the establishment of the Jewish State, including the brave soldiers who won the War of Independence. Once you have explored the Mediterranean Coast, you will want to visit a very different beach at the Dead Sea – the lowest place on earth and a unique experience for all the senses.
Family Israel Tours
If you are thinking of touring Israel with the family, it’s important to schedule your days to suit every member of your group. Your kids may want to enjoy an energetic activity, while grandparents prefer a leisurely museum tour. Shatour’s expert tour planners are used to squaring this circle and creating itineraries that work for everyone. Luckily Israel is a small country, so it is often possible to schedule several different activities that are close to one another, to keep everyone happy. We employ friendly, knowledgeable and licensed tour guides who specialize in working with children and teenagers, and know how to take care of Grandma too!
Special Interest Tours
Shatour has put together recommendations for specialized tours for specific interest groups. We work with the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel to organize nature-focused and environmental tours of the country. We also run culinary and wine tasting tours, art and graffiti tours, and more. Israel offers exciting opportunities for cycling and extreme sports, and these can be woven into your tour of Israel’s historical sites around the country.
