Tour the coastal cities of Israel as we drive north of Tel Aviv and make our first stop in Caesarea. Here we tour the remains of an ancient Roman port city and see the theater, hippodrome, and ruins of palaces, temples, and bathhouses. We travel further north along the coast to the port city of Haifa. Here we see the terraced Baha’i Gardens on Mt. Carmel and learn about the Baha’i faith. Continuing all the way to Israel’s border with Lebanon the tour takes you to the sea caves of Rosh HaNikra. Here we can enter the cave chambers and tunnels where waves crash against the rocks. We return south and the tour visits the Crusader city of Acre. Here we tour the Crusader fortress built in the 12th century, the Ottoman structures, and a former Turkish and British Mandate citadel prison.

This tour to the incredible coastal cities of Caesarea, Rosh HaNikra, Haifa, and Acre starts as we travel north of Tel Aviv along the coastal road. We pass the beach resort cities of Herzilya and Natanya then arrive in Caesarea. Our Caesarea tour takes us through the remains of Caesarea Maritima, an ancient Roman city constructed by Herod, King of Judea in about 25-13 BC.
The port city had a theater, hippodrome, temples, palaces, and other structures. Many have been excavated and preserved. The theater is still used today for performances by leading artists. Later Caesarea became a Byzantine capital. Then the Crusaders established a city here surrounded by massive fortified walls.
Continuing on our tour we pass through Haifa, Israel’s third-largest city built on the slope of Mount Carmel facing the sea. The Haifa tour stops at the Baha’i Gardens where 19 terraces flow down Mt. Carmel. The terraces are planted with geometric precision and adorned with flowers, fountains, and statues. At the center of the garden is the Shrine of Bab. Your tour guide will tell you about the Baha’i, their beliefs, and the significance of the gardens.
Next, the tour reaches the extreme northern border where Israel meets Lebanon and the sea crashes against the white cliffs of Rosh HaNikra. Over millennia nature has hollowed out a labyrinth of tunnels and caves in the rock. The reflection of the white rock onto the blue water creates a magical turquoise color. Once the caves were only accessible from the water but today tourists can take a cable car down to the caves.
As the tour makes its way south on our return journey we stop in the Crusader City of Acre (Acco). Above ground, there is a lively Ottoman-era city with a busy market and fishing harbor. Beneath the surface is a complete Crusader city built in the 12th century. See fortified walls and a moat that even Napoleon was not able to overcome. Tour the Crusader remains the Turkish citadel and see sites used during the British Mandate. The tour leaves Acre and returns south along the coast.
