For your convenience, although there is a large variety of tours from both Ashdod and Haifa ports, you are encouraged to design your own tour according to your particular interests.

To the south, one of the most popular options is a full day tour of Jerusalem or  a combination of Jerusalem and Bethlehem, but  a swim in the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth beckons many, as does Masada, where the Jewish Zealots made their last stand against the Roman army in 73 CE.

Along the Mediterranean coast there are Crusader Acco (Acre), Roman/Byzantine Caesarea and modern Tel Aviv and Jaffa (Joppa).

For the Christian pilgrim Nazareth, birthplace of Jesus, and the Christian sites on the shores of the Kinneret (the Sea of Galilee) are a must , especially  Mount Beatitudes Capernaum.
