Travelers Reviews

What To Expect

This Golan Heights tour sets off traveling north and takes you up the coast before turning inland and traveling through the Plain of Armageddon and past Megiddo. We travel through the green pastures and rolling hills of the Galilee and look down on the Sea of Galilee. To the east of the Sea of Galilee the Golan Heights await us. We make our way up the Golan Heights through the small communities, vineyards, farmlands and forests. We pass Hamat Gader famed for its hot springs that have been enjoyed by man since the Roman-era. We reach Shalom Observatory high on the basalt cliffs of the Golan. It is clear why this point is of such strategic importance as we can even see as far as Tiberius on the opposite shore of the Sea of Galilee.
The next stop on this Golan Heights tour is Katzrin, the site of excavations that revealed a settlement from the 1st century Mishnah and 4th century Talmudic periods. Parts of the village have been restored including the synagogue, homes and an ancient oil press. We stop in modern-day Katzrin to visit the Golan Antiquities Museum. Here we see archaeological findings from the Golan and a short film about the Jewish Second Temple Era city of Gamla.
The tour continues to Mount Bental where parts of Syrian fortifications have remained. We walk through the Syrian trenches and bunkers that were taken by the Israeli forces in the 1967 Six Day War. Since 1974 this has been a peaceful border and from this elevated location we can look over into neighboring Syria; the Syrian capital is just 50 km from here. The Golan Heights tour comes to an end as we drive through the lush countryside leaving the Galilee behind and make our way back towards Tel Aviv.
