What To Expect - Golan Heights Private Tour

Begin your private Golan Heights tour with a drive north through the lush Galilee countryside. You’ll pass vineyards, farmlands, and forests as well as several memorials to fallen soldiers and famous battles.

Reach the Banias Nature Reserve on the slopes of Mount Hermon, Israel’s highest peak where the Banias Springs flow through thick vegetation and forests. Take a walking tour through the idyllic setting, learn about the park’s ancient temple to the Greek god Pan, and see waterfalls and streams.

Next, drive to Nimrod’s Fortress - this castle was first built about 2000 years ago, then rebuilt under the Ayyubid dynasty in the 13th century. It was occupied by the Mongols, who were defeated by the Mamluks. They reinforced the structure and added large towers. Under the Ottomans, it was used as a prison before being abandoned in the 16th century. Walk through the fortress’s excavated and restored remains before driving to Ram Lake's lookout point where we stop for lunch.

Lake Ram or Birkat el-Ram is a crater lake filled with rainwater and an underground spring. Your PRO tour guide will tell you about the many myths and legends associated with the lake, and about the remarkable archaeological findings uncovered here.

Next, drive to Mount Bental. This was the site of a Syrian outpost until it was captured by Israel during the Six-Day War in 1967. You can explore the abandoned Syrian bunkers and fortifications. Looking out across the border into Syria you can see the Syrian city of Kuneitra, and looking back across Israel enjoy the patchwork of farmlands, rolling hills, and small lakes.

The last stop before heading back is Mtzpe Gadot (Gadot Lookout). This was a Syrian army base until 1967. It overlooked the road that connected Galilee to the Golan and gave the occupants a strategic advantage over the valley below.

See the monument honoring soldiers of the Golan Brigade who fought in this area and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views of Jordan, the Hula Valley, and the Golan. This is your opportunity to enjoy the best of the Golan with your personal guide on a customized private tour.
