What To Expect - Megiddo and the Jezreel Valley Private Tour

This private tour will take you north along the coastal road and turn inland towards the fertile farmlands of the Lower Galilee. The first stop is at Tel Megiddo, an archaeological mound where 26 layers of successive ancient cities were built one on top of the other. Megiddo was once an important 15th century BC Canaan city and you can see the excavated remains of temples, palaces, gates, stables, and a complex water system.

The tour continues to Beit Alfa, in the Beit She'an Valley where there is an excavated 5th-century synagogue. The synagogue originally had a courtyard, second-story balcony and main hall with an incredible floor mosaic showing the Hebrew months and their corresponding zodiac signs. While in Beit She'an Valley tour an eco-farm and learn about organic agriculture, chemical-free pest control, and communal living on the farm. While here you may want to enjoy a delicious lunch made from locally grown produce. 

The last stop of the day is at the Beit She'an National Park which encompasses the ruins of an incredible Roman and Byzantine city. You can walk through the well-preserved remains and envision what it must have been like almost 2,000 years ago. Stroll down the cardo, or main street, lined with tall columns; see the traditional bathhouse; the remains of temples; palaces and even a magnificent Roman theater.
