Many cruise ships in the Mediterranean make a stop in Israel docking in Ashdod or Haifa. From both Ashdod and Haifa you can take Israel shore excursions and visit top attractions across the country. A large variety of suggested itineraries are offered.
The shore excursions are usually private tours which means that the suggested itineraries can be adjusted to suit your interests. Israel shore excursions are arranged in advance and your tour guide waits for you at the port when you disembark. From there you travel in air-conditioned transportation and at the end of your shore excursion, you will be returned safely to port in time for your outgoing journey.
Popular Israel shore excursion itineraries include visits to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea – these top destinations should not be missed! In Jerusalem you can walk in the footsteps of Jesus; pray at the Western Wall; see the Dome of the Rock and more. Christians may want to include a visit to Bethlehem in their shore excursion itinerary.
If arriving in Haifa you can tour northern Israel and visit Nazareth, sites along the shore of the Sea of Galilee and the Golan. Shore excursion destinations can include the Crusader city of Acre; the Roman city of Caesarea and the mountain-top fortress of Masada. Your tour guide could take you to the vibrant city of Tel Aviv to enjoy its markets, café culture, and stunning beaches.
The price of Israel shore excursions is determined by the distance covered; the vehicle size; duration of the tour and the language spoken. The shore excursion price is calculated according to a 10 hour day. The ship-to-shore excursions are available in several languages and on all days of the week.
