OLD CITY, JERUSALEM
The centre of the three major Monotheistic religions of the world, the Old City of Jerusalem should be on every traveller's bucket list. Nowhere else in the world can you hear the holy sounds of the Muezzin's call to prayer, Church bells and the cries at the Wailng Wall; a truly holy cacophony of sound. The city envelopes all your senses as to see is to feel and to really experience you have to taste the Jerusalem mix.
JERUSALEM IN DEPTH
After covering the Old City of Jerusalem go further afield to visit the Churches situated on the Mount of Olives - Pater Nostre, Dominus Flevit and the Church of Gethsemane. In the second half of the day, travel back in time to the City of David and connect with the Biblical roots of the Holy Land.

Many tales and legends have developed around the conquerers and rulers of the area that are waiting to be told while wondering through quaint alleyways.

MARKET AND FOOD TOURS
From the spices of the Old City, to the Iraqi home cooked delicacies of the Jerusalem Machaneh Yehudah Market; from the Borekas of the Ramleh Market to the Juices of Shuk Levinski in Tel Aviv - tasting your way through Israel is the best way to experience a culture.

TEL AVIV BETWEEN THE MARGINS
Between the Margins of Old Jaffa and Modern Tel Aviv, lies 2 kilometres of neighbourhoods that have "fallen between the cracks". Discover the communities that pioneered these areas, their trials and tribulations but most of all their creativity expressed by the many contemporary art galleries found here. A tour of the Bus Station demonstrates how these areas have adapted and who is reclaiming them today.
