Blending religious history with advance agriculture

From the cities built by King Herod, to religious sites of Jesus, to exceptionally modern dairy farms and irrigated fruit…………..there’s a lot to learn during 10 days.

We overnight in Kibbutz Guest Houses and experience their communal way of life and modern farming methods. Then there are the places you have read about the Sea of Galilee, Mount of Olives, Nazareth, Mt Tabor and the garden of Gethsemane. We’ll see it all. The Mibbutz Gevulot will show you how scarce water is utilized in irrigating their varied orchards and field crops. Kibbutz Tzora in the Judean hills boasts Israel’s most modern dairy farm.

In Jerusalem, we see a miniature model of the city as it was 2000 years ago. At Sale Eliyahu Kibbutz, we learn their techniques of organic farming as well as biological pest control methods and natural pollination.

In the Jordan Valley past Jericho we travel to the lowest place on earth, the Dead Sea, and visit the Qumran caves where the Dead Sea scrolls were found. Ein Gedi is a desert oasis near Massada, King Herod’s winter palace that we visit as well. We will travel in an air-conditioned bus accompanied by an English speaking guide. This is undoubtedly one of the most historical and agriculturally diverse tours that we have ever planned. Don’t miss it.
