We are an Israeli family living in Israel. Israel Travel Ideas is our way to share our trips in our small country and give you helpful tips to make your next vacation in Israel even more enjoyableWhy register to our site?

You'll be pleased to hear that we do not just read somewhere about all the sightseeing tours listed on the site…

But we have walked, climbed, crawled, and driven to all of these sites (in some cases, even several times.)

We have of course shot many pictures during each one of the trips and also shot video clips in some of them. For you to enjoy, we have also created great comic strips and timeline clips that tell the history of the different places.

We ate in the restaurants (some excellent and some not as good!) and we were accommodated in each place we have recommended (for better or worst).

Finally, we've assembled and edited all the information and the little details into special, comprehensive, and beautiful itineraries that also include dubbing, videos, and detailed touring maps. 

Our goal is to show you the routes and places we have visited and walked, covering Israel from our own authentic perspective and to present our informative and enriching tours, together with our personal stories. Enjoy!

I, Uzzi, responsible for writing all the itineraries in this website, have lived and breathed in Israel for almost 70 years, and I like to think of myself as knowledgeable of Israel through its length, width, and depth (like the Dead Sea!). Any small place in Israel is of interest to me. Through this website, I want to bring you the authentic stories, the true history, the local culture from the perspective of a real Israeli. I have studied and explored in depth every trip and I hope that you would get full satisfaction from this site.

This site is an expression of our passion for Israel that we love so much. While this site continues to grow, you can expect to see…

The best tours in Israel -- from Metula in the north to Eilat in the south. Detailed itineraries of every city and region in Israel, and all the other pearls and jams of Israel.

Shopping tours. Excursion to Israel's main shopping streets (someone said Dizengoff Street? Luxurious Kikar Hamedina square?), and the many shopping malls scattered throughout Israel.

Lifestyle Tours. How does the life of the most religious Jewish people (the Haredim) feel? How is it to live as a Bedoui? How does it feel like to live as a Samaritan? What the hell is a Kibbutz? I want to show you all of these in our itineraries.

Tours of Beaches. As Israel is small, it has a huge variety of different types of beaches. To understand the abundance of unique beaches in Israel, it is sufficient just to mention the Mediterranean Sea, the Sea of ​​Galilee, the Dead Sea, and the Red Sea.

Extreme adventure tours, including rafting, parachuting, horse riding, and many more.

Accommodation Itineraries, of boutiques, hotels, hostels, rentals in the cities, as well as alternative accommodation and camping throughout Israel.

Baha'i Gardens in Haifa
The Bahai Gardens in Haifa is comprised of nineteen terraces, sloping down gently like a set of staircase from the top of Mount Carmel to the foot of the hill. The central axis of the gardens points to the direction of the Gardens of the Bahjí in Acre, where Baha'u'llah, the founder of the Baha'i Faith, is buried. At the heart of the gardens is the Shrine of the Báb with the golden dome; this is the burial place of the prophet - the forerunner of the Baha'i Faith.
Louis Promenade
Louis Promenade in Haifa is an attraction both during the day and night. Flourishing vegetation, open lawns and benches are combined together in the promenade. Louis Promenade stretches along 400 meters overlooking the spectacular panoramic view of the Bay of Haifa all the way to Rosh Hanikra and Mt Hermon.
The German Colony
In 1869 came the Templars, a group of Protestant Christians from Germany who believed that salvation can only happen by settling in the Holy Land of Israel. They decided that Haifa was the best place to establish a colony – it had a nearby port, experienced only mild weather, and was accessible to the Galilee and the valleys.
