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 enjoyable. Why 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…
