Israel is one of the most fascinating countries in the world. Although it’s no bigger than Wales, in cultural terms it’s a giant. Jerusalem is the capital of the three great monotheistic religions. It’s a city buzzing with life, and yes, tension.
You will see the Dome of the Rock, the Wailing Wall and the Temple Mount. What’s more, Israel is the most gay-friendly country in the Middle East, and Tel Aviv boasts the best gay scene in the region. You’ll also get the chance to float weightlessly in the Dead Sea and see the ancient ruins of biblical times.

Group Trip Breakdown
Days 1, 2 And 3 - Jerusalem
We’ll meet at our hotel at 4 pm and our brilliant tour guide will show us the sights. There’s no place on earth like Jerusalem, and in terms of historical significance, it’s arguably unrivalled. It’s been a part of the Roman, British and Ottoman Empires and has the sights to prove it. You can get lost in the winding streets of the old city, exploring teeming bazaars and marvel at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Jerusalem a city that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Day 4 - Dead Sea And Masada
We’ll be heading to the Dead Sea, which is the lowest point on earth, and rich with healing minerals. You can float weightlessly in its buoyant waters. We shall see the ruins of King Herod’s palace by the clifftop fortress of Masada. The landscapes you’ll see are truly mindblowing.
Days 5. 6 And 7 - Tel Aviv
Sometimes referred to the Mediterranian’s Manhatten, Tel Aviv is a liberal, cosmopolitan coastal city. It has a great gay scene and popular gay beach. We will go to Tel Aviv for the weekend, so if nightlife is your thing we’ll be there at the optimal time. By day there are more cultural activities to explore than you can fit into one trip. You can stroll down Rothschild Boulevard, shop, take a day trip to Haifa or just soak up the sun. Tel Aviv will be our final stop – unless you’re carrying on to Jordan with the 11-day explorer trip. We can arrange a return flight for you at any point on the 8th day.
