The Negev Desert & Eilat
Sailing, parasailing, and jet skiing are also readily available activities.
It is always phenomenal to land in an area which enjoys summer weather almost all year round, and Eilat is lucky enough to have just that. Surrounded by unexpectedly colorful desert cliffs, this beach town enjoys the seclusion and tropical environment that visitors yearn for.

Everyone, whether a nature lover or not, is awestruck by the alluring wilderness.
A Fusion of ancient attractions & modern culture, which Israel is so famous for
Jerusalem, Israel's most populous city and capital, is overflowing with some of the country's most fascinating and fabulous sites. It is the perfect example of the merging of ancient attractions and modern culture which Israel is so famous for. The romantic Old City is the perfect place to learn about three religions that find their home there: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Our experienced tour guides know how to uncover the magic of the city and its historical development in the compelling and unique fashion, whether it's retracing the steps of Jesus in the Via Dolorosa or visiting King David's tomb. A stroll in the open market in the Muslim quarter is a wonderful place to buy some perfect cultural wares such as jewelry, spices, and trinkets and absorb the cultural smells and colors. Of course no visit to Jerusalem would be complete without an opportunity to partake in the authentic Middle Eastern cuisine that the city is famous for.
At night, a stunning light and sound show is projected on the walls of the Tower of David, which tells the tale of the history of Jerusalem. The Mamilla Mall, built from reconstructed historical structures, houses interesting boutiques and fine eateries; and is just another example of the harmony between ancient and modern which can be found in this beautiful city. Another important destination is the recently renovated Israel Museum which hosts a wide variety of collections from archaeological finds to contemporary art. Our unique travel itinerary allows you to absorb both the ancient historical significance of this central city and the more recent modern sites. An experience that finds the special balance between religious and secular, tradition and openness, ancient ruins and luxurious boutique pampering that will leave you with a lifetime of memories.
The Dead Sea
An Oasis of luxury in the middle of the colorful sandy Israeli desert
The Dead Sea, the world's largest natural spa, located in the lowest point on earth, has been attracting visitors for thousands of years. Today it has become an oasis of luxury in the middle of the colorful sandy Israeli desert, with its beautiful hotels, spas, and restaurants. The mud there, with its high mineral content, has long been known to be an ideal base for skin treatments and beauty products. In addition to making you gorgeous, scientists have proven that the atmosphere has health benefits that can leave your whole body feeling more youthful and vigorous. In other words, it's the closest thing to the mythological fountain of youth. The high density of the water makes swimming feel more like floating in its crisp clear waters, which gives one a better opportunity to absorb the natural beauty of the surrounding area.
A rich historical center as well, the area affords many glimpses into the developing culture of the area in Antiquity. In nearby Qumran, ancient scrolls of the Hebrew Bible and related texts which were written as far back as 408 BC were found in caves, along with Roman currency. Also nearby, is the famous fortress of Massada which was built by King Herod, where Jewish zealots held out against the Roman legion in 70 CE. No visit is complete without a hike up to the wonderfully preserved remains of Ancient architecture which provides an insight into the long-gone civilization and a wonderful vantage point from which to see the natural beauty of the area.
The setting of the sun welcomes the vibrant night life.
Tel Aviv, Israel's central urban hub that never sleeps, offers an array of various sites, smells, and experiences. In the past few years it has developed into the Gay capital of the Middle East according to OUT Magazine, with thousands of people coming for the OUTstanding Pride Week and all year. Upon entering the city one is greeted with concrete, glass, and lights of modern skyscrapers. The center of the city is spotted with the eclectic classically and modern-inspired architectural styles and the Bauhaus buildings which Tel Aviv is famous for. The serenity of the beaches, with year-round temperate weather, crystal water, and vast expanses of sand, infused exquisitely with the happening and trendy city scene which includes updated fashion and contemporary art galleries.
The neighboring Jaffa offers all the romance of an ancient port city, good for a late night stroll with a loved one or a daytime hunt for antiques. A culinary connoisseur will be happy to find a vast array of international cuisine to feast on. And, of course, the setting of the sun welcomes the vibrant night life. You can dance the night away in any one of the happening Gay clubs and bars to the music of some of the most talented DJs in the world. Once you leave the club, at the early morning hours, you can still experience the wonders of the city that never sleeps. Restaurants, boulevard cafes, and almost everything else will still be open when you are ready to tuck yourself into bed.
We've got an intimate knowledge of some of the city's best kept secrets. From which clubs play the best live music to which beaches are the most happening, we've been everywhere and seen it all. Even as the city continues to grow and develop to service the large local gay community and tourists, we make sure to stay updated and informed.
