Tour Description

Our tour guide and mini-bus will meet you outside the reception hall of the Ashdod on the time stated after you have booked your tour and based on your ship’s arrival. We will leave the port and drive towards Acre (Akko), which is located just 22 kilometers north of Haifa.

This mixed Arab and Jewish city holds many secrets both above and underground. A small fisherman port today, this old city was once the fierce capital of the Crusaders and their last stronghold in the Holy Land. Later, it became an important Ottoman city and many elegant buildings and monuments were erected during this period.

 

We begin our tour with a visit to the underground Crusaders Knights Hall. We will walk through the narrow passes and alleys, and arrive at the old port of Akko. During the British mandate, the Jewish prisoners of the underground movement were imprisoned in the Akko prison. During this time a famous and daring escape from the prison was made, which Paul Newman portrayed in the 1960s movie: Exodus.

 

Next we will drive to Tzfat (Safed), considered one of the Four Holy Cities for the Jews and rose after the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AC. We will explore this mystical and spiritual city, with its unique synagogues, art galleries and the World Kabbalah Center.

During our time in Tzfat, we will have the option to have lunch at a local restaurant.

 

On our way back to the port, we will stop by the Baha’i Gardens and Temples. It is a magnificent view of Haifa, and you will be able to take a picture of your ship from the top. We will arrive at the port in time for your departure or overnight stay.
