Best of Israel
— The Culinary & Wine Tour

The Culinary and Wine Tour brings you the best of Israel’s incredible food and wine scene on your journey through the country’s historical, cultural, and natural landmarks. Through local open-air markets, traditional cooking workshops, boutique wineries, scrumptious street food stands, and all the fascinating places in between, you’ll be amazed at how much you can do and see (and eat and drink) while still maintaining a comfortable pace.

Stage One: Welcome to Israel! B’Teyavon!

Your journey begins in Tel Aviv, the economic and technological capital of Israel, with an exploration of contemporary Israeli society, food, and culture; welcoming vibe; and beachfront lifestyle.

Stage Two: Heading North. L’Chaim!

Make your way up the scenic Mediterranean Coastal Plain and into the lush Galilee Region and explore ancient settlements, traditional Galilean cuisine, local food and wine artisans, and stunning natural phenomena.

Stage Three: On to Jerusalem. Achlah!

Continue through time and tradition to the ancient stone alleyways of the Old City and the historical and religious landmarks hidden within. You’ll also get a taste of modern Jerusalem and the local cuisine and wine culture, head down to the Dead Sea region for a day, and enjoy some authentic desert hospitality.
