For the first time in Israel, you’re invited to try out an awesome romantic/family experience, hovering over Tel Aviv in a balloon. This is a must for family vacations or birthday treats, and a special place to propose marriage. It also provides an awesome event for social occasions, with your balloon team doing their utmost to make your event unique and unforgettable. The balloon is located in Hayarkon Park, the biggest urban park in Israel and one of the biggest in the world. You will enter the balloon before rising to a height of 120 meters. You will then hover for 15 minutes during which time you will see Tel Aviv, as well as the nearby mountains and the sea. During the flight your pilot will explain to you what you see, and will answer any questions you have about the balloon. Your balloon will be registered in Israel as an aircraft with flight safety certifications provided by th...
It is quick and easy, not a lot to learn unless you ask the questions… However it is something to still do; especially if you’re not able to stay in a building that is tall enough for you to see across the city from the north to the south and along the water! The park that it is in is a beautiful park with paddle boats in the center, bike and running path all around...really enjoyed that walk to and through it!
Start the day with pick-up from your hotel in Jerusalem and head to the Dead Sea, via the Judean hills. Your drive continues from there along the shores of the Dead Sea, to the desert fortress of Masada. Arrive at Masada, where your guide will tell you about the heroic story of the Jewish fighters. You’ll ascend Masada by cable car and then tour the mountain fortress that was built by King Herod. This is the spot where the Zealots of the 1st century made their last stand against the Roman troops. You’ll explore the site to see the remains of the walls, palaces, synagogue, water cisterns, mosaic floors and Roman baths. When you've completed this part of the tour, descend Masada by cable car.

At over 2,000 years old, Jordan’s Petra is one of the world’s most stunning sites. Once home to 20,000 Nabateans, it features ancient feats of engineering to collect water, which was then sold to merchants, caravans, and other travelers making their way through the desert. Inspired by Roman architecture, the Nabateans created magnificent facades, temples and statues which can be visited today. The site is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

David Ringler is an awesome guide. With a group of 7 friends, we needed to leave a little later, no issue. The program was very fluid, adjusting to our needs. He is very upbeat and knowledgeable, speaks 7 languages and is very sociable. Even though no food/beverages were included, he bought water, beer, shisha... He will make sure the car is cool when you get back. He will get you to the quiet beach at the Dead Sea. Make sure to carve ample of time out, his stories might take a little longer than you've planned time for! :-)

Well-guided trip by 2 older men in a modern minibus. During the trip a lot was told about our whereabouts and about the country. The stay at the individual stations was relatively short, but it was perfectly sufficient for us. The food (fish fillet) in the St. Peters restaurant was really great. Salad buffet, one of three main dishes and coffee for only 80 shekels. At the end of the trip, the two tour guides even tried to get us a free taxi so that we could safely get back to our accommodation from the central bus stop. Highly recommended!
Our guide, Levi, took us to the normal places as well as unique places including the Ilana Goor Museum in Old Jaffa. He was very knowledgeable and pleasant and we would definitely recommend him to other travelers.
I was picked up sharp on time, all was organised beautifully and out driver / tour guide was very kind and informative.
Excellent guide and excellent day full of historical landmarks with unique stories. Thank you
Was a very nice trip, well organized and well explained. A 10 for the guide
