What to do in Israel – The Quick reference guide for the absolute “MUST sees” on your next visit.
Yes, there are literally hundreds of choices, if not more. I have lived in Israel for several years and have not done or seen it all. Not even close!
But reality check here; we only have a limited amount of time to spend so here is my “Short List”. Many of these places are not mainstream and you may not find them on the standard group tour itineraries. That’s the idea and why they are my true “Israel travel secrets” – I am only too happy to share them with you!
I have visited each and every one of these places with my family and these are my own pictures and personal stories. One strong recommendation…
Hire a personal tour guide for the family for the same price or less to take a group tour with 30-40 strangers. See my recommended Tour Guides for any one of my suggestions below for “What to do in Israel”.
