Gallery of Trip
Jerusalem is the capital city of Israel, thriving and multi-cultural. Explore the modern history that has shaped the state to be the country that it is today. Listed below are some of the attractions and sites of modern Jerusalem, offered as different options for you to choose from and design the tour to your liking.

Activities:

  • Your guide will meet you at the Ashdod port

  • The Knesset - The Knesset, Israel's parliament, was named after “Haknesset Hagedolah,” the Great Assembly (of Rabbis) of the Second Temple period.

  • Supreme Court of Israel - Israel's legal system is a combination of Jewish, Ottoman, and British law adapted and molded to suit modern Israeli realities. Built by the Rothschild Foundation, the Supreme Court building, with its striking design, is a fitting home for the judicial branch of government which oversees Israel's democracy.

  • Mount Herzl - Go to Mt. Mount (Har) Herzl, the burial place of Israel's founders, the country's leaders, and military cemetery. Pay tribute to those whose vision helped build Israel and those who gave their lives to keep it safe.

  • Yad Vashem - Visit Yad Vashem, Israel’s national Holocaust museum. This presents a profoundly Jewish memorial to the Shoah (Holocaust). From its dramatic structure to its powerful exhibits, such as the labyrinthine Valley of the Communities and the underground Children’s Memorial, Yad Vashem is an unforgettable place of tribute and remembrance.

  • Chagall Windows - Gaze at the luminous colors and rich Jewish symbolism of the exquisite Chagall stained glass windows in the synagogue of the Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Kerem. The windows illustrate Jacob's blessings to his sons, the patriarchs of the 12 tribes.

  • Ein Kerem - Tucked into the hills of Jerusalem is the biblical Ein Kerem, and whose name means "the spring in the vineyard." In the Christian tradition, this is the place pf birth of John the Baptist. Step into another world while you visit this quaint neighborhood.

  • Machane Yehuda Market - Enjoy the hustle and bustle with all the rich fragrances, colors and sounds this iconic Jerusalem market offers. Let the tastings begin!

  • Attractions on the tour: (please choose four locations from this list) • The Knesset (Israel’s parliament) • The Supreme Court • Mount Herzl • Yad Vashem • Chagall stained glass windows • Ein Karem • Machane Yehuda

  • Return to ship at Ashdod Port

FAQ

What is the situation with regard to COVID-19 in Israel?

v
As COVID-19 subsides in Israel, rules for entering the country are rapidly changing. Currently, only Israeli citizens, first-degree relatives of Israeli citizens, and a limited number of tour groups are allowed into the country. The hope is that this will change as of July 1, and all those who have been vaccinated will be permitted to enter. As of now, in order to enter Israel, one must present a negative PCR test that was taken within 72 hours prior to your flight. Upon arrival in Israel, you must take another PCR test at the airport. In order to avoid the need to quarantine, if you have been vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 outside of Israel, you must take a serological test to determine that you have antibodies. Via Sabra can help arrange this test for you. Once the Ministry of Health receives the results of that test, you will be released from quarantine.  All of our tours are planned in accordance with the Ministry of Health guidelines. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter to get the latest updates on travel policies.

What's the weather like in Israel?

v
It is always best to check the weather forecast beforehand as the weather during Spring and Fall seasons can be unexpectedly warm or cold.

Spring (late March – May): Daytime temperatures are generally very pleasant - around 65-70°F, though it can still be hot in some areas (such as the Dead Sea and Eilat). There is a slight chance of rain, but it doesn't happen often. It can be cooler in the evenings in the North and Jerusalem - approximately 45°F.

Summer (late May - late September): Temperatures are usually in the high 80s-90s. At this time of year, humidity will be highest in Tel Aviv and Tiberias. Other areas such as Jerusalem are drier and cooler, particularly at night. The desert, Masada and Eilat are extremely hot, but dry. It will almost never rain in the summer in Israel!

Fall (late September – November): Same as Spring, but the rain can begin towards the end of the season.

Winter (December - early March): Winter can be mild and sunny, or severe and overcast. There's often heavy rain and, in January and February, even snow at times! Temperatures will be in the 50s-60s most places, but in the 40s in Jerusalem and the Galilee hills, and cold at night. Pack layers and be prepared for anything!

Weekly weather forecast

How far in advance should I start planning my trip?

v
We recommend you start planning your trip/tour to Israel at least 6-8 months in advance to ensure the best prices and availability. If you're planning a tour for a large group, 8 -12 months is best so families can plan around their kids' school schedules. Contact us and we'll talk about it.

How do I access the internet during my trip?

v
Most hotels in Israel have free Wi-Fi available for hotel guests and many restaurants offer complimentary Wi-Fi as well. The city of Tel Aviv offers a city wide free Wi-Fi network, providing 80 free "hotspots" across the city. Other than that - please check your roaming services and international plan before you using your cellular data abroad.
