A must stop if you are in Israel to trace biblical history. You can take the cable car from the beach to get here or you can drive. Elijah's cave is located up on a hill with a great view of the city and sea.
According to Jewish tradition, this is he cave where Elijah took refuge and spoke to god. There's a lot of Jewish visiting the site for pilgrimage, but not Christians or Muslims. Probably because they have a different tradition about the location of the cave.
This spot played a role in three major faiths, and is an active, prayerful and sacred site. Make sure to have head covering for women visitors and cap for the men (there may be some loaners).
The experience was moving and impactful.

Hi Monica, we could not find a tour either and so we booked a private tour through Tour Israel to take us to Elijah's cave and other places, finishing in Zichron Yaacov which was amazing. Don't think you will find a tour.
