We'll have been in the Galilee since Tuesday, with not much time for sightseeing. Before heading to Jerusalem for 5-6 nights then to Tel Aviv for 4-5 nights, we might be able to join a group for the following tour, on Shabbat. The question is, are we better off doing maybe just part of the following on our own, or does the tour seem like a good opportunity to see a lot? It will be our only day of an organized tour; the rest of the stay will be at our leisure.
Head to Zfat, city of Mystical Judaism (Kabbalah). Explore the narrow alleyways lined with ancient synagogues and artists’ galleries. Pause in the quaint town of Rosh Pina to learn about the pioneers who settled the land.
Drive to Agmon Ha’Hula, a unique wetland on the migratory path of birds between Europe and Africa. Rent a bicycle or golf cart and explore the area.
Ascend the Golan Heights and peer deep into Syria from atop Mt. Bental.
Watch the Oz 77 presentation about a crucial battle during the Yom Kippur War
Then enjoy nature walks at the Banias and Tel Dan, sources of the Jordan River
