Tour description provided by Viator

The Israel Highlights tour shows the best of what Israel has to offer. Israel is a relatively small country, but for its size, it is abundant with things to see. Being a land bridge between Europe, Asia and Africa and the clashing place of great past civilizations, and being the cradle of three of the world’s main religions left mountains of history to explore. Not forgetting that Israel is the only place where you can actually walk and read about events which took place at biblical times, at the places they actually happened. There are also unique phenomena as the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth, Makhtesh Ramon which is only one of eight such examples in the whole world and others. Israel is rich with World Heritage Sites, diverse cultures and the people who immigrated to Israel thru-out history and they all add flavor to your ride here. This tour is designed for any rider who has road riding experience and some gravel riding experience.For 9 riders and 9 and passengers.
