Israel Insiders: Perfect Singles Trip to Israel
Have you dreamed of touring Israel but put it off because you didn't want to travel alone?
Gil Travel has the solution for you! Our Israel Insiders Tour allows individuals to explore Israel with a group of like-minded singles.
In Israel, there are growing numbers of single individuals and fewer couples than in years past. Israelis use the term “seeking” to describe individuals who are looking to start a relationship. Because so many singles love to travel, we have designed a program specifically for them. On the Israel Insiders Tour, scheduled for November 8-17, 2014, participants between the ages of 45 to 65 will meet the leaders of Israel’s high tech companies and start-ups, and spend time with a local journalist to learn about Israel’s present-day issues, while exploring the country’s cultural and historical sites. It's a perfect combination of mixing business with pleasure!
What does this singles trip to Israel include?The first day in Jerusalem begins in the Old City, where visitors will see the Western Wall and the Western Wall Tunnels under the city’s foundations. The Jewish Quarter, Ir David, Hezekiah Tunnels and the Arab Market are all sights to enjoy in the Old City.
The second day of the trip starts with a breakfast meeting with a local journalist. Afterward, participants will visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial and Museum. The next stop is the Israel Museum, known to be one of the world’s top art and archaeology museums. The museum is full of art by masters like Rembrandt and other contemporary European, American and Israeli artists. However, its main attraction is the Shrine of the Book which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls. After an enriching day at museums, start the evening with a cocktail party at a location overlooking the Old City. This event gives tour participants a chance to mingle with business leaders (and each other!).On the third day, participants will depart for Masada by traveling along the shores of the Dead Sea. A cable car ride will begin a tour of the ancient fortress where the Zealots stood against the Romans in 73 AD. At lunchtime, participants have the opportunity to relax, eat and swim at a magnificent Dead Sea resort before traveling to a winery in the Negev Desert for a tasting. The final stop of the day is at the Makhtesh Ramon, the largest crater in the Negev and a unique geological site!
If active travel is your passion, then the fourth day of the tour is tailored for you! On this day, you are offered the opportunity to rappel in the Valley of the Crater; for yoga enthusiasts, today’s the day for a yoga class at Adama. Camel rides, a Bedouin dinner, and drumming is the perfect way to end a memorable day.
The fifth and sixth days focus on Tel Aviv. Visit the Carmel Market to experience local foods and mix with locals. You’ll also explore Nachalat Binyamin, where street musicians, handmade jewelry and artifacts are available. On Tuesdays and Fridays (the tour will be there on a Friday), the street hosts a lively crafts fair! A great location to shop for some interesting souvenirs. Spend time discovering the Old Port of Jaffa, a colorful hub of artists' quarters, studios and art
galleries. Or, relax at the marvelous Carlton Boutique Hotel which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea; with the wonderful rooftop restaurant and lounge and bar you can take in Tel Aviv in all its glory.
The sixth day focuses on military history, with a visit to the Ayalon Institute, a clandestine, underground ammunition factory built in 1945 by the Haganah. Next, you’ll see Latrun, where many military battles were fought and a memorial museum now stands, which houses a diverse collection of tanks. Lunch will take place in the Arab village of Abu Gosh before returning to Tel Aviv.
