Day 1: Arrival

Upon arrival at Ben Gurion International Airport, our representative will meet the group assist us on the way out through customs.

We will then step back in history as we tour Old Jaffa (Joppa) by the Mediterranean. From Joppa, we will transfer to our seaside hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 2 : Kibbutz Shefaiym

In the morning we will drive to Kibbutz Shefaiym, where we will meet with the Center for International Agricultural Development and Cooperation (CINADCO) staff, who will explain to us how Israelis promote their agricultural achievements across the globe. We will be given a demonstration of assorted Israeli-manufactured irrigation and fertigation equipment.

Following the demonstration, we will visit Hasharon Dairy, the dairy farm at Kibbutz Shefaiym. We will continue our tour to learn about greenhouses, shade houses, and high and low tunnels in central Israel.

In the afternoon, we will tour the ancient Roman town of Caesarea on the Mediterranean coast.

We will explore the ruins of the roman and the Crusader City. We will see the reconstructed Roman city and Theatre, the walls from the times of the Crusaders, and the prison where St. Paul was held in captivity before being sent to Rome.

This was also the place where the first gentile was converted to Christianity. As we leave the beautiful walls and moat, we will pass the remains of the Roman horse racing theater, the Hippodrome. We will top at the amazing remains of the Roman Aqueduct which has been beautifully preserved under the sand dunes for 2000 years.
