A unique tour covering amazing and exciting sites which are not that well known, yet they provide a very exciting experience, Beit Shearim - The city of Dead, a winery with social values and the most beautiful mosaics in the Holyland in Zippori. Rich history, exciting archeology, great wine, and a funky guide all combined in one tour.<br>I love guiding, I love the land of Israel and nothing makes me happier than to share this love with others. I present very rich and informative guidance while presenting the information in a very vivid manner.

Get there at 8 am before the groups get there. Read up on this before you arrive or bring a guide. Very interesting caves some with multiple rooms. Nice scenic trails.

Beit She’arim is a historic burial complex. Museum Cave and Coffins Cave - two closest to the visitor center on the lower path - are the most interesting ones, the rest are mostly just an addition to the ambiance (although one or two others can also be entered). Many impressive carvings on sarcophagi in the Coffins Cave. Brochure has all necessary information. I visited in under 40 minutes, but probably up to hour and a half is good. I was the first visitor on November Monday morning about an hour after the official opening time, but other people, including a couple of tourist buses, arrived soon after.

It is always very emotional to return to this historical location, so important to the rich cultural heritage, especially bringing children to witness up close the historical site

one of the smallest national historic treasures, a few burial caves of Jews from 2,000 years ago. Few are open to the public, mediocre maintenance and extremely uncomfortable trails in and around the caves. The picnic area is reasonably shaded. Not a place to visit as the focus of your weekend travels, but if you are in the vicinity, you consider to spend an hour at most.
