Jewish Heritage Tours- Top 3 Places to Visit for Second Time Travellers For most Jews living in different parts of the world, visiting Israel on a Jewish heritage tour is a special opportunity that only comes around once in a lifetime. So if you do get the opportunity to visit the country for the second time then you should definitely consider yourself one of the lucky few. Israel is a large country with many locations of special interest to people on Jewish heritage tours. As such, it is almost impossible to cover all these locations in one tour. Even though most of the best Jewish Israel tours organized by top agencies like ITAS will usually try to cover as many of the best locations as possible, it is still safe to say that you will probably miss a lot on your first visit. On your second tour of Israel, you will want to focus more on the places that you never got to visit on your first tour. Of course, there are also places that you came across on your first Israel tour and which you would not mind visiting again but you might want to dedicate less time to these. However, since most tour packages are usually designed with the assumption that the people on the tour are visiting the country for the first time and do not know much about it, you might want to opt for a more customized tour. You can discuss with your travel agents and come up with an itinerary that will place more focus on new locations that you never visited on your first trip rather than locations that you have already been to before. The best agents should have some great suggestions for you but, in addition to their advice, you should also have some preferred destinations up your sleeve and here are three of the best locations to visit for people on second time Jewish vacations tours. The City of David Dating back to the pre-Babylonian times, this is an ancient archeological park and is believed to be the birthplace of Jerusalem. The name City of David comes from the fact that it is believed to be the place where King David from the Old Testament built his city. Some of the most interesting things here include the underground water system that was used during the times of Abraham and, if you wish, you will even get the chance to wade through the waters of the Gishon Spring. Get a chance to walk through the same streets as your forefathers did in the Bible and explore the ruins of the amazing homes in which they lived. The Western Wall Tunnels You probably got a chance to visit the Western Wall on your first tour but what if this time you don’t just see the wall but explore the challenges that King Herod had to overcome when he embarked on this huge project. You can learn about the methods of construction and see archeological findings by exploring the tunnels which expose 480 meters of the Western Wall. Qasr El Yahud For Jews, Qasr El Yahud, also known as Bethany Beyond the Jordan, is special because it is the spot where Joshua and the Israelites crossed the river Jordan when moving into Jericho. There is also consensus that it is where the prophesy was handed down from Elijah to Elisha before he ascended to Heaven About the Company ITAS is a leading Israel travel advisory service for over 45 years.
