As we depart Haifa Port, we will cross Haifa Bay and go into the northern side for a visit of the ancient city of Acco. Explore a city with an amazing history dating back to almost 4000 years ago. Acre played pivotal role during the crusaders period.

Descend into the underground headquarter of the Knights of St. John and experience the Medieval atmosphere. See the Crypt-made of paved stone floors and the stairway leading to a long underground passage believed to be an escape tunnel built by the Crusaders.

Return up surface and explore the Ottoman phase of Acco. You'll see the 18th century Turkish Bazaar, stop at Kahan El-Umdan, and the picturesque Pisan port. If time permits we may be able to incorporate a visit to the large mosque of El-Jazar.

Then drive to Rosh-Hanikra on the Mediterranean Sea near the Lebanese-Israel border. The most western and northern place in all of Israel. If you wish, you may enjoy a cable car ride to visit the grottos carved into the white choke stone. The view is beautiful.

Next we'll drive to visit the Talmudic city of Zippori. The city dates back to the era of the Maccabees in the second century B.C.E., when it was founded by Alexander Janneus of the Hasmonean dynasty. Learn all about the fascinating history of this area.

Visit the ruins, see the Roman Villa with beautiful mosaic floor, the theatre, the synagogue, water system, colonnaded street.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
