Your tour begins at "The Rocks", part of Sydney's historic waterfront. Here, cobblestone streets and early convict history blend with modern markets, museums, art galleries and special events.

From there, you'll hear about stories of the Jews from the "First Fleet", the first 11 ships that departed England in 1787 to form the first penal colony in Australia, arriving after 250 days at sea.

A visit to the Jewish Museum of Sydney, with its intriguing and remarkable Star of David architectural motif, will be an informative, memorable and sobering experience. Permanent exhibits include The Holocaust and The Jewish Involvement in Australian Military History.

Upon arrival at the Central Synagogue, you will be impressed with its stunning and simplistic beauty. The largest synagogue in the Southern Hemisphere, it is home to a vibrant and thriving community.

There's a place in Sydney called "Our Big Kitchen". It is a commercial kitchen, available for non-profit and community organizations to use to prepare meals for their members and the needy. A local Rabbi will be on hand to regale you with stories about the kitchen and its mission.

It's time for a lunch break and Bondi Beach, a white sand beauty and one of the most famous beaches in the country, is a great place to stop. You're sure to find something to your liking among the many cafes and restaurants available here.

What better way to get a feel for the culture than by visiting local proprietors? We'll stop in at a Jewish butcher, baker and bookstore, where you'll be free to make some purchases.

We include a drive past the spectacular Sydney Opera House, one of the most recognizable buildings in the world as well as the beautiful Harbour Bridge, bringing cars, bicycles and people between downtown Sydney and the North Shore.

Shore Excursions

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),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
