Private Tour to the Shephelah for Seniors 


Tour to the Shephelah for Seniors citizens


Take a Private tour for Seniors to the Shphelah and Experience the lush and historically rich region. Nestled between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, the Shephelah is often called the "Biblical Tuscany" due to its picturesque landscapes, rolling hills, and significant biblical sites. This tour offers seniors a unique opportunity to explore Maresha, Beit Govrin, Burma Road, Wine tasting, and many more with minimal hassle, ensuring an enriching and memorable journey.

The Shephelah is a stunning area characterized by its low hills, pine forests, and cultivated fields. This region is soaked in biblical history, with stories of Samson, David, and the Ark of the Covenant intertwined with its landscape. The accessibility of these sites can be challenging, but my accessible tours in the Shephelah caters specifically to seniors, providing easy access to key locations with the comfort of a 4x4 SUV.

Senior-Friendly Tours to Biblical Beth-Shemesh

One of the highlights of the Shephelah is Biblical Beth-Shemesh, a city with a rich history dating back to Canaanite times. It later became an Israelite town where the Ark of the Covenant was briefly kept after being returned from Philistine captivity. Recent archaeological discoveries have shed light on this fascinating story, and my Private tour to the Shephelah for seniors ensures that you can easily reach these sites, avoiding the difficulties of rough terrain.

Exploring Ziklag

Another significant site is Ziklag, where David mourned the death of King Saul. Though difficult to access by regular car, my Senior Tailored tour brings you to this historic location. Here, you can reflect on the events that shaped the biblical narrative in the comfort of a senior-friendly tour.

The Battle of David and Goliath

No tour of the Shephelah for seniors would be complete without visiting the site of the legendary battle between David and Goliath. This iconic location offers a glimpse into the dramatic events that have been told for generations. My tour ensures you can explore this site without the strain of long walks or difficult terrain.

Accessible Private Tour of Lachish and Maresha

Lachish and Maresha are two other important biblical sites in the Shephelah. Lachish was a major city in ancient Judah and played a crucial role in the defense against the Assyrian empire. Maresha, on the other hand, is known for its impressive underground caves and labyrinths. My tour provides easy access to these sites, allowing seniors to explore these historical treasures comfortably.

Wine Tasting in the Shephelah

The Shephelah is also renowned for its wine, a tradition that dates back over 3,000 years. Even Samson was enticed by the region's wine. My tour for seniors includes a stop at a local winery where you can taste some of the best wines the Shephelah has to offer. This stop is a delightful addition to your journey, combining history with a culinary experience.


The Historic Burma Road

After a relaxing lunch, the tour continues to the historic Burma Road. This 10-kilometer road played a crucial role during the 1948 War of Independence, providing a hidden axis for dispatching critical supplies to the besieged city of Jerusalem. The Burma Road is not only historically significant but also offers stunning views of the Shephelah's natural beauty.

Art and Culture in the Shephelah

For those who appreciate art, a visit to the art studio of David Gerstein is a perfect way to end the day. Gerstein's colorful and dynamic works capture the essence of the region, providing a vibrant conclusion to your Senior-friendly tour of the Shfelah. This stop allows seniors to enjoy contemporary Israeli art in a comfortable and welcoming environment.
