Description

Start your day at the Savidor Train Station in Tel Aviv and receive your travel itinerary packet from our IsraelRail representative. From here you will ride like the locals from Tel Aviv along the Mediterranean Sea to Haifa, the third-largest city in Israel, and the largest in the north.


Start your morning with a trip to the Haifa Educational Zoo. This zoo is an ideal place for families when visiting Haifa. Originally built in 1949 as an education center for a neighboring school by Pinchas Cohen. Due to renovations in 2002, the zoo now hosts more than 100 species of wildlife including reptiles, mammals, amphibians, birds, and plant life. Built on a beautiful nature reserve on Mount Carmel, with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, the zoo covers over 8 acres of land making it perfect for everyone, especially families with small children.


After all the fun at the zoo head over to join the 15:00 Bahá’í Gardens Walk-in Guided Tour, just a 10-minute walk.


The Panorama Tour descends through the Haifa Bahá’í Gardens from the crest of Mount Carmel to the level of the golden-domed Shrine of the Báb along paved paths and stairs. You will pass through both formal and informal parts of the gardens and enjoy magnificent views of the city, the Galilee Hills, and the Mediterranean Sea.


Your guide will tell you about the design and maintenance of the gardens, as well as their significance to Bahá’ís. You will learn about the history of this community, how they came to build their world center on Mount Carmel, and what activities are carried on in the buildings located in the gardens, including the shrine.
