    A Stroll Through Time

    Our guide for the walking tour of Caesarea, was fantastic. We loved every minute of the tour as we wandered through the ancient streets of the city. The Crusader city walls and the Roman amphitheater were two of the most striking landmarks we saw. The sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea from the promenade were breathtaking, and the sea breeze was refreshing. Our guide’s insight into the historical significance of each site was impressive, and we learned so much about the city's past.

    Good tour

    The tour showed the ruins at Caesarea and gave the history of the area. You see the remains of shops, houses, two palaces, and a Roman bathhouse. Anytime you take a tour of a foreign county you can run into issues with the guides accent. My guide was knowledgeable and easy to understand.
