This place is pretty cool, but doesn’t need to make your top 10 for Things to Do in Israel. There are more beautiful places, more natural experiences and more historically rich sites. But these grottos are unique and worth a visit if you’re in the...More

Came with my Indian colleague and family. We have arrived at about noon. Due to summer vacation in Israel there was a long waiting line to go down by the cable car. The visit in the caves is magnificent with the noise of the waves,...More
