OverviewHide
Travel back through 5,000 years of history as you stroll amid the ancient streets of Acre. You'll follow a local guide on a narrated walking tour that reveals the sights and secrets of the world's only preserved Crusader City. Marvel at the great ramparts that enclose the city and the mighty fortifications within, including the Ahmed el Jazzar Citadel, erected in the 18th century. Venture beneath the great citadel to discover the Crusader City, a fabulous series of gothic vaulted halls that once housed Crusader armies. Enter the eerie Crusader Tunnel, discovered in 1994 by a local plumber, which once served as a secret escape route to the sea in case of attack. Wander through Ottoman-period markets and sample Middle Eastern delights as you unravel the mysteries found amid the stone facades and poetic streets of ancient Acre. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
