Meet in the morning at the centrally located Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv lobby. Depart with your group by an air-conditioned shuttle, travelling just an hour north to Kibbutz Maagan Michael. Hop off the shuttle and meet your expert guide, a local kibbutz member, and begin your exploration of the lush seaside community.
Relax at the kibbutzs onsite bar and enjoy a taste of their homemade beer while learning about Maagan Michaels unique communal culture and history rooted in the Zionist dream. Discover how the kibbutz operates and maintains socialist principles, where people live and work on the same land and are paid equal allowances. Hear about the major role kibbutzim play in Israels manufacturing and agricultural sectors as well as government.
Stroll through Maagan Michaels tropical landscape and immerse yourself in the community. Pick up some tasty Israeli snacks at the community store before continuing your guided tour throughout the kibbutz, where youll see the homes, parks, and even an onsite rescue zoo members enjoy. Feel the strong sense of trust throughout the community, where hundreds of bikes are left unlocked on the sidewalks. Stop and take in the enormous fish pools, Maagan Michaels largest industry and source of income, before walking over to the scenic Mediterranean coast.
After fully touring and understanding the kibbutz, fill your plate with a variety delicious foods for a lunch with a view of the sea in the communal dining hall. After an incredible and enriching day tour and meal at Maagan Michael, unwind in the shuttle while you head you back to Tel Aviv!
