Israel: The Royal Tour is an unprecedented tour inside the country, an up-close-and-personal journey with a very special guide: the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. The latest in the Royal Tour series hosted by CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg, Israel: The Royal Tour provides unprecedented access inside a sacred land that is at once ancient and modern, with a long history of conflict.   The one-hour special provides an all-access pass into – and across – the entire country, led by the one man who knows it best.

Prime Minister Netanyahu takes Greenberg by helicopter, ship, dune buggy and bicycle throughout Israel – the birthplace of the world’s three great religions. Netanyahu and Greenberg explore the country’s iconic destinations: from climbing Masada to walking the streets in the Old City of Jerusalem; from the Mediterranean beaches of Tel Aviv to the holy sites below the Western Wall; from the Jordan Rover to the Temple Mount. Israel: The Royal Tour travels to some locations beyond the standard tourist checklist that hold special meaning to Netanyahu.  Greenberg and Netanyahu also sit down for a frank discussion of the situation in the region, and discuss Palestinian statehood and the prospects for a real peace.

Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, commented, “Many times during my years of public service I have wished there were an accessible way to share the many facets of Israel’s unique beauty: its distinct landscapes, its inspiring holy sites, its ancient history and modern cities, its cultural and culinary treasures, its thriving nightlife and above all, its diverse and dynamic people. And Peter proved that he was more than up to the task.”
