History Packed: Jewish Heritage Tour to Israel 

Published on November 23, 2017 by IBMT

With the travel experts at IBMT, a Jewish heritage tour to Israel leaves nothing to worry about. The sightseeing is pre-planned. Touring around the country is organized. Accommodations are pre-arranged. And most everything is included - the walking tours, the daily excursions, the evening activities, and many daily meals.

With IBMT, a Jewish heritage tour to Israel combines the history and modernity of Israel into a full travel experience. The idea is for travellers to enjoy the total experience - the landscape, the culture, the local food, and even some “hidden” travel spots. An organized Jewish heritage tour to Israel is a cost-effective way to travel.

Non-stop overnight flight to Tel Avivjewish heritage tour to isreal historic attractions

Arriving in Tel Aviv, the IBMT travel team is ready to help. With offices in Israel, IBMT is well positioned to provide personal service and hands-on attention. With every Jewish heritage tour to Israel, tour representatives meet travellers at the airport, and offer assistance from landing to baggage collection. A comfortable tour bus transfers everyone for a restful overnight in Tel Aviv. Starting off with a leisure day exploring Tel Aviv, travellers discover a vibrant city with expansive beaches, acclaimed restaurants, and cultural sights in every corner of the city.

Caesarea / Haifa / Acre / Rosh Hanikra

Driving north to Caesarea, this was once the Roman capital of the entire area. Touring includes the Crusader excavations, Roman aqueduct, and remains of the amphitheatre. In Haifa, the recent history of illegal immigrants during the British mandate is awakened. Continuing to Acre, the Old City is recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Then further north to Rosh Hanikra, descending by cable car down to the natural caverns to admire the spectacular rock formations. After a full day of touring, overnight is spent at a local Kibbutz guesthouse.

Qumran / Masada / Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is a hyper-saline body of water that is truly unique. This is the lowest point on earth – about 1,400 feet below sea level. The high salt concentration of the Dead Sea makes it easy to float in natural buoyancy. Staying in the area, Masada is the next amazing experience, ascending to the top by cable car and touring the mountain fortress, the original synagogue, and remaining bathhouses. Descending by cable car, the next stop is at one of the leading spa facilities in a nearby hotel for an enjoyable "swim" in the mineral/salt rich Dead Sea.

Safed - one of the holiest cities in Israel

Safed is considered one of four holy cities in Israel. As the centre of the Kabbalah movement, the local synagogues are a must visit, along with a stroll through the picturesque artists' quarter. Continuing with a Jeep tour along the Golan Heights, travellers witness the observation point that looks over the city of Kuneitra (Syrian territory). Next is Tel-Hai, where the famous “Roaring Lion” monument tells about the 1920 battle of Josef Trumpeldor. Overnight at a local kibbutz guesthouse includes a revealing look at the unique lifestyle of the kibbutz.

Jerusalem – many centuries of history

Celebrated by Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike, Jerusalem is of deep significance to all three faiths. With IBMT, a Jewish heritage tour to Israel encompasses the entirety of Jerusalem - the Old City; the Dome of the Rock; the Al-Aqsa Mosque; and the Wailing Wall. Also included in the daily touring are the Jerusalem Archaeological Park and the Western Wall Tunnels, both of which will captivate history and archaeological enthusiasts. Offering a complete cross-section of religion, history, culture, and tradition, Jerusalem is truly a highlight in Israel.

Testimonials

We recently returned from a IBMT Tour for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and we all agree that it was the best vacation that we have taken to date.  The tour was well organized and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable.  The events that they include in the tour include everything “must see” in Israel and activities that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.  The tour allows for activities for all ages and accommodates anyone who wants to do more or less than they have planned.  It is ...

To Ornan and  IBMT Tours staff,

We just got back from tour with IBMT for our Bat Mitzvah Tour in Israel.

We are so glad we have chosen the right company for our tour as I can’t express my words of how wonderful this tour company was, starting before we left, the personal service they showed here back home and later the service in Israel with our great tour guide Natalie who was so informative on every place we went and what we saw. It was so wonderful to listen to a ...

Dear Sheryl,

The visit to Israel was better than advertised. All of us had an awesome and inspiring vacation or as I call it, an education. Danny is one of the nicest and smartest men I have had the pleasure of meeting. He made the trip so special and I cannot imagine any other person showing us Israel but Danny.

Hotels were great but for Eilat, but no big deal. Food in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv restaurants were delicious. Sheila in Tel Aviv was extraordinary. Dinners at hotels just “so so”. Loved Mitzpe ...

Craig Savage,

Ornan,

Thank you very much for the IBMT Bat Mitzvah tour we just completed.  We had a fabulous time & there were lots of special little parts from the tour that contributed to that.  The different experiences for dinner were very special, and I liked the variety of different types of sites/attractions.  Our tour guide Natalie was excellent, and I heard good things from the other group about their guide Liat.

Thanks again

Sara / Ornan,

I had a fabulous time on this tour and highly recommend it to anyone interested.  We had an especially knowledgeable guide with us Doron Hoffman who as a history major added so much more information and had a great demeanor.  I was part of an international group and made some new friends.   

Regards,

Hi Ornan,

"Opting to celebrate our son's bar mitzvah this summer with IBMT is one of the best decisions we've ever made.  The itinerary took us to places around the country that I've never experienced on previous trips to Israel.  Experiencing our son's bar mitzvah atop Masada as opposed to a more rushed, crowded experience at the wall truly sets IBMT apart from other tour companies.  The professionalism of the IBMT staff both in North America and Israel was superb...everything was incredibly well organized and we were heartened ...
