With IBMT, Jewish heritage tours to Israel will delight even the discriminating international traveller.

Non-stop overnight flights direct to Tel Aviv

Arriving in Tel Aviv, IBMT staff will provide personalized service and attention from day one. Right from the airport, a comfortable tour bus provides transport to Tel Aviv for a restful night. The following day, it’s a leisure day to explore Tel Aviv with its extensive beaches, fabulous restaurants, and tourist sights throughout.

Driving north to Caesarea, Haifa, and Acre

In Caesarea, touring includes the ancient Crusader excavations, the Roman aqueduct, and the amphitheatre. In Haifa, there’s time to explore the history of illegal immigration during the British mandate period. Then to Acre, where the Old City is recognized as a World Heritage Site. Finally, overnight at a Kibbutz guesthouse.

Down south to Masada and the Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth, and with super-high salt concentration, it’s super-easy to float. The remnants of Masada are the next amazing experience - ascending by cable car and exploring the fortress, the synagogue, and the bathhouses. The next stop is at a local hotel spa for a "swim" in the mineral-rich Dead Sea.

Safed - one of the most spiritual of cities

As one of the four holy cities in Israel, Safed is the centre of Kabbalah, with palpable spiritualism and a picturesque artist quarter. This is followed with a tour of the Golan Heights and a visit to Tel-Hai, commemorating the 1920 battle of Josef Trumpeldor. The day is completed with a restful overnight at a kibbutz guesthouse.

Jerusalem - with many centuries of history

For Jews, Christians, and Muslims, Jerusalem is of the deepest significance. Touring with IBMT encompasses all of Jerusalem - the Old City; the Wailing Wall; the Al-Aqsa Mosque; and the Dome of the Rock. Jerusalem offers travellers a cross-section of religion, history, and culture – for many, this is truly their 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 ...
