Wander around some of Europe’s most sophisticated and effervescent capital cities with IBMT Tours. The Balkans is a unique and picturesque region where its beauty is not bound to the natural features of the countries that inhabit it but also relating to the rich culture that lies at its very core. Inland, urban landscapes of active towns and cities, dusty streets and immaculate architecture are met with natural backdrops that contain large canyons and valleys, Rocky Mountains and, calm and peaceful rivers and lakes. Places located in closer proximity contain a matchlessly lavish presence intertwined with cities with ancient design and history.

It is somewhat unexplainable how a region can so seamlessly balance and combine the beauty of both the natural and cultural elements of varied countries. IBMT’s educated and experienced travel representatives ensure to highlight this unified mixture as we guide you on our holistic tours of the Balkans region.

Start your vacation off by exploring the charming streets of Croatian cities, discovering the nuances of its past Roman rule, legendary monuments and historic attractions including St. Catherine’s Church, the Government Palace in the city of Zagreb or the declared UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site Diocletian’s Palace in Split. Enjoy pure bliss as you take in the magnificent views at Plitvace Lake National Park as IBMT takes you around its gorgeous topography and character.

Find yourself in a place surrounded by tranquility and romance when you arrive in the island of Hvar. Fields of rosemary and lavender and olive orchards creates an overarching aroma and experience unlike any other as you walk through the inlands of this delightful island. Watching the sunset as you relax and eat in a traditional “konoba” will give you a taste of the local venetian spirit and will leave you yearning for more. IBMT will continually satisfy this desire with our walking tour of Venice. Journey around this historic Italian city celebrating the rich art, food and culture that is apparent everywhere you look. Bid farewell to this romantic city by closing the day with a famous gondola ride.

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 ...

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 ...

Bar Mitzvah Tour in Europe

Hi Ornan

We just returned from our trip this afternoon. We had a wonderful time and our trip was seamless! All three guides were great and drivers were professional as well.
Thanks for putting together the Siddur. It will be such a nice memento.

One quick question-is there a way to forward  an additional tip on to Budapest guide Agi Antal? Is it best to deal with her directly or can I send you a check to be given to ...
