Cead Míle Fáilte, translated from Irish to English means a hundred thousand welcomes.

Since the early 20th century, Ireland has been divided into Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland subject to 6 and 26 counties respectively.

The IBMT Bar Mitzvah tour was fantastic! It was the perfect blend of family time and peer group time, of sites with religious/historic significance and just plain fun. The guide was personable and informative, and even the bus driver was great. All the details were attended to and you didn’t have to concern yourself with or worry about a thing. It was a true vacation. We would highly recommend it to anyone. If you are going to Eilat, Petra is a must!
I want to thank you for a most fabulous trip/experience/adventure ! We had a great time !! And so enjoyed and appreciated so many of the wonderful surprises that IBMT had for us ! The bar Mitzvah day was amazing and the party that night an absolute thrill !!!! What a memory ! The hotels were great! We saw/ learned and did so much in 2 weeks ! What a great time ! What great people on our trip, what a fascinating country .
We returned from our trip yesterday and are now recovering from jet lag.
We had a great time and both believe this was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. I expected to enjoy Israel, but not to the extent that I did. The trip was well-planned, full of activities and we greatly enjoyed the tour guide, Nadav.
Thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip. We have friends considering a Bar Mitzvah trip for their grandchildren and will recommend IBMT to them.
How to I begin to thank you for an awesome Bar Mitzvah Tour that literally has changed my soul. I love Israel and will seriously get behind doing whatever I can do to help our state. I am a proud American but my heart belongs to Israel. We had an experience that was like none other, we enjoyed our group immensely and Natalie is a golden jewel, never to be cast off as she held us all together and so knowledgeable about every aspect. She is quite the tour guide! And our driver great too.
"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 by IBMT's level of diligence in ensuring that every hotel and restaurant fully accommodated our son's food allergies. Our tour guide Natalie was the highlight of the trip -- she is warm, incredibly knowledgeable, and tailored the experience for everyone's needs. The other families on our tour were excellent, excellent people and we've made friendships that will last for many years to come."
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 person with so much knowledge, she made it very interesting for all of us to enjoy and we all became one big family.
Fun, Excitement & Connection, IBMT you are more then that.
Everyone took care of each other looking after the children, everyone pitched in
“Just like one Big Mishpucha”
I would like to thank you Ornan for a great tour that you have provided for me and my family in Israel.
We recently returned from our IBMT - Israel Bar - Bat Mitzvah Tour. We loved it.
Natalie did everything a guide should do and more. She is very knowledgeable, well spoken and fun. She interacted well with everyone....parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles and definitely the kids. All our accommodations were first class. The touring was well planned and comprehensive.
Thank you very much.
Bar Mitzvah Tour in Europe
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 her by her tour group? I am not sure how that works???
Thanks again for planning such a great trip!! We will highly recommend your services to others!
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.
One minor scheduling suggestion I had: we had a market tour for dinner Thursday night in Jerusalem, which came after an intense outdoor day. I would suggest trying to pair that experience with one of the easier days. Even the high energy kids were pretty beat by dinner time. For us North Americans, walking around in the sun is quite difficult; counting towards a challenging day.
The Jordan River experiences were a highlight for the young people, as was the chocolate factory, and donkey riding. It was nice having the free Saturday to choose your own sites in Jerusalem (I know this isn't really optional since its the weekend, but it fits in nicely).
So many of the individual attraction guides were really funny, which was another highlight. Amir, the donkey guy from Winnipeg, Manitoba is a stand-up comic at his job, and having Abraham from Australia hosting the Bar Mitzvah party was quite entertaining.
We went on our own to the new Laser Tag in Jerusalem, called Space Laser, on the Saturday night...opens around 9pm. Between the laser tag and the amazing virtual reality machines they had there, this was a really fun spot. The VR tech they had there was astounding.
