Istanbul is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, as it consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful places in the Middle East to visit.

The city is also listed among the top street food cities in the world as voted by Virtual Tourist, so be sure to gnosh on world-famous doner and more.

With a new airport being developed in Istanbul that will be the largest in the world by 2018, Turkey is host to a world of culture and influence. Turkey is rich and diverse in history, with the oldest known human settlement in the world found in the Catalhöyük region. Other popular tourist destinations in Turkey include Antalya, a serene and gorgeous resort city offering luxurious beaches, fascinating Roman ruins, and the famous Kaleici district. As well, the ancient once-Greek city of Ephesus features the Library of Celsus and other ancient ruins along roads lined with epic marble columns. Journey further to Cappadocia, where one can explore “fairy chimneys”, as well as exhilarating cave experiences and the famous Uchisar Castl.

Some can’t-miss attractions in Turkey include the Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya Museum); with awe-inspiring architecture and artistry recalling the might and power of old Constantinople. This museum of Ottoman conquests in Istanbul is a must for history lovers. As well, the Topkapi Palace gives travelers a taste of the sultan’s life as you explore the decadent and exuberant interiors rife with jewels.

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 ...
