Benefits of Private Tours 

Tour Built Around You

This is your trip – why stress out over rigid pre-planned itineraries that you have to accommodate? Instead, you get to explore Israel exactly the way you want to. The tour itinerary is entirely built around you, including places to visit and the types of activities you would most enjoy. We do offer suggested itineraries to get you started if you don’t already have something in mind, but what you do is up to you.

Explore at Your Own Pace

Picture this: you are loving a certain spot and could spend forever there…and then, not five minutes later, your tour group is already moving on! 

With a private tour, you get to really explore at your own pace. No need to worry about getting back to the bus at a certain time – the tour guide is there just for you.

Privacy and Exclusivity 

On regular group tours, you don’t get much of a choice who accompanies you on your trip. But with private Israel tours, you enjoy more privacy and comfort, knowing exactly who is joining you. Private tours are especially ideal for special occasions like wedding anniversaries, birthdays, or bar/bat mitzvahs. But they are also just great when traveling with friends and family on vacation! 

Your Own Personal Source of Local Knowledge

Got a question? You can ask at any time. Instead of competing for attention with all the other tourists, you get a private tour guide who will answer all your questions on the spot. Throughout your exploration of Israel, you will be accompanied by an experienced and licensed tour guide who gives you access to local knowledge and culture.

Our Guided Tour Options 

Destinations such as Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Masada are just the beginning of what there is to do in Israel. Add the Galilee and the Dead Sea to the mix, and you won’t know where to look first! With limited time and so much to see, how do you prioritize what matters most to you? 

It can be challenging to get to all the must-see sights when you’re a new visitor. Our private Israel tours help you explore the way you want to while gaining a deep understanding of what you are seeing. Explore a combination of the sights you want to see without worrying that you are missing out. You are sure to cover all the highlights. 

We offer wonderful options for guided private tours of Israel, from our custom private tours to our 14-day Bat/Mitzvah Holy Israel Journey. And those are just a few of the many tour options we provide!

Guided Israel tours enhance your trip in so many ways:

  1. They know a lot: Tour guides in Israel are required to have a license from the Ministry of Tourism and must renew it every two years. This means that you are sure to learn from a tour guide who is informed and knowledgeable. There are countless details and historical facts you will miss without the experience of a tour.


  2. They take care of all the planning: Tour guides plan all the logistics and details of a trip you might not have even thought about. They take care of all the hassle, from checking operating hours and booking tickets to handling any problems that might arise.


  3. They know the best routes: There is a lot to see and only so much time. Tour guides will plan the trip in the way that makes the most logical sense. Instead of taking circular routes to see all the sites you want to see (and then being disappointed when you miss something), tour guides make sure you see all the places that matter most to you.
