Fall 2019

Autumn in Israel – the perfect time to explore and tour.  Our Fall 2019 Adults Only tours had a fabulous time touring, eating (of course!), swimming, shopping and experiencing all of Israel.  From all the feedback we received an amazing time was had by all our passengers. There really is nothing like our tour. Whether you choose a Deluxe or Value departure, we always use the finest hotels in either class, unsurpassed routing, touring and service. Our staff gives 100% to insure that you have the best Israel experience

“I’m a pretty tough critic and customer from my career in NYC and my family and friends are shocked that I would not change anything about the tour. What made the trip for me was the combination of the itinerary, accommodations and our guide”

Starting with 5 nights in Jerusalem our passengers get to experience the city in an in-depth way. The Old City, Western Wall, Kotel Tunnel Tour, Tree planting at the JNF forest, Chagall Windows, Tower of David are just a few of the highlights they visited. Of course, no tour of Jerusalem is complete without a visit to Yad Vashem, Israel’s national memorial to the victims of the Holocaust. All of our tours participate in a private memorial service.

“Our guide was our Teacher, our Rabbi, our Cantor, our General, our Teller of Jokes, our Philosopher, our Scholar – he was all that and so much more. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for an itinerary that left us literally breathless and exhausted, intellectually stimulated and challenged, emotionally spent from laughing, crying, singing and dancing, and most importantly, connected to Israel,”

Leaving Jerusalem, the group travelled south to Masada and the Dead Sea. One of the most important sites in Israel, Masada, symbolizes the spirit of the Jewish people. An overnight at our Dead Sea Resort allows us to fully enjoy this unique region. We eliminate the exhausting pre-dawn trip from Jerusalem to Masada and back again. 

From Masada they continued further south to Eilat. Along the way the group stopped at the Ramon Crater and had a special visit with the Bedouins to enjoy their hospitality and learn about their culture. After the thrill and emotion of Jerusalem and Masada, Eilat is the perfect time to relax and enjoy the beach or take an options day trip to Petra, Jordan.

“The itinerary was so complete. Friends of mine (including a travel agent) who have been to Israel many times said they had not seen many of the sites I saw. Upon reflection it felt like it painted a picture of ancient history to today.”

After short flight, the group discovered the amazing North of Israel. Caesaria, Haifa, Safed, a jeep tour in the Golan Heights and the lovely seaside town of Tiberias. Then it was time to dance and sing aboard our “fun boat” as we cruise across the Sea of Galilee to meet Kibbutzniks and learn about the history and lifestyle of these Israeli pioneers. 

Their two week Israel experience culminated with a stay in Israel’s modern city of Tel Aviv where there is never a dull moment in this thriving metropolis. The group toured the famous Ayalon Institute (Bullet Factory) and the incredible Palmach Museum. They all enjoyed Shabbat at leisure with plenty of time to shop, enjoy the hotel pool or take an unhurried stroll along the Mediterranean Sea. 

No Israel Discovery Tour would be complete without a fantastic Farewell Dinner where the group celebrated their new connections to friends and to Israel.

“From the minute we arrived to the final moments before we boarded our El Al flight, we felt so truly cared for! Each detail of our trip was arranged with such care and thoughtfulness.”

2015 Adults Only Tours

We returned from our trip two weeks ago and still have not stopped talking about how wonderful it was. It was the trip of a lifetime. Being a tour member of IDT and as guide always said, “being part of the IDT family” was much more than we ever expected. We never could have anticipated what we saw, how we were treated and the way everything just flowed. We never had to worry about our luggage, or accommodations and food – that was beyond fabulous at every stop. At every meal we said “this cannot be topped!” We were wrong, the next meal was even better. We are still talking about the dinner at the restaurant on the Sunday evening before we left for the airport!
