To Our Passengers & Friends

We are deeply saddened by the recent events in and continue to work closely with our office, partners and friends in Israel. Israel is a resilient and strong nation, and we know that this will pass and travelers will once again fill the country. Right now, it is more important than ever to be a voice in the darkness and stand in solidarity. The best way we can support Israel and her people is to postpone and not cancel travel, and to make plans to go as soon as travel resumes. Together we can make a difference!

It’s Israel’s 75th!

After a very successful 2022, our first year back since the pandemic, Israel Discovery Tours is proud to start our 2023 Season. With Adults Only tours in the Spring & Fall and Family Bar/Bat Mitzvah tours in the Summer and Winter, we are looking forward to you joining us this year to celebrate Israel’s 75th birthday. There couldn’t be a better time to visit.

This year’s groups will be filled with those who have been waiting patiently (some for 3 years) to travel. They will experience all of Israel with the very best itineraries, guides, drivers, staff, and accommodations. Our first Adults Only tours are in Israel now having an amazing tour and their already sending back pictures:

From the biblical landscapes of the Judean Hills to the bustling streets of Tel Aviv, Israel is filled with historical, cultural, and religious significance – something for everyone!

In Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, where we have a chance to walk in the footsteps of history.  At the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth, we relax and rejuvenate ourselves in the salty waters while taking in the stunning natural scenery.  In Eilat, if a yacht cruise on the Red Sea isn’t exciting enough for you, a day trip to the amazing ancient city of Petra, Jordan is an optional excursion that will surely leave you awed.  The city of Tiberias on the shores of the Sea of Galilee is our base as we tour Northern Israel. The mystical city of Safed, the rolling hills and vineyards of the Golan Heights, a fun boat ride including an Israeli dancing and a fascinating visit to Kibbutz with home hospitality are just a few of the highlights you will treasure.  The tour concludes in Tel Aviv with its museums, shops, galleries, and the beautiful Mediterranean beaches. A Farewell Party puts the icing on the cake of the perfect Israel tour experience.

Whether you are traveling on our Adults Only Tour or our Family/Bar-Bat Mitzvah tours, Israel Discovery Tours is ready to “Welcome You Home”.  It’s Israel’s 75 Birthday!  Come celebrate with us!

Our Adults Only Tour Just Returned!

Israel Discovery Tours - Family and Adult Tours

We are so thrilled that our first tour to go to Israel since the beginning of the pandemic had such a marvelous experience. They were an amazing group of people! Here is just one of the notes we received:

We just returned from a truly comprehensive two-week tour of Israel with Israel Discovery Tours. Our tour was five stars all the way! From the staff helping us with the covid requirements to fly, to our so knowledgeable guide and driver, the high-end hotels and the wonderful itinerary, there wasn’t a stone left unturned. We were treated so special by everyone in Israel as they were so happy to have tourists back. Everyone we encountered couldn’t have been more gracious. We were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable all the accommodations were. Every detail to our tour went smoothly without one glitch. Israel is OPEN and ready for tourists and there’s no better tour company to go with than Israel Discover Tours. Suzanne  & Steven- Hallandale Beach, FL

Welcome Home!

Israel Discovery Tours - Family and Adult Tours

We’re thrilled to announce that as of Nov. 1, 2021, Israel is open for individual and group tourism.

Under the previous “permitted group” program we were able to send our Oct 25, 2021 Adults Only tour.

The group has been touring the whole country and as you can see from the pictures – having a fantastic time. They’ve been able to see and do everything on our comprehensive itinerary including Jerusalem, the Dead Sea/Masada, Eilat, The North and Tel Aviv.

We’re even hearing from our passengers during the tour:

I just wanted to take a moment and tell you how happy we are with this tour. We are having fun and a learning experience at the same time. Israel is such an amazing country and IDT is such a wonderful company. Thank you for going the extra yard for us. The first trip since COVID. Everybody we encountered is very careful about COVID. Wishing you continued success!   Harry & Joy, FL

For 30 years Israel Discovery Tours has been dedicated to providing our passengers exceptional service and an amazing Israel experience. We are committed to these principles and even more so during these challenging times. Our passenger’s comfort and safety remain our top priority

The last two years have been difficult, but Israel and Israel Discovery Tours are now ready to welcome you home!

Fall 2019

Israel Discovery Tours - Family and Adult Tours

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

Israel Discovery Tours - Family 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!
