Welcome Home!

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!

December 2019 Family Tour

Our families have just returned from the completely sold out December tour and what an amazing time was had by all! This year’s departure was even more special as our group was touring during Hannukah. 

Starting out in Jerusalem the group spent three fabulous nights at the world famous Waldorf Astoria and toured of all the important sites in this magical city including the Old City, Western Wall, Tower of David, the Davidson Center, Mt. Herzl and much, much more. No tour of Jerusalem is complete without a visit to Yad Vashem, Israel’s national memorial the victims of the Holocaust where everyone participated in a meaningful and emotional private memorial service

From Jerusalem it was on to Northern Israel. So much to see along the way –  The aqueducts at Caesaria, the Bahai Gardens in Haifa, and an amazing cable car ride down to the  magnificent grottoes at Rosh Hanikra. While in the North the group visited the holy city of Safed with its artists’ colony (great shopping!), the Golan Heights and a fun filled stop at the Gan Garoo Australian Park to see the kangaroos and koalas.

Then from the North to the Dead Sea for the Bat/Bat Mitzvah ceremony.  But before the big event, the group had a fantastic desert jeep ride, a visit with the Bedouins and an “unsinkable” swim in the Dead Sea. Up early for the momentous day, our families ascended Masada by cable car. On this historic spot that symbolizes the spirit of the Jewish people, the celebrants became Bat/Bat Mitzvah. A beautiful service as the sun rose over the desert landscape.

No rest for the weary as the families made their way to vibrant Tel Aviv – the “Capital of Cool”.  While there the group visited the Ayalon Institute (Bullet Factory), a fantastic hands-on archeological dig at Beit Guvrin and the Palmach Museum.

Of course, an Israel Discovery Family Bar/Bat Mitzvah tour would not be complete without our gala banquet- a festive celebration with live music, dancing and candle lighting ceremony. What a fantastic way to commemorate an important milestone.

So many of the families called us the minute they returned to thank us for this once in a lifetime experience. It means so much to us as everyone at Israel Discovery Tours is committed to providing the finest Israel-Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience.
