Luxury travel to Israel poses a profoundly ancient, vibrantly contemporary, and unimaginably diverse experience that beckons discerning travellers to explore its rich heritage.

Why travel to Israel

Are you considering tailor-made holidays to Israel? For travellers interested in religion, geopolitics and food, there can be no destination more thrilling than Israel. This captivating nation of contrasts is simultaneously ancient, modern and wonderfully diverse, with its complexity stemming from its important geographic location between Asia, Africa and Europe. To say it is steeped in history would be an understatement.
Our team of luxury travel experts have been busy exploring everywhere from Jerusalem, the Sea of Galilee and Nazareth to the Judean Desert, the Golan Heights and vibrant Tel Aviv.

We can design any number of extraordinary journeys, taking in Israel’s incredibly varied landscapes – ranging from mountainous and desert scenery to inland lakes and Mediterranean beaches – and unravelling the country’s past and present. We can ensure our clients enjoy the most exclusive experiences, taking in the best places to visit in Israel, with specialist guides and private access to both the highlights and the hidden gems.

Did you know?

The world’s first educational clowning initiative — incorporating therapeutic clowns into the school setting — started in Israel. Educational clowns add joy, improve self-identity and reduce stress among students and staff alike.

Did you know?

More formally known as Opuntia and referred to as prickly pear or a pear cactus, the sabra fruit is thorny on the outside but delicious and sweet on the inside. This reflects how Israelis and those who’ve befriended them see themselves. Hard, tough exteriors, but inside they’re kind and genuine people.

Where do I start? The trip was fantastic. Every guide was superb and all of your representatives did an outstanding job. I sing your praises to anyone who will listen. Hassan is the best guide I have ever had in my life. Forty-eight pharaohs' tombs have been found in the Valley of the Kings and there are four left to find. Hassan knows all their names, how many illegitimate children they had and each one's family tree. I’m serious. Thanks again for putting together such an extraordinary trip.

What our clients say
