Tourist Israel is one of the leading names in Israeli tourism. Founded in 2008 as a tourism website, Tourist Israel has grown into what is today one of Israel’s leading tourism operators with an operational fleet of 25 vehicles from private cars through to minibuses and larger coaches, three offices (in Tel Aviv, serving Jerusalem and the Center, in Haifa, serving the North, and in Eilat, serving the South), and a team of industry leading customer service and operations experts, backed up by our on the ground team of drivers, guides, and assistants. Our philosophy is to provide travel with passion and create experiences which will go beyond simply ticking the list of sites which must be seen.
Founded as a website aimed at providing a one-stop-shop for those visiting Israel, Tourist Israel is now used by over 1 million visitors to Israel every year, with many of these visitors taking advantage of our wide range of high quality tours and activities across the country and beyond. Tourist Israel and its tours have been referenced and mentioned across the web including in the New York Times, Bloomberg, CNN, Guardian, Mashable, USA Today, LA Times, BBC, and extensively in the Israeli and specialist tourism media. Examples of our press coverage can be seen here.
As a tour operator, we are constantly developing our range of hand-crafted tours and activities across Israel, from day tours to extreme activities, striving to offer something for everyone who visits Israel. We strive to provide visitors to Israel with the best possible experience and work with likeminded individuals throughout – those who are the best in the business and who share with us our belief that travel is about more than just about ticking a list of boxes, but is a time of discovery and experience. And a time of personal memories which will remain you for ever.
Our reputation as one of Israel’s leading tour operators is evidenced by the inclusion of many of our tours in leading global publications (our Petra tours have been noted in the NY Times, our Masada tours in Rough Guides, our Tel Aviv city tours in Fodors and the Guardian, and our desert adventures in Bloomberg Pursuits), and of course, our thousands of happy customers who have shared their feedback with us, and on review websites such as TripAdvisor, who have awarded us with the Certificate of Excellence.
As an information website, Tourist Israel proudly present independent tourists with an extensive vault of free information and content to make any Israel trip unforgettable. From events to off the beaten track information, and practical instructions for visiting Israel, our team works hard to ensure that we have you covered.
We are passionate about showing the cool Israel, a land full of unique, unforgettable people, places, sounds, smells, tastes and experiences – from the coolest city in the Mediterranean, Tel Aviv to the furthest reaches of the Negev Desert, or green Galilee, the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea, and the unique city of Jerusalem. And our services extend further, to Jordan with tours of Petra, Egypt, with tours of Cairo and Sinai, and into Bethlehem and other highlights of the West Bank.
In everything we do, we strive to offer the best, with local insights, unique angles, and individual memories. And our happy readers and customers from all corners are what keep inspiring us to work to offer more!
