One of the best ways to get in touch with your heritage is to visit the place where it all began. If you are of Jewish descent, then Israel is the ultimate destination you’ll want to visit at least once in your lifetime. While many of you living outside the country would love to visit it as many times as possible, the unfortunate truth is that very few will get to visit more than once. This means you’ll want to make the most out of your tour and enjoy the best experience possible. The key to achieving this lies in selecting the perfect tour company to take you there. You’ll want to be sure to choose a company that has the knowledge and expertise to do the job. You’ll want a tour company that specializes in Israel travel and tours and that has had many years of service in the travel industry. Besides using a seasoned veteran travel agency, you’ll want to check to make sure they have a good E&O insurance policy in the remote possibility something unexpected happens during your trip. Another thing you’ll want to consider is what previous clients have to say about the company. Always check online, usually you can find reviews on their website or social media pages. What their customers say will tell you a lot about the type of service they provide.
Most Israel tours offered by various travel agencies cover the most popular and most famous Jewish heritage destinations; you do not necessarily have to do a lot of research on your own to know which places to visit. So while that is a consideration in choosing one of many Jewish heritage tours, you’ll also want to take into account restful accommodations, mode of transportation throughout the country, and if you have any dietary restrictions, what the meals are like. Focus on things like your comfort and safety. These factors can make a huge difference in your enjoyment. While Israeli travel agencies utilize government licensed guides who are trained in history and cultural sites in the country, this doesn’t make all agencies equal. Yes, they can escort you to all the most notable sites in the land but selecting the tour company which has extensive relationships with vendors, guides and drivers makes a huge difference in the quality of your trip. Israel Travel Advisory Service (ITAS) has been in the Israel travel industry for over 40 years. They are the originator of Israel Bar/Bat Mitzvah tours. They hand pick their guides to provide the absolute best level of tour services. In choosing ITAS for your Jewish Heritage Tour you cannot go wrong – they provide a high standard of service in professionalism, comfort and enjoyment.
