Our tour with Touring Israel and Yogev as our guide was amazing. We spent 5 days touring with Yogev all over Israel, and he made our whole experience special and enriching. We are the type of people who like to plan every single moment of the trip, so we started out emailing with Jonathan to nail down our itinerary. Jonathan was very responsive, and really listened to the things we wanted to see and the highlights we wanted to hit, while also interjecting the things that would make our trip special.

We felt like we have our trip really well planned out. Then we arrived in Israel, and we learned, maybe it's best to just go with the flow a little bit. The first day we were supposed to go up north to Caesarea and Akko, but heavy rains all day were predicted, so Yogev our guide who we had never met at that point suggested we flip days and instead drive south and do our dead sea day the first day. That was supposed to eb the last day of the trip. Trusting they knew Israel and the climate better than we did, we flipped our whole trip around and trusted them, and from there our whole trip plan went out the window, and became the best trip ever. Yogev is not just a guide, but he is also a tour planner, and he makes the best decisions. Heading to Masada and the Dead Sea that day was perfect, because it not only rained that day up north, they got a rare March snow.

From there, we went all over Israel, hitting all the highlights- starting with Galilee area and all the biblical churches and holy places, enriched by Yogev quoting bible passages and interesting historical tidbits and taking us to fantastic local lunch places in Nazareth. Then on to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Jerusalem was where Yogev really showed his expertise of the city, we saw all the major places in just a few days, and Yogev knew everyone and everywhere. From a hole-in the wall photography studio that has been taking pictures of Jerusalem since the 20’s to a little out of the way church still being restored connected to the roofline of the Holy Sepulcher. His knowledge impressed us at every turn and enriched our whole experience.

Touring Israel even arranged for us to have a local Palestinian guide in Bethlehem, who was also amazing, taking us to Shepherd’s field and the birthplace of Jesus.

If you are considering a tour guide experience to enrich your trip to Israel, look no further than Touring Israel and Yogev. The whole staff at Touring Israel was attentive and responsive to the few minor post-covid hiccups with our trip, and we felt very well cared for by everyone on staff. Our trip would not have been the same experience and hiring them to be our guides to Israel was the best decisions I made about our trip.

Just outstanding, from start to finish. Our itinerary designed for a 2-week private tour through Israel and Petra/ Wadi Rum was perfectly tailored to our requests and with Joe’s excellent advice. We felt listened to, attended to, and everything was seamless. Our Israeli guide Noam was FANTASTIC: extremely knowledgeable, friendly, flexible and responsive, providing an intellectually stimulating and fun adventure for a family of 4 adults. The handoff to the Jordanian touring partner was similarly seamless, and the tour guide Jehad could not have been better. Wow, the Palmera luxury camp in Wadi Rum was out of this world! Even the Israeli dinner reservations made for us were perfect, delicious, and exactly as I had requested. The only challenge we faced, which was minor, was the pre-trip navigation of email exchanges, given the time differences between Israel and California, resulting in longer response lag times than is ideal, but overall this was a blip that really didn’t matter in the long run. We would recommend Touring Israel to anyone seeking a rich and luxurious trip, filled with mind-stretching conversations about history, politics, religion, and current events. Thanks Joe!

Touring Israel,

I’ve heard friends say when they returned from a vacation that they had a “trip of a lifetime”
Now we can honestly say the same thing! Emphatically!!!
There were four of us traveling for almost three weeks.
Our main tour guides name was Bena.I don’t know the words to explain how much he meant to all of us, he was like part of the family. He was not only extremely knowledgeable (he is an archeologist), polite and took us where and when we wanted to go on our tour. He had an itinerary, but we modified it slightly.
Bena has a GREAT sense of humor. If you are planning a trip to Israel, We would strongly recommend him as your guide. It is not easy to reserve him, but if you get him, I promise you will not be disappointed.
Another shout out to Monika. She was very valuable in helping us plan our itinerary and couldn’t be any nicer and responds in a very timely manner.
Overall, we couldn’t have asked for a nicer tour.

Grade A++++++

We went a couple months ago, and my only regret is waiting so long to post this review (I usually do not post reviews).

Thank you again for fulfilling a lifetime dream,

Deb, Ron, Marilyn and Jim

We used Touring Israel for a multi-generational trip to Israel and it we fabulous! We wanted a very upscale trip that would include all the major sites, including meaningful Christian sites, so it the trip would feel inclusive to all family members. Touring Israel gave us that and so much more. They got this trip together with only four weeks notice and from the moment we landed in Israel, everything was taken care of and ran smoothly. In addition to the fitting in all the major attraction, Touring Israel added experiences that make the trip so fun and memorable including an exquisite catered lunch at the base of Masada, and a cooking tour and private dinner in Jersualem's Machane Yehuda market. Joe Yudin was our amazing guide, but if Joe was not available I would absolutely feel comfortable having Joe personally recommend one of his other guides for the trip. Joe Yudin and his team are professionals!

Working with touring israel was great from beginning to end. I worked with Rivka and she was responsive and helped plan the perfect itinerary for my family. From the moment I arrived in Israel a representative from the company met us at the airport and helped us navigate thru the airport. Our tour guide Yogev was absolutely amazing! He knew the answer to every question we asked, he knew special places to show us and was able to get us right inside to anywhere we went. Touring Israel made my family trip exceed all expectations

I have only one word for this trip of a lifetime, epic!

I cannot thank the team at Touring Israel enough for making this trip such an amazing experience. We are already thinking about a return trip in the near future!

The memories and experiences we had while in Israel were incredible. We not only had fantastic experiences, but also feel that we have become closer to the land, the people, our heritage and our family.

It was clear that very careful planning went into all of the events from arrival, to the bat mitzvah, all experiences and even at departure. Everyone was always on time.

I think at the center of this unforgettable experience was our guide, Chen. Touring Israel matched us with the perfect guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and fun! She brought a warm, positive energy to this experience that made it that much more special. I was impressed that she made all aspects of the trip interesting not only to the older adults, but also to my girls. They had a blast! My younger daughter is already planning her bat mitzvah in Israel.

On behalf of the Vogel family, I wanted to thank Touring Israel for an amazing trip. I can say with much confidence that the whole family feels the same way. Traveling always has its challenges and traveling with children and during these days, with the unexpected even more likely to occur, we must thank the staff at Touring Israel, and particularly Jonathan Rose and Gil Haran for making this a perfect trip. From the planning of our itinerary to its daily execution, which Gil, our guide, so skillfully adjusted as needed, we had so many meaningful experiences which touched all of us deeply. We all felt that the trip went far beyond what we expected and that we have such deep appreciation for the many experiences that met the needs of those of us who have been to Israel multiple times and those who were experiencing Israel for the first time. We all felt that we learned so much and deeply appreciated conversations with Gil. Our experiences exposed all of us to new ideas and impacted our understanding of ourselves and the country. Many thanks to Gil for his kindness, knowledge, and flexibility. and taking such good care of us during our travels.

My wife and I took our three children (ages 13, 10 & 8) and mother-in-law to Israel as a celebratory trip after my 13 year old's Bar Mitzvah in the states. We connected with Yogev Ozeri at Touring Israel. They curated a 8 day trip in Israel and it exceeded my expectations. The sites we visited and the activities we participated in was a mix of historical Israel and modern day. The logistically coordination of the trip was so smooth. Yogev (Yogi) captured the imagination of my children as he was able to share the history of Israel over 8 days with the kids being engaged the entire time. It was the kids, first trip to Israel and although I have been to Israel several times, Yogi showed us things and took us places I never knew existed. He was kind, considerate and found ways to make everything relatable. I wish I could give more than 5 stars.

Our family (6 adults & 3 children) visited Israel for the Bar Mitzvah of our grandson. Our friends highly recommended this group which exceeded our already high expectations.
We were very pleased with the people we worked with including our guide Alon and our driver Alex. Our guide related well to the adults and children and was very knowledgeable and our grandkids have already corresponded with him.The people at Touring Israel were accessible, responsive and customized the tour to our needs. The speakers recommended by the company were also excellent. Our grandkids were intrigued by the Mosad Agent Glen Cohen and fascinated by his stories. We had a great trip and one that we will always remember. As my granddaughter exclaimed, ""it was awesome."

We loved so many aspects of our trip, but one of the biggest highlights was our tour guide, Yogev (Yogi) Ozeri. He was knowledgeable, as well as passionate about how he imparted information and truly brought the history to life. He took us to Caesarea National Park and we had the unique experience of enjoying a home-cooked lunch with a local Druze woman in her home. We did much more in our five days with Yogi. It was all worthwhile, fun, informative, and an unforgettable experience!
