Visiting Israel is a super emotional experience and there is a lot to see. However, we’ve found that sometimes less is more. Instead of trying to pack the itinerary with exhausting days on and off the bus, we enjoy a delightful pace together combining the perfect blend of tours, talks and workshops, and free time to explore on your own. We make sure to pack in as many sites as we can but we also enjoy intellectual engagement throughout the trip from leading scholars and dignitaries. Tours are amazing, food is delicious and each day we try to include an intellectual component ensuring a healthy balance of mind, body and soul.
