Published on October 12, 2017 by IBMT

For a destination that’s overflowing with culture, history, and vibrant people, Colombia is the place to visit. In fact, Columbia has some of the most amazing sights and attractions – from the beautiful, natural landscapes, to the finest beaches on earth, to the incredible Latin cuisine.

As an experienced tour operator in Colombia, IBMT Tours has a wide selection of tour packages to suit even the most selective of travellers. IBMT offers Jewish heritage tours that provide excellent value - with hotels, transportation, and touring alltour operator Columbia included - a complete high quality package.

Bogota and Monserrate

Bogota is unique because of its very high elevation, and the mountain of Monserrate overlooks the entire city. Here, the 17th century church is a mecca for pilgrims worldwide. Experiencing Bogota with a tour operator in Colombia is one of the better ways to tour the city, walk the streets, and enjoy the architecture. And with plenty of free time, the local markets area must.

Hacienda San Alberto

With IBMT, you experience the real world of coffee, in the mountains of Hacienda San Alberto. The sheer beauty of the plantations is striking – this is where coffee beans are extracted, and where visitors can learn first hand about the processing and production of the best coffee in the world. Travelling with a tour operator in Colombia means having everything pre-planned.

Barefoot Park in Medellín

Designed by the architect Felipe Uribe de Bedout, Barefoot Park includes gardens, a sand area, and water fountains – a playful natural environment for young and old. The park is located in the administrative area of the city, along with adjacent theatres and museums (and an interactive science museum). Here again, there are benefits to travelling with a tour operator in Colombia.

Joaquín Antonio Uribe Garden

Joaquin Antonio Uribe Botanical Garden comprises 35 acres of parkland in the center of Medellín. Abounding with trees, plants and flowers, the highlight is a lake that’s concealed within all the woodland. Strolling through the exotic flora and fauna, IBMT tour guides lead the way through the garden, lake and herbarium. It’s all possible with an experienced tour operator in Colombia.

Cartagena de Indias

Cartagena is truly the gem of the Caribbean coast – the city is superbly preserved within the centuries old stonewalls. The “old town” in Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with exquisite cobbled alleyways, overlooking balconies, and colossal churches. With IBMT, packaged tours offer activities for all, fabulous options for local foods, and magnificent historical sights.

The IBMT Bar Mitzvah tour was fantastic! It was the perfect blend of family time and peer group time, of sites with religious/historic significance and just plain fun. The guide was personable and informative, and even the bus driver was great. All the details were attended to and you didn’t have to concern yourself with or worry about a thing. It was a true vacation. We would highly recommend it to anyone. If you are going to Eilat, Petra is a must!

We went on a church group to the Holyland with IBMT Tours and had a great trip, everything was planned for us perfectly. There was over 123 people in four different bus groups and things went smoothly, I thought it was going to be hectic with that many people in the group but IBMT did a wonderful job and made sure the buses did not go convoy, every bus had its own time table and itinerary for the day, our guide Dani was so knowledgeable and loving. We love you IBMT and we will recommend you guys. Thanks for everything you have done for us.

We just returned from Israel on an IBMT Bar Mitzvah Tour for our three grandsons.  We had enough family members to warrant our own bus.  After checking out many tour companies we went with IBMT and all of us were glad we did.  The hotels were fabulous and the rooms allotted even more so.  From the INBAL in Jerusalem, KFAR BLUM in the Galilee, the SHERATON in Tel Aviv, to the ROYAL BEACH in Eilat we couldn’t have asked for more.  Our meals were equally excellent.  Beginning with a welcome reception at the INBAL to the closing dinner at the CANAAN restaurant in Tel Aviv one and all loved them.

It was a busy tour made even more so by my husband who was determined the grandchildren see “everything”.  Fortunately for us, we had the best guide when Ornan (from IBMT) gave us GADI.  All of the groups loved their guides but Gadi was  special.  He was able to reach the kids (ages 7-13) as well as the adults.  His knowledge, willingness to adjust the schedule, and good nature gave him a soft spot in all of our hearts.  He filled in at Yad Vashem when the guide droned on a bit too much for some of us.  He searched out a cemetery where a father, grandfather and great grandfather was buried and proceeded to enlighten us on the rituals and customs of a military cemetery.  He adjusted our times to include those little extras.  When weather precluded the camels, we visited Qumran.  After the Bar Mitzvahs, some wanted to walk down Masada - again, no problem. 

We loved everything.  Friday night dinner with an Israeli family (coincidentally the husband was from Toronto), meeting the soldiers on the kibbutz, the Druze lunch, sampling different foods at the shuk, the bullet factory and on and on.  Although the weather was precarious in December, it didn’t stop us and we were able to celebrate Chanukah in Israel...menorahs  everywhere, sufganiyot of every kind, celebrations in the street galore.

Would we recommend this tour...without a moments hesitation.  We had a family trip of a lifetime.  Thank you also to our bus driver Louie, whom we all loved and who got us around safely. 

“Gadi” - what else can we say ... g double o - d, j-o-b. Good job, good job.  V-e-r-y-n-i-c-e, very nice, very nice.💕



I cannot imagine a better, more organized, more perfect experience! IBMT went above and beyond all expectations!

Loved the trip! The itinerary was fantastic and really kept us moving. We were able to see and do so much. Best of all was our tour guide Natalie. She was very kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable on every aspect of Israel.
