Discover Your Own Identity on a Jewish Heritage Tour

Published on March 08, 2020 by IBMT

One of the more prevalent trends in the travel world is consumers preference towards experiences versus amenities. Soul searching travellers who desire to connect to their roots will look for experiences that cater to the spiritual side as well as the 5 senses. Those that practice the Jewish faith can easily immerse themselves in the deep and cultured Judaic experience by taking part in a guided heritage tour of Israel.

Once in a lifetime experiences in The Holy Land

Israel is home to some of the most important religious and historical sites in the world and travellers to this one country can fully experience these sites with a guided Jewish heritage tour. IBMT tour guides will deliver a truly memorable trip with experiences such as:

  • A visit to the 3000 year old neighbourhood of Old Jaffa
  • An exclusive Jeep tour of the Golan Heights
  • Tours of religious and historical areas of The Old City in Jerusalem
  • Stops at The Knesset and the Israel Museum, home to the Dead Sea Scrolls
  • An emotional experience at Yad Vashem
  • A cable car to the top of  Masada and a swim in the unique waters of The Dead Sea

A Jewish Heritage Tour is a bucket list experience

Those seeking enlightenment within the Jewish faith must have a visit to Israel on their bucket list. The country is home to both highly important religious and political sites that play an important role in Judaic history and have come to define what the country of Israel has become to this day. A Jewish heritage tour by the experienced professionals at IBMT provides the most complete Judaic experience by combining the beauty of the Jewish religion with the modern history of Israel herself. Travellers who are eager to connect or reconnect with their Jewish identity should seriously consider a visit to The Holy Land and fully embrace all the country has to offer.

Connect with your spiritual side

Israel is home to the Jewish faith and is the policial home for Jews all over the world. Travellers looking for more of a spiritual or religious experience will find no shortage of areas to see and visit in The Holy Land.

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.
