Finding a reputable Israel tour company in Toronto

putable – and they’ll know whom to avoid. Google reviews have something to offer, although talking directly with the tour operator is best. Experienced Israel tour operators can offer countless options when it comes to length of stay, focus of travel, and special needs.


Making sure the tour operator offers what you want

Getting what you want in an Israel tour is essential for having a satisfying trip. You may want everything organized - from flight, to accommodations, to touring. You may have a specific number of days in mind. Or you may be looking for a “family” trip with kids and elders in one big group. As an experienced Israel tour company in Toronto, IBMT Tours can offer a wide range of travel itineraries, with accommodation options, various city tours, and even different languages.

Touring Israel requires an experienced tour operator

IBMT Tours has offices in Israel, and is dedicated to personal service from the minute travellers arrive at the airport. In fact, Israel touring is a specialty - with Bar Mitzvah Tours, Jewish Heritage Tours, Holyland Tours, and even Classic Tours from Jerusalem to Eilat. Tours can also be arranged in a choice of English or Hebrew for those who prefer. For those who prefer all-inclusive, many tours include transfers, accommodations, meals, ground transportation, and expertly guided tours.

Getting great deals when travelling at “off season”

Like other world destinations, travelling to Israel can be at “peak season”, “mid-season” or “off-season” – each of which offers various price points.  Any season, IBMT Tours delivers good value.  

Peak season in Israel is March-April; June-August; and September-October. Summer is obviously the most popular time for visiting, as are the Jewish annual holidays (New Year and Passover).

Off-season in Israel is from December to February. It’s winter, temperatures are lower, and rain is not unusual. Except for Christmas and New Year, hotel prices tend to be the lowest of the year.

The so-called “sweet spot” for travel to Israel is either in May or November. During these months, the weather is temperate, and because of the demand, tour packages tend to be less expensive.

Choosing from a range of religious tour packages

IBMT Tours offers religious tour packages for travellers who are focused on exploring their roots or discovering the traditions and culture of an ancient land. Jewish, Christian, or Muslim, IBMT Tours has a package to suit – visiting historical landmarks; religious sites; and archaeology from a thousand years. Best of all, the all-inclusive Israel packages incorporate everything – from air travel, to ground transportation, to hotel accommodation, to meals and daily excursions.

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.
