Non-stop overnight flights direct to Tel Aviv

Arriving in Tel Aviv, IBMT staff will provide personalized service and attention from day one. Right from the airport, a comfortable tour bus provides transport to Tel Aviv for a restful night. The following day, it’s a leisure day to explore Tel Aviv with its extensive beaches, fabulous restaurants, and tourist sights throughout.

Driving north to Caesarea, Haifa, and Acre

In Caesarea, touring includes the ancient Crusader excavations, the Roman aqueduct, and the amphitheatre. In Haifa, there’s time to explore the history of illegal immigration during the British mandate period. Then to Acre, where the Old City is recognized as a World Heritage Site. Finally, overnight at a Kibbutz guesthouse.

Down south to Masada and the Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth, and with super-high salt concentration, it’s super-easy to float. The remnants of Masada are the next amazing experience - ascending by cable car and exploring the fortress, the synagogue, and the bathhouses. The next stop is at a local hotel spa for a "swim" in the mineral-rich Dead Sea.

Safed - one of the most spiritual of cities

As one of the four holy cities in Israel, Safed is the centre of Kabbalah, with palpable spiritualism and a picturesque artist quarter. This is followed with a tour of the Golan Heights and a visit to Tel-Hai, commemorating the 1920 battle of Josef Trumpeldor. The day is completed with a restful overnight at a kibbutz guesthouse.

Jerusalem - with many centuries of history

For Jews, Christians, and Muslims, Jerusalem is of the deepest significance. Touring with IBMT encompasses all of Jerusalem - the Old City; the Wailing Wall; the Al-Aqsa Mosque; and the Dome of the Rock. Jerusalem offers travellers a cross-section of religion, history, and culture – for many, this is truly their highlight in Israel.


Still traveling but wanted to thank you for planning a marvelous trip.  It is truly a trip of a lifetime.

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.
