Many of the tours depart on a daily basis, others 2-3 times per week, making them convenient to fit with your travel schedule. It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting relatives, are in the country for business or are spending your time mostly exploring on your own, you can still enjoy our Israel tour experience on one of these day trips or mini tours.
