    I went on the Classic Israel Tour. It was a fantastic experience. Our tour consisted of six people and our tour guide/driver. He was fantastic, and it was the trip of a lifetime. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this tour and go!

FAQs

    • Where can I find more detailed information about this tour?

      A trip note - which contains essential information about your trip will be given to you. Information such as the daily itinerary, where to meet on the first day, what time the trip starts, how to get to the joining point hotel, included activities, visa information, etc will be mentioned in there. Please contact us for this.

    • What is the group size of this tour?

      On average our group departures tend to have a minimum of around 10 to 20 passengers, though we only need 2 passengers to book for a departure to be guaranteed. The maximum capacity of this tour is 45.

    • Are wheel chairs available?

      On these group tours, passengers with mobility can't be accommodated as there will be issues as much of the terrain is uneven and the old city of Jerusalem for example is really not wheel chair friendly due to a lot of blocked paving, uneven surfaces and steps.

      We would be able to assist with a private tour where, yes, the same terrain would be experienced, but it will allow more flexibility with timing during sightseeing.

      On a private tour, we would request a manual wheelchair, but this service is unfortunately not guaranteed and we would need to advise whether this can be included once we offer the private tour quote.

    • What are the inclusions of this tour?

      Included:
      All accommodation in 4-star hotels as stated in the itinerary
