Taking a private tour of Israel is one of the best ways to see the country. It is highly recommended for certain travelers – businessmen, families, groups, those without a lot of time, those who like to travel in style, those who don’t want to be part of the crowd and travelers who want to pick and choose the sites they visit on their tour.
Other travelers who may prefer a private tour rather than a group tour are orthodox Jews, travelers on a short one day stop-over and those with a specific interest in some aspect of Israel.
An Israel private tour can be tailor-made to meet your needs and your interests. You can discuss your preferences with the tour guide ahead of time and also let him know the amount of time you would like to spend at each place.
