Israel Unveiled insider journey

Israel Unveiled

For a country that is just over 8,000 square miles (approximately the size of New Jersey), Israel packs a cultural punch that is rivaled by few other destinations. The nation has enough diversity—from Bedouins and religious pilgrims to beach-goers who frolic in Tel Aviv—to be its own continent. On this journey, explore a modern perspective on Israel’s many contrasts and complexities, with an itinerary that travels deep into the country’s historic heart—Jerusalem—and its modern epicenter—Tel Aviv—through unforgettable meetings with thought-leaders in religion, technology, politics and fashion, as well as a balanced combination of iconic historical touring, cultural and culinary immersion and a few outdoor adventures.

The health and safety of our travelers is our number-one priority. We are committed to upholding the highest safety standards, while providing world-class hospitality and a seamless travel experience. We are in close contact with all of our partners to ensure that they are committed to the health and comfort of our travelers by practicing enhanced disinfecting procedures, respecting social distancing and testing guidelines, and remaining as low-contact as possible.
