History, Culture and Beauty
Travel to Israel and tour history… our history. Israel is one of the oldest travel destinations in the world and offers the most incredible historical attractions. Follow the paths that religious pilgrims of the Judaism, Christianity or Islam faith have been taking for centuries. Where else can you find a country that is not only beautiful but steeped in history and culture? You can visit revered sacred sites, lush beautiful nature preserves, pristine beaches, vast deserts and modern cities. Touring Israel will be the experience of a lifetime… one that you'll want to repeat again and again.
The Best Time to Visit
In a word, anytime is the best time! Israel's climate is wonderful with an annual average of 300 days of sunshine. Spring (March through May) and Fall (September through November) typically have the most mild weather and are the most popular travel seasons.
Israel Travel Connection provides all its travel packages with a deluxe, air-conditioned motor coach with a professional driver to take you from one destination to the next. If you decide to go off on your own, consider walking tours so that you can shop, eat and visit with the local people and learn more about the culture. Your tour director or Israel Travel Connection trip planner will help you determine what type of transportation is available in your destination locations and what best fits your needs. You'll find that getting around in Israel on one of Israel Travel Connection's trips is effortless and taken care of for you!
English is widely spoken in Israel. But, an added plus of planning your trip with Israel Travel Connection is that you will be accompanied by a local English-speaking Israeli tour guide so that you never need to worry if you run into a situation where English is not spoken.
For fun, try learning the following phrases and words to “try out” on your trip! No matter where you travel, locals truly enjoy tourists making the effort to learn a few words.
Hello, Goodbye, Peace: Shalom
Good morning: Boker tov

Excuse me, I'm sorry: Silcha
What's your name? (male/female): Eich karim lecha/lach?

And, don't worry if your pronunciation of the above is a bit “off”… that's half the charm of being a tourist! And, the people of Israel are wonderful, friendly and helpful and are sure to help you learn the proper pronunciation!
Israel is a modern country with all of the American chain restaurants that you are used to seeing at home. And that's the point… you can eat at them when you are home!! The true joy of experiencing a culture is by savoring the local cuisine. Israel is well known for its wonderful food experiences… from the famous Israeli breakfast to delicious falafel and the list goes on and on! Look for Teudat certificates in the windows of restaurants or diners if you eat only kosher food.
