Jewish adult tour of israel in october budget friendly

Looking for an affordable tour for two active middle aged sisters.

Would prefer to be all adults. Has anyone heard of Women Going to Israel, five Senses Tour?

I had never heard of them before but they do have a really good website. They are not a Jewish tour, though, and if you are looking for a truly Jewish experience, this might not be for you. Note that Shabbat is spent at the Dead Sea for example. If this doesn't matter to you then it looks like a good option. The price is quite consistent with other similar tours of this nature and size from Canada. US tours are generally less expensive but they may also have larger numbers of participants. Why not contact the company and ask for references you can contact directly?

If this tour is in your price range, then you actually have a lot of choices available. Budget friendly certainly means different things to different people.

I recall you saying that you were looking for a Jewish Tour and want to have a Jewish experience. Arza World offers great tours but they are from a Reform Jewish perspective. If that is a good fit for you, check them out at

arzaworld.com/israel-tours/11-day-inside-isr… They list the highlights of their 11 day tour. A 'Mifgash' means an 'encounter' and 'Zedek project' translates loosely as 'righteous deeds' but what they are talkin about is doing a few hours with a food bank organization where you will pick the fruit or vegetables from the fields that will be delivered to food banks across the country within hours. I have done this several times and it really is very rewarding. Not the 'usual' kind of experience people have in Israel. I have used Arza's services before and so has our synagogue and we have been very happy with them. Their prices are land only but are very reasonable for what is provided.

My parents took an amazing Adult only tour to Israel. They LOVED it. Great mix of culture, the must see places plus many off the beaten track experiences that made the trip for them truly special.

It is called Gama Tours. 877-680-0122.

Loved our tour but did often feel rushed and exhausted. Would have loved to linger a bit in various places.

That is the standard "drawback" of group tours - there is a packed itinerary that has to be completed, add to that the time it takes for the group to get on the bus, off the bus, etc.

You get the picture - there is rarely, if ever time to "linger a bit" on these tours.

Bottom line - glad that you loved the tour and enjoyed yourself. Next time when you can come you can go it alone and set your own pace.

Look at Margaret Morse. While they are frequently mentioned for Bar Mitzvah tours they also run all adult groups. They ARE more expensive but they include EVERYTHING!

Also look into this group

They do run, adult only trips too. ( not to mention that when school is open you don't get kids--talk to them
