Safety/Security 2017-09-08T19:11:36+00:00

Have you ever mentioned to someone that you’d like to visit Israel and received a response along the lines of, “Wow. I don’t think I’d do that. It isn’t safe!”?

You are not alone! Many visitors have had this response from concerned family and friends (and a few strangers!) about travel to the Holy Land. Most of the time when Israel is spoken about in the news, it is because of something bad happening, but there is a difference between rhetoric and reality!

The reality is, Israel Is one of the safest countries in the world to visit. While there are daily security concerns, as there are for any free country, most days are lived in peace. Both Arabic and Hebrew are spoken as official languages of the state. Arabs and Jews both serve in Parliament and other government positions. Many live in peace and friendship everyday, living life side-by-side.

In fact, you are increasingly more likely to be a victim to terrorism in most European countries and the US than you are in Israel!

It is important to remember that millions of visitors come to Israel every year with no incidence. We at Immanuel Tours would never put those who travel with us in harm’s way. If we felt any situation arose that made it unsafe, we would be very upfront and work with our groups to ensure not only safety, but peace of mind. We want those who travel to Israel with us to leave wishing they never had to and understanding why we love this place so much.

Know that every effort is taken to ensure the safety of those who travel with us. We use only the best tour buses that offer superior safety and our drivers and tour guides are well-versed in how to respond in every situation, should one arise. Your safety is the most important thing to us and something we work tirelessly to ensure.

So next time someone tells you it isn’t safe to travel to Israel, feel confident in replying, “yes it is!”!

    Immanuel Tours provided very personalized service to us. Two of our group flew in from Egypt ahead of the others by about 8 hours. The two were settled into the hotel, picked up by car by Susan herself and driven to the airport to meet the rest of the incoming group and ride the bus back to the hotel as a group. No extra charge, ''just part of it'' they told us. There were six employees on hand to meet us at the airport to make sure everything went smoothly.

    I could continue, but this email cannot do justice to the service and accommodations Immanuel Tours provided us. I guess the strongest statement I can make is that we are returning with another group this coming year. The thought of using someone else has not even crossed our minds. These people took care of business, and became our friends in the process.

     Thank you so much for a very well organized tour/pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Our guide, Asher, and our driver, David, were very nice & they were so great. Very knowledgeable too! It was a wonderful experience.  We hope to visit the Holy Land again with Immanuel Tours.

    I must tell you I give both Immanuel Tours and Mordi my highest recommendation – Donna and I had an amazing trip. The personal service, hotels, attention to detail and most of all the flexibility of Mordi (he learned I like frozen coffees – so there was always a stop somewhere) to change up the itinerary when timing/location deemed necessary.

    Now a special word about Mordi – his knowledge and passion for Israel is so evident in his spirit it is a joy to spend time with him. He has a great sense of humor (which I’m sure he needed with us) and loved sharing his Jewish faith and Israeli heritage during our unending questions.

    Yoav – a note of thanks for all your help with our pilgrimage – I know you did all the legwork for the sites, hotels and details. It was flawless and we appreciate all your hard work. You’re the best!

    Again, thank you Immanuel Tours – it was a life changing experience and you made it happen.

    Next year, in Jerusalem!

    My first pilgrimage to The Promised Land was with Immanuel Tours and the entire trip exceeded my expectations. I liked it so much that my husband and I signed up for another tour the following year and took 5 family members with us! Okay, so if that wasn’t enough we signed up again this year and took 4 more friends! Yes, that is three years in a row!

    When I go back to Israel, I will only travel with Immanuel Tours. Outstanding guides, exceptional drivers, and first rate service. Immanuel Tours is truly excited to be a part of your incredible, experience in the Holy Land and care about every little detail.

    Our first experience with Immanuel Tours was over 10 years ago in 2006.  We have been using them ever since and can say the service level has never wavered.  They offer impeccable customer service, with such personal attention given to every detail.  We consider them not just our tour company but they have become our Israeli family.  We have been so blessed through them and highly recommend them.
