Seniors Trips to Israel


Golden Agers have the time to enjoy themselves in a new and special way: No longer worried about limited vacation time, and without having to consider school breaks, they are free to make their own decisions about when to take the trip they’ve been dreaming of.

What kind of tour are Seniors looking for?

  • Seniors choose escorted tours to allow quick transfers, arrange accommodations, entrance fees, refreshments and restrooms (!!!).
  • Seniors prefer going at a slower more leisurely pace and with more rest stops and an air-conditioned luxury motor coach.
  • Seniors prefer tours that cover Israeli highlights and are flexible enough to meet their requests.
  • Seniors enjoy meeting real Israelis.
  • Today’s Seniors ask for casual trails suitable for elderly people’s needs. Senior Tours must take into consideration accessibility, mobility, and ability to do stairs.
  • Seniors want to hear local Israeli speakers explain about the country.
  • Seniors require a tour guide and tourist agency attuned to their medical needs, wishes and limitations. Often Seniors request a customized tour.

Senior Tours can be non-denominational, Jewish or Christian depending on their preferences.

Jewish Senior Tours

Jewish Seniors may choose to arrange special Bar Mitzva tours with their grandchildren. Many Jewish Seniors come on a Synagogue Tour of Israel together with their local Rabbi. Jewish Seniors can vet for visits to an Israeli Reform synagogue or an Israeli Conservative synagogue. Today, there Jewish Seniors who want to experience Israel for the first time. These tours are called “Birthright Tours for Boomers”.
