    Dear Ram and Shirley, Thank you for putting together such an amazing trip for us. My family travels together every year and my trip to Israel with my dad was one of the best we’ve ever taken. You had clearly put so much thought into our itinerary—we saw a ton in a week and much of it with few other tourists around. Ram, you are so knowledgeable, and it was such a pleasure getting to know you over the course of our trip. I would highly recommend that anyone traveling to Israel use IM Israel Travel.

    Ram, I can't even begin to tell you how much of an amazing trip I've had. I have seen and learned more in this trip than I even thought possible. You have been an unbelivable tour guide, and I so happy we got to spend these past 10 days with you

    Raffi was absolutely fantastic! He was very knowledgeable, energetic & passionate about showing me Jerusalem. We fit a lot of things in but at an enjoyable pace and in a sequence that made sense. I would highly recommend Raffi to anyone!

    I just want to thank you again for putting everything together for us... Arnon was great and very patient with our group! His knowledge and demeanor and affability no doubt made this a trip my children will remember for years to come….. For me to be able to come here with my parents, my wife, and my children, having a guide such as Arnon only served to make the trip as meaningful as it was!

    Our guide was great. He was extremely knowledgeable and understood what we wanted to see and was always amenable to changing the plan if we needed. He was very patient and easy to talk to and was a pleasure to be with.

    Dear Ram & Shirley, Thank you very much for the trip of a lifetime. We are heading home with so many great memories and know we owe so very much of that to you and the thoughtful & careful planning, and changing and adapting, with us and for us before we got here and then all the week too.

    Ram, I want to thank you for being our guide. Traveling with 14 people was quite a challenge and I want to thank you for taking the time to get to know all of us and helping with many different needs along the way. The B'nai mitzvah location was superb and continuing the ceremony at Rama's Kitchen was the perfect choice. We had the best driver! Idan took such good care of us driving us all over. I want to especially thank Shirley for all the behind-the-scenes magic.

    Thank you again for everything - we will be back. You made our first experience in Israel more amazing than we thought. Thank you for your help, guidance, and friendship. Please pass our appreciation to Shirley.

    Ram, Craig and I would like to thank you again for such an amazing week! Your knowledge of all of the history and your passion for showing us your remarkable country has left us with a feeling that can only be explained as magical… we loved every single place we visited and are already looking forward to another trip back.

    Ram, You were the perfect guide to handle our large group! From the initial itinerary planning and all throughout our trip, communication with you and Shirley was always clear and highly professional. We could not have asked for a better guide to share such impressive knowledge and passion for Israel and its history. We appreciated your good humor, local food recs, and flexibility with adjusting our schedule as needed. Everyone involved, including our driver Idan and Bethlehem guide Ramzi, were equally as pleasant and fun to spend time with during our trip! You made the entire experience so easy for us.

Travel in Israel

The land of Israel

The land of Israel The Land of Israel has always been the bridge, the pathway between the two areas where the cradle of civilization started some 10,000 years ago. The Via Maris – the road that connected Mesopotamia to Egypt, has been travelled for the last 8,000 years by individuals, groups, and nations such as the Canaanites, the Egyptians, the Israelites, the Philistines, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Persians, the Greeks, the Romans… and many more.

The Land of Israel, located at the very center of the "ancient" world, has been the cradle of development of the three major monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. For the last eight thousand years, and counting, this Land has lit a spark in people’s hearts. It blends a unique past and an extraordinary present with a variety of beautiful landscapes, which attract visitors and pilgrims from around the world. Share with us the amazing miracle of the State of Israel. From dreamers like Theodor Herzl and David Ben-Gurion to pioneers and immigrants from all over the world who have turned the ancient Biblical land into a flourishing, beautiful country and the "Startup Nation" in less than 100 years. Visit with us the ancient cities of Jerusalem, Akko and Jaffa; the vibrant city of Tel Aviv; the Mediterranean seashore; the beauty of the Sea of Galilee; the depths of the Red Sea and the healing air of the Dead Sea - the lowest place on earth. From the green forests of the North to the inspirational deserts of the South, by foot or by coach, on the back of a camel or in a private van, driving a jeep or riding a bike, by air and underwater. Any way you prefer, we will provide the ultimate experience. No one remains indifferent to the mosaic of colors, sounds, people, and atmosphere of the Land of Israel. We will reveal it – and you will fall in love with it!
