Frequently Asked Questions - Israel

How far in advance should I book my tour?

Holidays to Israel are best booked well in advance. Israel is a destination that can be visited year round. Temperatures are generally high, sunshine is near always guaranteed and the waters of the Dead Sea are ever warm, particularly between the summer months of May to September. Popular departures dates coincide with Public holidays and school holidays, so book early to guarantee your place.

What type of people will be on my tour?

A typical group will have international mix of travellers. Our passengers come from all walks of life and from all over the English speaking world. Our group tours suit the spirited traveller, so you're likely to have plenty in common with other memebers of the group before you even meet. We attract many solo travellers, some couples and from time to time, groups of friends.

If I am booking pre tour accommodation, with On The Go, on your Israel Explorer tour , will you collect me from the airport?

Yes, if you are booking pre tour accommodation with On The Go, our airport arrival to hotel transfer included on day 1 of this tour, will be re-scheduled to co-ordinate with your pre-tour accommodation arrangements.

On your Israel Explorer tour, is it possible to book a departure transfer with you?

Yes, we are able to arrange a departure transfer from our hotel to the airport at the end of your tour. You are able to arrange this locally with our team in Israel. It maybe that your flight deaprts at a similar time to others on your tour and as such costs can be split between the group. Alternatively take a cab, though the cost maybe higher.

Are your tours in Israel suitable for single travellers?

Yes! We take lots of single travellers to Israel, and the great thing about our tours is that you are in a group so you will always have plenty of company, and the shared experience is a great way to form some lasting friendships.

If you’re travelling on a tour that includes arrangements in Egypt, Jordan or both and would like to share a room with a fellow traveller of the same sex, on the go can arrange this on the Egypt and Jordan conponents of your tour. Whilst in Israel we will try our best to match you up with a room mate though if this is not possible, you will be required to pay the single supplement for this particular component of your tour.
If undertaking a city stay, tailor made itinerary, bolt-on or pre or post tour accommodation, the single supplement will need to be paid if you’re travelling alone.

Can I create my own itinerary or do a private tour?

Yes, we offer a selection of tailor-made holidays to Israel. We can also arrange a multi-destination holiday that includes arrangements in neighbouring Jordan and Egypt. Our expert team of tailor-made consultants specialise in planning holidays bespoke to your requirements. Simply let us know what you would like the do, the modes of transport you would like to use and the standard of accommodation you would prefer and we would be more than happy to arrange a holiday for you.

Can I travel to Israel for Easter, Xmas/New Years or Israeli National holidays?

We advise not to tour within Israel or undertake tailor-made arrangments during these peak holiday periods. Though hotel availability is highly sort and costs are higher. We do not offer group tours that include arrangements in Jordan or Egypt during these periods as many of the land border crossings are closed on National holidays and when they do re-open are prone to lengthy delays.

Do you accept children on your Israel holidays?

On our group tours, including those that incorporate arrangements in Jordan and/or Egypt we welcome children 15 years or older, accompanied by a parent/guardian if under the age of 18. We welcome children of all ages on our Private Journeys and Tailor-made holidays.
