Travel Advice Summary

All of our holidays to Israel follow the travel advice offered by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). Our tours in Israel are currently running as normal. Acts of violence have occurred within the West Bank and have been against Israeli citizens and not tourists. Our team in Israel is in constant contact with the Israeli Ministry of Tourism and monitors the situation.
