Bar/Bat Mitzva Tours

If you would like to celebrate a Bar/Bat Mitzva in a way that your family will never forget, do it in Israel. We will plan the trip and the event together, making sure it is tailored to your and your child’s interests, needs and wishes. The tour can be a short two-day tour including the ceremony or may last as many days as you wish.

The Bar/Bat Mitzva Tour includes creating a custom itinerary that can include various attractions, culinary tastings, a car with a driver and me as your guide.

If you already have a travel agency and a ready itinerary and are looking for a great guide that can execute your trip in the best way possible, I am your guy. Feel free to have your agency contact me.
