Loved the trip! The itinerary was fantastic and really kept us moving. We were able to see and do so much. Best of all was our tour guide Natalie. She was very kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable on every aspect of Israel.

Our family just returned January 3rd from our 12 day IBMT vacation. We had such an amazing time visiting Israel and having our son Bar Mitzvah'd at the same time. Planning the trip was very easy and all of our questions were always answered in a timely fashion. Everything was extremely organized and well thought out.
We were able to experience the usual tourist areas, but also parts of Israel that were unexpected. We loved the epicure walking tour, Shabbat Dinner at our hosts home, making pita and hummus, lunch in a Druze home, riding camels and so much more!
Our guide Natalie, was not only amazing at her job, but became an important part of our experience on the tour. She is fantastic!
We loved it!!

I cannot imagine a better, more organized, more perfect experience! IBMT went above and beyond all expectations!
Review by Dezi Astephen10 months ago
I would rename this Incredible Israel Bar Mitzvah Tours. The whole experience was inspirational and IBMT was responsible for much of that feeling with the help of the country itself. From day one to the end each day was better and better. Natalie was and is wonderful, caring , thoughtful and intelligent. Five super stars for IIBMT, Ornan, Natalie and the state of Israel. Toda Raba to all .

It was the trip of a life time and Gadi Dahan was one of the best tour guides I have ever had and this was my 5th time to Israel. The trip was very well organized and the itinerary included a great mix of historical, museums, archeology and fun.

I have been on two Israel Bar Mitzvah tours with IBMT. Both were unbelievable, once in a lifetime, experiences. Ornan was very easy to work with and treated us like family.

I had the most amazing trip with IBMT. Our guide, Gadi, knew so much and answered all questions. He was funny and helpful. The tour covered so much of Jerusalem, Golan Heights, and Tel Aviv. There were experiences we could choose to do or do something else The bar/bat Mitzvah event and party was so wonderful. Being on Masada was amazing. There were so many highlights. The powered parachute fulfilled a bucket list dream. I have recommended this trip to several people already and will continue do so. I would have stayed longer if I could have.

Review by Siadkowska1 year ago
We had an amazing time on our tour. Our tour guide, Gadi was awesome from the start. He was a wealth of information and very warm and friendly. IBMT is wonderful in the fact that it is a small group experience, not bus loads of people like some other tours. We made friends for life on our tour and memories to equal that. It was a wonderful trip. My kids had a great time which is all that matters in the end.

My grandchildren had a great time as well as the adults. The program was geared for the Bat Mitzvah and Bar Mitzvah kids to have a life long experience as well as the parents and relatives.
Review by Orsie1 year ago
The best vacation we have ever taken. Very well thought through program, amazing tour guide and incredible experience all around. I am coming back to schedule more trips to Israel. We went as a family as four - two parents, bae mitzvah boy and his 6 year old sister. Everyone had an amazing time! Gadi was the best - Thank you!

Israel Bar Mitzvah Tours (IBMT) was an incredible experience. Every detail was so well planned. The accommodations were incredible and the amount of activities and sights we were able to see in 12 days was amazing. We couldn't have asked for a more exceptional tour Guide (Gadi D.) and bus driver (Avi). It truly was an amazing experience!!

What a trip. Well organized and clean. Everything was as promised with an excellent guide to keep my 3 teenage boys, my wife and I engaged for the entire 2 week adventure.

Review by Bred Uggs1 year ago
Fun tour. Excellent guides. Great highlight of the country and history with a good mix of kid- friendly activities (kids really bonded by the end of the trip). Would value having a welcome gathering for everyone (not just bar mitzvah kids) on the tour. Would be best to do one at the start of the tour (morning/ day after arrival). With 2 buses and approx. 60 people on the tour, it is a shame we didn't meet many of the others until the last day of the trip. Would be great also to have a list of other group members before the tour even started so connections could have been made earlier. The food was delicious and accommodations good. Having live Israeli music at some part of the trip would be a wonderful addition, plus would like dinners to be less rushed (not so mass market feeling). Also think each family on tour-- or at least bar mitzvah kids --should be provided (no fee) with a bag of mud at the dead sea. All in all a strong 4- star trip, with some more attention to detail/ tweaking could be even better!

I have never left the country and was an apprehensive traveler for sure. IBMT took such good care of us I was able to relax and enjoy everything. Gadi is an amazing guide and I will never forget this trip. It was my once in a lifetime.

This was our second time doing the Israel Bar Mitzvah Tour with IBMT. And once again it was a fabulous itinerary with many new additions from four years ago that only added to the our enjoyment. A wonderful mix of religious/historical sites and fun/relaxing excursions that provide a great balance to jam packed days. The ceremony on Masada is truly special and the party at Abraham's Tent with camel rides, drums and dancing is a really great way to celebrate. Walking tours through all the different food markets and getting to sample the local foods was a great addition. Thank you IBMT for another memorable experience for my family.
Review by Pyreos1 year ago
IBMT organized such a wonderful bat mitzvah experience for my niece that I had to do my daughters through them as well. Thankfully, the tours changed enough for both to be fantastic. I recommend them highly.
Review by Yunchai Grysztar1 year ago
The hotels were truly 5 star. All additional facilities were 5 star as well. The bus was comfortable with an excellent driver and even had on board at every seat USB charger outlets. The selection of places to visit were excellent. But by far, the best feature was Gadi, our guide. How he could have improved his service on the tour is impossible to comprehend . He was the the perfect guide for the kids as well as the adults. There was no service he couldn't provide and his knowledge was truly hard to believe it fit into one mind. Shame I don't have any younger grandkids to take on this same tour.

Our son’s Bar Mitzvah Tour through IBMT was perfect!!! The tour guide was incredible, the itinerary was everything we could have hoped for and the Bar Mitzvah was magical. Ornan was a pleasure to work with.
