Tourist Israel launches the first ever combined touring packages of the region. The tour packages which are available from January 2021, feature the highlights of Israel, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi and last for 11 days. Among the sites are Jerusalem’s Old City, vibrant Tel Aviv, floating in the Dead Sea, Abu Dhabi’s Grand Mosque, and the wonder of modern day Dubai.
A longer 13 day tour version incorporates Petra and Wadi Rum in Jordan proving that regional tourism in the Middle East, much as has been for so long in Europe or South East Asia, is finally possible.
The packages are offered with guaranteed departures, including touring of all major sites, overnight accommodation in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Dubai, and all the arrangement of relevant visas. The internal flights can also be included however it is expected that guests will prefer to arrange their own flights as part of their in-and-out tickets. Emirates announced they plan to serve Tel Aviv from January 2021, whilst Israel’s Israir will commence flights between the countries in October 2020. Etihad, El Al, and WizzAir are also expected to fly between the countries.
“The peace agreement combined with the direct flights being launched between the countries next month finally enable the possibility of regional tourism in the Middle East. These two countries are remarkable wonders of humanity, and we are proud to use our technology to create a network of tours offered by providers in both countries and offer this with guaranteed departure and live bookings” said Tourist Israel‘s founder Ben Julius.
Yossi Orbach, CEO of Tourist Israel Tours said “We have long offered tours combining Israel with Jordan and Egypt, however we believe this new combination with Dubai will be a game changer for the industry and for the experience of visitors who travel to the Middle East from afar and until now were usually deceived of the possible of visiting the UAE alongside Israel on the grounds that it was simply very expensive and complicated to pull off.”
