Basic things to consider before planning a tour to Israel.
THE PACKAGE DEAL PRICE (AIR AND LAND) IS DETERMINED BY THE FOLLOWING POINTS:
a. The Season in which the tour takes place will affect the pricing greatly. The cheapest season is between November and March (NOT including Jewish and Christian Feasts!). The most expensive season is during the summer (I.e., July and August), and during the Jewish and Christian Feasts.
b. The actual number of travelers on the tour also has a great effect on the price. The more travelers on the tour, the less expensive the package deal price will be! To be considered a "tour group" and get a discount from hotels, they ask for a minimum of 10 people (even 15 in some cases).
c. The number of days spent in Israel will affect the cost of the tour- more days, more expenses, and therefore more expensive.
d. The number of sites that you would like to visit, depending on their nature.
e. Whether or not you use your “free deal” privilege. Tour Your Roots provides one free deal per ten travelers. It would greatly affect the tour package deal price if you would like to have more (for example 1 free for every 5 travelers).
RECOMMENDED SEASONS TO TRAVEL TO ISRAEL:
We highly recommend traveling to Israel in Spring (mid-Feb. through the end of April). This is due to the weather which is most comfortable during this time of year- not too cold, and not too hot. Another reason is Mount Hermon, which should still have snow during that time, making the views in the north magnificent, and the flowers will be budding all around.
If you are interested in experiencing the Jewish Feasts then you can choose to come between the Fall and Spring, depending on your preferences.
ATTRACTIONS AND PLACES OF INTEREST OUTSIDE OF ISRAEL:
Tour Your Roots offers activities and site-seeing outside of Israel as well. Whether you wish to see Petra in Jordan, the Sinai Peninsula, or any other place. If you would like to add these to your itinerary, it will affect the package deal price and the overall length of the tour.
