But what if your vacation could allow you to relax and help other people at the same time?
Vacations are inherently selfish. After all, the whole point of going on vacation is so you can relax and enjoy some much-needed personal time. And why shouldn’t you? You work hard all year, toiling away for hours at the office when you’d much rather be somewhere else.
So when it comes time to plan your vacation, you naturally ask yourself, “Where do I want to go? What do I want to do? How can I get the best experience possible?” Your vacation is for you, and you alone.
But what if your vacation could allow you to relax and help other people at the same time? By taking a vacation to Israel, we can help you enjoy a socially responsible experience that benefits everyone!
The tourism industry has many faces. On one hand, it can benefit local economies and create jobs for local residents. On the other hand, it can cause a lot of environmental and social issues.
Over-tourism is a real problem that drastically disrupts communities in popular tourist destinations. In many cases, money generated by tourism doesn’t directly benefit local residents, instead going mostly to big companies that sell vacation packages while very little of it goes into the local economy of the destination visited.
On top of that, tours of these destinations tend to focus only on the most famous and popular sights. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, we believe this practice misses a greater opportunity to effect real positive change.
What if the next time you went on vacation, you could support people with special needs, troubled youth, and local community projects, all while still enjoying the relaxation and personal time you deserve? It may sound strange, but it is possible. And we’re proudly making this positive change in Israel.
Tourism is a major source of income for Israel, with a record-breaking 3.6 million tourists visiting the country in 2017 alone. As citizens with a deep personal connection to the social issues in our country, we saw an opportunity to channel our passion and experience in tourism into making a real difference in Israel.
We’ve created tour packages designed to support and empower our local communities. This doesn’t mean your vacation would be any less enjoyable for you. It simply means that your hard-earned relaxation time would also benefit other people.
We created our custom tours of Israel—luxury tours, family tours, bar/bat mitzvahs, short tours, and more—with the people who really need our help in mind. Our tours will take you through the same attractions and activities that make a vacation to Israel so enjoyable. The difference is that our form of tourism supports a great cause.
So if you’re already considering taking a vacation to Israel, why not choose a more meaningful experience that will benefit you and the people you’ll meet along the way? You’re sure to discover that a truly fulfilling vacation doesn’t have to be all about you!
