Israel Insiders: Perfect Singles Trip to Israel

Have you dreamed of touring Israel but put it off because you didn't want to travel alone?

Gil Travel has the solution for you! Our Israel Insiders Tour allows individuals to explore Israel with a group of like-minded singles.

In Israel, there are growing numbers of single individuals and fewer couples than in years past. Israelis use the term “seeking” to describe individuals who are looking to start a relationship. Because so many singles love to travel, we have designed a program specifically for them.  On the Israel Insiders Tour, scheduled for November 8-17, 2014, participants between the ages of 45 to 65 will meet the leaders of Israel’s high tech companies and start-ups, and spend time with a local journalist to learn about Israel’s present-day issues, while exploring the country’s cultural and historical sites. It's a perfect combination of mixing business with pleasure!
