Tour privately with your own driver/guide…in a comfortable late-model car or microbus…in a more intimate and personalized atmosphere… then, consider the Private Car alternative!

Prelude, Minuet, Overture, Rhapsody, Serenade, Fantasia, Symphony, and Israel Plus Eilat & Petra (excludes Eilat/Petra portions). Private Car arrival and departure transfers are also included between airports and hotels for the international flights (all must arrive and depart together).

 

Questions & Answers about Private Car Sightseeing on our renowned tours

Q What are the advantages of touring by Private Car?

A In a private car or microbus you command the complete attention of your driver/guide. Start a bit later, stay longer at a site of special interest to you, indulge yourself with a leisurely lunch! Our guides are flexible and totally interested in fulfilling your needs.

Q Do we have the same sightseeing on a Private Car tour?

A Yes! You’ll follow the tours stated above with your own exclusive private vehicle and guide, and also stay at the same hotels. (This gives you the advantage of our group rates at hotels!) In addition, you’ll participate in the unique visits highlighted in our itinerary, often available only for groups. Therefore, on a few occasions, you will join our motorcoach passengers for the special visits at these sites.

Q Do we join the other tour participants for special meals?

A If you’re traveling by Private Car, dining will be at the same restaurants as the motorcoach passengers. You may choose to

be seated privately and not with the group. As an added convenience, passengers on the exclusive Private Car who have Friday night dinner scheduled in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem will dine at their own hotel.

Q Is our guide always with us?

A The Private Car guide is assigned to you for each touring day and scheduled evening activities, with the exception of: Tel Aviv: Saturday Morning Walking Tour.  If your selected tour includes the above activity, you will be joined with our motorcoach passengers for these services; the ISRAMISRAEL Tour Host will be aware of your participation. Generally, the Private Car guide does not stay overnight at your hotel as other accommodations are usually arranged for him/her. However, do not be concerned — you’ll always know where to reach him/her.

Q Does our guide dine with us?

A We believe that when you dine, you should do so in the company of your own family and friends, with private moments to reflect on your experiences — not to mention, your guide probably needs his “break time” as well! (He will generally join his fellow guides during these times.) Your guide’s meals have all been taken care of by us.

Q How much does it cost to tour by Private Car?

A Please see the chart below, which outlines the appropriate supplements.
