SO MUCH MORE THAN A TRAVEL COMPANY
We understand that travel to Israel is unlike any other destination – which is why your choice of a program provider is the single most important decision you'll make. With Authentic Israel, feel confident knowing that every program we offer is organized in-house by our own caring staff team. We are not travel agents or an online company. Rather, we provide rich travel experiences that are well-designed, well-organized, and offered at a fair value.
Based in central Israel and with a North American office in Washington, DC, our team is able to provide a higher level of service before and during your travels. Expect more with us.
Authentic Israel is part of the Tlalim Group, an Israeli organization involved in activities as diverse as tourism, multi-media entertainment, and instructional education. The original roots of Tlalim are in experiential education, and we are proud to positively impact the future of the Jewish People and beyond through our diverse experiences.
Authentic Israel organizes travel experiences for a variety of ages, some of which we offer under these program names:
Israel Outdoors is a leading organizer of free trips through the Birthright Israel initiative. Open to Jewish young adults, ages 18-26, who have never been to Israel on a peer program, this is a once-in-a-lifetime gift and adventure.
Israel Outdoors NEXT is an organizer of generously-subsidized life experiences for young adults, ages 18-35. Program options range from four weeks to ten months, and include opportunities for teaching, remote working, interning, and paid career positions in Israel.
Authentic Europe specializes in custom travel experiences to Europe and Morocco for groups and organizations of all kinds. Our programs are operated in-house by a team of caring and experienced professionals.
The Bible Comes to Life (TBCTL) is a travel experience center for Christian faith pilgrim groups where the stories of the Bible are presented in a manner that connects with all senses in the Land of Creation.
In a world of dizzying online options, making a choice can seem challenging.
