Elaine  

Best tour group company in Israel

26-Feb-2020

I did a lot of research before coming to Israel. CTO were the only company that reached back out to me effectively and were able to answer all of my questions. I now understand that is because they are the people who were the actual tour organizers, whereas many of the other tours advertised were the same tour sold by different agents who all book through CTO anyway. So I was talking to the source. Rebecca helped me with this entire trip until I boarded for Israel. This company was so organized that I couldn’t believe it from the moment we arrived in Tel Aviv until our very last day of the tour. A big shout out to Eyal for being such an amazing/kind tour guide and Aladdin our driver. This is a trip I will never forget.

A great company to see Israel with

05-Dec-2019

CTO provided a great experience for my tour last month, they were fantastic. Our guide was the best guide I've ever had. Mind you, I've been to forty different countries. Orna was patient, kind, and very in-touch with our needs. The hotels were good and there were never any mistakes with tickets, etc. Next time, I'd skip the in between step and book directly with CTO. The communication, price, and itinerary cannot be beat!

I can't say enough good things about our tour to Israel & Jordan. The countries and their people are amazing. CTO did a wonderful job. Everything worked clockwork. They were extremely responsive and flexible in accommodating our needs and desires. The tour guides were outstanding, very knowledgeable, flexible and a pleasure to be with. I'm telling all my firends that both countries were safe. Highly recommend CTO for organizing your visit. They're priceless !!
