Israel with a difference    


Feb 04,2013

Outbound tours to Israel may be quite common but unique itineraries that buck the common package tour experience are rare. One South African tour operator seems to have the right mix, writes Des Langkilde.

Jacci Peter of Live the Land Tours has an infectious enthusiasm for Israel.

As a registered South African tourist guide, Jacci visited the Land of Milk and Honey over many years, both to brush up on her guiding skills and to simply relax and take in the historical sights of this biblical land.

Having experienced everything from local ‘pilgrim’ tours to private home-stays, Jacci realised that a gap existed for ‘out of the ordinary’ tours. In collaboration with registered tourist guides in Israel she set about compiling her own unique tour itineraries, which include private home visits, a colourful night in the desert to experience Israel’s bedouin hospitality, camel rides, diving, 4x4 outings and plenty of time to relax and reflect on the spiritual exuberance of the land.
