Harry Finestone, a previous tour participant said:

“Tour has been by far the best experience of my life! It has made me realise who I am and why I am me and I have made loads of lifelong friends.”

Escape into the first phase and dive into the adventure of a lifetime… Bond together as a team while floating in the Dead Sea, abseiling down the Ramon Crater, water rafting down the River Jordan, riding camels with Bedouins, banana boating down the Kinneret Lake and hiking to see the iconic sunrise atop Mount Masada!

Discover in phase two, immersing yourself in Israeli culture… See the Holy Land through the eyes of an Israeli teenager. As well as discovering the different faiths and cultures that make up this unique country, and learning new skills as you marvel at Israel’s technological innovation.

Zach Igielman, who went on JLGB tour said:

 “My favorite memory, due to my particular passion for technology, was in Tel Aviv, where we visited one of Google’s amazing campuses and participated in a start-up challenge. Both of these experiences developed my interest in living and working in Israel, made us closer as a group and gave me skills for the future. This visit also gave me more of an idea of what I can achieve in the future and motivated me to continue my business venture.”

Finally, in the third phase learn about yourself while helping others. Through social action, make a real difference to society by volunteering to help the elderly and some of the most underprivileged children in the country.

Francesca Goga said:

“Going on tour with JLGB was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I had an absolutely incredible and enlightening experience that will forever be with me. It’s an opportunity to learn, grow and appreciate the history and the future of the country, not to mention making your own memories there and the lifelong friendships.”
