My Travel Agent Life

My life in global travel began in the 1980s when I was a flight attendant for El Al. After that, I worked for the Israeli Ministry of Tourism and then joined the Isram Israel travel agency, one of the first companies to book journeys to the Jewish state. These connections have allowed me to work closely with the Israeli tourism industry. 

Even though I no longer work for them, I still maintain a close relationship with Isram Israel because they value my business, and they know I send many travelers to Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and other Israeli locales. I still work with them closely for tours to Israel, whether my clients want a private guide or they wish to join a group tour. I have also coordinated private, guided tours for groups. 

I have never taken a one-size-fits-all approach to my customers’ vacations. A visitor who I send to the Middle East for the first time will experience a completely different itinerary when I send them back a second time. If you want to get off-the-beaten-track, I can accommodate you.  

I have traveled to countless destinations around the world, from such classic destinations as London to more exotic locales throughout Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Mexico. More recently, I’ve been booking trips to Cuba, an exciting country that is new to many tourists in the United States, even those who have been around the world several times over.  

I also sell kosher cruises and tours. I can recommend the right program and touring company, based on your specific requirements, and it would be a pleasure to work with you on a group tour or individual program.
