The incoming department of Nazarene Tours Ltd. has been offering customized tours in the Middle East for the past 45 years, arranging tours tailor-made for tourist’s needs, whether for pilgrimage groups or independent travelers, those seeking a fun-and-sun vacation, a country exploration or a historical tour, and those planning conferences and incentive tours.

Now, with the launch of its new website, the company aims to provide improved services for tourists visiting the Holy Land.

As well as guided programs in the Holy Land, the company has a wealth of experience organizing itineraries across the region, including Jordan and its hidden treasures like Petra, Egypt and the pyramids, Turkey, Lebanon and Dubai. Their guides speak a wide range of languages, and have been carefully selected to make sure they provide clients with the very best holiday experience.

Nazarene Tours has established long-term partnerships with major international travel agencies, acting as their handling agent in Israel. Their professional staff are available to offer round-the-clock help, providing a travel experience of unsurpassed authenticity and comfort. Their reputation has been built on a commitment to quality and customer service, coupled with attention to detail.

According to the company, “Nazarene Tours Ltd., established in the early 1970s as part of the Afifi Group, is one of Israel’s leading travel companies and tour operators. The company has five branches – in Nazareth, Jerusalem, Haifa, Shefaram and Carmiel – and a call center offering comprehensive services throughout Israel. It has representatives in North America, Europe and Asia, and is a member of IATA, ASTA, USTOA. Our team of professionals combine an unrivalled talent for problem-solving and the use of cutting-edge technology with responsiveness and efficiency. We offer winning solutions every time.”

The Afifi family’s move into public transportation began modestly in the 1920s when it bought a truck to help deliver crops to local markets in the Galilee. Responding to demand, the Afifis installed a bench to transport passengers too. Today the Afifi Group operates 11 companies, whose operations range from transportation, tourism and hotels to IT and investment in real-estate. The Afifi family has a proud history of building long-term relationships with customers, suppliers and business partners, both locally and internationally.
