Enjoy Israel travel guide

Nice to meet you. We are CTO, Consolidated Tour Operators, celebrating over 50 years since being established in 1969.

Lots of water has passed through the River Jordan since that winter morning in which 4 British and a Frenchman boarded what later became known as the first Highlights Tour of Israel ever.

Our aim was – and still is – to offer everybody an opportunity to take part in a comprehensive group tour within an affordable budget. Our love of Israel has led us – through the years – to create tours showing the best of Israel from north to south, as well as the Middle East, especially Jordan & Egypt. We built the tours in order to let you enjoy your journey knowing that all is being taking care of for you.

From your arrival until your departure, we look after all your land arrangements. Our representative will meet and assist you right after passport control; the tour guide will meet you the next morning at your hotel and escort you to the A/C touring vehicle to start your wonderful experience throughout the country. All the sites visits are pre-arranged, and the only action you need to take is to reach for your camera.

In Israel we offer our tours in various languages such as English, Spanish, German, French, Dutch, Italian and Portuguese. For Jordan the regular tours are in English and Spanish and in Egypt the regular tours are in English.

Other than the tours, we are able to provide you with any tourism services you might need; hotel accommodations, private tours etc. As a wholesaler company CTO can guarantee competitive rates with a friendly personal service.

The founder of the company Mr. Moshe Eshed (pictured above with a group at Mount Zion in Jerusalem in 1969) was one of the foundations of the tourism industry in Israel as well as former World President of the International Association of Tour Managers. Today the company is managed by Mr. Noam Eshed – a director of the Israel Incoming Tour Operators Association – who shares the family love of Israel and passion for travel, together with a skilled staff. We are happy to have in our staff a great combination of Israel’s top tour guides, knowledgeable tour operators & experienced drivers available at your service. Our staff is here to do its utmost to make sure you will have a lifetime experience in the land of creation.

Designed to bring together the vision of the Israeli State founders, the tour is great for families who seek the perfect holiday vacation and still create a link to their roots. An excellent opportunity for second-time visitors to experience different highlights.

The perfect choice for seeing the major sites and highlights of Israel. Visiting Jerusalem’s Old and New City, Via Dolorosa, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Ein Karem, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Beit Shean, Sea of Galilee, Tabgha, Capernaum, Mount of Beatitudes, Safed, Golan Heights, Haifa, Acre, Caesarea, Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Masada & Dead Sea.

Experience the major sites of Israel, visiting Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth, Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Mount of Beatitudes, Golan Heights, Haifa, Acre, Caesarea, Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Masada & Dead Sea and more. Extend your tour to Jordan with a visit to the “rose red city, half as old as time” – Petra, to marvel at the ancient Nabatean city.

Visiting Israel is not just a sightseeing tour; it is also an enlightening experience. Walking where Jesus walked and lived, visitors return with a deep appreciation of the bible. Visit historical treasures and stroll through unique sites and panoramas. For a blend of traditions and religion, this tour offers a deep, spiritual experience.

1,2,3 & 4 Day tours from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem or Eilat
CTO give you the option to visit Jordan on either a 3 or 4 day tour, which can be booked as an extension to your Israel tour, or just a tour to Jordan. Visiting: Jerash – City of the Decapolis, known in Biblical times as the Pompeii of the Middle East. Amman – capital of the Hashemite Kingdom and the largest city in the country. Mount Nebo – with its breathtaking view across the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea to see the Holy Land from where Moses stood. Madaba – to see the famous 6th century ancient Holy Land Map. Shobak – the crusader castle. Petra – with a horseback ride to the “Siq” (Canyon), the Treasury (El Khazneh), the field of tombs, obelisks, the altar, amphitheatre and much more at this stunning new 7 wonders of the world site. We also offer 1 or 2 day tours to Petra from Eilat or including flights from Tel Aviv.

Classic Cairo Tours & Nile Cruises
Also available as an extension to tours in Israel or as a stand-alone tour, is a city break to Cairo or a combined Cairo & Nile Cruise tour. In Cairo, the Pyramids of Giza, Khan el Khalili bazaar and The Egyptian Museum of Antiquities are amongst the landmarks not to be missed offering an unforgettable experience, filled with history, culture and amazing sights and sounds. Few holidays offer the mystery or fascination of a Nile Cruise. Many of Egypt’s iconic sites are located near the majestic Nile – and you can explore most of them on a Nile Cruise. Spend the day discovering the enthralling tombs, temples and artifacts left behind by the Pharoahs and in the evening relax in style on board a luxurious cruise boat. Combine a Cairo visit with the Temples of Karnak and Luxor, the Valley of the Kings, Edfu, Kom Ombo and Aswan.
