Meet our team

Israel is the land of thousands of possible experiences and itineraries. As the premier Israel tour operator, we are here to realize any dream visit to Israel and the region – be it an adventure-filled journey back in time, a personal exploration of heritage, a religious quest, a coming-of-age celebration, or just a great vacation tailored to what delights you.

Founded more than fifty years ago by Elhanan Dvir, our Founder and President, Kenes Tours is known a leading innovator in the Israeli tour industry.

As of April 28, 2015, Kenes Tours is part of the ISSTA Group, becoming Kenes Tours Global Service Ltd. combining a fast paced and innovative world with proven reliability, expertise and efficiency.

The Kenes Tours team is committed to providing our clients the highest standards of service at competitive prices. Our customized private tour packages, for both individuals and groups, operate seamlessly with the help of our expert, experienced staff, and our strategic alliances with local tourism partners and suppliers, both in Israel and beyond her borders to our neighbors including Jordan, Egypt, Turkey and Greece.

Israel has something to offer everyone of every special interest. Our goal is to have our clients not only return home from a perfect memorable vacation but also to return to use us for their future ventures and creation of unforgettable memories.
