Family celebrations and more! Our tailor-made tours have the perfect balance of fun, travel and deep exploration of Israeli life, providing your family with memories that will last a lifetime.

Safety and Security

Safety is RIIs number one priority. When touring in Israel, Ramah adheres to the security policies established by Israel’s Ministry of Education governing all field trips and activities for public school children.

All field trips are approved in advance, and again prior to each day’s program, by the appropriate authorities (including Israeli police and army). Our whereabouts are known at all times, and when they deem it necessary or advisable, armed guards and trained first-aid personnel, equipped with first aid kits, accompany our groups.
