C.T.O - Israel Tours and Travel
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.
