Executive Committee members of the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) traveled through Israel this week as part of a group visit at the invitation of Haim Gutin, Israel Commissioner for Tourism, North and South America, and co-sponsored by El Al Israel Airlines.

The USTOA tour of Israel included visits to Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Acre, Safed, the Galilee and Nazareth, Caesarea, the Dead Sea and Masada. The visit also included meetings with local tourism officials and a special USTOA board meeting.

“We are thrilled to have hosted the most influential tour operator association in the United States for an exclusive tour around Israel,” said Haim Gutin, Israel Commissioner for Tourism, North and South America.

“We hope all attendees will return from Israel inspired and will help attract a new wave of travelers to visit Israel this year.”

The United States Tour Operators Association is the largest professional trade association for American tour operators.
