IsramWorld hosted a private familiarization tour in Israel for a number of Tzell Travel Group agents from May 20-26. Delta Air Lines provided air service. The agents, led by Tzell CEO Barry Liben, were treated to visits to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, along with Masada, the Jordan River, the Dead Sea and Sea of Galilee. IsramWorld and Tzell Travel have partnered in sending clients to Israel for over 30 years.
“While I’ve been fortunate to visit Israel almost every year for the past forty-plus years, I wanted to make sure that some of our top Tzell agents were able to experience the destination themselves and see firsthand why I love going there year-in and year-out. So who better to call on than the exceptional people of IsramWorld, who know Israel even better than I do,” explained Liben.
“The very unique relationship we’ve forged with IsramWorld has enabled both of our companies to grow far beyond our wildest expectations. We’ve succeeded together because we’re delivering some of the world’s most extraordinary experiences our clients have ever had the opportunity to enjoy. We’re proud to have sent thousands of them to Israel and look forward to sending thousands more," Liben said.
“Tzell Travel and IsramWorld have not only been working closely for decades, but we have a very special relationship that has grown and grown over the years, and I’m glad to say that today we handle a large part of the VIPs traveling with Tzell and their agents,” noted Ilana Apelboim, senior vice president of operations & chief operations officer worldwide for IsramWorld.
“This incredible IsramWorld FAM was truly life-changing for our people, and will only further enrich their clients’ experiences when they visit Israel,” Liben stated. With annual sales approaching $1.6 billion, Tzell Travel Group is part of Travel Leaders Group.
