Sar-El is a unique company in many ways but what really sets us apart from others is that we want to see you connect to what God has for you in Israel. The owner of Sar-El Tours, Samuel Smadja’s heart’s desire is that you will have more than a tour, but rather an experience, which will connect you with the land, the people and the scriptures. One that will give you a memory to take home that will connect you with Israel for the rest of your life. Your understanding of the scriptures will be changed, and you will never read the Bible the same way again as you walk in the very places mentioned in Scripture such as Capernaum, the Mt. of Olives, and Jerusalem!

By the grace of God, Samuel has built Sar-El from scratch over 20 years so that we are now one of the largest agencies focused on Christian Tourism to Israel. We are unique, proven, and committed to providing you with the very best experience of Israel, the Land of the Bible. Here’s a brief insight into what you can expect when you travel with us:


In business for over 20 years, and one of the leading agencies in Israel, our longstanding relationships with our partners are a testament to our integrity and expertise. We specialize in Christian travel to Israel.



95% of all our clients are Christian and we cater to conferences, Bible study tours, Church tours, student groups and much more! Our guides work ‘Bible in hand’ basing teaching on more than just archaeological facts, combining history with biblical teaching and application. Was Caesarea just a Herodian port city or was it also where the Apostle Paul was sent to the nations and where Peter met Cornelius starting a new wave of evangelism to the Gentiles? It makes all the difference!



We have over 300 tour guides licensed in many different languages. We vet and prioritize them to ensure that you receive the very best guides in all of Israel!



With our modern, luxury buses you are never far from WIFI, USB chargers and yes, air conditioning! Look out for the different buses we have as you travel the country: Jerusalem, Acco, the Dead Sea- each one has a different picture! Tag your pictures of our buses with #sarelbuses to share which one you traveled on.



Whether it’s English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Chinese, Dutch, Russian, Arabic, Italian, Polish, Hindi, Amharic or Hebrew, our wide range of staff in the office means that we speak your language!



Having our own media and productions company,, means that if you are a Pastor coming on tour and wanting to record teaching for example, we can help. If you need a connection to a Christian T.V. station like TBN or others, we are able to help make that happen for your event in Israel. Having worked with T.V. companies over the years we intimately understand the needs that accompany such aspects of touring Israel and holding large-scale events here.



Whether it’s holding a conference for your ministry here in Israel combined with a tour, or whether you want to give something back and dedicate time to local aid agencies and associations, we can make that happen.
