Following the current project, in which the Ministry of Tourism offers the public tens of thousands of free tutorials by certified guides, through the Nature and Parks Authority – now, a group of at least 15 people can organize themselves and book instruction at the authority’s sites and around the country free. A guide can also organize a group of travelers in excess of 15 people and receive the payment for the instruction from the Ministry of Tourism through RTG.

Recently, the Ministry of Tourism has brought the guides back to work by funding free guided tours for the public. The tours can be booked at the link: https://www.parks.org.il/tayarut/ Or directly to the list of guides that can be invited to a private organization: https://www.parks.org.il/article/guide/

The project is being carried out following a government decision to assist the tourism industry, which stipulates that the Ministry of Tourism will budget guided tours for the general public at a total cost of NIS 25 million. The tours take place all days of the week, at the sites of the Nature and Parks Authority and in the various cities. Currently, about 1,600 mentors are employed in the project. You can still join by contacting the Nature and Parks Authority. The tours will soon be offered in English, Russian, French and Arabic as well.

Minister of Tourism Joel Rezbozov: “After two challenging years for the tourism industry, we have a great opportunity here to help guides and also finally get out of the zoom, return to sanity, take family and friends for free, and enjoy guided tours of cities and nature sites. So take a guide and go for a walk. “

Acting Director General of the Nature and Parks AuthorityRaya Soraki: “We are happy to open another channel through which guides will be able to benefit from the project designed to support them in the difficult time of inbound tourism to Israel since the outbreak of the Corona, through personal initiative or a dedicated appeal of groups to them. We consider the implementation of the project to be of paramount importance and are happy to be a key part of this welcome initiative. In the process, guided tours by guides will allow Israeli travelers to become more deeply acquainted with the special heritage and nature values ​​in Israel and to be exposed to lesser-known sites. ”

Ganit Peleg, Chairman of the Israel Guides Association: The Israel Guides Association welcomes any initiative that will expand the employment opportunities for guides. We expect that the variety of tours that can be guided as part of the project will be expanded to all guides in Israel and will allow them to earn a decent living. ”
