Testimonials
“Via Sabra's November 2019 tour "In Search of Israeli Cuisine" was fantastic. It combined learning about the places we visited with learning about and tasting the cuisine of these places. Many of the destinations were unusual; all were fascinating. Our guide Orit Levi's knowledge, enthusiasm, and charm enhanced the experience,”

“An Experience which was Perfection! Via Sabra is an incredible company which we both recommend highly. They created an extraordinary trip for my husband and me. They spent a great deal of time developing a good sense of who we are and our interests. They then planned a trip which was perfectly geared to us. They surpassed all expectations which we had and no request was too much for them. We explored history, culture, religion, politics and Israel’s splendid food and wine all highlighted by exceptional guiding. ”
