Security Code

It is an important new Internet security feature that now appears on the back of most Visa and Master Cards, and on the front of American Express cards. This new code is a three or four-digit number which provides a cryptographic check of the information embossed on the card. The security code helps validate that the customer placing the online order actually has the credit card in his/her possession, and that the credit/debit card account is legitimate. Click here for image showing location of security code. When you give your Card Security Code to a merchant, you assist the merchant in verifying that the order is being placed by you, the card holder. If this code is printed on your card, YES, you must enter the code. Visa, MasterCard, and American Express now require Internet stores to obtain the security code for all cards that have a code printed on them. In order for a transaction to be accepted and processed, you must enter this code if it’s printed on your card. This is done for your protection.

Testimonials

We recently returned from a IBMT Tour for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and we all agree that it was the best vacation that we have taken to date.  The tour was well organized and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable.  The events that they include in the tour include everything “must see” in Israel and activities that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.  The tour allows for activities for all ages and accommodates anyone who wants to do more or less than they have planned.  It is obvious to me and my family that they have put serious thought into planning the tour as all of the logistics were worked out.  We would confidently refer this tour group to anyone considering a Bar Mitzvah tour in Israel.

IBMT TESTIMONIAL

In August we went to Israel for our son’s Bar Mitzvah with our entire family. We had people ranging in age from 9 to 79 and needed a trip that would be fun for all. Ornan and his team at IBMT really took the time to get to know me and to find out what we needed before he planned a trip that everyone has agreed was the best and most memorable family trip that we’ve ever been on. The trip ran flawlessly and every detail was considered. We were able to customize our entire experience and all of his recommendations turned out to be amazing. Most importantly he was always available when I had any questions and worked tirelessly to reassure me that our trip would be perfect and it was.

Hi Ornan,

"Opting to celebrate our son's bar mitzvah this summer with IBMT is one of the best decisions we've ever made.  The itinerary took us to places around the country that I've never experienced on previous trips to Israel.  Experiencing our son's bar mitzvah atop Masada as opposed to a more rushed, crowded experience at the wall truly sets IBMT apart from other tour companies.  The professionalism of the IBMT staff both in North America and Israel was superb...everything was incredibly well organized and we were heartened by IBMT's level of diligence in ensuring that every hotel and restaurant fully accommodated our son's food allergies.  Our tour guide Natalie was the highlight of the trip -- she is warm, incredibly knowledgeable, and tailored the experience for everyone's needs.  The other families on ...

To Ornan and  IBMT Tours staff,

We just got back from tour with IBMT for our Bat Mitzvah Tour in Israel.

We are so glad we have chosen the right company for our tour as I can’t express my words of how wonderful this tour company was, starting before we left, the personal service they showed here back home and later the service in Israel with our great tour guide Natalie who was so informative on every place we went and what we saw. It was so wonderful to listen to a person with so much knowledge, she made it very interesting for all of us to enjoy and we all became one big family.
Fun, Excitement & Connection, IBMT you are more then that. Everyone took care of each other looking after the children, everyone pitched in

Ornan,

Thank you very much for the IBMT Bat Mitzvah tour we just completed.  We had a fabulous time & there were lots of special little parts from the tour that contributed to that.  The different experiences for dinner were very special, and I liked the variety of different types of sites/attractions.  Our tour guide Natalie was excellent, and I heard good things from the other group about their guide Liat.

Thanks again

Bar Mitzvah Tour in Europe

Hi Ornan

We just returned from our trip this afternoon. We had a wonderful time and our trip was seamless! All three guides were great and drivers were professional as well.
Thanks for putting together the Siddur. It will be such a nice memento.

One quick question-is there a way to forward  an additional tip on to Budapest guide Agi Antal? Is it best to deal with her directly or can I send you a check to be given to her by her tour group? I am not sure how that works???

Thanks again for planning such a great trip!!  We will highly recommend your services to others!

Warmly

Shayna Green and Eric Genin

The Best Bat Mitzvah Experience

Our family had a wonderful 2 week experience with IBMT in August, 2015. My wife, daughters (age 12 and 13) and parents (age 71 and 72) all had a simply incredible experience. The tour hits many of the incredible, historic sights the country offers and combines those with amazing activities for the kids including: a live archaeological dig, water tunnels, a chocolate factory, river rafting, a zipline, a jeep tour, donkey riding, camel riding, diving with dolphins and of course playing on beaches of the Mediterranean, Dead and Red seas. The trip was equivalent to four, one-week vacations nicely fit and organized into 13 days.

On the comfort scale, we had a spacious, air conditioned bus with internet access, and all our lodging venues were very nice and served scrumptious breakfasts! Furthermore, our tour guide Nathalie and bus drier Moody were both tremendous!

However, I ...

Eric Glazer

We returned from our 15 day Bar Mitzvah tour and still cannot believe what a fabulous trip we enjoyed. There are many reasons why we are so positive and why we would highly recommend IBMT.

1. The responsiveness and communication from Ornan to the guide. Everyone concerned with IBMT responded to requests for information immediately and we felt that they were truly interested in us, our needs and questions. Having initially called a number of other tour groups, I can say that this is not always the case. Other groups waited days to respond to emails and calls, however, it was evident from day 1 that we were dealing with a professional and experienced organization that was interested in us and that our business was valued. This followed throughout the period prior to the trip including airline arrangements, hotel reservations and advice as to what we could do before and ...
