Making Israel accessible to older tourists
We all know about the increase in life expectancy. We also know about breakthroughs in medical care improving not only life expectancy but also the quality of life in old age. Many senior citizens worldwide are actively searching for new experiences to enrich their lives. Obviously, some modifications are needed so that older senior citizens can enjoy these experiences.
Israel as a country has done much to ensure accessibility where possible in all public amenities, buses, taxis, museums, theaters, restaurants, and places of interest to name but a few. But accessibility is not the only need of the older senior citizen if he or she wishes to enjoy a trip to Israel. Organized tours with modified itineraries are also needed, itineraries that ensure that the senior citizen will enjoy all that Israel has to offer but at the right pace, with the right amount of physical exertion, and with the necessary amenities. The group itself will be comprised of like-minded senior citizens so that each individual will feel that they have much in common with the rest of the group.
At Tzur-Tours we have devised tour itineraries which are designed to enable maximum enjoyment for the older traveler.
