Tours Tailored For You and Your Group

It’s obvious that Iris and Howard love to show people India, regardless of how they get you there ... in a group formed by them, by you, or by a synagogue.

 

The best way to decide what’s right for you is to contact Iris at iburkat@burkatglobal.com or +1 914 231 9023.

 

Traveling in India is complicated. Iris and Howard are very experienced, having visited many times – they can assist with ideas, information, implementation, and general cheerleading – beginning with the planning and throughout your trip, no matter how you decide to travel.

Synagogue travel is a wonderful way to bond with others in your synagogue community. Most importantly, it is an unrivaled way of enhancing understanding of the Jewish people and their history.

​​

If your synagogue community is adventuresome (we suspect you are or you wouldn’t be reading about India), and has already traveled to destinations like Israel and Europe, talk with us about India. It was India that helped us embrace the thousands of years of connections between Israel and the Jews of the early diasporas. To get an idea about where your congregation might go, look at our India 2019 Tour on this website. We have been organizing this tour and refining it for many years.

We will work with you to design something equally exciting – with a length, itinerary, and price that fits your synagogue community and its culture.

Sometimes you just want to travel on your own, or can’t go when the group is going. Or just want to be with a few special friends or family members. We can design an itinerary, dates, and price that exactly meet your needs.

Look at our 3000 Years of Jewish India 2020 itinerary and tell us what you like most about it, what you would add or delete. India is so fascinating and varied, we can add endlessly. Although we hate to delete anything we’ll do our best to get you your wants.

 

We use the same 5-star iconic luxury hotels where available that we use for our small luxury group tour, hotels we know well and really like. Occasionally we can suggest hotels that even supersede these in luxury. It depends on the size of your budget.

We will make all arrangements for travel within India, including arranging for you to be met and transferred to hotels at each stop.

 

If you would like help with your international flights, we can suggest and put you in touch with a flight consolidator who can book flights for you, often at better rates that you would find on your own.

 

Depending on how you like to travel, we can arrange for an escort to accompany you throughout, or local guides to meet you at each new destination.

400 Years of Jewish South Africa is ready to go, created during more than 5 trips and close to a year and a half living and traveling throughout the country and Southern Africa. We have driven an estimated 35,000 kilometers to nearly all parts of the country and believe we have found some fascinating destinations in this gorgeous if sometimes difficult to understand country. (But whose isn’t?)

You will be surprised at how many of the most important industries and cities we visit were strongly influenced by Jewish settlers…If you are interested, let us know. We will get in touch when we decide on dates – probably March 2021. Still warm enough to enjoy Cape Town beaches and maybe a swim; harvest time at the wine farms.
