The private tours industry is booming.
The number of private tour operators is now up to 4,000, up from just two years ago, according to the Israeli Association for Private Tours (IAPT), which is in the process of setting up its own industry.
While private tours in general have been in a free fall for years, the rise of the private tour industry has made it all the more important to make sure the industry remains viable.
Private tours are more expensive, but also more accessible.
A private tour in Israel costs roughly $30,000 (about $38,000 in the United States) for the entire tour, with a fee of $150 (about £115) if you want to do the whole thing at one time.
Tour operators also have an advantage over other travel agents: You can make reservations, get a list of hosts, pick the dates and get all the details on the website.
With a private tour, you are responsible for the safety of the guests, not the operator.
The average price for a private trip is $3,000 per person, while the average rate for a group tour in New York City is $20,000.
“You can choose the time of your visit, the location, the tour schedule, what time of the day it’s going to be,” said IAPT chairman Andras Kachs.
“The best part is that the operator has control over your itinerary and your hotel.
It’s also not like you have to worry about anything like a hotel room.
You can use your own bed or a car seat.
And you don’t have to take the luggage, which is really important.
You don’t want to have to get the baggage out of the car.”
Kachs said that while the private tours are very popular, the industry has a long way to go.
For example, the private touring industry in New Jersey, which has the second-highest number of people on private tours per capita, only has about 1,500 operators.
In the United Kingdom, there are more than 100 private tour companies operating.
And in Israel, there’s a growing number of companies that are focused on private tour operations, but don’t necessarily have a large presence in the country, said IapT chairman Shaul Levy.
When asked about his company’s future, Levy said, “I am not in a position to say right now, but it is an interesting time for the industry.”
And when I asked about how the industry will grow over the next 10 years, Levy was cautious, saying, “The number of operators is growing every year.
We’re in a great position.
I am not aware of any major challenges.”
The private tours business in Israel is growing.
IAPTs membership is growing, with more than 20,000 members now, including about 3,000 on private private tours.
While IAPTs have no specific plans for growth, it does seem that there are plans for the future, with the IAPTT even working on a national initiative to create a network of private tours operators.
