Tova Wald / A Note from the Founder

 

Dear Traveler,

Looking back, I credit my passion for travel and my affinity for seeing the world and experiencing diverse cultures and religions to my grandmother Mazal (‘fortune’ in Hebrew), who was a great inspiration to me.

Mazal began her walk on foot in 1932 from Bukhara (Uzbekistan) to Jerusalem (Israel), together with her children, a guide and a donkey.  Upon her arrival in Palestine, she married a man who was divorced with three daughters, and together they had eight children.  I am the first granddaughter of that marriage. 

Another individual who influenced the direction of my life was a Bedouin chief by the name of Halil Abu Rabia.  He was like a father to me and taught me the wisdom and the secrets of the desert. 

Through my aunt, who had a restaurant in New York City (U.S.A), I learned that a vital ingredient for any successful business is a distinctive product with an emphasis on the delivery of the highest quality of service and the painstaking attention to detail.  These values are an integral part of my boutique travel business ethos.

Over the course of my career, I have been inspired by wonderful clientele and I am surrounded by remarkable people who share my enthusiasm for delivering outstanding travel and event experiences.  Furthermore, I consider myself extremely fortunate given the fact that after all these years, I continue to be passionate about my work and have the privilege of helping create countless lasting memories for others.

Smadar

Favorite part of travelling:

My favorite thing about traveling is to learn and know different cultures, the way of living, the colors and mostly the food. For me, through the food, we can understand a lot of the people. Food is moving and excites me and exposes me to new flavors and textures that are fascinating. I  love to travel to admire Mother Earth and the simplicity of things. In such a hectic world we have to stop and smell the roses. On every trip would organize my schedule to sit 10 minutes to see the sunset.

There are a lot of reasons I love Israel. the most amazing thing is the fact that in such a small country we have it all. In the north, the Golan Heights and the Sea of Galilee, the place I was born and raised. The Harmon, the Golan Heights, the coastal, the desert, the dead sea. We were blessed with this variety in a 7-hour drive.
