ABOUT DEKEL TOURS
Dekel Tours is more than a tour company. We’re a family.
Dekel Tours is a young and vibrant company that understands that today’s world travelers are looking for highly personalized travel experiences built around their unique tastes and preferences. With the proliferation of online travel guides and resources, our guests want to know that the professionals handling their trips are regional specialists who can provide expert insight beyond what’s available online. Not less importantly, today’s savvy travelers are also seeking travel specialists who understand where they’re coming from and the level of service they’re expecting.
Our friendly, North American-born (and one Brit!) Tour Specialists understand what incoming tourists expect from a travel agency, and that allows us to get straight to the work of custom-building amazing tour packages for our clients. As a family-style company, we take the time to get to know the people behind the tours. We believe that every guest is different, and, therefore, every tour ought to be different. We know we could probably save time and money by cutting corners and providing cookie-cutter trips, but that’s not our style. We know that visiting Israel can and should be an amazing, life-changing experience for everyone who comes, and because the possibilities are endless, every tour deserves the time and effort required to create that amazing experience.

Owner & CEO
Bradley founded Dekel Tours in 2014 with a vision to create a personal travel concierge service for those looking to travel to Israel. Eight years later, his successful boutique tour operations allow him to share his love and passion for the country with Dekel Tours clients from all over the world.
Bradley was born and raised in Southern California, where he spent most of his teen years involved in his local synagogue, NFTY, and other Jewish youth group activities. After a gap year in Israel during which he studied religious studies and modern-day Israel, he returned to the States to study Hotel Management and Hospitality at UNLV. During his time in Las Vegas, Bradley remained active in the local Jewish community, teaching Jewish Music and religious school and being an active participant at UNLV Hillel. After finishing his studies, he decided it was time to come back to Israel for good.
When he’s not busy exploring and sharing Israel with his guests, Brad spends time with his growing family and working on his golf game.
