"Wendy, thank you for an experience of a lifetime! While I have been on many tours around the world, this is my first time I've traveled with someone (and I don't know that there are any others) that does it simply for the passion (not as a job)! It is evident every step of the way. Your thoughtfulness and attention to detail began even before we departed! I didn't really know what to expect when visiting Israel but I felt that your trip was the one for me. In addition to the fantastic itinerary, your special surprise visits and events made it truly incredible! Your passion is contagious and your caring is over and beyond! You and Harrison make a wonderful team - highly organized, knowledgeable, funny, caring and kind! Thank you for giving me an experience of a lifetime! I hope to join you again one day! Carol G. - MD

The 5 Senses Tour was created specifically for women of all religions, to truly experience Israel. While we experience the important religious and historical sights and wonders of this country, we also learn about the life and people behind this passionate land. Our small group travels from the northern borders of the country to as far south as the Dead Sea. We experience the religions, cultures, lives and pursuits that make up the diverse tapestry called Israel. Likewise, we also learn from one another. While we travel together on the 5 Senses Tour, we share and celebrate our own diversity - creating a very rich perspective and an added level of interest and growing amongst ourselves. Whether you've been to Israel before or not, I promise you will be greeted with new surprises and experiences - the itinerary is just the beginning!
Our ladies come alone, with friends or family!
Arriving with one thing in common ...
to experience Israel!
Departing with many things in common ...
new friendships and special memories!
Get to Know your Leaders:
Wendy Yaniv: Founder 5 Senses Tour / Group Leader:
"My passion for Israel runs deep. Sharing it with others is my greatest joy!"
I guess I qualify as a native Atlantan (although I don't really "feel" Southern!), having lived here for more than 30 years! My "real job" is as a Realtor, I am married to an Israeli and I am the proud mom of 3, wonderful, young men! My first visit to Israel was at the age of 16 and I fell in love with the country and the people ... and have remained "in-love" every since! Over the years, I worked as a Group Leader in Israel for teens, spend a semester studying at Tel Aviv U and moved there for a period of time after college. Until today, Israel holds a very special place in my heart and is truly my home-away-from-home. It is my goal to give each woman that travels with us a unique experience - to engage all of your senses and to have you feel the wonderful history, passion, struggles and successes of Israel and it's people.
Having the opportunity to create these tours and share this special country with others is not only my dream, but a true honor!
Harrison Cohen: Tour Leader
So… you’re wondering, “Why did I choose a male tour guide for a woman’s tour? Good question! Harrison has been a tour guide for over 20 years and is one of Israel's most well-respected, sought-after guides. His in-depth of knowledge of the 3 major religions was especially important to me for our "multi-denominational" group. We have tried many times to play "stump the tour guide" ... to no avail!
If the truth be told, in addition to the fact that he satisfied my very strict guidelines for choosing a guide, Harrison and I have also been friends for many, many years (that means a number too big to want to count the years!). However, this history enables us to work very much in tandem in order to achieve the personalized feel of this trip.
Just for the record ... not one complaint yet from him about being the guide for an all-women's tour! We do our best to make him (and our driver) feel welcome!
