Is Israel Safe?

frequently asked questions

A question I’m asked a lot from my clients sometimes is Israel safe to travel? Sadly Israel is suffering from negative coverage on the media and usually mentioned when violence breaks out. but most of the time this is not the case. You will be surprised but yes! Israel is one of the safest countries on the face of the planet currently to 2019.

Is Israel Safe? Let’s Go Over The Figures!

Public safety in Israel is one of the highest in the world with a very low crime rate. In fact. the crime level in the U.S is double that the one in Israel. I guess that not such a surprise, taking into account that for every 100 Americans, 88 of them are armed. But seriously, with all the wars, various confrontations Israel has had with the Palestinian Authority, fewer Israelis died per capita than in the U.S. Drug abuse is extremely low in Israel compared with the one in the U.S. All this information presented here is easily verified on the web. So Don’t hesitate to come, but please follow your government travel warning from time to time.


Is All Of Israel Safe?

So again you will be surprised but yes! The Cities like Jerusalem like the rest of Israel are a safe place to visit. with that said, I would stay away from areas that are known to have some friction with the Palestinians like communities next to the Gaza Strip or areas in the Westbank that are near Palestinian communities. With a private tour guide in Israel it always safer since he knows his way around.

So Is Israel good to travel to?! My answer is an absolute yes. Come and tour Israel and you’ll find out how safe it is! I promise you! Besides, you have a private tour guide with you, so no worries right?!
