Senior Journeys

We know that passing the 55 mark doesn’t mean you want to stop traveling. It just means you want to slow down and see the world. That’s why we’ve crafted senior tours that are an active, fun and well-paced way to travel with others looking for the same experience.

Richard and I wanted to let you know how amazing our recent trip to Israel was.

Personal highlights for me included swimming in the Dead Sea (and the sulfur pool at the Dead Sea resort), ...


Hi Sam,First of all, from Betsy and I, thank you so much for everything. You all did a remarkable job- thoughtful, responsive, thorough, joyful. It truly was the experience of a lifetime and would not have been without you and your team.


Our trip to Israel to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday was amazing.  Gil Travel and Susan worked with me to put together a fantastic itinerary and everything was flawless.There was so much learning, laughing and love during our 10 days.  We all can’t wait to go back and we would have Gil Travel and Susan plan our adventure again.  Thanks ...

The trip exceeded my expectations.  It was fantastic.  I loved Maier's lectures and the way Sharon took care of every need.  I loved the places we visited and really want to go back in a year or two.  Everything was great.  Please let me know if Sharon will be taking a Gil trip somewhere.  I very well might consider joining.
What a fantastic trip! I really didn’t think I was “ready” for a “senior” tour, but I was. “Senior” on this tour did not mean “old.” It meant accommodation for all participants. What a gift!
