About Us

TAO Business Tours from China Ltd. was founded in 2008 by Eyal Bener, a licensed Chinese speaking tour guide, in order to provide a comprehensive solution for Chinese delegations visiting Israel.

Over the past decade, Israel and China has intensively deepened their relations in a variety of aspects including tourism, culture, investments and trade, high-tech, agriculture and more. Now days there are numerous cooperations between China and Israel and the numbers keep growing each year.

TAO Company has become well known for its excellency and punctuality, providing custom-made tourism and professional business services to hundreds of groups from China, both pure tourism groups and professional delegations in various fields. TAO is a full member of the Israeli incoming tour operators association, and listed as a licensed tour agency in the China National Tourism Administration.

Why choose us?

Focus: TAO is the first ever tour agency in Israel that focuses on the Chinese market only. Actually, we do not know any other market! This means that we have a vast knowledge of the specific needs and special requests of the Chinese groups.

Experience: Over the last decade we have dealt with hundreds of Chinese groups from different types of clients. As a result, we know exactly which hotels, which restaurants and attractions and even which specific tour guide to assign to any kind of group in order for the visit will turn out as good as it gets.

One Stop Shop: For business-oriented delegations, why split your efforts with 2 or more companies? We can provide to you both tourism and business services in the same package, together with professional translation if needed, making our deal much more worthy and hard to beat.

Flexibility: Unlike traditional tour companies, we almost never use the same program twice! Understanding the Chinese market, we know that each group has its own special interests and demands, therefore we build custom-made tour schedule or professional program for each group to fit the clients’ specific needs.

Staff: TAO office staff is highly trained, long-year qualified, and well experienced in working with Chinese private companies, tour agencies, universities and government institutions. Plus, we can communicate directly in Chinese with you.

We provide personal, courteous and professional services with the highest standards while paying attention to our clients’ special needs.
