Security Solutions International SSI tm enters the Extreme Travel Industry.
The company that trains US Homeland Security in Israel is now entering the private-sector experiential travel market.
With a burgeoning demand for alternative travel experience, and young and young-at-heart travelers seeking out specialty tours and travel, SSI, the homeland security training leaders, will now be offering members of the public their prestige and specialized training for the purpose of exploring and visiting one of the most fascinating of destinations – Israel.
For the first time, a reasonably fit person can visit the Old City of Jerusalem and, as part of the same trip, make a journey to Israel’s Northern Border to learn about security in that sector, while visiting observation points and staring at Hezbollah on the other side of the border. In addition, such travelers will do fun things like zip lining and learning the Israeli martial art of Krav-Maga, before returning to the US with the confidence that they have been trained by the very best.
“We believe that there are many people who would like to learn night survival while they visit Nazareth and other fascinating sites in Israel,” says Henry Morgenstern of SSI. “As all our Homeland Security professional groups have found, visiting Israel is unlike any other experience – and, because the Israelis are so good at what they do, it is also one of the safest international destinations. Women traveling alone, older people, young people ‒all find it extremely safe. The biggest danger may be the Tel Aviv night life, which is the most 'happening' in all of Europe and has been known to cause hangovers. If you don’t believe me, listen to what Claire Danes had to say on Conan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfYcoSS7JIs, namely: “Israel is the most intense party town I have ever been to."
