The group, which includes actors Jonathan Frederick Togo and Omar Benson Miller (stars of CSI: Miami) and Carmine Giovinazzo and AJ Buckley (stars of CSI: NY), will visit Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea and Masada and the Galilee, among other tourism destinations. The week-long tour represents the first time these actors have visited Israel.
Speaking about the star studded visit, Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov said: “Over the last year, the Tourism Ministry has increased its hosting of celebrities and opinion-formers with the objective of exposing Israel’s tourism product and increasing incoming tourism.
"Millions of people follow the activities of these leaders on the various social media platforms and via traditional media.
"Today, the state of Israel is reaping the benefits of the intensive marketing activities carried out by the Tourism Ministry with the all-time record high in incoming tourism that is expected to bring 3.8 million tourists by year end.
"The ministry will continue these international marketing activities across the year, while highlighting the tourism experience and the varied tourism product that Israel has to offer.”
