Four leading actors from the hit shows CSI:NY and CSI:Miami are touring Israel as guests of the Tourism Ministry. 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. This is the first time all four actors have visited Israel.
Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov commented that 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.”
The minister believes that millions of people who follow the activities of these stars on social media platforms and via traditional media, would be inspired to call their travel agents and book their next vacation in the Holy Land.
“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,” Minister Misezhnikov stated.
