TOUR OVERVIEW:

Covid vaccinations are not required for this trip.


Explore the Holy Land of Israel on a unique Bible study tour with teaching by Pastor Bryan Hughes of Grace Bible Church and Pastor Jim Harris of Heritage Bible Church!


Our 11-day Christian Biblical tour of Israel includes the very best Old and New Testament sites!

The tour starts at $3,899 per person based on two people sharing a room (or you can obtain a single room by yourself, or we can match you with a roommate). Our hotels include a seaside stay on the Sea of Galilee and a hotel near the impressive Jaffa Gate of Jerusalem! You will have a fun stay at the Dead Sea with time for a float, and have the ability to visit Masada, Qumran, see the Road to Damascus in Syria, the Golan Heights and so much Old Testament significance. At the same time, we are driving through this history in the Galilee and Golan Heights and areas of the North – you will be astonished to know that Jesus walked from synagogue to synagogue along much of the same route, casting out demons, healing the sick and performing so many miracles that are spelled out in the Gospels!

Not only will you visit the celebrated traditional sites of the Galilee, Jerusalem, and Nazareth, but you will also visit the Temple Mount, the newly discovered Pilgrim’s Path – an underground route that connects the City of David to the Temple Mount, Hezekiah’s Tunnel, the Pool of Siloam and so much more!
