Israel Tours

Now scheduling Israel land tours for 2025 and 2026. The ongoing conflict in Israel has caused a temporary pause in land tours. However, groups are currently rescheduling and planning tours for 2025 and 2026. Our friends in Israel are looking forward to groups returning as it is a great support to Israel.

The itinerary here is a sample of an Israel land tour that your group may experience. We customize your itinerary according to the length of your group tour.

Optional extensions to Petra, Jordan, including Mt. Nebo are available. The Bible will come alive as your group experiences the places where Jesus walked and taught his disciples. The Holy Land is where history and prophecy unite.
