A visit to the Holy land over 9 days will always be a challenge. We have carefully chosen the sites and itinerary which will enable us to truly walk in the footsteps of Jesus and will visit those places and sites with biblical authenticity. This will mean we don't visit so many churches or classically religious sites. Previous experience has shown us that this is more helpful.
Some of the sites are rural but all have easy access by coach and have good facilities available.
We plan on relatively early starts (around 8am for breakfast) and finish early afternoon to give time for relaxation or an evening gathering.
There are some optional elements where people can choose an easier option. Examples are Hezekiah's Tunnels and Walking the Walls of Jerusalem.
If you are travelling alone then you can be assured of a warm welcome, good fellowship and and sense of belonging. The size of the group is limited to no more than 34 people and we ensure that everyone feels included. We eat at the same times in the hotels and encourage people to sit with new people during these times.
We normally gather in the hotel bar before meals for a drink and chat.
It is possible to have single occupancy of a room but there is a supplement involved with this.
Twin rooms are available so we encourage people to be prepared to share and suggest inviting a friend to accompany them.
It may be possible to share with someone else you don't know who would like to come but this is not guaranteed.
