Arrival at Ben Gurion Airport and transfer to a guest house in the Sea of Galilee region.

Your first morning in the Holy Land will be spent touring the Galilee area.  Sites of interest will include the Mt of Beatitudes for prayer, Mt of Transfiguration, scenic observation of the Jezreel Valley, and other biblically significant sites.  After enjoying a traditional Middle Eastern lunch, you will go to the Jordan River for a baptism opportunity.  The afternoon ends with a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee.  Optional experiences include dinner on the boat or a tour and shopping opportunity at the Diamond Factory.

On your way to Nazareth for lunch and tour at the Nazareth Historic Village, you will have the opportunity to spend time at Mt Premice where Jesus read from the book of Isaiah and confirmed its prophecy. After lunch, you will travel to the ancient port city of Jaffa. On the way, you have the option of choosing a tour at Armageddon or Zippori National Park. Your day will end in Jerusalem.

Make sure you have good walking shoes for today’s adventure!  Experience the breathtaking panoramic view of Jerusalem and the Mt of Olives.  The morning’s tour includes the Ascension place of Christ, and Pater Noster where the Lord’s Prayer was taught, Dominus Flevit where Jesus described the destruction of the temple, the Garden of Gethsemane, and Virgin Mary’s tomb.  A traditional lunch is hosted in Old City Jerusalem. The afternoon begins walking down the Via Dolorosa and ending at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, death, and resurrection. The Light Show at the David Citadel is an optional evening activity.

Begin your day with a tour of the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque (additional fee) or at St Peter in Gallicantu, the site where Peter denied Christ.  After your chosen tour, you will depart for Jericho through the Judean Desert, stopping to observe the St. George Monastery.  Upon your arrival in Jericho, you will visit the ancient and beautiful Islamic Hisham Palace.  Lunch will be hosted overlooking Jericho and the Mt of Temptation.  The afternoon is spent enjoying the Dead Sea.  Shopping opportunities are available.

Grab your walking shoes again today! Spend the day exploring Old City Jerusalem. Beginning at the historic Jaffa Gate, you will visit the Cardo, Broad Wall, and Jewish Quarter. A time of reflection and prayer is available at the Western Wall. Then a walking tour of the Western Wall Tunnels will deliver you to your lunch location where you will enjoy a traditional lunch. The afternoon is designated as free time in the Old City. However, there is an optional tour to the Garden Tomb available. An optional evening activity includes a short night tour of the Old City and dinner at the Jerusalem Jewel rooftop venue. This dining experience is indeed the Jewel of your trip as a breathtaking, unobstructed 360-degree view of Jerusalem and surrounding area is paired with a traditionally prepared Arab dinner. Please note, there is an additional charge for this night tour.

A lovely drive south into the Negev Desert will bring you to Beer Sheva, the site of Abraham’s Well and covenant.  After enjoying a traditional Bedouin lunch, the afternoon is spent in Hebron where you will visit Abraham’s tomb and have the opportunity to purchase handmade items in the Old City.

You get to choose your own adventure today!  Morning tour choices include visiting the Israel Museum, the Holocaust Museum, or Ein Karem.  After this, you will head to the Nativity Church in Bethlehem and enjoy a traditional lunch before returning to Jerusalem.  Your afternoon is unscheduled, free time.  Shopping opportunities are available.
