While this tour is contingent upon COVID-19 developments, you may register with a $400 deposit by November 1, 2020 and we will hold your spot.

All of our tours offer serious Biblical study engaging with history, culture, geography, and language. Locations include archaeological sites, modern local sites, hiking trails, and museums. These tours are authentic experiences that engage with the ancient stones of 2000 years ago along with the living stones (the people) of Israel today, the food, and the culture.
We have crafted the pricing of our tours to be "all-inclusive," which means that your cost covers everything you need: food (three meals a day), hotels, transportation, tips, fees, and water. For more extensive information, please visit our Preparation page.
