Jerusalem - Israel
In the footsteps of Jesus
Israel needs no introduction. However, the way in which you visit can make all the difference. Our small groups, individually guided from place to place, is the key to absolutely loving Jerusalem.
From Moses Mount, to Peter’s place of Testimony, this tour will take you to all of what the Holy Land has to offer. It may very well encompass the most sacred places on earth. You will not forget it!
You will experience the thrill of standing upon some of the Holiest Mountains in Israel.
You will see the Landscapes that Jesus saw, many unchanged for 2000 years. You will enjoy sailing on the Sea of Galilee as the ancient Apostles did. You will never forget the desert, the heights and depths of elevation and understanding that come with walking where Jesus walked. Jerusalem, the Golden City, one of the greatest cities in the world.
You will love the sights, sounds and smells of this ancient walled city. You will have for yourself a context to the most sacred writings in the old world. This will change your understanding of the Life of Jesus forever.
If desired, we can arrange an excursion south into Egypt, where you will ride a camel atop the Mount of Moses, even the great Mount Sinai. To stand where Moses stood, and to see where the Lord brought the children is Israel is an amazing thing to behold. You will never forget it!
