Holy Land Tour Trips to Israel

The Holy Land Experience Trip of a Lifetime!

15 and 21 Day Trips

Would you like to have a life-changing and never-to-be-forgotten experience? If so, it is our joy to invite you to join us on a trip of a lifetime to the Bible Lands where you will find a new dimension in understanding Christian history and the life of our Lord. We will visit places where Jesus walked, lived, taught, performed miracles, where He was crucified, and raised from the dead. We will take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee and immerse ourselves in what the disciples experienced as Jesus walked on the water and calmed the sea.

If it's Bible you want, then this trip is for you. Dr. Fink will give biblical and historical teachings at each place we visit in the Holy Land. Therefore, this trip is designed to provide an in-depth study and perspective from the Scriptures of the events and places of the Bible.

"An absolutely amazing trip with a guy who knows his Bible and can relate it to you in-country.  I've gone with this dear friend of mine to Israel twice. It's an 11 out of 10 trip!"

THIS IS A PRIVATE, CUSTOM-DESIGNED TRIP

If you want to spend more time in Israel and see more holy sites, then this trip is designed for you. Most trips to the Holy Land allow only around 7-8 full days in Israel. This severely limits what can be seen. Therefore, most who go to the Holy Land miss out on many significant holy sites as a result. These trips will have you in Israel for 11-12 (15 Day Trips) and 17-18 full days (21 Day Trips). You will, therefore, see about everything significant there is to see in Israel. 

 

Trips like these are normally is quite expensive (if you can find them). Why can we do it so inexpensively? Because we are eliminating tour companies, tour guides, etc., and are providing these services instead. We are also allowing you to book your own airfare, lodging, and some of your meals. And lastly, we are staying in nice, clean hotels/hostels instead of expensive hotels. It is our pleasure to serve you and our Lord Jesus Christ in offering you this special and affordable trip of a lifetime.

 

Because this is a custom trip, each participant will be required to book their own airfare, lodging, and purchase some of their own meals. 

 

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS

This trip is not for the weak and faint of heart! There will a fair amount of walking, some hiking, times when it could be warm (Dead Sea area), etc. Those considering this trip need to be in pretty good shape and able to withstand some discomfort at times due to heat, walking, hiking, etc. Our estimated walking distance will be about 1-2 miles a day.

 

GROUP SIZE LIMIT

We are limiting the group size to 30 people. This will allow us to be more efficient and see more places in Israel. Larger teams bring a different dynamic that slows things down and makes travel more difficult.

 

AIR TRAVEL

Each person will be responsible for booking their own air travel to Israel (to and from Ben Gurion Airport). 

 

TRANSPORTATION IN ISRAEL

We will be transported around in a large air-conditioned motorcoach while in all areas of Israel except Jerusalem. When in Jerusalem, we will be mainly walking and using other services.

 

LODGING IN ISRAEL

We will be staying at hotels with private rooms and bathrooms during our time in Israel. Many hotels in Israel are also called hostels. These hotels/hostels provide the best of both worlds. They have private rooms and bathrooms but also offer dorm-style lodging. Additionally, they have group kitchens for any meal prep if desired, community gathering areas, washing machines, etc. Our itinerary shows the hotels/hostels where we will stay (a total of three: Tel Aviv, Tiberias, Jerusalem). Please see the trip you are interested in for hotel reservation links. 

LUGGAGE

You will be allowed one carry-on piece of luggage and one suitcase. Because each person will be responsible to transport their luggage from the motorcoach to the hotels, it is highly recommended to keep your suitcase under 40 pounds. This will also prevent you from an extra charge by airlines for heavy luggage.

 

MEALS IN ISRAEL

Each person will be responsible for paying for their own lunches and dinners.

  • Breakfast - The hotels will provide breakfast and a group kitchen for meal preparation if desired. The hotel in Tiberias provides breakfast for $12.00 per person additional cost unless you include it when booking your room.

  • Lunch - Because eating out is quite expensive in Israel, and eating with a large group can occupy one or more hours of the day, plus, we will be on the go and not always close to a restaurant, each trip participant will prepare themself a daily sack lunch. Each day at noon we will take a break, eat, and then carry on. Lunch items can be purchased at local grocery stores, and the hotels will have refrigerators in the rooms.

  • Dinner – On your own. Enjoy the local culture as you eat at local restaurants, etc. Dinners can also be prepared at the hotels/hostels if desired.

 

PARK & ENTRANCE PASSES

Holy Land Site Ministries will pay for all park and entrance fees to all sites. You will be responsible to pay for any entrance fees you want to see during your free time.

 

WHAT WILL OUR VISITS TO EACH HOLY SITE BE LIKE?

Our visits will normally last around two hours. We will begin with a Bible teaching by Dr. Fink to help us understand the historical background, points of interest, Bible events that took place there, and a faith lesson. After understanding the context of the site, we will then do a walking tour to see all the points of interest. Some of the Bible teachings might be filmed for publishing on our HolyLandSite.com website.

 

DOCUMENTS

A valid U.S. Passport is required. Passports must not expire until 6 months after trip dates in Israel.

 

TRIP PREPARATION

Please utilize the videos and info on our website that provide help and orientation to better understand many of the biblical sites we will be visiting, the history of Israel, and other helpful info. In addition, we will provide helpful info leading up to our trip that will help prepare you to get the most out of your holy land experience.

 

TIME OF YEAR FOR THIS TRIP

We’ve chosen the dates in May to visit Israel because the weather is stable, the days are longer, and there are no Jewish Holidays that will interfere with our travels.

 

DAILY ITINERARY

Please take into consideration there might be slight adjustments to the schedule depending on things out of our control. Please go to the trip you are interested in to see the detailed itinerary.

 

MONEY IN ISRAEL

Credit cards and Dollars are readily accepted, Shekels can be drawn from ATM’s.

 

INTERNET IN ISRAEL

All the hotels we will be staying at will provide free Internet. Phone sim cards can be purchased for around $39.99 if you want Internet service at all times while in Israel.

 

DAILY SCHEDULE

We will leave our place of lodging each day at 7:30 am and return around 5:00–5:30 pm. From this time on, you will have free time to eat, relax, see the local sites and culture, etc. There will be restaurants close-by to our hostels where you can eat by yourself or with others in the group as desired.

AGE LIMIT

The minimum age for trip participants is 12 years old.
