The Holy Land Experience!

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. Dr. Fink will give Bible 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. This is a private, customized trip with a limit of 30-35 people.

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 7-9 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. This trip will have you in Israel for almost 13 full days. You will, therefore, see about everything significant there is to see in Israel. We will traverse from the uttermost northern part of Israel to the uttermost southern part, or as the Bible would say, “From Dan to Beersheba.”

 

A 15-day trip like this normally is quite expensive (if you can find one). 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 hostels instead of 4-Star 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 be a lot 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.

 

GROUP SIZE LIMIT

We are limiting the group size to 30-35 people. This will allow us to be more efficient and see more places in Israel. Larger teams bring a different dynamic that slow things down and make travel more difficult.

 

AIR TRAVEL

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

 

TRANSPORTATION IN ISRAEL

We will be transported around in a large air-conditioned motor coach while in all areas of Israel except Jerusalem. When in Jerusalem, we will be walking.

 

LODGING IN ISRAEL

We will be staying at hostels with private rooms during our time in Israel. They will have group kitchens for any meal prep if desired, community gathering areas, wash machines, etc. Our itinerary shows the hostels where we will stay (a total of three, Tel Aviv, Tiberias, Jerusalem). We will tell you which hostels to book at and will make arrangements with the hostels, so they know you are with Holy Land Site Ministries tour group.

 

MEALS IN ISRAEL

Each person will be responsible for paying for their own lunches and dinners and possibly, a few breakfasts.

  • Breakfast - The hostels in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem will provide breakfast and a group kitchen for meal preparation if desired. The hostel in Tiberias provides breakfast for $6.00–$7.00 per person additional cost.

  • 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 hostels will have refrigerators in the rooms.

  • Dinner – On your own. Enjoy the local culture as you eat at local restaurants, etc.

 

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.

 

BIBLE TEACHINGS AT THE HOLY SITES

Holy Land Site Ministries tour leader, Todd (Mike) Fink, will provide Bible & historical teachings throughout our time in the Holy Land. Some of these 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 take a look at our website here that has a lot of info about many of the biblical sites we will be visiting, the history of Israel, and other helpful info. Please use it to better prepare yourself. In addition, we will provide helpful info to help prepare you to get the most out of your holy land experience.

 

TIME OF YEAR WE’RE PLANNING THESE TRIPS

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. Additionally, if the team would like some flexibility in seeing sights, we are happy to make adjustments as desired.

 

MONEY IN ISRAEL

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

 

INTERNET IN ISRAEL

All of the hostels 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.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE   OCTOBER 30, 2020

Trip registration deadline is October 30, 2020. Tourism is growing quite rapidly in Israel and things need to be done earlier than in previous years. Therefore, booking lodging, bus transportation in Israel, etc. needs to be done no later than 6 months before trip departure to assure availability. Additionally, airfare and other details are best done earlier rather than later. For these reasons, we have set October 30, 2020, as the deadline for trip registration. Thank you for your understanding.

REGISTRATION & PAYMENTS

A deposit of $500 is required to register and confirm your spot. Before paying your deposit, please fill out our online registration form. We will then notify you of your acceptance into the group tour, and payment of your deposit can then be made. Registration deadline – October 30, 2020. For registration or more info, please visit: HolyLandSite.com 

The remaining balance of the Holy Land Site Ministries trip fee is due on or before October 30, 2020.

CANCELLATIONS

In the case of cancellations 6 months before trip departure, we will happily refund all but $250 USD of your payments. If cancellation is after 6 months before trip departure, we will be unable to refund any of your payments due to commitments and expenses already incurred. Please visit our website for registration form and payments: HolyLandSite.com 

WHEN TO BOOK AIRFARE & LODGING

Please do not book any flights or lodging until you receive tour trip confirmation by Holy Land Site Ministries that there are enough people in the group to be able to go.
