Your Holiday Itinerary

8-Day Tour

  • Day 1 – Fly from Heathrow, Luton or Manchester to Tel Aviv where you will be met and transferred to your hotel on the Mediterranean sea. D* 
  • Day 2 – Caesarea, Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee - We visit Caesarea, seeing the Roman Theatre; walk beside the harbour from which Paul sailed to Rome and see the impressive aqueduct, built by Herod the Great. Next, we ascend to Muhraka, on Mount Carmel. We stop at lunch-time at the Druze village of Daliyat El-Carmel, and in the afternoon we visit Megiddo. Travelling onwards, we visit Nazareth, where Jesus spent his childhood, and drive by Cana of Galilee, then Mount Arbel for an exciting view of the enchanting Sea of Galilee. We stay for two nights near Tiberias. B,D
  • Day 3 – Galilee and the Golan Heights - We visit Capernaeum, the home of St. Peter and site of an ancient Jewish Synagogue, Tabgha, where we remember the miracle of the ‘Feeding of the 5000’ that Jesus performed in the area. We continue with a visit to Mount Beatitudes, one possible site of the Sermon on the Mount. During the day, we take a boat trip on the Sea of Galilee and we also visit Banias (Caesarea Philippi), where St. Peter confessed Jesus's divinity. B,D
  • Day 4 – Jordan Valley to Jerusalem - Visit the Baptismal site at Yardenit then travel south towards Jerusalem. En route we call at Beit Shean, where we will walk the ancient streets and see the Roman period bath-houses, amphitheatre, market and temples. We continue down the Jordan Valley with a view of Jericho, one of the most ancient cities in the world. Arrive Jerusalem for a four-night stay.  B,D
  • Day 5 – Jerusalem, the Old City - We begin our day with a magnificent view from the top of the Mount of Olives. We see the Chapel where ‘the Lord wept’, then proceed to the beautiful Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed the night before He died. We see Stephen’s Gate, the only gate that opens to the east of the city, then visit the Western or ‘Wailing’ Wall, the holiest of holy places in Israel, which attracts thousands of worshippers daily and the Pool of Bethesda. We see the Ecce Homo Arch, where Pontius Pilate identified Jesus to the crowd, and finally walk the Via Dolorosa – the Stations of the Cross. B,D
  • Day 6 – The Dead Sea and Masada - We begin at Qumran, where the first Dead Sea Scrolls were found in 1947. A ‘float’ in the Dead Sea, located at the lowest place in the world on dry land (1385 feet below normal sea level) is an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience, then visit the oasis of Ein Gedi. A cable-car will take us up to King Herod’s magnificent fortress where the rebels made their last dramatic stand against Rome in 73 AD. B,D 
  • Day 7 – Jerusalem, the New City - We begin our last day in Jerusalem with a visit to the new Museum of the Holocaust at Yad Vashem, then the Israel Museum, to view the Dead Sea Scrolls and a model of Ancient Jerusalem as it appeared at the time. We end with a visit to the Garden Tomb, believed by many to be the location where Christ was laid after his crucifixion. B,D
  • Day 8 – In the morning, we include a short visit to the ancient port of Jaffa, where St. Peter raised Tabitha from the dead, then transfer back to Tel Aviv for our return flight to the U.K. B
