Given to the Israelites by God himself, the Holy Land of Israel is the cradle of the world's three monotheistic religions - Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and today holds the same religious significance it did centuries ago. Known as both the 'promised land' and the 'holy land', Israel is littered with historic towns and cities mentioned in all of the holy books from the Hebrew Bible to the Qur'an that now serve as important pilgrimage sites. Visit the Holy Land on one of our group tours or tailor-make a tour of the Holy Land if you'd prefer to make your own private pilgrimage to this inspirational region.
Our Holy Land group tours in Israel offer you the chance to soak up Israel's principal sites and discover for yourself just what makes the country so holy. Wander around World Heritage Listed cities, enjoy panoramic views from holy mountains, follow in the fated footsteps of the Son of God and visit the sites where miracles happened.
As the assumed place of Jesus' ministry and one of the oldest cities in the world, Jerusalem holds particular significance and its ancient walls, mosques and churches will inspire even the least spiritual of people. South of Jerusalem there's Bethlehem, birthplace of Jesus and known by practically every child that's ever appeared in a nativity school play. Head north and you'll find Nazareth, Jesus' childhood home, and further still the region of Galilee, rich in holy heritage and miracle sites from the town of Cana to Tiberias, Beit She'an to Capernaum.
The region's holy sites extend beyond Israel so why not consider exploring Jordan alongside Israel? Visit Mt. Nebo where Moses first viewed the Promised Land, delve into the Crusadar history of Karak Castle or marvel at the Byzantine church mosaics of Madaba. All this and more can be done on our 11 day Road to Jerusalem tour. Or why not extend your sights even further and combine Israel and Jordan with Egypt on our Pyramids Petra Promised Lands 18 day tour, not only taking in the famed ancient Egyptian sites but also St. Catherine's Monastery on biblical Mount Sinai. In Jordan we also offer a Jerusalem & Beyond 4 day bolt-on which can be combined with many of our group tours.
