Our tours are all educationally positioned, with a strong emphasis on Christian growth and spiritual formation from a Kingdom perspective. We spend over 90% of our trip focusing directly on biblical based data within the field of biblical history and geography.
We keep our prices low because we utilize modest accommodators. If you’re looking for the stereotypical vacation trip, we are not the company for you. Our choice of business partners understands that we promote an instructive tour experience, focusing on Christian principles. Thus, most of our Israel tourism connections are local, Christian-operated, and family businesses that emphasize Middle Eastern Christian hospitality.
Our desire is that your visit be a genuine life-changing experience, where you will walk away echoing the Psalmist, "Lord, I have loved the habitation of your house, and the place where your glory dwells" (Psalm 26:8).
For most tour companies, costs vary based upon different variables. For example, a tour package that doesn’t need airfare will cost less then a package that does need airfare. The costs of a day guide who walks around the Old City of Jerusalem will be less than a day guide that employs transportation to Masada. The list of variables can go on and on. Plus, some people enjoy renting cars, planning itineraries, reserving hotels, and choosing where they want to eat. While for others, the tasks of overseas planning can be very stressful. We factored in the uniqueness of our trips with that of the numerous possibilities of variable combinations. Then we decided to narrow our focus and options into two categories.
We created a Physical Explorations Tour, and then for those just needing a little extra guidance we also developed a Basic Day Tour (with some amendable options).
All of our Physical Exploration Tours are arranged categorically. Sites are hand-selected based on proximity, allotted time needed to explore, overall connection to major regions and/or themes, and the local conditions of the country. We do our best to present the entire scope of Biblical Israel in just a short amount of time.
Our Basic Day Tours can typically follow the same patterns of the Physical Exploration Tours. However, we also understand that some folks already have an idea of what they want to see, so we added some flexibility. If you have a custom itinerary or list of sites that you would like to see, we are more than willing to customize your Basic Day Tour, in order to give you the best possible trip to Israel.
Basic Day Tour
BASIC DAY TOURS
Do you have transportation, lodging, and an itinerary? Do you just need a tour guide for the day? If so, our Basic Day Tour will get you a guide between the hours of 8:30am and 3:00pm (6.5 hours). We’ll meet you near Jaffa Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem, and from there your journey awaits.
The Basic Day Tour fees must be paid at least a week prior to your request date. If you’d like to reserve a day guide, you may do so by filling out the form on our Contact page.
The Basic Day Tour price does not cover entrance into sites.
PHYSICAL EXPLORATIONS TOURS
Our Physical Explorations Tour offers pilgrims a broad study of the land of Israel. Outside of a Regional Tour (by request only), the Physical Explorations Tour bids our most comprehensive physical study of the land. At the same time, it’s like trying to eat a full-course meal on the edge of a spoon. There’s so much to see and understand in such a short amount of time.
The price of the Physical Explorations Tour includes: nine days of touring (and one Sabbath days' rest), lodging, food (breakfast, lunch, dinner), transportation, entrance to biblical sites, and tour materials. Price does not include airfare.
