Jerusalem:  A Biblical Journey

Jerusalem is the holiest city in the world – holy for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. The Old City of Jerusalem is home to the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Tel Aviv is THE coolest city in the Mediterranean with its 24 hours of culture, events, nightlife, and beaches. The Dead Sea is not only the lowest place on Earth, but is also unique in that you can’t actually swim in it. The salty waters mean that you just float.

Israel is safe! You are much safer in Israel than in most Western Countries (including the USA), and day-to-day life is very Westernized. Israel is unique, why not come and see it for yourself?

We take care of everything, except your PASSPORT. These prices are based on 2021 rates, however, once you've secured your reservation, your price will NOT change.
