    Itinerary:

    Nov. 23 & 24 - USA to the Holy Land

    Your pilgrimage begins as you depart the USA on an overnight flight. You will be welcomed at the Tel Aviv airport by our representative and transferred to your hotel to enjoy dinner before retiring for the night.

    Nov. 25 - The Galilee

    Worship as you sail across the Sea of Galilee. Visit Capernaum, center of Jesus’ ministry in the Galilee, and visit the synagogue built on the site where Jesus taught (Matthew 4:13, 23). On the Mount of Beatitudes, contemplate the “Sermon on the Mount” (Matthew 5-7). Explore the Church of the Fish and the Loaves at Tabgha, traditional site of the feeding of the 5,000 (Luke 9:10-17). See the Chapel of the Primacy, where Peter professed his devotion three times to the risen Christ (John 21). In Magdala, once home to Mary Magdalene, visit a recently discovered first-century synagogue. Recall Jesus’ baptism by John the Baptist at the Jordan River.

    Nov. 26 - Cana, Nazareth, Tel Megiddo & Caesarea

    Visit the Franciscan Wedding Chapel in Cana, site of Jesus’ first miracle, before continuing on to Nazareth, Jesus’ boyhood home (Matthew 2:23). Look out over Tel Megiddo (Armageddon) to view one of the most important archaeological sites in Israel. Today’s last stop is Caesarea, a center of the early Christians where an angel visited Cornelius, the first Gentile believer (Acts 10), and where Paul was imprisoned for two years before appealing to Caesar.

    Nov. 27 - Jericho, Qumran & Mount of Olives

    As you stop in Jericho to view the ruins of the city conquered by Joshua (Joshua 6:1, 2, 20), in the distance you can also see the traditional site of the Temptation of Jesus (Matthew 4:1-11). Continue to Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in 1947. End your day with a group picture taken from the Mount of Olives, where Jesus ascended into heaven (Acts 1:9-12).

    Nov. 28 - Jerusalem & Bethlehem

    In Bethlehem, visit the cave revered as Jesus’ birthplace and see the Church of the Nativity constructed over the site (Matthew 28-25, Luke 2:1-7). Gaze out over Shepherds’ Field before returning to Jerusalem. Pray in the Garden of Gethsemane and envision the scenes of the night before Jesus’ crucifixion (Matthew 26:36 - 44). Continue to Mount Zion to visit the House of the High Priest Caiaphas, where Jesus was questioned the night of His betrayal (Matthew 26:57). Meditate on the events of the Last Supper as you visit the traditional location of the Upper Room (Mark 14:12-26).

    Nov. 29 - Jerusalem & the Old City

    Walk the Cardo, the ancient main street of the Old City. Explore ancient Jerusalem at the Teaching Steps and the Western Wall. View the Pool of Bethesda where Jesus performed the Sabbath miracle (John 5:1-18). Sing a hymn in the Church of St. Anne and experience its rich acoustics. Visit Herod’s Antonia Fortress, where Jesus appeared before Pontius Pilate (Luke 23:1), and follow in Christ’s steps on the Via Dolorosa (“the Way of the Cross”). At the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, take time to reflect on His sacrificial love.

    Nov. 30 - Leisure Day (Masada/Dead Sea Option)

    Today you have free time to explore on your own or you may choose to visit Masada and the Dead Sea (Additional Charge). Ascend by cable car to Masada, Herod’s legendary mountaintop fortress which became the last desperate  stronghold of the Jewish Zealots against the Romans. You can still look down on the remains of the Roman camps and the siege ramp below. End your day with a dip in the salt and mineral-laden waters of the Dead Sea.

    Dec. 1 - Jerusalem

    Travel to Ein Karem, birthplace of John the Baptist and where Mary visited Elizabeth (Luke 1:26-40). Explore the poignant exhibits of Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust Memorial. Visit the Garden Tomb for a time of reflection and communion.

    Dec. 2 - Return to the USA

    Cancellation policy:

    100% of Cancellation Fees are covered by the optional Travel Protection Program, provided premium has been
    paid and reason for cancellation is coverable. Those who do not take travel protection should be aware of the
    following per-person cancellation penalties: From day of registration to 105 days prior to departure, you will be
    charged the $100 non-refundable administrative fee plus any airline fees. Additionally, thereafter, you will be
    charged any airline penalties and a single room supplement if your cancellation forces your roommate into a
    single plus the following charges: 104-60 days = $400; 59-45 days = $600; 44-31 days = 40% of total cost; 30
    days to day of departure = 100% of total cost. Submit cancellation in writing. On or after day of departure, there will
    be no refund for any services not used.


    FIT TO TRAVEL STATEMENT:
    Passengers registering for the tour accept the responsibility for being in good health and able to walk and
    travel on the tour. Because many of the sites are not accessible to the physically challenged, those needing
    oxygen, wheelchairs, or other ambulatory assistance will find the tour extremely limiting to their experiences.

    PASSPORT INFORMATION:
    Photo copies of the passport must be submitted to our office no later than 08/10/21. Failure to provide your
    passport information to our office by this date will result in change fees or denial of travel. Discrepancies in
    information or failure to check in for your tour may result in change fees, delays in receiving travel documents
    for your trip, or denial of travel. Passports must be valid for at least 6 months after the return date.

    PRICE INCREASES:
    All prices quoted in this brochure are subject to change prior to payment in full due to currency fluctuations, fuel
    surcharge increases, government taxes and fees increases or unforeseen circumstances. In addition, you may be
    subject to a price increase after payment in full has been received due to potential government imposed taxes and
    fees.

    AIRLINE ROUTES and TICKETS:
    In order to keep prices low, we do not guarantee the most direct routing to your final destination. Once “printed”,
    airline tickets cannot be changed or refunded thereafter. Air transportation to/from your destination will be economy
    class on IATA and ARC carriers utilizing APEX or SUPER APEX non-refundable, non-amendable tickets for groups
    of 10 or more flying together on entire itinerary. If you choose to depart from a different city than your group or
    travelling companion, or deviate your flight and/or trip plans, and/or you are taking a pre or post tour, you may fly on
    a different scheduled flight(s) than the rest of your group. If you make your own air arrangements, you are responsible
    for booking all needed flights for your travel unless specified otherwise. Contact your travel agent for further details.

    FLIGHT TIMES AND SEATING:
    All flights are subject to change by the airlines without advance notice. We are not responsible for such changes or delays
    and does not reimburse expenses resulting from such delays. If you are making your own flight arrangements to the departure
    city, we recommend you purchase a ticket that can be exchanged without large penalties. There is no advance seat selection
    for groups on most airlines. Early check-in is necessary to secure seats with travel companions and those with special needs.
    Due to security measures taken at airports, it is advisable to arrive at the airport three hours prior to departure time. Seating is
    solely under the control of the airlines. You will receive your flight information 60-30 days prior to departure. Final documents
    are sent approximately 2-3 weeks prior to departure.

    ADDITIONAL AIRLINE FEES:
    You will likely incur additional airline checked baggage fees that are not included in the price of the tour. These fees
    vary by airline and are at the airline’s discretion on each segment of the flight itinerary. You may also incur optional
    fees i.e. food, excess baggage, overweight baggage, items of personal nature, etc.

    DEVIATIONS AND AIR UPGRADE REQUESTS:
    Deviation and Air Upgrade requests must be submitted in writing and are subject to additional airline fees. Deviations
    and Air Upgrades are not always possible given the group schedule and time of ticketing. Passengers who are
    ticketed with air deviations and/or upgrades will likely not fly with the group and will therefore need to provide their
    own transfers.

    ITINERARY CHANGES:
    Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this brochure. While you will see all sites listed in this
    brochure, the order of sites and/or days and number of days may be altered to accommodate changes in airline, hotel
    schedules, and local conditions. Due to airline schedules, some participants may receive one or two extra leisure
    days at a nominal per day charge and some extensions may not be available on all departure dates. If itinerary
    changes necessitate extra overnights, you will be charged $125 per night; single rooms $175 per night. Meals for
    extra nights are not included.
