Ancient and Modern Israel Tour

Join us for a complete Israel experience as we explore the wonders of the ancient and modern Jewish state with a former U.S. diplomat.

We'll begin with briefings on the Middle East and local government in ultra-hip Tel Aviv, home to many high-tech companies and world-class restaurants and cafés. After millennia-old Jaffa, we'll go back in time to tour the Crusader Fortress in Caesarea and attend a briefing by a leading Israeli research institute.
The life of Jesus comes into focus as we spend time in the historic Galilee before visiting the Dead Sea. The tour concludes with four days in Jerusalem where we visit significant sites such as the Mount of Olives, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Garden Tomb and enjoy a traditional Sabbath dinner.

Participants will come away with a profound appreciation for the ancient and modern miracles wrought in the Holy Land.
