Tour to Israel

Led by Sim Dendy - Freedom Church

Tuesday 7th - Thursday 16th November 2017

They say you cannot go to Israel and come back the same person.

This tour of the Holy Land, the place where Jesus was born, lived, ministered, died and resurrected, will transform each one of us, as our understanding of the Bible comes alive.

I am honoured to be invited to host this tour of Israel and excited by the experiences we will share together; An opportunity to share firsthand the various historic and Biblical sites in a new way, a time of personal refreshment, an extended period of spiritual nourishment and a wonderful holiday in a beautiful location! Sounds ideal, doesn’t it?

I look forward to meeting you when you join me for the trip of a lifetime.

Room Check In and Check Out Times
The standard international practice is to let rooms from midday to midday. However times do vary. Check-in times are usually between 2pm and 3pm, check-out times between 11am and 12 noon on the day of departure. Therefore, if you check-in immediately after a night flight this would normally count as one night’s accommodation. Similarly if your return flight is at night you will normally be required to vacate your room at 12 noon prior to leaving for the airport. Day rooms are subject to availability/cost and should be arranged locally with the accommodation management.
