A wonderful tour to Israel

Led by Sim Dendy

Tuesday 4th - Thursday 13th March 2025

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.

The standard international practice is to let rooms from midday to midday. However times do vary.

Day rooms are subject to availability/cost and should be arranged locally with the accommodation management.

“Just a note to report that the trip to Jordan went very well. We all arrived home safely yesterday morning.

The group gelled together well and we all thoroughly enjoyed the itinerary and magnificent scenery. Everyone was surprised to realise how much Bible history had taken place there.”
