An exciting and faith-boosting tour to ISRAEL

Led by Nick Gray

Monday 16th - Wednesday 25th March 2020

Israel - the only country where your Bible is a travel guide! Walk in the footsteps of Abraham, David, Jesus and the apostles in Jerusalem and Judea. Visit the beautiful Galilee of Jesus at the best time of year, when the fields are green and the flowers glorious. Understand the link between God’s Word and today’s conflict. You will return from Israel impacted by God in a new way and reading your Bible with fresh understanding and excitement.

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.
