A Wonderful Tour to the Holy Land

Led by Rev Peter Whatton

Monday 17th - Tuesday 25th October 2022

Dear Friends in Christ, please join me and a wonderful group of Christians on a journey of a life time. I have been leading Pilgrimages to the Holy Land and other places of interest for over 20 years. Not only that but I have been very privileged to work at the beautiful Garden Tomb Holy Site in East Jerusalem.

There have been many exciting experiences leading tours over the years, exploring the biblical sites of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Nazareth and walking where Jesus really did walk, along the shores of Lake Galilee. Pilgrims became wide-eyed with wonder as they saw the bible come alive, shared fellowship together and became spiritually refreshed.

I invite you again to join with me and imbibe the unique atmosphere of the Holy Land. I know you will enjoy it and have wonderful stories to tell to your church family and other friends and relatives.

God bless you, Rev. Peter Whatton

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.
