DAY 2 - Thursday, Tel Aviv / Casesarea by the Sea / Tiberias
After arriving in Tel Aviv, we will clear customs and immigration formalities and board our modern, air-conditioned, luxury motor coach.

During our scenic, two-hour drive to Tiberias/Galilee, we will have a beautiful stop along the way at Caesarea by the Sea (Acts 10&25). Our first of many delicious, buffet meals will be served upon arrival. Dinner and overnight in Tiberias.
DAY 3 - Friday, Sea of Galilee Boat Ride / Capernaum / Caesarea Philippi / Tel Dan / Golan Heights
We start this morning with a cruise on the Sea of Galilee. We will arrive at a place that Christ knew well – Capernaum. In Capernaum are the remains of what is believed to be Peter’s House. This is the region where Christ spent much of His early ministry (Matthew 4: 13). Next, we will see Caesarea Philippi, where Jesus and His disciples went for peace and quiet (Mark 8:27). We will then proceed to Tel Dan, the northernmost city of ancient Israel Qudges 18:29). On our return to the hotel, we will pass through the Golan Heights.
Dinner and overnight in Tiberias.
DAY 4 - Saturday, Nazareth / Megiddo / Mt. Carmel / Baptismal Service
We depart Tiberias this morning and the first stop is Nazareth, the city where Jesus would have grown up as a child (Luke 1 & 2). From there, we head to Megiddo, an ancient city of King Solomon and the site of the future battle of Armageddon (I Kings 9: 15; Rev. 16: 16). Our next stop is Mount Carmel, remembered as the place where Elijah called down fire from Heaven upon the prophets of Baal. (2 Kings 1: 12) Our touring day will end at the Jordan River for an evening Baptismal Service,
Dinner and final overnight in Tiberias.
DAY 5 - Sunday, Bel Voir / Beth Shean / Qumran
After breakfast and checkout, we head out to the beautiful Crusader Fortress of Bel Voir and its breathtaking view of the Jordan Valley. We will also tour the ruins of Beth Shean – a fascinating city that we will enjoy exploring. After seeing the historical caves of Qumran, we will continue our journey to Jerusalem. Enroute, we will be able to see in the distance, the famous Old Testament city of Jericho Qoshua 2 & 6; Mark 10:46; Luke 19: I). Arriving at Mt. Scopus around sunset, we will see the beautiful city of Jerusalem.
Dinner and Overnight- Dan Panorama, Jerusalem
DAY 6 - Monday, Israel Museum / Mount of Olives / Temple Mount / Pool of Bethesda
After breakfast, we will tour the Israel Museum. Here we see an overview of the city of Jerusalem as well as many historical artifacts. Then it’s into the heart of Jerusalem. As we enter the Old City walls, we come upon the Western Wall (Wailing Wall) of Herod’s Temple. Beyond that lies the 35-acre temple area purchased by King David (2 Samuel 24:18-25). On this site stands the magnificent Dome of the Rock (the third holiest site in all of Islam). Next, we tour the Old City streets and see the ancient ruins of the Cardo. We will have a fascinating time of discovery in the Rabbinical Tunnel Tour-where we will be underground looking at the actual foundation stones of the Temple Mount. We will also see the site of the Pool of Bethesda Qohn 5). Dinner and Overnight-Dan Panorama, Jerusalem
DAY 7 - Tuesday, Ein Gedi / Masada / Dead Sea Swim and Spa
After breakfast this morning, we will depart for Ein-Gedi, the lush oasis in the desert, where David hid from King Saul (I Samuel 24:1- 6). Our next stop is Masada. We will take a new, large cable car up for a visit to one of King Herod’s palaces, which later became a Jewish landmark. Then it’s on to an afternoon of fun and relaxation at the Hod Resort near the Dead Sea, enjoying an afternoon of swimming or the use of the famous spas.

DAY 8 - Wednesday, Day of Leisure / Museums
We have purposely set aside today for exploring on your own. This is time to collect our thoughts and indulge our whims. Revisit the places of most interest. Visit one of the fascinating museums or the sobering Holocaust Memorial. Shopping in the Old City is a highlight for many. Dinner and Overnight-Dan Panorama, Jerusalem
DAY 9 - Thursday, Bethlehem-Ramat Rachel / Upper Room / Gethsemane / Caiaphas House / Garden Tomb
This morning we will visit the birthplace of our Saviour. This location is mentioned in Micah 4:8. Next is the spiritual highlight of the trip as we trace the final days of our Savior’s ministry. Our first stop is the Upper Room, a place similar to the room of the Last Supper (Mark 14:22-25). As we follow the steps of the last hours of our Savior, first, we will see Gethsemane. Kneeling next to the olive trees, we can only imagine what Christ must have endured. Our next stop is the house of Caiaphas, the High Priest, where Jesus was held during his trial. As we continue, we will see Calvary and the Place of the Skull. At our final stop, the Garden Tomb, there will be a special time of communion and reflection as we pray at the place where our Savior died and rose again. We will conclude our final day with our farewell dinner. Dinner and Overnight-Dan Panorama, Jerusalem
DAY 10 - Friday, Tel Aviv / USA
This morning, we will depart from Tel Aviv for our return flight to the USA. Our hearts will soar as we remember the many sites we visited as we walked in the footsteps of Jesus.
