Tour Map

Take your International flight departing from SYD/MEL/BNE to Tel Aviv.

On an inspirational journey to the Holy Land you will visit some of the most ancient sites in the world. Your tour begins with a free day in Tel Aviv, a bustling city brimming with culture and history, situated on the Israeli Mediterranean coastline. Tonight, join your fellow travellers for a welcome dinner.

Journey to the ancient port city of Jaffa for a leisurely stroll through the winding alleys of the historic area. Visit the Roman Aqueduct and Theatre at Caesarea, a centre for early Christians. Walk in the footsteps of Cornelius, the first Gentile convert to the new covenant (Acts 10) by St. Peter, and see where Paul was imprisoned before being taken to Rome for trial (Acts 23). Visit Nazareth, Jesus’ boyhood home (Matthew 2:23). Spend time at the place where Joseph’s home and workshop were – Church of the Annunciation – as well as the site of the fresh water spring used by the Holy Family. Your day continues with a visit to Cana, the site of Our Lord’s first miracle, where Jesus transformed water into wine (John 2:1-11). Arrive in Tiberias for a 2-night stay.

Cross the Sea of Galilee aboard a boat similar to what Jesus would have sailed. Step into another time at the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus preached the “Sermon on the Mount” (Matthew 5-7). Continue to nearby Tabgha to the Church of the Fish and the Loaves and pause for a moment of quiet prayer at the traditional location for the calling of the disciples and the feeding of the five thousand. Spend time in Capernaum, the centre of Jesus’ ministry in Galilee and where Jesus performed many miracles, such as expelling demons and curing the sick. Visit the site where Jesus taught and reflect on his teaching and preaching of the gospel (Matthew 4:13, 23). Stand where Peter stood when he professed his devotion to the risen Christ (John 21) on three occasions. Get a taste of the local flavour when you enjoy lunch at a communal settlement, known as a kibbutz, in the Golan Heights. Visit Caesarea Philippi, where Jesus travelled with His disciples and near where Peter made his great confession to Jesus, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16). Your day ends at the River Jordan at the Yardenit Baptismal site.

Visit Tel Megiddo (Armageddon), the site of the final battle before the coming of the Messiah. In Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus (Luke 2), enter the Church of the Nativity and pause for a moment of reflection as you view the cave where Jesus was born. Stop at Shepherds’ Field, where the angels appeared on that first Christmas night spreading good tidings of great joy for all the people. Later, arrive in one of the holiest cities in the world: Jerusalem.

Your time in Jerusalem begins with a visit to the Mount of Olives. Afterwards, visit the site where Christ taught the Lord’s Prayer, Church of the Pater Noster and the Church of All Nations where Our Lord prayed the night before He was crucified. Take a moment to reflect at the Tomb of the Holy Mother and the Garden of Gethsemane – the site of Christ’s betrayal by Judas. Travel to Mount Zion and stand in the Upper Room, near the traditional site of the Last Supper (Mark 14). Then, continue to Ein Karem, the birthplace of John the Baptist and the place to which Mary travelled to share her good news with Elizabeth.

Today you are free to explore the city on your own. Perhaps you’ll choose to take an optional excursion to the Dead Sea to discover where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found; visit Masada; and perhaps even float on the salty waters of the Dead Sea.

**See optional excursions.

Pause for a moment of devotion at St. Stephen’s Gate where St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr, was stoned to death. Continue to the Church of St. Anne before visiting the Pools of Bethesda, where Jesus healed the paralytic. Travel the Way of the Cross – the Via Dolorosa – walked by Our Lord on the way to His crucifixion. You’ll pass by the Ecce Homo Arch, the site where Pontius Pilate presented Our Lord to the crowds. Visit the Western Wall of the Temple before stopping at the Garden Tomb, the possible site of the garden of Joseph of Arimathea and the resurrection of Jesus. Enjoy a farewell dinner with your fellow travellers to celebrate the end of this unforgettable and holy experience.

Say goodbye to Israel as your tour comes to a close today. After breakfast, you will be transferred to the airport to take your flight back home.

 

Arrive in Australia to share with your family and friends your unforgettable experiences.

Ask you travel consultant about a 3-night extension to Jordan, where you can experience the desert life of the Bedouin people and uncover the incredible stone-carved city of Petra.
