Here are answers to important questions for our next Holy Land adventure.
How large is the group?
Only 15 participants plus us (Bruce and Alessandra). The perfect size for moving about easily and for having personal encounters.
How long is the program?
11 full days on the ground (not including arrival and departure days).
What does it cost?
$3,100 USD per person, double occupancy, based on a group of 14-17 participants.
What does that price include?
Accommodations, tips, private ground transport (with AC), group transfer from airport to Bethlehem and to airport from Nazareth, site entrance fees, local briefings and guides, all breakfasts and lunches, five group dinners including homemade Arabic dinner in Palestinian house, dinner with live music, shabbat dinner with Jewish families, and a dinner on the Sea of Galilee.
What is not included in the price?
It does not include round-trip airfare to Tel Aviv (you arrange your own flight), traveler’s insurance, six meals, and optional alcoholic beverages.
What should I bring?
We encourage you to pack lightly. Aside from the obvious, be sure to bring good walking shoes, a hat, a swimsuit, water shoes or flip flops, a refillable water bottle, day pack, passport pouch, small flashlight, notebook, adapter plug for recharging (simple, like this). No need to bring lots of cash; you can pull what you need in local currency from ATMs.
For all the biblical sites and discussions, we recommend bringing a Bible.
