9 Day Christian Pilgrimage
More than merely a time capsule of sacred sites and ancient ruins, Israel is where the Bible comes to bold, breathing life. Come with us and retrace the journeys of Jesus on this captivating spiritual discovery that connects the Sea of Galilee, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and the Dead Sea into a private guided experience you’ll treasure forever.

After arriving in Tel Aviv, your journey begins in the pastoral Galilee region. Here, you’ll have the chance to explore the ruins of Caesarea (the one-time capital of the Roman province of Judaea), gaze out over Haifa from the top of Mount Carmel, stroll the wondrous Bahai Gardens, and descend by the world’s steepest cable car into the limestone grottos of Rosh Hanikra. In nearby Tiberias, walk in the footsteps of Jesus himself on a private tour of Sepphoris, believed to be the childhood home of Mary, and visit the Church of St. Anne before exploring some of Nazareth’s holiest sites: the Basilica of the Annunciation and the Church of the First Miracle in Cana, where Jesus turned water into wine. Later, explore the sacred sites of Jerusalem’s fabled Old City on a private guided tour, beginning atop the Mount of Olives and moving through the Garden of Gethsemane (where Jesus prayed the night before his arrest), the Lion’s Gate, and along the Via Dolorosa through the Jewish Quarter to the Cardo and the Western Wall before concluding atop Mount Zion, believed to be the site of the Last Supper.

In nearby Bethlehem, you’ll visit the Chapel of the Milk Grotto (where the Holy Family sought refuge during the slaughter of the innocents) and the Church of the Nativity before embarking on a stroll through the art galleries, biblical sites, and other wonders of Ein Karem, all with a private guide. Next, journey to the edge of the Dead Sea and visit the beautiful Ein Gedi Reserve, a desert oasis referenced in the Book of Psalms, then explore Masada, the ancient UNESCO-protected fortress, before ending the day soaking in the Sea’s saline-rich waters. On your last day, you’ll experience the Holy City’s more modern side on a private full-day tour of the New City, including stops at the Israel Museum (home of the Dead Sea Scrolls) and the Yad Vesham Holocaust memorial before returning to Ein Karem for lunch and a chance to see the world-famous Chagall Windows at the Hadassah Medical Center before returning to Tel Aviv and home.
