People have been taking Pilgrimage Tours to Israel for hundreds of years. The physical journey mirrors the spiritual adventure of setting out into the unknown. My tours are uniquely rooted in this tradition. They are also modern explorations into history, religion, faith, Bible, geography, politics and the wild and unfolding conversation that happens across these disciplines. I've been leading tours to Israel for fifteen years and I learn something new with every group. This trip will change your life.
For information on upcoming tours, including pricing and open slots, please contact me. If you are part of a church, school or organization and are interested in a group experience, I can arrange dates that work with your needs. Small private tours to Israel, Turkey, Greece and Italy can also be arranged. Please include in the subject which tour you are interested in joining.
Here is a list of upcoming tours. I lead all kinds of groups - religious, non-religious, Jewish and Christian, schools and churches, families and organizations, all are welcome, all have something to learn from the land and culture that have shaped our understanding of God, the Bible and being human. Typically, my tours are intensive experiences, with full days and plenty of hiking. There is also good conversation as we learn from one another, from the land, from history and the Bible. Israel is one of the busiest tourist countries in the world and I make every effort to provide a safe, life-giving and rewarding experience.
