Israel 2024

Walking where Jesus walked                                                                         

Hello and thank you for your interest in joining our tour to Israel in 2024!

As you consider joining us, please note that the tour is a chronological tour in the life of Jesus. It is also a very strenuous tour – we cover a lot of ground in a short space of time and do a lot of walking, hiking and climbing stairs. On average, we walk 10 km every day – so you need to be aware of this and fit enough to be able to walk up to 13km comfortably. We don’t want to put you off – but do need you to be aware.

Please see details below regarding dates, flights, visas, tour price, etc and let me know if you have any questions.

  • Dates – Arrival Saturday 21st of September 2023 – Departure Tuesday 1st October
  • Flights – these are not included in the price of the tour – you are asked to book your own.  This is done so that you can choose your own airline and so that if you are keen, you can choose to stay longer in Israel or arrive earlier etc.
  • Visa Requirements – As a South African passport holder, you will not need a visa unless you have a temporary/emergency passport. If you are not a South African passport holder please investigate whether or not you require a visa. Your passport needs to be valid for 6 months from date of departure from Israel.
