Over millennia, this tiny bit of land, located on the warm shores of the Mediterranean, has cast a giant footprint on the world that belies its size. It is the birthplace of the three major monotheistic religions, whose epicenter, Jerusalem, is a beloved and coveted capital. Deep within the Judean desert lies the Dead Sea, the lowest spot on earth, whose mud is considered a cure for some illnesses and whose water is so buoyant that everyone can happily float. The fertile hills of the Galilee are resplendent with Arab and Jewish villages and ancient archaeological sites that reveal previous civilizations as archaeologists work to peel back the layers of rock, soil, and time. And today, modern cities have risen from the desert, attracting the trendiest travelers with a world-class foodie scene, high-end shopping, and incredible innovations in science and technology!
 
Whether you wander the land with the Bible as your guidebook or gravitate to the frenetic nightlife, beautiful beaches, and restaurants of Tel Aviv, you will discover that this old-new country truly lives up to its nickname, the Miracle on the Mediterranean.

† The Carefree Booking policy is not travel insurance and only applies to a new booking—defined as booking without the use of funds on file from a previous cancellation. With our Carefree Booking policy, if you book one of our scheduled departures and decide later not to travel for any reason, you can transfer all payments you've made excluding the cost of any issued flight tickets, towards another available departure date or package, with no change fees or penalties.

Alternately, you can choose to receive a future travel credit for all payments made, excluding the cost of any issued flight tickets; or you can choose to receive a refund for that same amount, minus the deposit, per person future travel credit.

You may use these credits anytime, however they must be used or transferred within 5 years of your booking.

The Carefree Booking policy only applies to your original booking—limiting rebookings to one. Subsequent bookings will be subject to standard cancellation penalties. Additionally, any coupon or discount (other than our Instant Savings) does not transfer from the cancelled booking and therefore will not be applied to the new booking.

Travel protection premiums may be credited to your new tour provided: no claim is filed; (no vendor penalties such as Air, sea or rail etc have been incurred); and your new trip departs within 1 year of the cancellation of your original tour.

Valid for bookings made on or after September 23, 2022 Offer may not be available on all packages, including private and custom group departures and Biblical Journeys. Changes or cancellations requested after final payment due date are subject to our regular change and cancellation fees & policies. For more information and some additional restrictions, see our terms & conditions.

†† $199 deposit available on select packages. Valid for new bookings only. Changes to your package, departure date, or flights may require an increased deposit. If you select our optional travel protection plan, the premium will be added to your deposit. See additional terms & conditions.
