About This Tour

The objective of this tour is to visit various Biblical sites of archaeological significance in Israel, then hear teachings and discussions from the tour leaders.

In the north we will visit Caesarea Maritima, Tel Megiddo with an overlook of the Jezreel Valley (site of Armageddon), Nazareth Village, Magdala, Capernaum, the Jesus Boat, Caesarea Philippi, Tel Dan, the ancient city of Laish, and Tel Hazor.

In the Jordan Valley region we will spend time exploring Maayan Harod (Gideon Spring), Qumran (Dead Sea Scolls), the Dead Sea, Masada and En Gedi.

In Jerusalem we will be guided by Eli Shukron as we investigate the Western Wall, the City of David excavation, Hezekiah’s Tunnel, the Pool of Siloam, and other recent discoveries surrounding the potential Second Temple location south of the traditional Temple Mount.

We will also visit the Shrine of the Book, Beit Shemesh, and Tel Shilo (where the Tabernacle first stood in Israel) to name only a few from the exciting tour itinerary we have planned. Our final visit will be to the Garden Tomb before making our way back to the airport in Tel Aviv.
