Selah has a range of customised fully escorted tours for Australian Christians to travel on. However the time of year and dates don’t always work so we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to travel on tour through the Holy Land with guaranteed departures every Monday.
These tours offer individuals the opportunity to join a tour with travellers from all over the world.
Some of the renowned destinations of Holy Land tours include places such as the Old City, Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Western Wall, Temple Mount and Mount Zion and Shepherd’s field.
The eventful cities recorded in the Bible form an important part of a Holy Land tour. These include Bethlehem, where Jesus was born, Nazareth, Jerusalem and Jericho. The eventful sites, such as the Mount of transfiguration, the wilderness where Jesus was tempted, the tomb from which Lazarus was raised, the tomb where Jesus was laid and rose again, the river where He was baptized and the Way of grief (Via Dolorosa) where He carried the cross are imprinted in the pilgrim’s mind and help perceive the Bible from a deeper view.
“The time in Israel was very beneficial to my ministry. I know that my understanding of the scriptures has been significantly improved through this experience. I would highly recommend that every Christian puts the tour of Israel on their bucket list.”
Mark McDonald, St Hilary’s Kew
Selah offers a variety of tours to the Holy Land and we believe it is important for you to be aware that this tour is different to our fully escorted tours where we have a spiritual leader accompany the group from Australia. This particular tour is with local guides who are not trained in the Christian faith and whilst respectful of all faiths, their focus will be on the historical, cultural and faith based aspects of the sights visited without a particularly spiritual aspect.
Other passengers will be from different countries and may also have different faiths and beliefs.
We want to alert you to these differences in order to manage your expectations and ensure that you enjoy the tour fully. If you would like to find out more about escorted trips managed by Selah with a Christian tour leader, see our range of tours.
If you prefer to fly into Amman, Jordan we can arrange a transfer on arrival to the Israeli border for a land crossing (price on application)
