OVERVIEW

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 Thursday, based on a minimum of 2 passengers.

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 Bethlehem.

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.
