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 Sunday.

These tours offer individuals the opportunity to join a tour with travellers from all over the world.

See the main attractions of the Holy Land on this 8 days guaranteed departure tour of Israel, from the Dead Sea in the South, Jerusalem in the centre all the way to the Galilee region in the North.

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.
