Israel group tours include many amazing destinations with cultural, historical, and spiritual significance. Whichever destinations attract you to Israel; it is an amazing experience to walk in and to see the places where Christianity had its beginnings. Israel is also the home of the Dead Sea which is the furthest point below sea level on the Earth, and home to the second-lowest body of water on Earth as well, the Sea of Galilee. On the shores of the Sea of Galilee is also where much of the ministry of Jesus took place. Israel group tours will take you on an amazing journey of discovery in this fascinating place.
You will not want to miss visiting the city of Jerusalem on your tour of Israel. Israel Group tours to Jerusalem will have you exploring this amazing city which is the capital of Israel, and has both a fascinating history and present. You can experience the ancient past and the present by exploring the Old City and the New City. The Old City is surrounded by a wall and divided into four quarters: the Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Armenian quarters. Two fascinating Israel group tours in the Old City are visiting the Dome of the Rock and the Garden Tomb. The Dome of the Rock is considered Islam’s third holiest site after Mecca and Medina. The Garden Tomb is considered an alternate burial and resurrection site of Jesus for the Protestants (the site accepted by the Roman Catholic church is also in the Old City, at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher). The Garden Tomb is a quiet and reflective spot, and still a Protestant place of pilgrimage today. Then Israel Group tours can take you to the New City of Jerusalem where there are many great attractions like the Islamic Art Museum, Yad Vashem (the Holocaust museum), the Machane Yahuda Market (Jerusalem’s main market), and Mamilla – the modern shopping walk with artwork and street performers which is also a great place to grab a coffee and a meal. On a clear day, you will be able to see the Dead Sea in the distance from the New City.
