CHRIS AND LINDY HILL are delighted to present this wonderful programme of BIBLE TOURS to you. Each will be a feast of Bible Study and a rich experience on in-depth ministry. Our experience gained in leading tours over more than three decades has enabled us to construct exceptional programmes. But please note that while people of all ages come on our tours, a reasonable level of fitness is required because some sites involve the climbing of steps and others involve hiking.
Israel is unforgettable! A Bible Tour of the Holy Land is a true investment for disciples of Jesus. The visit should make God’s Word spring to life: and this is a very great blessing. Second, it stimulates our sense of God’s hand in human history – present and future as well as past. Third, Israel offers unsurpassed weather and scenery to make a visit to the Holy Land the holiday of a lifetime!
Is such a tour a wise use of our money? The prospect of spending so much on ourselves requires prayerful and careful thought. We certainly need to “hear the Lord” on this so that we can approach the tour with joy and not with a sense of guilt. So, as of first importance, pray it through. If, after praying, you still feel it is right to come, praise the Lord, give three cheers and send for your brochures!
THE ITINERARIES we offer are quite exceptional by any standards. If you compare them with other tours of comparable price you will see that we include many additions at no extra cost. This is because we want you to come to Israel, seeing as much of it as possible without rushing, and so we pare profit margins down to the barest minimum to enable you to do it. We see our tours as a ministry rather than as a business. The mere fact that many of the people who come on our tours are coming for the second, third and even fourth time speaks for itself! We endeavour to visit all the places mentioned in the Itinerary (and more besides) but we reserve the right to change the order of visits or to substitute one site for another one if new archaeological discoveries show it to be more important biblically. We also reserve the right to adjust the programme if local security becomes a factor.
Remember that there are no optional tours in our itineraries. All are included in the cover price.
You will be led through the Land of Israel by Chris and Lindy Hill, two of the best qualified tour leaders in Britain with 95 tours worth of experience spread over 35 years!

FOOD IN ISRAEL is delicious and it presents no problems for the European palate! In fact visitors are quick to appreciate the quality of Jewish and Arab cooking. The renowned Israeli breakfast provides an enormous buffet choice of foods and evening buffet dinners are always very substantial as well. Mid-day meals are taken in restaurants as we travel and they offer a wide range of foods from light snacks through to full meals. Prices are similar to those in our Motorway Service Areas. Taking food from the hotel dining rooms to eat later on at lunchtime is not permitted.
MEDICAL NEEDS are well provided for in Israel. Our Guide is trained in First Aid, a doctor is on call at the hotels we use and every town and village has at least one well stocked Pharmacy. Let your own GP know that you intend to go to Israel: he may advise some injections. If you are diabetic, celiac or have other dietary requirements, please let our Agent know at the time of Booking.
SMOKERS are asked to refrain from smoking in the coach and at mealtimes out of regard for other folks in the group.
FELLOWSHIP MEETINGS are not a daily feature of Chris and Lindy’s tours. In fact we only have two evening meetings. After all, members of the group are in fellowship all day long and Bible Study forms the backbone throughout. So after dinner, the opportunity is for an early night rather than a meeting! Many relationships are formed that regularly develop into lasting friendships.
PRICE SURCHARGES are only applied by the Agents in the unlikely event of major currency fluctuation, and even then they are kept to an absolute minimum. A surcharge might also be applied if air fares and hotel prices are increased. We like to advertise our tours well in advance and our published prices are correct at the time when the brochures are printed.
PRIVATE TOURS can be arranged for you by our Agents, Worldwide Christian Travel.
