ISRAEL  HOLY LAND  & SURROUNDS   -tours

We tour to Israel, and some of our tours also visit Jordan, on special tour packages which have been tested for many, many years. (Egypt is available on request)

   At an exceptionally good price!

Instead of doing the normal touristy routes and queues, we are led by local Israeli specialists and local South African Christian specialists, who know how to bypass/sidestep the hustle and bustle, and have us experience what is more interesting and of specific value to Christians who want to experience the Holy Land.

   Forget the long queues to kiss the stones   :-)

   This is a tour for an exceptional Christian experience.

This tour is organised for times of the year when it is expected to be less expensive, when the big numbers of tourists are not there in their droves, and when it is not too hot or cold.

Accommodation is top class, two people per room. Two meals per day: Breakfast and Dinner.

If you want to tour Israel, join one of these tours, and look carefully and beware of tours that only cover the touristy regions of the West Bank, Jerusalem, etc.

Many people who have done this tour, told of a point in the tour which was specifically of significance to them, where they always wanted to be, where they felt they had a special meeting with their creator, God (that is YHVH) - (we're not talking about Alh here!)

Come join us. This is your real chance to be with committed Christians on tour through the holy land of Israel, with Touring South Africa. You may be surprised at the very interesting and filled itinerary.

The tours to Israel are much in demand, and not to be missed, so..
