Frequently Asked Questions
We already have many tours of Israel booked for 2017 but if you are thinking of Touring Israel in 2017, now is the time to begin your preparation. Booking early can get you some really good deals. Below are a few questions we normally get asked by customers before travelling.
When should I visit Israel in 2017?
Well this depends on what you want to see and do. If your main focus is on nice weather then really you have the whole year to choose from – not forgetting that during the months of July through September the weather can become really hot. Rainy and more cooler weather can be experienced in December through February.
If you want to visit Israel during a Jewish festival then the most common dates are:
Purim – 11th March 2017 – Purim is one of the most fun holidays on the Jewish calendar
Shavu’ot – 30th May – 1st June 2017 – Pentecost – Feast of Weeks
Festival Of Lights – 28th June 2017 for 1 week
Rosh Hashana – 21-22 September 2017 – The Jewish New Year
Yom Kippur – 30th Septembe 2017 – Day of Atonement
Sukkot – 5-11 October 2017 – Feast of Tabernacles
Baptisms in the Jordan River
Baptism’s in the River Jordan can be included on any Israel Tour in 2017. There are two main sites where Baptisms take place on the Jordan River – one is near Jericho and the other is near the Sea of Galilee. Depending on the length of your tour and the locations you want to visit, advice can be given on the best location to visit to suit your itinerary.
There is also a third option available – you could always try a half day river rafting experience on the Jordan River. Participating in this activity almost guarantee’s a free baptism, or maybe even more than one!
Is it safe to Visit Israel in 2017?
The answer is a resounding YES! This is probably the most asked question by travelers. Please don’t always believe what you see on the TV. Israel, like any other country, has its issues but it is also one of the safest, friendliest locations on the planet to visit.
Each year we have many, many churches who book tours of Israel, many of which have people in their groups who are afraid due to what they see on TV. After spending a few days touring the Holy Land, 100% of these travellers (Yes, 100%) have then told us that they definitely want to return to Israel in the future and quite often book up there and then for a return visit the following year.
Do I need to speak Hebrew?
No, you do not need to speak Hebrew to visit Israel. Most shops, attractions and locals speak English as well as Hebrew. All road signs are also displayed in English as well as in Hebrew.
Is a tour of Israel suitable for people with disabilities?
Definitely Yes. We have a lot of experience in leading tours of Israel for people with disabilities. Most hotels and attractions have accessibility for those with limiting disorders and we also have access to busses / coaches with the necessary lifts to accommodate people in wheel chairs.
