Why Us?
What make our tours different?

All of our tours run at a very ‘easy going’ pace – you will NOT be rushed from one site to another or herded on and off coaches all day long.

When reading the tour itinerary it may appear that there are a lot of sites to cover in one day but the routing for the tour has been carefully devised to reduce travelling time and to ensure that you get the most from your time in Israel (Many sites are also quite near to each other – especially in Jerusalem).

Our tours follow the leading of the Holy Spirit

All of our Tour Guides are Born Again Christian believers in Yeshua. As such, all of our tours are Spirit led and faith filled experiences. After many years of touring groups around the Holy Land we have found that the best way to ensure that all of our passengers are blessed is to allow the Lord to lead the tours (not us). This not only brings life and fulfilment to those on the tour (including staff) but it also allows the Glory of God to touch locals as we tour Israel with the Light of Jesus shining brightly.

Even though we provide an itinerary to all clients touring with us, we always explain that this is subject to change should the Lord decide to work in and through situations as we travel. All sites on our itineraries will be visited during the tour but if the Lord chooses to move in a specific direction we follow His leading and the route may be changed to suit.

Please note: our tours are NOT religious tours but rather faith filled experiences that allow believers to meet with and receive from the Lord in a living and dynamic way as they tour the Holy Land. We all tour as a family of believers – a group of brothers & sisters in Christ Jesus.

Our tours have small group sizes

We try to limit the size of our group tours to a maximum of 26 passengers. This ensures that people are offered a good price for the tour but it also avoids the problems that can occur with larger groups. Having a smaller group ensures that:

• We travel together as a ‘family’ of believers in Christ
• Everyone has access to the Tour Guide / Driver
• No one in the group will be ‘left out’ – or feel left out
• There will not be the same delays that can occur with groups of 40+ PAX
• It is easier to get to know everyone and make new friends
• You will receive a tour where you know where you have been to and have been given the time required to appreciate each of the sites visited

(many passengers on larger tours quite often state how they visited so many places that they did not know where they had been to and did not have the time they required at many of the sites to appreciate their significance – this does not happen on our tours)

We run these tours to bring the Lord’s people to Israel and to see them blessed while in His land

Even though Elbow Holy Land Tours is a business, and it puts food on the table for it’s employees, the real reason for ‘Elbow’ – that which connects – is to bring a point of connection between Christian believers throughout the world and the Lord’s people in Israel. We run this business to provide other Christian believers with true Spiritual experiences while touring/visiting Israel and also to show the the locals living in Israel that Yeshua is real and available to them, as we allow His glory to shine through the groups we tour.

Come and join us

If you are planning on visiting Israel in 2023 and are undecided about which tour to take or book onto, please pray about it and if you feel the Lord is leading you to us then we will be happy to assist you in anyway that we can. If you feel the Lord is leading you elsewhere, then don’t resist what He is doing – follow His leading and everything with work out as He see’s fit and for His glory.
