Christian Sites in Israel
A journey to Israel can be a journey to the center of your faith. Walk with Jesus through the Land of Israel for an unforgettable spiritual experience. Stand where He stood for the Sermon on the Mount and see the sites of His ministry in Galilee. See Paul's dwelling at Capernaum, the site where Jesus was baptized in the Jordan river and an ancient fishing vessel which plied the waves of the sea of Galilee in the time of Jesus. Visit the holy sites of Nazareth and Bethlehem and of course, the crowning jewel - Jerusalem. Walk in the garden of Gethsemane, enter the dungeon of the high priest Caiaphas and stand at the site of the crucifixion and resurrection.

This was a wonderful tour. Gary was cheerful and friendly, and very flexible in arranging the tour. We had already done some of the normal stops on the tour, so Gary rearranged on the fly to customize the trip for us. He even arranged a Palestinian guide to take us to Bethlehem on about 2 hours notice. This, combined with Gary's deep knowledge of the subject matter, made the trip an unforgettable experience. Having a personal guide meant that we were able to move much faster than tour buses, and see more.
