Frequently Asked Questions

1The number 1 question we get asked: Is it safe to go to Israel?
I have been on over 25 tours and have never felt fear one time. There are places we avoid, but there are places anyone would avoid in places all around the globe. I believe fear is the #1 tactic Satan uses to keep people from having their lives impacted by a trip to Israel.
2Are there any hidden costs?
NO. We are very up front with what is included and what is not included. It’s easy to say what is not included on the regular tours. Maybe 4 or 5 lunches are not included. Everything else regarding the land travel is included. As we have participants from around the world, we offer LAND ONLY packages, meaning you purchase your own air transportation. Very detailed instructions are given with this. By the way, did you know that individual air travel is 99.99999% of the time cheaper than group air? It really is 100% of the time cheaper – I was just trying to give a little leeway.
3Is the water safe to drink and do I need vaccinations?
These two questions come up frequently. Israel is a modern country, the water is safe to drink, and you do not need vaccinations. Their fruits and vegetables are probably the best in the world.
4What do I need in regards to passports and visas?
Everybody needs to have a current passport that is valid six months from your RETURN date. As far as visas go, most countries do not require visas by Israel, including the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and many more. If you are from another country other than these, you can research online to see whether a visa is required.
5Is a lot of walking involved?
Yes, pure and simple, but not every day and some days there is barely any walking. We recommend good walking shoes as the terrain in Israel can be uneven and cobblestones. A trekking stick/cane is also recommended.
6How will I know what to pack?
Once you sign up, you will be sent a WHAT TO EXPECT Travel Tips Booklet that will answer just about any question you may have in regards to traveling to Israel.
7How do I sign up?
In order to reserve a spot, you need to send in your signed/completed Registration Form and Waiver, accompanied by a $500 per person non-refundable deposit.
8What is the single supplement?
How could I find a roommate so as not to pay this? A single supplement is an additional cost, over and above the package price. This is for those who will NOT be sharing a room. If you do not have a roommate, we can attempt to find one, if someone else is looking for one. This, however, is NOT guaranteed.
