On this very special journey we can experience first hand the land in which Jesus lived and died and then continue to experience the enactment of His Life and Passion in the village of Oberammergau. Journey to the Lands of the Bible; explore the shores of the Sea of Galilee in which Jesus lived and performed most of his miracles. Visit Nazareth, the Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum and so much more. Then continue to the holy City of Jerusalem, around which Jesus’ life revolved. Sacred to three of the world’s great religions, this city should be on everyone’s bucket list. Highlights will include the old city, the Garden Tomb, the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, the Way of the Cross and the church of the Holy Sepulchre. Venture outside the city to Bethlehem, the Dead Sea, Masada and more. Travelling north into Europe, we have planned a very leisurely exploration that will feature two nights in beautiful Salzburg, and two nights in Oberammergau to attend the play, followed by a final night in Munich before returning to Canada. In 2020 our Holy Land tours were the first to sell out and so read on but don’t delay. Call today to reserve your places.
