Experience the Holy Land like a local in this 10-day encounter through Israel’s most historic and spiritual sites. Swim in the Dead Sea, take a boat across the Sea of Galilee, and explore dozens of spiritual, Biblical, and historical sites including Mt. Beatitudes, the Wailing Wall, the Stations of the Cross, Mt. of Olives, and the Garden of Gethsemane, and many, many more. We’ll spend time in Jerusalem, Nazareth, and Galilee. There will be plenty of free time to roam the city’s many markets, alleyways, and other museums.
If 10 days isn’t enough, travellers have the option to extend the trip to Jordan and Egypt, each of which includes a visit to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, among other historic highlights.
ABOUT THE TOUR
We’re so excited to partner with PBT to host the first Glow Israel Encounter tour.
Recently, we had the opportunity to visit Israel for the first time and we had an incredible experience. The bible came alive as we travelled through all the places we had heard so much about.
You will be able to walk in the footsteps of your favourite bible heroes and Jesus. This trip will inspire your faith, deepen your worship, and change the way you read the Bible.
We look forward to spending time together as we travel through the Bible lands. Join us for this once in-a-lifetime experience.

Senior Pastors, Glow
Days 1 - 3
Ein Gedi - Dead Sea - Masada
We begin our trip in Ein Gedi, an oasis and a nature reserve in Israel, located west of the Dead Sea in the desert. Our hotel is set in the rich botanical gardens in Ein Gedi where David sought refuge from Saul. We’ll visit the mighty fortress of Masada and the site where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. Then relax by floating in the Dead Sea.
Days 3 - 6
Galilee - Nazareth - Megiddo
Galilee is next, with our hotel and base for the next 3 nights right on the water. We will visit the Nazareth Village, an open-air museum that re-enacts village life in the Galilee in the time of Jesus. The village features houses, terraced fields and an ancient synagogue. We’ll move on to Mt. Tabor and then the Sea of Galilee, where we’ll go by boat to St. Peter’s home and other local highlights.
Days 6 - 10
Caesarea - Jerusalem - Gethsemane
We end the trip in Jerusalem, arriving via the beautiful coastal road, which includes a stop in the ancient port city of Caesarea Maritima. In Jerusalem, we’ll visit the Mt. Of Olives, the site of the Ascension, Pater Noster, the Gardens of Gethsemane, and the Church of All Nations. We will be based in the Old City of Jerusalem. We will also make a stop at the baptismal site on the Jordan River.
