Come see the land of the Bible . . .

with Wayne Stiles

October 18-29, 2018

No other place on earth can compare. The Holy Land is where God's biblical story took place. You have to experience it yourself to understand how life-transforming it truly is. 

This special tour of the land of the Bible is designed to take you beyond the places most tours to Israel see. We'll even experience the biblical sites of Jordan! 

Perfect for someone returning to Israel to see brand new places—or for the first-timer who wants to experience the Holy Land in a unique and fulfilling way.  

  • This exclusive, one-bus tour promises a more personal, curated experience. We’ll explore sites that large groups just can’t see.  
  • This tour is designed with you in mind. My goal is to transform the foreign places into familiar friends. 
  • You’ll discover how each site fits the biblical story every time the bus stops—all with your Bible in hand. 

See the Land with Bible in Hand  

This will be an exclusive, one-bus tour devoted to a magnificent overview of sites from both the Old and New Testament. On this tour, I will help you understand the life of our Lord as we connect the Bible and its lands to your life every time we stop—and all along the way.

  •  You will learn the Word of God right where it happened—with Bible in hand. After seeing where Jesus ministered, you will never read your Bible the same way again!
  •  I have invited our Israeli guide to offer cultural and historical connections as he travels with us.
  •  We’ll travel the land in a climate-controlled deluxe motor coach. 
  •  Our one-bus tour will go places and experience sites that larger groups never see. Just look at the itinerary below!

Cathy did a great job answering many questions, giving us tips about touring, and making sure everyone on the bus was doing well. Truly, this was a trip of a lifetime!"
