Day by Day Travel Itinerary

    DEPARTURE

    Today we depart from our home cities for our flight to Tel Aviv, Israel, with a connection in Chicago.

  • Day 02 Fri . Mar . 03
    RRIVAL TEL AVIV / NETANYA

    We arrive in the Holy Land this afternoon where we are met by our Wilcox Tours agent and guide. Enjoy a scenic drive through Jaffa, the oldest port in the world.  From here Jonah set sail for Tarshish, but he was swallowed by a whale. Jaffa was also the home of Tabitha who was raised from the dead by Peter. And, while lodging in the home of Simon the Tanner, Peter has his vision. Next we head north to Netanya where we’ll have one overnight at our hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

  • Day 03 Sat . Mar . 04
    MEGIDDO / NAZARETH / TIBERIAS

    Today we proceed northward to Caesarea Maritima from where the Apostle Paul sailed to Rome. Extensive ruins of the Roman aqueduct and amphitheater built by King Herod remain, including the sunken harbor and the hippodrome.  We then drive to Mt. Carmel, with a panoramic view of the Plain of Jezreel (I Kings 18 – the confrontation between Elijah and the prophets of Baal). We continue to Megiddo for the background to Armageddon (Revelations 16); more than 5,000 years old and once used by Solomon as an important chariot city. Journey through the Jezreel Valley to Nazareth, Jesus’ boyhood home, where we see the Grotto of the Annunciation and Nazareth Baptist Church. In Cana, Jesus performed His first miracle by turning water into wine. Then we cross over to the Arbel cliff for a magnificent view over the Sea of Galilee and the sites of Jesus’ mission (Matthew 4). We continue to our hotel in Tiberias for dinner and the next two overnights.

  • Day 04 Sun . Mar . 05
    UPPER GALILEE / TIBERIAS
    This morning we take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum, pausing en route for a special service. The ancient synagogue and St. Peter’s house still stands in Capernaum. Bethsaida Archaeological Park has been under excavation since 1987 and is now open! This ancient fishing village was home to the Apostles Phillip, Simon and Andrew. We’ll see authentic first century homes and streets that have not been built over in the past two thousand years, but miraculously preserved from the days of Jesus’ ministry! Marvel at the view of Galilee from the Mount of Beatitudes, site of the Sermon on the Mount. Next, we go to Tabgha, the traditional site of the Feeding of the Five Thousand. After a St. Peter’s fish lunch, we continue through the Hula Valley (part of the Great Rift Valley) to Hazor. Drive to Dan and Banias Springs at the foot of Mount Hermon. Here at Banias is Caesarea Philippi, where Peter made his great confession of faith. We will have a special baptismal service at the Jordan River. If you wish to be baptized or reaffirm your faith again by baptism, plan to join this ceremony.
  • Day 05 Mon . Mar . 06
    JERUSALEM
    Among Israel’s most impressive ruins are those found in Beit She’an. Excavators have discovered 18 successive towns featuring black and white stones, marble columns, mosaics, and a 6,000 seat.  Byzantine amphitheater. Journey further south to the oldest city in the world, Jericho, settled in 9,000 BC. It is also the lowest, at 820’ below sea level. This was the first city conquered by the Israelites in the Promised Land, under Joshua’s command. View the Mt. of Temptation where Jesus was led into the wilderness and tempted by the devil, after His baptism. Continue through the deep and picturesque gorge of Wadi Kelt to Jerusalem, the city of David. The next four nights in Jerusalem!
  • Day 06 Tue . Mar . 07
    MASADA / JERUSALEM
    Early this morning we drive through Ein Gedi to visit the fortress Masada, rising 1,200 feet above the desert plain. See the restoration efforts of remains of buildings dating back to the fourth and fifth centuries AD. Afterward, those who wish may enjoy a “float” in the Dead Sea. View Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found by a Bedouin shepherd in 1948, before visiting the Shrine of the Book, displaying the scroll of Isaiah. This evening, a shopping extravaganza.
  • Day 07 Wed . Mar . 08
    BETHLEHEM / JERUSALEM
    Ephrath - meaning fertility, is now known as Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus. In the Church of the Nativity, we see a stone manger, where it is believed Jesus was born. This site next to the inn was where the animals were kept, and fed. Continue to Shepherds’ Field where an angel appeared before the shepherds to tell them of the birth of Christ. In Mt. Zion we visit the Coenaculum - Room of the Last Supper, and Tomb of David; the Church of St. Peter in Galicantu, where Peter denied Christ three times before the cock crowed - also known as the House of Caiaphas, where Jesus was brought after his arrest. In the Valley of Kidron we see the Pool of Siloam where Jesus healed a blind man.
  • Day 08 Thu . Mar . 09
    JERUSALEM / THE OLD CITY
    Deep in the heart of Jerusalem we tour the Jewish Heritage Tunnel (also known as the Western Wall Tunnel) and see the Dome of the Rock Mosque, next to the Wailing Wall. Our walking tour in the Old City of Jerusalem will begin by the Lion’s Gate, at the Church of St. Anne, and the Pool of Bethesda, where Jesus said to the man “Take up thy bed and walk.” Along the Via Dolorosa - “Sorrowful Road,” we see the stations connected with Jesus’ crucifixion. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre represents the final station where He was crucified.
  • Day 09 Fri . Mar . 10
    JERUSALEM
    The Holyland Model affords us the opportunity to envision what Jerusalem might have looked like during the reign of King Herod. This magnificent work of art is continually being updated as new archaeological discoveries are being made. On the Mount of Olives, we visit the Paternoster Church, where the Lord’s Prayer is written in 35 languages, Church of Ascension, Tomb of the Virgin Mary, Garden of Gethsemane, and the Church of All Nations. Enjoy a breathtaking panorama of old and new Jerusalem. A special service will be held at the Garden Tomb. This afternoon is at your leisure. This evening we’ll enjoy a farewell dinner before we drive to the airport for our late evening check in for our flight home.
  • Day 10 Sat . Mar . 11
    ARRIVE USA
