What is The Holy Land?
The Holy Land is considered to be the region of what is today Israel and Palestine. Though a relatively small region of the world, it is filled with history, culture, various peoples and most of all, places of significance to the three Abrahamic faiths: Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
Traveling to the Holy Land is possible by three ways: by air through Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv, by land through Jordan or Egypt, or by sea at one of two ports (Haifa and Ashdod). All visitors to the Holy Land require a passport valid six months prior to their date of entry. The local currency is the New Israeli Shekel (NIS), although US Dollars are accepted almost in every location. The Holy Land has a Mediterranean climate, with hot summers, warm springs and autumns, and wet winters.
The Holy Land is a safe, welcoming place for pilgrims; even during times of conflict in the region, pilgrims regularly safely arrive and leave after enjoying a full program.The regions that you will be visiting on your Holy Sepulcher Tours program are safe and hospitable to pilgrims.
