21 tourists travelled together from Australia and the Philippines in April to spend 8 days in Israel touring the sites of the Holy Land.
They spent time in the North visiting the Christian sites around the Sea of Galilee and enjoying a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee. In Cana many of them renewed their wedding vows at the Wedding Church. The group visited Nazareth and the impressive Church of Annunciation, Mt Tabor and Muhraka before continuing to Jerusalem.
Their time in Jerusalem included visiting the City of David including the Warren Shaft and the Hezekiah Tunnels, walking the traditional Palm Sunday Road to the Garden of Gethsemane and Church of All Nations as well as touring many other sites in Jerusalem.
Other places visited during the tour were Bethlehem which included the St. Catherine Church and Manger Square, the hilltop fortress of Masada and Jericho the world’s oldest city.
