Tours to the Holy Land


Our tours to the Holy Land are an unforgettable experience for pilgrims and travellers of all faiths; whether you are a pilgrim travelling for spiritual reasons or you are interested in the region’s rich archaeology and cultural heritage.

At Joe Walsh Tours we are delighted to offer a selection of pilgrimages as well as wonderful once-in-a-lifetime cultural tours to the Holy Land.

PILGRIMAGE TO THE HOLY LAND 

Since the 4th century, Christians have been travelling on pilgrimage to the Holy Land as a special way to come closer to God, visiting the sites connected to the life, birth and crucifixion of Jesus.

Pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a once in a lifetime experience and very special spiritual journey to the oldest and most important pilgrimage destination in the world: Jerusalem and the Holy Land.

As you travel across this sacred land and follow in the footsteps of Jesus and his disciples, this memorable journey brings the scriptures to life.

On our pilgrimage tours to the Holy Land you will visit important biblical places such as Bethlehem, the church of the Nativity and the Mount of Olives; take a boat across the Sea of Galilee and renew your baptismal vows in the Jordan River.

CULTURAL TOURS TO THE HOLY LAND

Jerusalem and the Holy Land, the region between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea, has been considered sacred by Christians but also by pilgrims of other faiths such as Jews and Muslims for many centuries. It is also an area of spectacular archaeological sites and incredible heritage.

As well as visiting important sites of devotion for different faiths, on our cultural tours to the Holy Land you will also get to experience the vibrant city life of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem’s wonderful UNESCO listed Old Town; the relaxing calm of the Dead Sea and the beauty of the Jordan River valley.

On our escorted pilgrimage and cultural tours to the Holy Land, you will join a group of pilgrims and travellers led by our knowledgeable local tour guide. If you’d like to organise a private group, talk to our travel experts and we will be happy to help you plan a memorable trip.

The experienced Joe Walsh Tours travel team will look after all the details so you can relax and enjoy this trip of a lifetime.
