Religious Tours - An Incredible experience

Meet other believers and follow in the footsteps…

When going on a religious trip or tour, you get the fantastic opportunity to meet fellow believers and make new friends.  Going on such a trip with your friends or a special group of people are memories made for life and it’s an incredible experience

These trips often not only focus on the religious part of the destination but also the historical and cultural heritage.  You’ll experience the cuisine and do sightseeing as well.

6 of the most visited religious places in the world are:

  • Mecca in Saudi Arabia
  • The Vatican City in Italy
  • Basilica of our Lady of Guadalupe, Mexico City in Mexico
  • Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, France
  • Kashi Vishwanath Temple in Varanasi, India
  • The Wailing Wall or Western Wall (known in Islam as the Buraq Wall) in Jerusalem, Israel

Jerusalem and the whole of Israel are definitely seen as one of the most sacred places in the world.  With Mount Sinai in Egypt and The Jordan also being favorites amongst travelers.

Travel Tip(s)

Remember to pack extra flash drives or storage devices for your photos and comfortable walking shoes.  A good travel tip from us for these tours would be to dress in layers.  Always have something to “cover up” when visiting religious sights.  Furthermore always remember to take store bought bottled water with you on these trips.

Visit spectacular sights like:

  • The Ancient Egyptian Pyramids and the Great Sphinx at Giza
  • Sinai Desert
  • St Catherine Monastery
  • The Dead Sea
  • Jericho
  • Mount Nebo
  • Tel Aviv
  • And many more…

Travel Tip(s)

The best time to visit Egypt and Jordan is from February to May and September to early November when the weather is colder, but the sun is still out. Traveling in May and September are exceptionally good months in Egypt because you will not pay the high-season prices.

St George Monastery

The Monastery of Saints John and George of Choziba is also best known as Saint George Monastery in Wadi Qelt (Arabic: دير القديس جورج‎) or simply the Monastery of Choziba.  It is located in Wadi Qelt, in the eastern West Bank, Jerusalem.

The religious believe connected to this very impressive building:
  • “It is reached by a pedestrian bridge across Wadi Qelt, which many believe to be Psalm 23‘s “valley of the shadow of death”.  The valley parallels the old Roman road to Jericho, the backdrop for the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:29–37). The monastery is open to pilgrims and visitors.” – Wikipedia

The monastery is open to the public daily (except on Sundays and certain holidays).

However in reference to our Travel Tip above, here is a strict dress code. No shorts for men; no trousers of any sort for women (women must wear a long skirt) and should wear a modest top.

What To Expect

These tours can be customized to suit your preference and you can request a private tour or slot in with a small group tour.  There are special focus on social distancing and health safety, so you can enjoy less crowded places at the right time of day.

When booking one of these religious tours, it includes accommodation as well as an expert guide, meals, transport and more.  You don’t have to worry about a thing…well except for what you will be packing.

Your guide will be knowledgeable and you can enjoy a safe and interesting trip.  You select the tour package (see below) and the travel operator arranges everything. 

My opinion is that it is also a great idea to link two tours to different destinations to create one fantastic multi-day package.

The only other thing you have to do is book your flight tickets and with that we can help you to. Easily compare and book the best flights with the link here at the top of the page.  Find budget friendly options or flights that suit your timeline best.
