Is it safe to visit the Holy Land?
Definitely! Holy Land has received more than 3.5 million visitors in the last year. If traveling was unsafe, we wouldn’t take our pilgrims to the Holy Land.
For the many years that we have been organizing trips, safety, and security have always been our number one priority. We review our schedules on a daily basis and maintain ongoing contact with government and security offices. While you may be concerned about travel out of your home country, you can be certain that we will take every safety and security precaution necessary on your trip. In addition to refraining from entering unsafe areas, we never intentionally bring groups to any site or area that we feel is unsafe.
While in the Holy Land, your tour guide will be able to address any concerns you may have. The most pressing being when and where to carry your passport, and places that you simply need to be more aware of your own belongings. As long as you use common sense and listen to your tour guide you will be very safe.
Please know that we would not operate trips to destinations that are not safe and that we try to provide the highest standard of safety and security. We hope and pray for peace and for your safety and wish you an amazing trip.
