They are also popular among those who want to renew their faith, attend and serve in the church, and constantly listen to the good news of the Lord. The places included in the itineraries of the tours offered will definitely cause every participant to have a deeper reflection of their Christian faith. Below are some of the destinations in Israel that are truly worth-visiting.

1. Jerusalem - A trip to Israel is never complete without a visit to Jerusalem. It is the most popular city in the country. The guided tours allow you to have a spectacular view as well as a great insight of the Old and New Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. You also get to visit the holiest site, the Western Wall, which is located in the Jewish Quarter. Golgotha, the place near the location where Jesus was crucified, is one of the places in Jerusalem that every traveler should not miss. Other popular spots in Jerusalem that you should visit are the Christian Quarter through the Via Dolorosa, Church of the Holy Sepulture, Cardo (the old Roman market), the Holocaust memorial museum called the Yad Vashem, Temple Mount, Hezekiah's Tunnel, Dome of the Rock, King David's tomb, the Last Supper and the Dormition Abbey.
