10 days
Israel

Bill B. (Religious Education) and Brian B. (Director of Education and Secretary-Treasurer)

In 2018 and again in 2019 we worked with Bill and Brian to create a bespoke faith pilgrimage tour of Israel. In addition to the school's tours going to Italy, Greece, Peru and beyond, Bill and Brian wanted to offer something different to their community. Their latest tour will see travellers cruising on the Sea of Galilee, spending a night in the desert at a Bedouin Camp and exploring the ancient sites of Old Jerusalem.
