FAQ

Jerry and I have visited Israel quite a few times over the years. Here are a few questions and answers we’ve learned along the way:

Do I need a visa?
M
L

No- a current passport with more than six months before expiration is needed.

Am I safe?
M
L

Every day our guide and bus driver check in with Jerusalem tours and police agencies. If there is even a slight hint of a “hot spot”, we adjust the schedule.

Do I need to dress up?
M
L

No. We will dress warm and casual the whole trip.

Any clothing suggestions?
M
L

Walking shoes!!!! Women, bring a scarf to cover your head at the western wall. Layers!!! The bus is locked when we aren’t on it so we can leave coats on the bus if it warms up.

Do they take USD?
M
L

Yes! They will give you change in shekels. A credit card with no international fees is best.

Is there a Bible study before we go?
M
L

Yes. We will have an 8-10 week study of where we are going so you are prepared for what we see.

Can I use points to buy my flight?
M
L

Yes, there is a lane-only price.

Is there wifi?
M
L

Yes - you will never be without it except for the airplane.

Can I drink the water?
M
L

Yes

Is there a lot of walking?
M
L

Yes. LOTS! Be prepared to walk up and down 3-4 miles a day.
