Tour Itinerary

From the seemingly miraculous waters of the Dead Sea to Cana of Galilee where Jesus is said to have performed his first miracle of turning water into wine—this fascinating tour of Israel is full of incredible sights, scenery, and stories. The historical and biblical tales begin in Tel Aviv, the “Mediterranean Manhattan,” continue to the Mount of Beatitudes where it is believed Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount, and culminate at the lowest (yet most uplifting)point on the surface of the Earth—the Dead Sea where you’ll effortlessly float at 430 meters below sea level. Discover the fascinating city of Jerusalem and dive into numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sites—including the golden-domed Baha’i Shrine in Haifa and the ancient clifftop fortress of Masada—not to mention some of the most delectable dishes of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine.

Health and Safety Protocols for Globus Tours

Today's world has changed, but what remains certain is Globus' commitment to guest safety, comfort and peace-of-mind while traveling with us. To that end, Globus has established a worldwide Assurance program, with enhanced on-trip protocols and procedures, to ensure the health – and happiness – of guests throughout their travels with us.

It all starts with Globus' Global Health & Safety Team, dedicated to ensuring that cleanliness of all operations exceeds today’s travel standards—from start to finish. The following areas address Globus' commitment to providing a safe and clean environment for guests.

A SAFE & WARM WELCOME

Globus will enact new tour check-in procedures and pre-trip health screenings to offer guests a safe start to their journey, including adherence to social distancing requirements.

BLENDING CULTURAL PROXIMITY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCE

Globus will ensure safe distances for guests throughout the journey, on coach and during excursions. This includes providing masks for guests use at any time where social proximity could be an issue as well as the possibility of reducing group sizes, if required. And wireless listening technology – including Globus' Go Beyond Devices in Europe – enables safe distances between guests and other travelers on excursions.

FOCUS ON GUEST AND TEAM MEMBER HEALTH

To ensure a healthy environment for team and guests, Globus will conduct regular temperature checks for both guests and team, and when necessary, masks will be worn by Globus' team members when with guests.

TOUCHING HEARTS, NOT HANDS

Traveling with Globus removes many of the “touch points” of travel, including luggage handling, check in/out, expedited entry into attractions and more. Globus are further reducing risk with hands-free service, meaning all self-services replaced by staff, including buffet meals replaced with table service. Globus will also ensure hand sanitizing is available throughout each trip, on coach and in hotels.

COMMITMENT TO CLEAN

As a part of Globus' commitment to clean, Globus is requiring enhanced cleaning procedures with hotel partners, on motorcoaches, vehicles and throughout every trip, including additional daily disinfecting procedures that go above-and-beyond already strict health and safety procedures.

PARTNERS IN DISCOVERY AND IN HEALTH

Globus has strict health and safety protocols, which have been in place for years, focused on ensuring all aspects of operation- from vehicles and equipment used on trip to excursions and hotel procedures. This process will continue with new, elevated health and safety checks, to maintain their promise that each touch-point on tours and cruises are considered in their commitment to guest and team member well-being.

The tour surpassed my expectations. The pickup and drop off were on time and perfect. Jerusalem is amazing. We saw the ruins at Caesarea, CAPERNAUM and cruised on the Sea of Galilee. We went to visit the BAPTISMAL SITE at the Jordan river. The Dead Sea and Masada are breath taking. I floated in the Dead Sea briefly. People were rubbing clay on their bodys. But I did not. The hotels were clean and the food at the hotels was good. The western wall in Jerusalem was sacred and there were lot of people. The old city is incredible. I strongly recommend that every Christian should visit Jerusalem at least once.

The tour director was often unorganized, did not communicate proactively with the group and did not have a strong enough command of English to properly explain historical detail.

Due to religious reasons, we had to change the route. However, these religious holidays are known and the trip should have been planned accordingly. The hotel Dan Panorama in Jerusalem was not adequate: room too small for two people, and state of place leaving much to be desired (old, some broken items, rust in the bath).

This was my second trip with Affordable Tours. My booking agent could not have been better. He was great. My biggest disappointment with the tour was the guide. Although a very nice person and extremely knowledgeable, she was many times unorganized and did not do anything to bring the "group" together. As I said her knowledge was without a doubt wonderful.

Our guide lacked in personal communication; he was abrupt, argumentive and rude at times. This may be a cultural difference but still not a very desirable characteristic. The tour itinerary was very demanding, partly because our guide chose to add part of the next days agenda to two of our days. We were told that this was because of the Sabbath. We walked 5 hrs in the old city and then went to Bethlehem (scheduled for the following day) and had to walk for another two hrs. This was in 90 degree weather too. The other thing that was less than desirable was the coach...no place to put bottles, cameras, snacks on seat backs; there was no WC for emergencies.

We had a wonderful trip and the itinerary covered a lot of sights!!
