A trip to Israel is one of the most impacting and profound experiences with the heart of God. The treasure and riches that the Holy Spirit will impart and make alive inside of you are indescribable. As you walk the land, encounter the Lord and experience your Bible coming alive — you have a profound awakening of the covenant keeping heart of God and His eternal Word and promises that will never fail.

As Israel became a nation once again on May 14, 1948 (fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 66) you become aware that the time of the Gentiles is racing towards a completion and now God is about to do His most magnificent work in Israel with the revelation of His Son – The Messiah and King (Romans 9-11).

This tour will no doubt be an epic journey with the presence of God that will be life changing. In addition, it is vitally important that we participate and cooperate with the Holy Spirit for specific assignments as we go to Israel. God has given us a mandate, purpose and objective for this journey.

Our mandate is two-fold.

1. To impart and form in believers & leaders a heart for Israel.

  • Education
  • Impartation
  • Empowerment

2. To make a strategic impact in the land and people of Israel.

  • Lifting up a sound of prayer, worship and the proclamation of the Gospel
  • Making apostolic and prophetic decrees that bless Israel, pierce the atmosphere and prepare the way for the revelation of Jesus.
  • Connecting, strengthening and encouraging key ministries, political, messianic, and Jewish leaders in the land.


We will be staying in 5 star hotels and first class travel throughout our tour and ministry.

Steve and Tonya HansenWe are excited to invite you on the journey of a lifetime, “The Journey of His Presence in Israel”.

The land of Israel is a special place. There really is no place like it on earth. Words could never adequately describe what will happen in your heart and spirit as you journey across God’s covenant land. You have to experience it. The Bible will literally come to life in a new way and your heart and mindset will be forever changed.

In scripture the nation of Israel speaks of four realms: The Past, the Present, the Future and the Eternal. Come learn and discover hidden mysteries as we peel back the layers of scripture while journeying across the land.

Join us as we travel through God’s prophetic timepiece in the earth… the land of Israel. On our trip we will visit places like:

  • Caesarea – The location Paul set out on his apostolic journeys to spread the Gospel to the nations
  • Bethlehem – The birthplace of Yeshua
  • Galilee – The region where Yeshua spent most of His ministry years, touching lives and changing hearts
  • Jordan River – Be baptized in the Jordan and see where the children of Israel crossed over
  • Jericho – See the ancient ruins of Jericho and visit where Elisha healed the waters
  • Mt Carmel – The location where fire fell down from heaven and Elijah, challenged the prophets of Baal and showed forth the power of the Lord
  • Jaffa – Visit Simon the Tanner’s house where Peter received revelation from the Lord that the Gospel was not just for the Jews, but also for the Gentiles
  • Jerusalem – Spend time in worship and prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane, walk the Via Dolorosa to Golgotha ending in worship and communion at the Garden Tomb
  • On site times of worship and prayer as well as various local houses of prayer
  • …and so much more

Register today to embark with us on the journey of a lifetime!

I’d love to personally invite you to join us for “Journey Of His Presence in ISRAEL”  this fall.

This trip is a great investment that will yield a lifetime of dividends. It is such a surreal feeling to spend time in places you’ve heard about your whole life. Imagine the smell of olive trees as you walk through the garden of gethsemane and the sound of the breeze as you look over the shepherds hills of Bethlehem. Imagine floating weightless in the Dead Sea, standing on the mount of transfiguration, walking through Hezekiah’s Tunnels, and hiking the trails where David wrote the Psalms. That’s just one day in Israel.

Visiting Israel is truly an immersive experience that engages your spirit and your senses. Don’t miss this trip of a lifetime.

Come join us,

Be amazed and awed at how the word becomes alive in a new way as you walk throughout the places written about in scripture.

The short answer is Yes! Every year between 3 and 4 million tourists vacation in Israel – and apart from those who fall in love with Israel and stay – they all go home again safe and sound. The planes of 90+ airlines wouldn’t fly to Israel if it weren’t safe, so you can rest assured. You will be safe.

We take every precaution and do whatever is necessary to assure the safety of the group. We are fully committed to making your experience in Israel both a safe one and a positive one. We travel with some of the top tour guides in Israel. We continually monitor the situation in Israel and if ever we believed we could not provide an experience that is both safe and celebratory, we would postpone the trip. Rest assured that you are in good hands and we are extremely confident in our travels through the Holy Land.

Tipping of the tour guide, bus driver, porters and hotel wait staff is covered in the tour package. However, if you go out to local cafe’s and restaurants you will want to tip similar to 10-15% of bill. That is not covered in your tour package.

Please note, we will recommend at the end of the tour a love offering for the tour guide and bus driver to bless them and the land of Israel. It does help them and truly bless them.

Tap water in Israel is safe and delicious. You’ll also find bottle water everywhere. Some areas of Israel are very dry and hot, therefore it’s important to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated.

We strongly recommend travel insurance to all travelers, if you are interested in purchasing insurance we recommend you call Gate1 Travel to find out about their insurance offered.  Click here to learn more about Arch Insurance for our Israel trip or contact our travel agent directly for more details; Ryan Forster 800-682-3333 ext. 1369.

1. Like almost everywhere in the world, casual is the “rule” for everyday sightseeing. Bring good walking shoes or sneakers and a couple “layers” for cool nights air.

2. Please bring casual business dress outfit for the time of visiting the Knesset.

3. Don’t forget your swimsuit for the Dead Sea, Jordan Baptismal site (if you want to get baptized) and Hezekiah’s Tunnel as well as plastic shoes or aqausox. All locations have changing facilities.

The Shekel; it’s abbreviated as NIS (New Israeli Shekel). We advice for you to check the exchange rate prior and or during your trip. At present it is around 3.4/3.6 shekels per USD.  Click here for the current conversion rate

You can also use your ATM card to obtain Shekels at ATM’s throughout Israel. You can also use American Express, MasterCard and Visa cards at most Israeli hotels, restaurants and stores.

We suggest that you do phone your credit card company before you travel to give them the dates and locations of your travel so they will be alerted and not freeze your card due to suspicious activity.

Tel Aviv to Jerusalem 37 miles, 50 minutes​
Tel Aviv to Masada​ ​63 miles, 90 minutes
Tel Aviv to Galilee/Tiberias ​81 miles, 100 minutes
Tel Aviv to Haifa​ ​90 miles, 70 minutes

Most hotels in Israel offer Wi-Fi for guests for free and or customary price. Many cafes and restaurants provide complementary Wi-Fi service. Tel Aviv offers a citywide free Wi-Fi network which provides more then 80 free Internet “hot spots” across the city.

For cellular phones if you have an international plan, your cell phone may work in Israel, please check with your local provider. American cell-phones that work overseas will work in Israel too. Israel is 6 or 7 hours ahead of the East Coast of the USA depending on the season. The country code to dial to Israel is + 972.

We recommend 1 suitcase & 1 personal bag per traveler.

American citizens need a passport valid at least 6 months after their departure. You will not need a visa entering Israel if you are an American citizen. If you have a different nationality or have a passport from a different nation, please visit the Israeli embassy website by clicking here to see if you are required to have a visa to enter Israel.

Very Important: Your passport must be valid for six months after the date of your scheduled return from Israel or they will not let you enter the country.

Israel is an ultra-modern country with the world’s highest number of doctors per capita, and a health and hospital system that is the envy of the world. No vaccinations are required to visit Israel (unless you have recently been in an area where there have been epidemics of yellow fever, cholera or ebola). You can buy most standard over-the-counter equivalent of North American drugs in Israel. You can also bring supplies of your standard prescription drugs with you. (If you need to bring syringes and vials of medicine – bring along a letter from your doctor attesting to your needs, just in case.) If you need to see a doctor in Israel, check with your hotel concierge. Travel insurance (including medical coverage) is always recommended for all foreign travel.)

Tour guides make an effort to balance the tour schedule and free time for shopping in certain areas. There is specific allotted time for shopping in Jerusalem, Dead Sea area, Jericho and Bethlehem. Many nights are free as well and you’ll have the opportunity to explore and shop local markets on your own as you please.

If you plan to get back your VAT money, please read this carefully. If you have questions, ask your tour guide while in Israel.

Purchases can be made in Israeli Shekels, U.S. dollars or Euros. Tourists who have purchased items with a value exceeding $100 (including VAT) in stores that are registered with the Ministry of Tourism or in stores participating in the VAT-refund plan are entitled to a refund of VAT when they leave the country.

Stores that offer VAT refund service have a special sign.

To receive VAT refund, ensure that you get and keep a receipt with a list of all the items you have purchased and details of the purchaser. The receipt and purchases must be put into a sealed bag.

Tourists must then go to the “Change Place” at Ben Gurion airport or other exit port. If you wish to send the items that you purchased with your luggage, you must declare the purchase at the security check, and present your passport, flight ticket, purchases and receipts at the counter. The attendant will open the bag, examine the contents, sign the receipt, and refund the VAT in any currency minus a commission. The VAT refund can also be sent to your address abroad for an additional charge.

There is no VAT refund for the following items: food, drinks, tobacco products, electrical appliances, cameras, film or other photography equipment.

Additional information about VAT refunds is available here.

Hebrew and Arabic are the Israeli official languages, however many, many people also speak English. You’ll even find many street signs written in English so if all you know in Hebrew is “Shalom” for hello & goodbye, don’t be afraid to travel to Israel. You’ll get along just fine.

For cell phones & tablets you need a plug tip adapter. Smart devices (android, iPhones, Kindles, iPads) can convert between 110v/220v by themselves and do not need a full power converter, only the plug-tip adapter. We recommend getting a universal adapter and converter kit. (Please note, most converter kits cannot handle the watt pull for a dryer.)

Sometimes. But it is for your safety. On check-in for your flights you may be asked a variety of questions during a security interview. Some of the questions may seem un-PC, intrusive, irrelevant or repetitive.  Just answer truthfully, tell the security you are on a tour, have your tour information with you just in case, go with the flow and don’t lose your cool. Remember, the questions are designed to protect you and your fellow passengers. When you leave Israel, the departure process is identical to that outlined above for all airlines.
