In conjunction with Israel Experts, a leading incoming tour operator, Anglia’s tour of the Holy Land focuses on the political situation involving Israel and the Palestinians. With an ever-present backdrop of Biblical and historical locations, this tour will examine the history of conflict in the region and the on-going peace process which is slowly – and it seems at times reluctantly – leading the region to emerge from the darkness of recent years.
The tour will include visits to:
Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Masada, the Sea of Galilee, Bethlehem, and of course Jerusalem; with highlights such as a night in a Bedouin camp, a visit to the Yad Vashem National Holocaust Memorial and an opportunity to swim in the Dead Sea, your students will see locations that have shaped the state of Israel and the Palestinian homelands. They will also have the opportunity to meet young people from both sides, understanding their differing experiences and viewpoints, making this an unforgettable educational experience.
A trip like this is about far more than examinations. For every boy that went, this was a life changing experience and they came back with a whole new perspective on the region.
