If you want to know the truth about what is happening in Israel and the occupied territories, go on this trip. I learned everything I thought I wanted to know, and then some. I will never forget the things I saw, and the people was privileged to meet.Andy, 2019

Update on travel arrangements
You still cannot travel to Israel as individuals or organise your own visit. You have to travel with an Israeli tour company and you all have to catch the same flight out and the same flight back at the end of the tour. There can’t be any ‘off-tour’ additional days.
Unfortunately this has meant we have had to postpone our tours due to start on Sunday October 31st 2021 and Sunday November 7th 2021.
We are working on arrangements to make this possible for our groups next year. However, we hope – in any case – these restrictions will soon be lifted and independent travel will be possible to Israel and Palestine again soon.
We have tours scheduled on Sunday 30th January and Sunday 29th of May and very much hope and expect they can continue as scheduled.
We will contact everyone on our mailing list as soon as restrictions are lifted – or alternatively we are able to put on a tour with an Israel-registered tour operator.
We appreciate that people need time to make arrangements and book time off and we will offer a choice of dates as soon as we are able to do so. We will return deposits if people are unable to find a suitable date.
Here is the advice from both the UK and Israel.
UK Travel advice: “The FCDO advises against all travel to Gaza and all but essential travel to the remainder of the Occupied Palestinian Territories (beyond East Jerusalem) based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.” https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/israel
Israeli travel restrictions: “As of September 19, 2021… tourists can now visit Israel as long as they are traveling in a group of 5 or more people, arriving and departing together, and are fully vaccinated….
Currently, tourists cannot enter Israel as individuals, unless they are coming to visit a first degree relative or have other special permission…
The re-opening of Israel for individual tourists not traveling in a group is currently not scheduled.” https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/israel
