Visiting the Holy Land is a dream come true for most Christians. To be able to walk in Jesus' footsteps and pray where Jesus prayed is awe inspiring as well as easy - it's less than a five-hour flight away.
Israel is the Holy Land; a country where you will be able to see the Bible come to life as you take a tour through the Scriptures.
Located on the eastern slope of Mount Zion, St. Peter in Gallicantu was built in the 5th century and is believed to be the location of Caiaphas’ house, the setting for the story of Peter’s denial of his connection with Jesus on the night of his trial and the shedding of his self-recriminatory tears.

Estimates suggest that there were 10.5 million visits to Jerusalem’s Western Wall in 2012. An Israeli national symbol and arguably Judaism’s most sacred site, the wall was built by Herod the Great in the first century when he broadened Solomon’s Temple Mount with an extended eastern wall and new western, northern and southern walls. The major increase in worship and tourism has spurred on the construction of new facilities to accommodate the increased traffic to the site.
The Israel Ministry of Tourism have launched a massive new Christian YouTube channel promoting faith-based tourism to the Holy Land.
