View details Educational Tours for group leaders What to expect on an educational tour Ministers, pastors or lay people who are looking to take a group out to Israel may be interested to know that some Tour Operators will periodically offer Educational Tours to popular pilgrimage destinations. These Tours are heavily subsidised by the suppliers i.e. Hotels, Coach Companies and Airlines and are designed for first time visitors who intend to take out their own pilgrimage tours.
The trips are designed to be an educational experience, not as pilgrimages in themselves, trips that will give pastors and leaders the tools and knowledge to return to their congregations and start organising a Holy Land pilgrimage for their church members.
You will be taken to the Holy sites, explaining how you can make your pilgrimage meaningful – a member of the Tour Operator’s senior management will normally escort you on these educational tours to answer all your questions as and when they arise.
During such a tour you will obtain first hand information on the key places to visit, suggested itineraries, hotels to use, guides to employ, travel and transit, indeed help with every aspect of your group’s pilgrimage so that you return to the UK equipped for your future visit.
The cost of the Educational tour is normally refunded in full to the leader when he/she leads their own group, however arrangements will vary amongst Tour Operators and we recommend you make enquiries at an early stage.
