A corresponding cost increase may occur if additional nights/meals are necessary.
Physical Requirements & Responsibility
Seeing Israel with Messianic Journeys is not a looking-out-the-bus-window-experience. Our tours are a feet-on-the-ground adventure that requires travelers to be in generally good health and are responsible to have independent mobility and strength.
There is a significant amount of walking over uneven archaeological terrain and nature pathways as well as up hills and ancient stairs. To participate in this tour successfully, you should be able to climb two flights of stairs without assistance and walk at a modest pace for a mile, as well as be able to stand in possibly hot weather.
Individuals registering for this journey accept the responsibility for being in good health and able to walk without assistance. If you require a cane, crutches, wheelchair, or personal assistance to walk, sorry but this is not the trip for you. You must be physically able to independently walk and travel with the tour group. If you have any questions about this, please contact us.
Messianic Journeys Biblical and Educational Ministries and our Israeli tour host, Sar-El Tours and Conferences, reserves the right to limit participation in this tour at their discretion and for any reason.
Your payment for this tour signifies full understanding and acceptance of all the above-mentioned conditions and terms.
