Walk in the footsteps of Jesus and St. Peter as you retrace their paths building The Church…
Christian Tours has a long history of working with Catholic pilgrim groups to the Holy Land, handling tours for groups from Europe, the USA, Canada, and Africa.
Some of the more prominent Catholic groups we have assisted include:
- The seminar of priests (Wiener Priesterseminar) led by His Eminence Cardinal Koenig of Austria
- Pilgrimage organized by Kolpingwerk, Cologne, for a period of more than 15 years and led by the former General praeses
- Prelate Heinrich Festing
- Annual pilgrimage tours of the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria with the General Secretary Rev. Fr. George Ehusani
Not only do we handle all other aspects of a Holy Land tour, we also are happy to make arrangements for the daily celebration of Holy Mass for groups traveling with a priest. Our office works with the shrines of Jerusalem, Nazareth, Bethlehem and the Basilica of the Transfiguration on Mt. Tabor. All arrangements are made in collaboration with the Christian Information Center.
In addition to offering accommodations in all grades of hotels, we are able to accommodate groups in Catholic houses such as the Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center, the Guesthouse of the Pope, the Sisters of Zion Hospice located on the Via Dolorosa in the Old City of Jerusalem, other hospices in Nazareth and throughout the country.
It would be our pleasure to help you design the trip that best suits your needs, whether that is one of our most popular tours that takes you to all of the most visited locations in Israel that interest Catholic visitors, or a custom tour designed just for your unique group.
We will do whatever we can to ensure you leave Israel with lasting memories, a meaningful experience and seeing the Bible come to life in the Holy Land!

Requested grade of hotel
