When going on a religious trip or tour, you get the fantastic opportunity to meet fellow believers and make new friends. Going on such a trip with your friends or a special group of people are memories made for life and it’s an incredible experience.
These trips often not only focus on the religious part of the destination but also the historical and cultural heritage. You’ll experience the cuisine and do sightseeing as well.
Jerusalem and the whole of Israel are definitely seen as one of the most sacred places in the world. With Mount Sinai in Egypt and The Jordan also being favorites amongst travelers.
Remember to pack extra flash drives or storage devices for your photos and comfortable walking shoes. A good travel tip from us for these tours would be to dress in layers. Always have something to “cover up” when visiting religious sights. Furthermore always remember to take store bought bottled water with you on these trips.
Both the Jordanian and Israeli sides of the Dead Sea offer unique experiences and attractions, so the decision of where to visit depends on your preferences and interests.
Be sure to take precautions to protect your skin and eyes from the strong sunlight and high salt content of the Dead Sea.
It is also important to be aware of the geopolitical situation in the region and to follow local customs and laws to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip.

The best time to visit Egypt and Jordan is from February to May and September to early November when the weather is colder, but the sun is still out. Traveling in May and September are exceptionally good months in Egypt because you will not pay the high-season prices.
The Monastery of Saints John and George of Choziba is also best known as Saint George Monastery in Wadi Qelt (Arabic: دير القديس جورج) or simply the Monastery of Choziba. It is located in Wadi Qelt, in the eastern West Bank, Jerusalem.
The monastery is open to the public daily (except on Sundays and certain holidays).
However in reference to our Travel Tip above, here is a strict dress code. No shorts for men; no trousers of any sort for women (women must wear a long skirt) and should wear a modest top.
These tours can be customized to suit your preference and you can request a private tour or slot in with a small group tour. There are special focus on social distancing and health safety, so you can enjoy less crowded places at the right time of day.
When booking one of these religious tours, it includes accommodation as well as an expert guide, meals, transport and more. You don’t have to worry about a thing…well except for what you will be packing.
Your guide will be knowledgeable and you can enjoy a safe and interesting trip. You select the tour package (see below) and the travel operator arranges everything.
My opinion is that it is also a great idea to link two tours to different destinations to create one fantastic multi-day package.
