Tour Costs

The cost of the land package (based on a minimum of twenty person), $2,290, is inclusive of ground transportation in Israel and Palestine, double occupancy accommodations, tips, entrance fees, guides, breakfasts and dinners. Cost of the land package for less than twenty: 18 registrants ($2,390); 16 ($2,545); 14 ($2,735); 12 ($2,975). A deposit of $400 is required with trip registration. Final payment is due sixty days prior to departure. The registration deadline is December 15, 2018.

Participants will book and pay for their own roundtrip air transportation from their originating cities to Tel Aviv. Those who wish to travel with the group will depart out of Newark to Tel Aviv on United Airlines. Contact us for flight information. We recommend not booking one's flight until it is announced that the trip is a "go". Others may want to make their arrangements on another airline. If your flight arrives more than an hour past the group's arrival time, there will be an extra charge (typically $120) to be picked up at the airport and brought to Bethlehem. Should you need help booking your ticket, please call us.

Participants are responsible for passport application fees, a single room supplement ($500, should you choose to room alone), travel insurance, the cost of lunches, bottled water and other beverages and souvenirs. Two to three lunches will be reserved in advance; participants will be expected to pay the fixed price (usually around $15). Should a participant desire a roommate we will do our best to accommodate, but if there is not one available you will be responsible for paying the single supplement.

Partial refunds are available if, for health or another reason judged serious by the tour hosts and the Siraj Center, you must cancel.

Notes

Books

Introduce yourself to some of the issues we'll be exploring by reading Blood Brothers by Fr. Chacour, I Am a Palestinian Christian by Mitri Raheb, Occupied with Nonviolence: A Palestinian Woman Speaks by Jean Zaru, and The General's Son by Miko Peled and/or The Lemon Tree by Sandy Tolan. Our favorite trip preparation reads for first-time travelers to Palestine/Israel are Fr. Chacour's and Miko Peled's books.
