I am a Christian Pastor and some of our church has recently voiced a desire to send me to Israel for a guided trip. There is an obvious personal desire for me to see as much as I can for a broad perspective, but I also want the trip to be given by a Christian tour group that focuses specifically on the various "holy sites". In other words, because my church is sending me, I have a strong desire to see the "Christian" places specifically but I also personally would like to take in as much varied exposure as possible . It seems like several of the threads I have read have advised against the Christian tours citing that there is more to see in the modern city of Israel than "just the religious sites".
I am reaching out to trip advisor for some help/recommendations. I have never been to Israel or the surrounding areas before, so I am definitely a novice regarding this kind of trip.
I am looking for recommendations regarding travel packages/companies. If you have personal experience that would be preferred.
Thanks in advance for any help
