The minimum age to participate is 16 years old. Please keep in mind that the registration pricing for minors (under 18) is the same for those over 18. A signed letter of consent will be required for minors joining the Jesus Trek.
The dates for each Jesus Trek will be posted on the website. Please note that the touring days in Israel do not include your travel time. You will need to arrive in Israel before the start of “Day One” of the program. Day One of the program starts at 6PM.

Airport transfers to and from the airport are departing every 2 hours. There will be a Jesus Trek representative at the airport to assist you upon your arrival.
Further instructions will be given to you at the hotel in Tel Aviv.
Registration pricing is based on double occupancy (two people sharing a room). If you are traveling alone, you will be assigned a single room and your package price will be higher.
Because lodging is based on double occupancy, the rate is higher for single guest registrations, as you will be receiving your own room.
If you prefer a specific roommate on the Jesus Trek Tour, it is a must to register together as a two guest registration.
Yes. You can add a roommate to your registration, which will lower your overall cost. Please contact WWV directly to do this. Different bedding arrangements can be requested.
