Questions and Answers
"How does the price of this tour compare to other 10-day tours?"
An Octagon Tour is priced right about in the middle with other Holy Land tours. But consider this - for most people, going to the Holy Land is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so you don't want this to be just about the price. If you're going to do this once, you want to do it right. The old saying is true - you get what you pay for. We don't want you to be disappointed in the quality of your guide, and we certainly don't want you to miss the sites that you really came to Israel to see. Watch our video here to find out the difference between an Octagon Tour, and an ordinary tour to the Holy Land.
"Is Israel safe?"
"Yes. Israel is our second home. Don't be misled by the media. It is one of the safest countries in the world to visit. In fact, the very safest place in Israel at any given moment is on a tour bus.
Since the beginning of the State of Israel in 1948, there has never been one injury to any group tourist as a result of a terrorist attack. In fact, groups travel to Israel every day by the droves from all over the world. This is why we feel safe taking both our children and grandchildren there. Our groups are all respected by everyone in Israel.
If you've been following the news, you will notice that lone-wolf terrorists only target Jews. In contrast, all of the Palestinians appreciate Christian tourists, because they bring money.
The bottom line is that protecting our travelers is very high on our list, and we wouldn't do anything that would compromise this principle."
