The Holy Land

McCabe is the UK’s premier operator of tours and Pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and it is unusual for someone to only travel there once. Most visit two or three times, some make an annual pilgrimage. Repetition is an age-old feature of pilgrimage. You visit the same places, but the experience changes every time. We offer a choice of Holy Land itineraries with departures throughout the year.

Bring Jesus’ time on Earth to life and follow in his footsteps. You will marvel at the natural beauty of the landscapes, rich history and will not fail to be moved. You may enter as a tourist, but you will exit as a pilgrim. We all know the story, we have heard of the Sermon on the Mount, the Angel Gabriel appearing to Mary, Jesus’ painful walk to his crucifixion, the feeding of the five thousand and the baptism of Jesus, yet nothing can prepare us for the emotional encounter of standing at these points where it took place and absorbing the energy and legacy left behind for all mankind. A legacy we invite you to experience and share, to create memories and spiritual awareness that will remain with you forever.

Itineraries

McCabe recommends our eight- and ten-day pilgrimages. Our shorter seven day pilgrimage is perfect for a first time visit to the Holy Land and contains all the major sites you would expect to visit, while keeping the cost down and accessible to many. Our ten-day tour truly is the pilgrimage of all pilgrimages and perfect to explore all the Holy Land sights without feeling hurried. Generally, with just two stays in Jerusalem and Tiberius there is no constant need to pack and unpack and you will feel relaxed as you follow the greatest story of all time. Our hotels in Jerusalem are close to the Old City walls. In Tiberius the location is on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and close to many famous biblical sights. Evenings watching the sun set and contemplating the days sights and experiences truly make this a wonderful experience.

Peace of Mind

McCabe is the UK’s premier operator of tours and Pilgrimages to the Holy Land with over 40 years’ experience.

Organising a Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage is our speciality and in 2023 we celebrate our 40th year in business – so we must be doing something right! We work with all denominations and are happy to tailor every pilgrimage to the needs of each particular church. For instance, some parties would plan one or two Eucharists during their pilgrimage but others will choose a daily celebration. In the Holy Land, your focus may be the Galilean ministry or a re-creation of Holy Week in Jerusalem. You tell us what your particular interest is and we will recommend an itinerary
