Here's what others have to say about traveling to Israel...
"Wow! A trip that satisfied curiosity, clarified history, and bolstered faith. Even with my eagerness to go, I could not have anticipated how blessed I would be traveling through the Bible lands and learning more about the events of the Old Testament and the life of Jesus as I walked in those ancient places. I came to appreciate more fully the Bible lessons and the spiritual significance of the stories God preserved in His word. I cannot imagine that someone would not return from such a trip without an immediate desire to return, to learn more, and simply to give thanks to the Lord for all that He has done for the human race. This is a trip not to be missed.
In John and Carla Moore, travelers will have knowledgeable and spiritually minded companions and guides. Each of these has a deep knowledge of God's word and extensive experience traveling through Israel's Bible locations. This trip will be carefully planned and executed, assuring that every traveler will learn more about the Bible message and draw closer to the Lord through this experience. Having traveled with each of these, I count them among those I respect most highly for their love for God and their love of His word. It was a privilege for me to have shared with them a study of the Bible lands, and I know that you will be thankful you made this trip."

"Want to have an image in your mind when your preacher mentions the City of Capernaum? How about the Garden of Gethsemane? Or maybe you'd like to stand on the banks of the Sea of Galilee and imagine Jesus and his disciples standing in the same spot! Want to go in and feel the cold darkness of a 1st Century Tomb?
Do you picture all of the Bible Lands being just a dry ugly desert? You just might be surprised at the lushness and beauty of some parts of Israel! As a Christian, you need to go experience it yourself. You could go to Hawaii, or you could go to Yellowstone, but why not go see the incredible places that you hopefully are reading and studying about every week?
Strengthen your faith and broaden your horizons all at the same time.
You wont find a better, more enjoyable group to go with. John and Carla Moore bring a lot of knowledge and passion about the places you'll see.
'Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.' (Mark Twain)

"Visiting the lands of the Bible was one of the most enlightening experiences of my life. As a Bible student, I love the truth of Scripture. After seeing the places where many Biblical events occurred, my understanding of the finer details recorded in Scripture blossomed in a way that I did not know possible. Now, when I hear many different passages of scripture, visions of actual places in my memory immediately come into my mind. Scriptures like 'on this rock, I will build my church,' 'a landowner who planted a vineyard and put a wall around it and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower,' or 'in order to thrown him down the cliff,' are now associated with a specific place and geography. The extent of Solomon’s holdings, the importance of the prophets of Baal, and the impact of Herod the Great are now concrete details that I don’t simply have to imagine or wonder about. I have firsthand knowledge that helps me understand scripture.
If a person wants to understand scripture better, I know of no method as powerful as actually visiting the lands of the Bible with knowledgeable, trustworthy leaders. I would not trade my experience for ten vacations to other places.
In 2015, I was part of a trip to Israel led by John Moore, with his wife Carla, and Dr. Jonathan Moore. All three were leaders who were tireless in their preparations and attention to detail. They bent over backward to make sure the trip went smoothly and efficiently, working late into the night to iron out last minute details for the following day. Even at the end of the 17-day trip, in spite of exhaustion and homesickness, they remained kind and understanding to everyone involved. They all proved a wonderful reflection of the love of Christ.
John Moore is a wonderfully gentle leader, with a drive to get things done but a very light touch when dealing with different personalities. He understands Biblical geography better than any teacher I’ve ever known. He is easy to talk to and has a constant drive to make sure everyone has a positive experience. John’s wife Carla is a picture of support and organization. She constantly encourages, double-checks, and lifts up. On our trip, Carla displayed the heart of a servant more than anyone else. I cannot imagine that anyone helped everyone to the extent that Carla did. The Moores are veteran guides to the lands of the Bible. Any group under their leadership is guaranteed a meaningful, enlightening experience. I completely trust their ability to guide people into truth in a way that blesses the guests more than anyone could ask."
