A Catholic Pilgrimage to the Holy Land with Select International Tours

Written accounts of Catholic pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land to deepen their faith and walk where Jesus walked begin in the fourth century, although Christians have certainly venerated the sites there since the very beginning of our faith. Saint Helen went to the Holy Land in 324 and working with the local Christian people, found many of the sites pilgrims visit today. When traveling to the places where Jesus was born, preached, died, and rose again, it pays to have experts to guide you, so you can see the most important places, stay in the best hotels, eat at the best restaurants, and shop in stores that support the Christian population living there. Select International Tours, a trusted travel provider with 38 years of experience curates exceptional pilgrimages and can guide and care for you on this transformative journey.

I’m emailing to give a strong and heartfelt recommendation for our Holy Land guide, Hani. I recall that at some of the sights where Hani shared a short spiritual reflection/comment—and I happened to be scheduled to preach at Mass at that site—I thought that what he shared was as worthwhile and inspiring as anything I had preached or was planning to preach, depending on whose comments had come first.

Fr. Charles "Chuck" Wood

We had an excellent tour guide who was always on top of things. Everything ran so seemingly effortlessly, but I know he did a lot behind the scenes to be sure this was the case. The timing of all of our site visits always felt spot on in that we seemed to avoid the more crowded times and could more intimately enjoy all of our experiences


Our tour guide was amazing. The insights he added made every site a WOW factor.

Planning a trip to the Holy Land will naturally bring along questions of its own. Let’s dive a little deeper into some of these frequently asked questions to provide you with peace of mind.

What’s the Best Time to Go on a Pilgrimage?

The spring and fall months (March-May, September-November) offer pleasant weather for outdoor activities. However, the Holy Land is a popular destination year-round, so be prepared for crowds during peak seasons (Christmas and Easter). Select International Tours offers departures throughout the year to accommodate your preferences.

What’s the Typical Duration of a Pilgrimage?  

Our Catholic pilgrimages typically range from 8 to 12 days.  This allows ample time to visit all the major sites and participate in meaningful spiritual experiences.

What Physical Fitness Level Is Required?  

There will be a moderate amount of walking involved, so a basic level of fitness is recommended.  However, the pace is always comfortable, and our guides will ensure plenty of rest stops throughout the day.

What’s Included in the Pilgrimage Cost?  

Select International Tours offers all-inclusive packages that cover your flights, accommodations, meals, transportation within the Holy Land, entrance fees to all sites, and the expertise of our guides.

What Should I Pack on a Trip to the Holy Land?  

Comfortable walking shoes, modest clothing that covers shoulders and knees (especially for visits to holy sites), a hat, sunscreen, and a refillable water bottle are essential. You may also want to pack a small Bible and any religious articles that hold personal significance.

Are There Opportunities to Shop for Souvenirs?  

Yes, there will be time for shopping at local markets and stores selling religious items, handcrafted goods, and local delicacies.
