MODIIN, Israel, March 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Identity Travel Israel, an Educational cross-cultural tour operator today announced the launching of its new Christian Travel website at http://www.Christian-Tour.com. The new website includes a variety of educational travel itineraries for all Christian denominations.
The new Christian tours as well as the Christian Travel website were developed for the benefit of Identity Travel's growing Christian customer base as part of its mission to promote understanding through educational travel.
The Israeli tourism ministry estimates that close on 2.4 million Christian tourists visited Israel in 2010. One-third of them were pilgrims who visited holy sites in Israel and the West Bank including: Nazareth, Capernaum, the Sea of Galilee, the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the Via Dolorosa, and the Mount of Olives and Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus.
Identity Travel is known for emphasizing the educational aspect of travel by integrating discussion groups, panels and lectures as well as other educational activities into the tour and in context with the sightseeing itinerary.
"Israel is the backdrop to the entire New Testament, so the influx in Christian-based travel in Israel is natural," says Eran Kolran, Director and Co-Founder at Identity Travel Israel; "What is revolutionary about the new Christian Travel website is its innovative Christian tours that go way beyond sightseeing and provide a true learn-as-you-travel experience."
The Christian Travel website includes off-the-shelf itineraries such as: "Walk in His Footsteps" classic pilgrimage tour, "This is Jesus: A biographical tour of the holy land", "Support Israel Tour", an Academic Christian Tour and "Jerusalem: a City in the Sky" 4 day excursion.
