Heartland to Holy Land - In the Footsteps Tour

Saturday, April 29 to Wednesday, May 10, 2023

Join one of the most exciting and engaging tours to Israel available today.

Walk in the footsteps of Abraham, David, Jesus, the Disciples and the Apostle Paul. Experience the Mediterranean coast, Galilee, Samaria and Judea, Jerusalem (both above and below ground), the Dead Sea, and more on a fantastic spring tour that weaves together the history, culture and land. You'll be transported through 3,500 years of Biblical history ending in modern Israel and the fulfillment of age-old promises. 

Plus, in our unique tour, you'll visit the homes of Israelis to hear their story. We will learn about their lives, struggles and hopes. We'll get their view on current events, culture and more and in the process become part of their story – Israel's story. 

On the Heartland to Holy Land Tour the Bible comes to life, prophecy is fulfilled and faith is renewed–all in the company of friends–both old and new.

Drawing on experiences of having lived in the land and dozens of tours, the Widamans are known for creating custom tours that defy the ordinary and inspire the soul. You won't want to miss this, their signature 2023 tour. Reservations are now being taken for the trip of a lifetime.

The main tour group departs Kansas City but guests are welcome from across the country.
